2008 Wedge Buyer's Guide

If the golf bag were to have a go to problem solver, hands down, the wedge would be the top pick. Designed to be playable from literally anywhere on the course, the right wedge can be a real lifesaver.

Whether it’s a pitching, sand, gap or lob wedge, each can be used from a perfect lie in the fairway or a buried lie in the bunker. In fact, there’s a reason why the distance from within 100 yards is called the scoring zone. It’s the “make or break” area, where a great wedge shot can redeem a bad drive or poor approach to the green. Any miscue from this zone is considered an unforced error that should have been avoided (especially from the fairway).

Choosing the right wedges can be the difference between one or more strokes on any given hole!

Wedge Secrets

Wear Marks Revealed

Wedge SecretsRecently, one of my students came to me with a curious question. “Doc,” he said, “why do I hit it off the toe with my wedges, but not with other clubs?” We were on the practice tee, so I had him take out his wedge (pictured) and show it to me. He was right. He’d been hitting it off the toe so much that the clubface had started to wear down.
