I do think that golf is one sport that spending more money can help....oversized clubs, bigger sweet spot, customized for your personal swing etc. You can science out alot of your own minor flaws.

The "Black Pearl" wedges are the Cleveland CG14, CG15 and CG16 models, and Cleveland has been known for making the best wedges in the business for many years. They also make the Black Pearl in the 588 Series, which is the touring pro version.

The CG14s will run you around $70-80 and the CG16s upwards of $90. You can find them at Edwin Watts, Golf USA, Dick's Sporting Goods. Avoid golf course pro shops where they'll charge you out the wazoo for these. The 588 Series will run you about $140 for the club.

You need to know which loft he wants- sand wedges are a personal preference and can be lofted anywhere between 54 and 58 degrees. Most off-the-shelf sand wedges are 55 or 56 degree lofts.

He wants the 588 with 52deg. loft. Are you saying I will need to have it ordered?

I like people who suck at golf who think paying a bunch of money for new clubs will help.

I bought a set of Taylormade Burner Irons to replace some old Ping Zings I was given and they have made a huge difference.

Kind of like people that buy expensive cameras thinking it will take a better picture?

Basically what Panthro said... I'm about a 10 handicap and I got new Burner 2.0 Irons last year as well. In addition to gaining about 15 yards per club, those irons hit the ball much, much higher than my previous set which allows me to land the ball on the green and have it stay even at distances of around 200 yards.

That's my driver and it is awesome

Yeah, I got one last summer and gained about 10 yards on my average drive. The ball just blasts off of it. I'd like to have the matching 3 wood. Hopefully Shuf will come thru for me. :)

Yep I added at least 10 might be 20. Glad I tested it.

Now if I could just figure out how to hit my 5 iron I would be dangerous.

I need a 200-215 hybrid. I haven't found one yet that I like....

Go try a Nickent. I play a 20 degree and wouldn't trade it for a club 3x as expensive.

Yeah, my new set of irons is only 4-AW and a SW I bought separately. I play with a fade (and sometimes slice) but I've been working on it. These irons are much easier to hit than my previous irons, but the 4 and 5 irons I still have to work hard at to keep from slicing.

I still think we need to have a huddle golf tourney. Somebody set that up.

CG 15 or 588 >>>>>>>>>>>>> CG14 or CG16. Spend the extra money and get a club that doesn't have cheap plastic in the cavity.
