Member Question:

I am getting ready to buy a set of the Sterling Irons, but not sure which wedges to play.

How would I decide between:

  1. My current Titleist Vokeys bought last year; reshaft these?
  2. buy the Sterling wedges as part of the set, to match other irons or 3) I like the look and technology of the Micro-Groove HM wedges

What factors should I consider?

In general, we can tell that the better the player, the more tendency there is for them to keep using their existing sand wedge and to do the single length irons down to the gap wedge.

With many of the players from say, 8 handicap on up, the trend is to go with the Sterling Irons SW.

Premier Member increased Golf Swing Speed to 130 Mph

"When I first started the swing speed training I was very skeptical it would do anything for me because I was already swinging at speeds close to 130 mph. But I wanted to get to the next level and be able to compete in Long Drive Events. So I gave it a try. I gained 13 mph in just one month of the basic swing speed training."
