Does Anybody Ever Wonder Why Callaway Tour Pros More Often then Not put Titleist Vokey Wedges In Their Bag? Let Me Know Your Thoughts, I've Always Wondered Why? They Seem To Have It Mixed Lower Lofted Titleist Higher Lofted Callaway
When I first started playing callaway irons I hated the wedges that were out at the time. Carried vokey wedges for the longest time till the md series came out and I began changing each wedge slowly. For the pros the wedge is their money maker , you can be the best putter in the world but if you are not getting it close your putting to much pressure on your putter.
Have played forever with Vogel wedges, especially the gap wedge at 52 degrees; also, had a 60 degree Vokey which I liked. When the MD PM 56-13 came out, I replaced my Cleveland sand wedge. After playing with that for a while, decided to replace the 60 degree Vokey with the MD PM 60. Also, replaced my original 52 Vokey with the MD 3 in 52 degree. Have been very happy with all three!
I put MD3 in my back last sping but I'm still hanging onto my set of Vokeys.
I didnt really notice the Callaway staffers playing Vokeys. I know Vokeys are probably the most popular on tour overall though. I like my MD3's a bunch. New forged coming soon for me i hope.
I have played Ping and Vokey but my newest wedge is a 54*MD3 with a W grind. It is a great wedge out of greenside bunkers.. I use it for shots from 65 yards in. Use for 90% of green side chipping. My 58* is a Ping W Tour that still has good grooves. I only use it for short flagstick bunker play or when I have short sided myself to a down hill pin position. When I do replace it I will either go to another MD3 or the PM wedge.
@FredW4c14 Purchased MD PM Grind wedges 18 months ago and have been extremely happy with them. Best wedges I have ever owned. Been playing 54 years. The U grind that they come with is really easy to use both out of the sand (use the 60-10 degrees of bounce for most bunker shots and within few yards of green) and around the green.
