I wanted to check this out and see what the results were. I have no idea if the science behind it is valid, I can only assume so. The results didn’t surprise me at all. The first thing I noticed is I have WAY TO MANY wedges in my bag. Currently, I have a total of six. Yep, six! This all goes back to learning more as you go along and obtain the knowledge of the game. Six is too many clubs as far as wedges go.
Currently, my “gaps” are at 46°, 50°, 52°, 54°, 60° and 64°. What Cleveland came up with was four wedges gapped at 46°, 50°, 54° and 58°. The good thing is I have 3 of the 4 clubs they recommend (as far as degree goes) the bad part is I LOVE my 52° and 60° clubs!! The 52° club is my Ping Tour W that I picked up at a yard sale and I rock that club. The 60° and the 64° I can understand, I haven’t had the 64° in the bag for a few weeks now and plan on trading it in or to someone else in need of one. The 60° is a great club and I’m getting better with it the more I play with it, but I wouldn’t be sad to not see it in the bag anymore.
Be sure to check out the link and see where your gaps are.
Also, you can follow Cleveland golf on Twitter @ClevelandGolf. That is where I found out about it. Love that Twitter!
