Currently carrying a couple of Vokey SM3 wedges (circa 2010-ish?) and the grooves are fairly worn.
Consious they'll also be illegal in a year or two whenever the backstop for the groove rule kicks in for amateurs.

Current setup below - 13 clubs, though 3W and 5I normally stay home.
Driver - 3W(15) - 2H(17) - 4I thru PW(47) - 52.08 - 58.12 - Putter

May to stick to recent versions of Vokey, but would appreciated other recommendations, especially any good deals out there.
Also, what is the current thinking on carrying 3 specialist wedges versus 2?

Cheers Smile

Hate to give the boring answer but you can't go wrong with Vokeys. If you like them and can afford them they are the wedges to go for.

Check in with your club Pro or local fitting centre to make sure you get the best combo of bounce and grind for you.

I only use two wedges. 52 and 58, both Mizuno T20.

Good thing about Mizuno is shaft upgrades cost nothing.

Get a close friend to cause a distraction and then quickly pull your pants out of your arse.

Hopefully no-one will notice your shaft upgrade either.

My shaft is so bent I can't see my balls properly unless I crane my neck so far it puts me off my stroke. It's probably due to how I've been gripping it.

Do you find using a glove changes how you hold your shaft?

A visit to any pro shop should sort you out. You've probably also worn your grooves without noticing it. Get the pros to take a look at them and see if they can re-grind them then and there for you.

I struggle with a glove so normally discard it. I think I grip too tightly as the tension mounts, especially if there are people watching.

Cheers, PJ. Sounds like sound advice, though it can be quite intimidating visiting a pro.

There's a good one near you - in Shoreditch from memory. Hard to find (it's in a back alley) but they're usually ready to accommodate most needs.

Rings a bell, wonder if they're still there.
