After Robert Streb's back nine at the Old White, who at Titleist makes a better putter these days, Scotty Cameron or Bob Vokey???

@  ResearchX : (09 June 2015 - 06:08 PM)

Congratulations Marcus & wife!!!

@  TWshoot67 : (05 June 2015 - 05:11 PM)

Sorry I missed all the excitement, Congrats Marcus! God Bless you all.

@  J13 : (03 June 2015 - 06:02 PM)

Marcus we just had our 3rd in October which finally was a girl. We are out manned in our house but it's a helluva good time. Congrats again man

@  rfdegen : (03 June 2015 - 09:25 AM)

I called my grandfather with the news of the birth of our second daughter and he said "That's OK. Girls make good fishing partners, too". In addition, I taught them to golf, so we get out once or twice a year when they're home visiting. All good.

@  HossOnMoss : (02 June 2015 - 01:25 PM)

I agree. I've loved every minute of it with my first daughter and another one is fine by me. :D

@  rfdegen : (02 June 2015 - 08:26 AM)

Congratulations, Marcus! We raised two girls. Being constantly surrounded by females and raising girls isn't as bad as some make it out to be.

@  HossOnMoss : (01 June 2015 - 08:43 PM)

Thanks! This one makes 2 girls for us now. So, I'm well out numbered by the women in our household now.

@  Bigskydog : (01 June 2015 - 06:05 PM)

@  rfdegen : (11 May 2015 - 08:06 AM) Great win by Rickie at the Players. Now if he could only ditch the ugly rapper hats.

@  Quantum : (01 May 2015 - 05:10 AM) I am playing matrix ozik 130 6.0 stiff and wanted to switch to aldila tour 115 stiff. I am hoping it plays similar except lighter in weight?
@  FRAKETRAIN448 : (30 April 2015 - 08:50 AM) Great day of testing at the Ely Callaway Center - dialed in the new XR LD Heads with XPHLEXXX & FUJI Prototype shafts. Great numbers for first time out this year.
@  J13 : (29 April 2015 - 12:19 PM) All i know is whoever that guy is on the left talking to Mike is a stud. that's all i'm saying. :)

@  J13 : (28 April 2015 - 05:06 PM) Really happy for Mike. Seemed like a good guy and he now knows your the lucky charm. You might have a new job :)
@  HossOnMoss : (27 April 2015 - 04:25 PM) He kept the nerves in check pretty well all week, but we just had a couple of mental mistakes on the starting nine (back side) on sunday. Regardless of the scores (which I still can't comprehend), that course wasn't playing that easy last week. I fully expected a -2 cut line and never even considered -5 as possibility for the cut. (Insert cliche here) These guys are good!
@  Qwagmire : (26 April 2015 - 11:51 PM) :thumbsup: :4: so glad he could right the ship after a shaky start on round 4. Nerves? I would have been shaking like a dog shitting peach seeds
@  HossOnMoss : (26 April 2015 - 07:48 PM) Thanks guys! We had an awesome week. It's not often that a monday qualifier actually makes the cut on the PGA Tour. So, a T-36 finish is pretty good all things considered. Hopefully just the start of more great things to come for a really nice and talented guy.
@  Qwagmire : (25 April 2015 - 09:41 PM) Keep it going Hoss!
@  J13 : (24 April 2015 - 08:56 PM) Hoss keep reading those greens at the Zurich!!!!! Mike is playing great man!!!!

@  J13 : (14 April 2015 - 10:49 AM) Speith is a stud and seems like an overall great ambassador for the game. I'm a fan
@  HossOnMoss : (13 April 2015 - 09:26 AM) It was a great week to watch. Speith was as impressive as ever and it was in my opinion equally impressive to see how much Tiger was able to turn his game around in time for Augusta. Pretty remarkable feats by both players. Should be a great summer of golf ahead of us!
@  HossOnMoss : (12 April 2015 - 08:53 PM) That was an awesome display of golf this week by Speith. I don't know how anyone could not like watching that guy play golf.
@  BingHogan : (11 April 2015 - 11:34 PM) I think he'll continue to mow em' down at Augusta. Seems like his destiny. Anyone who goes to a Jesuit High School is OK in my book!

@  J13 : (01 April 2015 - 01:20 PM) Well he was spotted there yesterday so I have to think that was a round to see if the game is ready. Hope he played well.
@  TWshoot67 : (01 April 2015 - 10:26 AM) I agree I can't see him missing the Masters.....
@  HossOnMoss : (01 April 2015 - 10:26 AM) I'll be absolutely shocked if he doesn't play the Masters. I never had a doubt that he would return for Augusta. So, I'll be REALLY surprised if he doesn't play.
@  BingHogan : (01 April 2015 - 08:08 AM) He's gotta play next week. Can't believe he would pass on Augusta...

@  Laars : (04 February 2015 - 10:09 AM) Carroll was tricked into doing what he did. Pats don't call a time out, putting it all on Hawks either scoring or losing. Now you have no time, only 30 seconds. If Carroll does a running play first, and doesn't get in, he then MUST throw twice in order to win because he has no time left. Giving the advantage to NE. Go with the pass play first, then run twice. He picked the smarter plays, but in reality, he should give Lynch a shot, and if he doesn't get in, you lose. He looked at having 3 chances better then one. Belichick counted on Carroll doing that, going with 3 chances instead of one chance with Lynch, which on paper, 3 chances looks like the smart play. Carroll got out coached.
@  TWshoot67 : (03 February 2015 - 05:55 PM) J13 I feel pretty much the same. even two days later and I can't figure out why passing even entered anyones mind after the result of the previous play running the ball???????? :spank: :WTF: :nono: :crazy: :crazy:
@  J13 : (02 February 2015 - 07:57 PM) Carrolls call at the end makes me want to stick a nail gun against my temple and unload a clip. What a moron
@  Qwagmire : (02 February 2015 - 04:01 PM) Pats-Hawks, Texas-USC, more NCAA violations than any coach in history? Carroll has reaped what he sowed
@  HossOnMoss : (02 February 2015 - 09:51 AM) That was pretty hard to watch. Not a fan for either team, but it's painful to think that Carroll will be living with that choice for the rest of his life.

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.
