I would say that Steve Stricker is the best wedge player.  He comes into the ball very shallow with his wedges which IMO, is the way to really control spin which is imperative with shots 125 yards and in.  If you want best putter then I would have to go with YJS when he was in his prime.  He couldn't miss anything from 15 feet and in it seemed for those 5 years or so. 

Stricker has been a popular choice for sure. Who is YJS?

"Not Phil Mickelson...just because he's hit some memorable flop shots over the years doesn't make him great."     Best post of 2021!  

Not Phil Mickelson...just because he's hit some memorable flop shots over the years doesn't make him great.   Spieth's short game is still really good.  Rahm's is good.  DJ has improved his

Yeah, Patrick Reed is the guy that impresses me the most too...his feel within 100 yds is off the charts and seems like a wizard around the greens! I only started watching a lot of golf this year thou

Oh...Ok, Lol! Well, he’s been looking pretty good over the last few months, so maybe YJS and JS will start being referred to as the same person eventually.

I hate Reed but it’s either him or Spieth.

 

If you open it up to LPGA I would take Lydia Ko from 50-100 yards over anyone in the word right now

Yep.  My money is on Reed or spieth.  Reed is just a killer with putter when it counts. And jordan is like young Phil.  The more crap you put in front of him the closer He will hit it to the pin with a wedge.

Yeah, P. Reed has gotten by far the most votes and is my pick as well.

 

Spieth is starting to get a lot more mentions now with his play over the last couple of months. He is dynamite to watch with a wedge in his hands and is super crafty and creative for sure!

If anyone has watched the ET lately, Garrick Higgo is amazing wedge player.

 

 

Yeah, just finished watching Higgo’s 3rd ET win last night at the Canary Islands Championship, and he was extremely impressive in those last 2 wins!

 

Very poised and under control for his age, and looks like he as all the tools for be very good for sure!

Rahm, Reed and Spieth are three guys I like to watch who've got a lot a creativity and show little fear around the greens.

Yeah, P. Reed has been the #1 vote getter overall and is my pick too. Spieth is starting to gain some ground though with his performances over the last few months!

 

Rahm is a new one...he hasn’t gotten many mentions. He’s fun to watch for sure...find it very interesting that he has such a short backswing but still gets great distance, and he’s definitely crafty inside of 120 yds.

Well I now know 100% who DOESN’T have the best short-game on Tour…Chesson Hadley!! 😳

 

Just got done watching the Final Round of the Palmetto and my gosh Hadley was tough to watch. All the chips with the Hybrid that came up 10-15 ft short were absolutely excruciating…and then he pulled out the wedges and overshot the green every time. Really felt for the guy…that was rough.

 

On the flip side, Garrick Higgo’s short game is masterful for someone so young…he is really incredible to watch!
