Oh dear,

 Using the precision accuracy of a laser, four perfectly calibrated texture lines are milled between each groove, exactly to the conforming roughness limit. This breakthrough surface roughness application optimises ball-to-face friction and maximises spin under The Rules of Golf.

It's a spin milled wedge.

Agreed, Chris and Paul, he certainly did not make correct contact.

The ball is struck with a descending blow when using a wedge, because with the club being shorter the swing is more upright. If the ground is firm then a ball struck correctly will always have some degree of compression, but if the ground is soft it will not.

Personally I try and take the shot with the leading edge striking the ball at about 5 o'clock and with a shallow divot. This gives the most backspin .
