@  Qwagmire : (10 August 2014 - 06:49 PM) Congrats to Rory, Rickie is this close, but I think Tiger would have shit razor blades if Phil won
@  TWshoot67 : (10 August 2014 - 03:23 PM) to = two
@  TWshoot67 : (10 August 2014 - 03:23 PM) J - like both of your last to SHOUTS, I say Let's Go Rickie!
@  J13 : (10 August 2014 - 03:21 PM) If I see the Rory and Omega watch commercial again i'm going to kick in the tv screen
@  J13 : (10 August 2014 - 02:52 PM) Oh this is shaping up to be an EPIC sunday at the PGA Champ. !!!!!
@  MWP : (08 August 2014 - 09:42 PM) @TW Since Fowler put work into his swing with Butch and cut his hair my opinion on him has completely changed, I'd like to see him squeak this one out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 08:08 PM) Although Steve Striker winning would be pretty cool too...
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 08:07 PM) Is anyone else pulling for Rickie Fowler this weekend?
@  KyCutter : (08 August 2014 - 05:13 PM) He should be smarter than that TW. That's my point. If he's hurt. Quit
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 04:11 PM) he's probably going to gut it out hurt himself some more just so he don't have to listen to media and naysayers who say he's faking his injuries
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 04:10 PM) he's already posted an 81 @ The Open few years back.
@  KyCutter : (08 August 2014 - 02:38 PM) Pushed putt. Pulled back. Time to WD. No way will he post 80
@  rfdegen : (08 August 2014 - 10:17 AM) Not contrary, from someone with a bad back, just amazed he's playing this week. Un-freakin-believable.
@  TWshoot67 : (07 August 2014 - 01:08 PM) It's all what have you done lately in todays world. Sorry I just don't give up on Tiger so easy. I'm a fanboy! lol
@  TWshoot67 : (07 August 2014 - 01:07 PM) I love how people are so contrary, less then 10 months ago Tiger had 5 wins and was #1 WGR. Now it's like he should just toss it in an quit his career is over, LOL
@  Qwagmire : (07 August 2014 - 10:47 AM) any guesses when the spasms happen? I got front nine Friday
@  KyCutter : (07 August 2014 - 08:27 AM) I suspect the "spasms" are creeping back into the picture.
@  HossOnMoss : (06 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) He did say it was spasms...real or not. Anyone that didn't think he would tee it up this week is nuts. There's no way he was missing the PGA once he made his statement sunday.
@  KyCutter : (06 August 2014 - 04:06 PM) Tired indeed ROBO…miraculous recovery tho'
@  ROBOPTI : (06 August 2014 - 02:43 PM) Really ??? ... Just a tired show
@  rfdegen : (06 August 2014 - 11:50 AM) Tiger on the range at Valhalla! Unbelievable!

@  TWshoot67 : (01 August 2014 - 12:27 PM) Well don't know about Hummingbirds speaking English, but all I was trying to infer was that everytime the media and others toss Tiger aside he does something no one else does in golf. It's amazing how everyone already forgot the guy won 5 times last year. He's been injured all year. I could care less if he plays the Ryder Cup
@  BingHogan : (01 August 2014 - 12:05 PM) Read where some MIT grad had the idea of a 3ft cup. Yeah, that should really work. :lol2:
@  BingHogan : (01 August 2014 - 12:01 PM) So, when Tiger wins the 15th, that should bring golf back from the doldrums!
@  ROBOPTI : (01 August 2014 - 10:05 AM) ... and if humingbirds start speaking English .... yada yada yada ... That is EXACTLY what I saying. It's time to treat Tiger like everyone else .. He has earned that. That "aura" .. that "mystique" INSIDE the ropes - not outside - IS OVER. I think that's why this topic gets so heated. WE - the peeps are still drinking the Koolaide - and that's cool ... TRUST ME!!!! .. Inside the ropes ... They quit drinking that a longtime ago. Do we want to win - or have another episode of "X Factor" - cuz he doesn't concern Europe - AT ALL
@  TWshoot67 : (01 August 2014 - 09:44 AM) So for arguements sake Tiger finds his game wins 2 of last 3 events you still say he don't deserve to play on RC, don't count Tiger out yet!
@  ROBOPTI : (01 August 2014 - 07:43 AM) Too bad he probably will ... even though he doesn't deserve it ... glass half full though - be fun to watch

