Greetings from Matt Saturday, 26 May 2018



Last year, one of the specialist wedge manufacturers ran tests to measure the impact of groove wear on your stopping power with your wedges.

A wedge that had been used for 125 rounds, using a wedge robot, created about 6,500 rpm of spin and had about 24 feet of roll-out. A 75-round wedge created 7,700 rpm of spin and had about 18 feet of roll-out. Finally, a new wedge created 8,500 rpm of spin and had only 12 feet of roll-out.

I'm not suggesting you all go and buy new wedges, but I am wondering how many of you clean your wedge grooves before every shot? If those dramatic differences happen with some wear and tear, how much spin and control are you losing because of poor maintenance of your equipment?

If you are playing with old wedges, then it might be time to have a short-game assessment to check technique and equipment. Contact us.


 
 
 
How do you allow the golfer to hit an Iron with longer shafts and stronger lofts, with consistency,
accuracy, and green-stopping trajectory?

 
 
 You make them lighter, with lighter shafts,
so that the golfer can generate faster speed
but still maintain control.

You make the soles slightly wider,
so that the CoG can be even deeper,
increasing the launch angle off the face.
   

Callaway, the number 1 Iron brand in golf, have a full range of models to complement the Rogue family.
Innovation committed to improving your experience on the course. So let’s match the right innovation,
with the perfect fitting, to your golf swing. How much performance could we unlock?

 
 

 
What if I told you that in many cases, fat or thin contact, or a swing-path-club-face-relationship
creating a fade or slice, can be traced to poor posture with incorrect bend and tilt at address?

 

Kellie Stenzel, in a Golf.com instruction video, aimed at golfers with an inclination to hit fat iron shots,
goes straight to your posture and upper body bend at setup, as a major cause of this problem.
Watch the video now with a good tip for an in-round checkup you can continually make.
 

Stenzel has a good tip in her video, but the question is, if you were asked to pull a Driver, and then a hybrid,
and then a #7 iron out of your bag and set up correctly each time; would you have the knowledge of the
key check points to a good setup?
Not sure?

 

Here's to great golf!
Matt
