My short game might improve if I upgrade my 56 and 60 degree wedges. But what is best for my game? And, can I get pre-owned?
I did a little research but could not find much info, only some crap about the spin doctor. Looks hokey with replaceable faces. Anyone ever try one the Spin Doctor? http://www.spindoctorgolf.com/inserts.html
So to contiune my researcht, I thought I would look for what wedges the pros play with. Use this link to find out what’s in the bag of your favorite pro. http://www.thegolfchannel.com/core.aspx?page=17200&select=12318
Fuzzy carries: Titleist Vokey 52° & 58°
Woods: Nike VR (56 and 60 degrees) – of course!
My standard wedge is part of a set (Ping G5) but my Sand and Lob wedges are some old worn out Ping Eye 2′s and need to be replaced. Thats what brought up the search. I like what Fuzzy carries: Titleist Vokey 52° & 58°
Measurement in degrees of the angle from the front edge of a club’s sole to the point that actually rests on the ground at address. The middle or rear of many soles is lower than the front edge. More bounce will keep the club from digging too deeply into turf or sand.The amount of bounce needed depends on conditions. If you play courses with soft, fluffy sand, you’ll need more bounce. If the courses you play typically have harder sand, you’ll need less bounce. Playing from fairway – less bounce. With my game, I need more bounce, because I am in the rough allot. I am looking at a 52° & 58° with about 10 degrees of bounce.
Dignitaries from the county, township and cities of Trenton and Middletown were visitors at the latest Monroe Council regular session. They all had high praises for Monroe as they pleaded for Monroe Council to reconsider the ST Rt 63 extension for economic development reasons. Speaking in favor of the extension were Butler County Commissioner Don Dixon, Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkins, Trenton Mayor Rhonda Freeze and Liberty Township Trustee Christine Matacic. Also in attendance were Butler County Commissioner Greg Jolevette, Middletown Mayor Larry Mulligan, council members from Trenton and other prominent area officials.
The plea to consider an amendment to the city master plan to include a ST RT 63 extension failed by a 5 to 2 vote by Monroe council. Dissenting votes were from Todd Hickman and Mayor Robert Routson.
Monroe’s relationship with area communities is becoming strained due to the latest two big issues:
1. Monroe VS SunCoke Lawsuit – Monroe is suing a company who wants to relocate in Middletown and provide needed jobs in Butler County. Most residents of Monroe don’t care, however there is a stong and vocal group who demanded the City of Monroe do something about the econogical impact of the proposed facility. In this one it is Monroe vs The State of Ohio, The County of Butler, At least 1 US Senator, The City of Middletown, 2 Fortune 500 Companies and even President Obamas effort to stimulate the economy.
2. The St Rt 63 Extension to Trenton and ultimately to Oxford. Here Monroe ads the city of Trenton to the list above.
Monroe officials say they are representing the interests of constituents, I think they are only listening to a vocal few. Worse is the fact that Monroe is such a bad neighbor, they refuse to listen to anyone other than themselves.
Fact is that Monroe residents will benefit from being a good neigbor. Monroe will benefit from jobs that are created through the SunCoke plant and the Ohio 63 extension. They are only hurting the silent majority. That’s ok, 4 of the 7 are up for reelection next fall.