@  TJR : (25 July 2014 - 10:00 PM) Love my 64s! They're the closest I've found to being a perfect all-around iron (appearance, feel, forgiveness).
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 05:34 PM) Should read: are great... Duh!
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 05:32 PM) KBS V Tour is really good too, maybe a touch light but dispersion and feel is great.
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 05:31 PM) The MP 4 is a fine iron but there ain't nothin wrong with the 64 either!
@  TJR : (25 July 2014 - 03:42 PM) I've only hit a MP-4 6 iron in a simulator, but it felt great as to be expected! The only new release I've seen pictures of is the MP-15, which doesn't really interest me.
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 10:48 AM) Mizuno, where are those new MP 65's or ???. Hitting an MP 4 w/ KBS V Tour.
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 10:46 AM) Rusty!? 99% of them would be happy to be that rusty!
@  TJR : (24 July 2014 - 03:52 PM) It would be hard to argue that he isn't the greatest player of all time. It's only a matter of time before he breaks Snead's win record.
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 08:42 PM) That would still only be about 1/2 the wins of what Tiger will have when he hangs up the spikes.... But yet the haters will hate and that's life. Tiger still has 10 more years to win on PGA Tour .
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 08:39 PM) Well Dave we must be in the minority or too old to realize who's still one of the best golfers in the history of the game. When/ IF Rory and Speith have 50 wins in their careers then maybe I'll hold them in esteem with TIGER!
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 08:34 PM) Sorry MrParr1Noid, it was my auto spell check, I didn't even notice until you said that, No slip showing here.
@  petter7 : (23 July 2014 - 08:28 PM) Hmmm. Let's see…Tiger wins 5 times, leading money winner, player-of-the-year, #1 in the world, LAST YEAR!! And that was with a bad back!! Back is fixed with no more pain and he's still fit as any other tour player and he's washed up? LMAO
@  J13 : (23 July 2014 - 08:16 PM) Time will tell with Tiger but I hope Rory just doesn't disappear again for 2 years.
@  MrParr1Noid : (23 July 2014 - 08:15 PM) Then I suggest you re-read your response to me about 4 posts down. Your slip is showing .. :) .. Don't have time for your silly games either .. I"m out ..
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:56 PM) I don't know where you got shit 67 from shoot67 but it shows your mentality
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:53 PM) Tiger is far from done , he's got plenty of years to win b4 Champions Tour
@  MrParr1Noid : (23 July 2014 - 07:52 PM) I just have to laugh at that one TWshiit67, not about trashing Tiger but about Tiger's growning jowls like an old man.. :)
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:52 PM) Every time tiger doesn't win his career is over say so called experts then he rattles off 5 wins in one year, neither Rory or Speith have done that in any one season. And tiger diid it last year. Once Tiger plays a few more rounds he will win again.
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:49 PM) I just have to laugh at that one Mr Parr1Noid, not about protecting Tiger just laughing at GC proclaiming or anointing the next greatest every other week. Edit: Fixed Spelling,
@  MrParr1Noid : (23 July 2014 - 07:18 PM) Guys are so overly protective of Tiger. Tiger won't ever be the same (young) as he once was.. :) Guys like Rory and Speith are (younger) just coming into their game.. :) Tiger should be getting ready for the seniors tour cause he ain't never going to compete with these young guys again.
@  J13 : (23 July 2014 - 06:08 PM) haha agree TW. Speith is the new Rory?

Vokey wedges are the most popular. If you are trying to come up with suggestions for new wedges, you shouldn't follow the trends. Look into a company that has alot of options and what works best for you. Scratch makes great wedges and has probably the best wedge options on the market. To me wedges are the most important clubs in my bag and I play what works best regardless of brand or popularity.

As everyone has stated the major companies are the most popular but scratch golf makes some great wedges and highly customizable. Most important thing is getting the correct lofts and correct grinds.

Definitely agree 100%. The most important part about buying wedges isn't what anyone else is using; it is what is right for you. It depends largely on your swing, set makeup, and what shots you want to hit. There are so many factors that go into these things, though (like playing surface, sand texture, loft requirements, etc...) that you really need to consult with someone qualified to point you in the right direction. If you can't do an in person consultation and fitting, your next best thing is to do it over the phone or via email.

I've heard from 2 different Tour players that the TM wedges with the new Z-TP faces really spin a lot less than the C-C Vokeys. Several guys have gone away from the TM wedges as a result. I played with my brother on the weekend and he was using the Z-TP and there were a few times where he hit shots that should have stopped even with the new grooves and they just rolled out that little bit more than expected...... One chip out of the rough it was very noticeable..... Granted it was the only time he was in the rough and the grooves didn't stop him from making 9 birdies......

I will say that the 48* head he has is the best looking wedge I've ever seen.

Grinds can obviously be customized, so the sole shouldn't be a major issue if you are looking to find the best wedges for your game and are willing to go the custom route which is key if you truly want to play what is best for your game. Otherwise, it comes down to finding a head that suits your eye and finding one that has the best performance in terms of the grooves which I think gets overlooked and taken for granted more than just about anything else when it comes to wedges.

Eventhough there are limitations and maximum requirements when it comes to groove volume, depth, spacing, and edge radius, it does not mean that all grooves are basically designed to perform to the max and will all be the same. The spin and consistency (or lack thereof) that is created by some of the more poorly designed heads that are out there can really cost you strokes whether the average player realizes it or not. It doesn't matter if you have the most perfectly crafted and fit wedge grind if the head that it is applied to is poorly designed or cheaply manufactured. You may prefer Ping, Cleveland, Titleist, TM, or Callaway wedges which is fine. But, I would suggest not taking the grooves in a head for granted and assuming that it's just all about the right loft, bounce, and look of a wedge. They are some of the most important clubs in your bag and in general are probably the most poorly fit ones as well simply because a lot of golfers take the choices that they have for granted and do not realize the performance differences that exist as you we all know and expect in a driver for instance.

When I look at bag pics posted on this site and others. I see vokey wedges in more pro bags that are not on staff with them then any other. Mostly you see others playing the 60's. I think the reason is they feel softest and spin hard. All the wedges also have different feel from really firm to soft.

I agree. From what I've seen, more non-staffers will play vokeys than any other brand. I'd say Cleveland is second with callaway being third. You don't see too many non-staffers playing Ping (except when the Eye2 was briefly allowed this year) or TM lately. Other than that, I think the rest play the brand they are on staff with. Obviously, there are the exceptions like the guys playing Fourteen wedges.
