    Fashionable clubs ?

    A kind of follow on from the 40 yard in topic....

    Looking at WITB with so many members sig I do wonder if many have gone for fashion over function ??

    I read guys with 60 degree wedges with whatever bounce or 50/56/50 wedges again with whatever bounce or grind etc and then I look and see they have a 22 handicap or a 19 handicap

    Now I'm not saying they shouldn't have them in the bag but last Friday I played with one of our seniors who plays of 7 and his chipping round the greens was absolutely lethal, same club every time, one of those old fashioned jigger type clubs, I have a hunch than many higher handicap players would be far better using one of these than the latest fancy Dan superfandago spinning wedge, tell me otherwise ??

    I could chip everywhere with a 8 iron .. but sometimes you just want to learn to chip properly and improve using the tools of your heros

    I have a set of beat up old clubs, but if I had a nice set of clubs i'd like to show them off regardless of the quality of my play.

    For example I have a handmade snooker cue, but i can barely make a break above 30. Despite the skill the cue is lovely

    You can be a funny old coffin dodger at times SpankyHanky, but no, what I'm saying is, some may be fashion over function, not quite the same.

    *EDIT Actually no what I'm saying is, perhaps some are using clubs that don't suit their game.

    Re: Fashionable clubs ?

    So are you saying that people should not use the wedges they have bought and instead use a chipper ? Or is a jigger something else ?

    Does it have enough loft to allow you to get the ball up quickly when faced with say a bunker in between you and the green ?

    with lofts getting ever stronger there is definitely a need for more wedges . although for 50 yards and in i pretty much always use my 52 degree. with a 56 for the sand

    I carry 4 wedges and they all have different uses/yardages. I can use everyone to good use and would be lost without them, not sure I could use a chipper TBH I think they are more suited to players who can't chip very good
