SCOR WEDGE

May 05 2014

Let’s talk wedges. Are you still playing wedges that were designed 50 years ago? Does your wedge and your buddies wedge ‘look’ the same except for the “Brand”?

We are all aware of how the technology has changed in drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons. What about the wedges?

  • The wedge was initially designed to ‘get you out of the bunkers’. It was a simple design. They all had and still have a low concentration of weight in the sole, with a thin face in the upper portion. What about bounce?
  • ;How much do you need?
  • What should that number on the bottom of the club say?
  • How many wedges should you have in your bag?

Unfortunately, we as golfers allocate the bulk of our budget and efforts to the clubs that have the lowest contribution to lowering our scores.

I would like to introduce you to a company I discovered a couple of years ago while attending the annual PGA Show. SCOR4161. These are not gimmicky clubs, like those hawked by many other ‘lessor known’ companies out there. This is a company that builds top quality SCORing clubs. They produce every loft from 41* to 61*. That’s right, every loft - not every other loft - so you can replace all of your scoring clubs right down to the 9 iron and dial each one in without compromise.

Trust me when I tell you, these are some of the best wedges available, hands down.

The most common issue golfers have with wedges is distance control, particularly on those ‘touchy feely’ shots around the green. This is a result of the thin upper face portion of conventional wedges. Scor has addressed this issue and you can see and feel the difference in the noticeably thicker upper portion of the face. This has helped me dramatically with my distance control.

From the makers of Scor Wedges:

“We put our SCOR4161 52° Precision Scoring Club up against the "gap wedge" offering from the two top-selling brands of "wedges" in a battery of tests using ‘iron byron, the undisputed master of golf club testing.
We tested shots hit high and low on the face, as these are the most common misses for golfers of all skill levels... even the tour pros.
The results were astounding.
The distance deviation on these 'wedges' from misses less than one inch up and down the face averaged 43 to 50 feet! So those wedge shots that come up way short all too often? They really aren't your fault.
In contrast, the revolutionary design of the SCOR4161 Precision Scoring Club reduced that dispersion pattern by up to 73%, leaving you putts inside of 10 to 12 feet, rather than a bunker shot or worse.”

 

Your 6-iron might be great. The matching 9-iron and 'P-club' aren't.

The technology that is supposed to deliver a longer-hitting 6-iron does not give you the pinpoint distance control or the forgiveness you need for scoring range precision.

Want proof? In Iron Byron robotic testing of the top two selling iron models of 2013, the 'P-clubs' delivered distance dispersion patterns of up to 90 feet from misses as small as 5/8 of an inch

Hit It Closer. Score Better.

Proven on Iron Byron:

  • 73% more forgiving and accurate than conventional wedges.
  • 94% more forgiving and accurate than set match short irons.
Bounce:
  • he "wedge" category is stuck on this notion that you can "fit" bounce to turf conditions or your swing path. But in reality, those two things are constantly changing. That admittedly specialized wedge might be good sometime, but it is simply awful at others, and that is costing you strokes on full wedge shots and those delicate shots around the greens.

  • The innovative and renowned V-SOLE combines both a high- and low-bounce in each club to give you unmatched versatility and shotmaking control, whether you face a full shot or the most delicate pitch or chip. Hard pan to sand, fairway to rough, it never met a lie it didn't like.
