  1. BJB718 got it right. Many players use different lie angle adjustments with different clubs. A titleist rep once told me that most guys (at least titleist guys) are close to standard, and that you rarely see more than 2-3* of adjustment. According to him, Els is 1* upright, and he's like 6'5".
  2. As far as brands go, my favs have always been clevelands and vokey wedges. Pick some out that look good, fit your eye, and heft well. Wedges are all about trust. Finding the perfect loft configuration is a lot of times trial and error. I would, however, strongly suggest getting a gap wedge (something like a 52* or 50*). They are great to chip with and are easier to hit than a half-pitching wedge. This, however, also depends on the rest of your set makeup. Do the best you can to find the right combination of hybrids and fairway woods and wedges. You may need to make room for one or the other. As for bounce profiles, what type of conditions do you play in? Softer conditions will require more bounce to prevent digging, while hard conditions will require less bounce to reduce skulling. Also take into consideration your miss. Do you tend to hit it fat or thin? If you have a steep angle to attack into the ball, consider wedges with more bounce. Here is what I suggest to you. Get a gap wedge (something like 52* with maybe 8-10* of bounce, to be used with full swings from the fairway as well as bump-and-runs). And get a sand wedge, with 56-58* of loft and maybe 10-12* of bounce, for everything else (sand shots, pitches, and delicate chips). I personally carry a 54 and a 60, though some people carry a 52, a 56, and a 60. Go experiment. Don't be surprised if you decide to start over and try a new combo. And honestly, practice. When you've got something like a 20 hdcp, just practicing from 100 yards in WILL lower your scores. Go knock some balls around on the practice green, develop some touch, and you'll be breaking 85 in no time.
  3. I personally use the 1500 tournament edition, but has anyone used those callaway rangefinders yet? Those look pretty sleek.

    New Wedges

    Some tour pros like to play their shorter irons (like 8 thru P) 1 or 2 degrees flatter than their longer clubs, because they like to get a little more knee flex goin with the touchy shots. All of my irons are 1* upright, but my 54* and my 60* are both standard. In my own experience, you don't want to mess with the lie angles of your wedges, because they get real finicky off of tight lies, esp. when you want to lay the face wide open. Look at it from a technical standpoint. When you make a relatively fast swing (maybe a 5-iron), the shaft will be flexing downwards towards the ball at impact. This is why, at address, the toe should be ever so slightly up in the air, because it impact, that ground-club angle will change to flush. Now, your CG12 swings are not going to be nearly as fast. This means less downward-flexing-shaft action at impact. Which means the ground-club angle at address should be pretty close to flush. Bend your CG12s back to standard and see what happens. :)
  5. Between an FT5 tour N and an FT5 tour D..... Yea, the difference is there. Not severe, but totally noticeable. Your shots will definitely lean a bit more to the left and you'll have to work harder to get that fade goin'. It all depends on what you want out of your driver. What sort of configuration do you got with your superquad? If it's on some sort of draw setting, and you like it, give the FT5 D a try. The FT5 Tour D will not cure a slice. It's possible to get a fade going, but I found it to be really, Reeeaaaally hard with the stock shaft.
