|Gap Wedge V Tree, who wins?|
Handicap : 14.2
Posted : Sun 1st Jul 2012 21:44
I was playing in the quarter final of our Priors matchplay singles today.
Hit an average second shot to the par five third hole. The ball went through some small trees and I never gave it a thought. Walked upto the trees only to find my ball about six inches away from the tree stump (only about 9 inches in diameter). My opponent had put his third shot near the green so I decided I had to go for the green, about 90 yards away.
I was concious that I might smash my hands against the tree stump when playing my shot.
Took a swing and made good contact with the ball, even kept my hands away from the tree.
When I looked at my gap wedge I noticed the shaft now had a bend in it that wasn't there before I took the shot!!!!
I've had these wedges about three years so now might be a good time for me to replace both my gap and lob wedges.

If its a trusty weapon get it re-shafted unless the head is damaged or its a cheap and cheerful club.
my wedges cost me £75 each and I love them so I would re-shaft mine

Thanks for the replies.
Being a Yorkshire man I did think of the bend it back straight idea....
Problem was it wouldn't go back straight, no matter what I did!
Was quoted £35 for a new shaft but I've had the club for about three years now and the grooves are not the best.
Decided it was an omen and that I should invest in a new gap wedge.
Tried a few on the range and purchased the Mizuno MP R-12 in both Gap Wedge and Lob Wedge (well you might as well have a matching set!).

I got the MP-R12 fitted in 52* and 56* at the Belfry Russ. Great clubs, you'll enjoy them

I purchased the 52* and 60* clubs.
Really like them, but not had much chance to use them yet!
