Acer XB Black - Set of 4 wedges

Don’t you just love golf? It’s a great game and we all wish we could play a little more often and score a little lower. Dave Pelzpreaches the 3 x 4 = 12 shots method. That is, learn 3 shots with each of your 4 wedges and that will give you 12 repeatable shots for 12 different distances. The objective is to get your ball within 8 feet of the hole. That gives you a high probability of one putting. You end up giving yourself a chance of scoring birdies and par. A strong short game has a tremendous impact on your overall score. The Acer XB Black wedges are available in lofts of 52º, 56º, 60º and 64º. Our Acer XB golf wedges are USGA approved and present a classic teardrop shape, tapered hosel, very minimal offset, thin top line and narrow sole. The four-way cambered sole and moderate bounce angles allow for maximum playability from a variety of situations you may encounter on the course. The versatility of the D-grind sole allows for the face to be opened when needed and is good from any lie to produce creative face angle positions for shots like “bump and run” and “the flop” around the green. The appearance is just as elegant as its performance. When you hold the club, you can feel the precision and visualize the ball flying high and landing soft next to the flag in your minds eye. Feel it, imagine it, execute it. For more [Read More …]

Review of Golf Wedges

Most people when starting out, go to a golf store or department store and buy a set of golf clubs. Such sets usually have a pitching wedge and that’s it. Later on, people add a sand wedge and that’s about it. Over the years as their game improves, they start understanding the value of the short game. Some of them read a good book like Dave Pelz’s Short Game Bible and really start appreciating the value of the short game. After all, 63% of golf shots are within 100 yards of the green and that is where you need wedges. An ideal golf set would have four wedges, a pitching wedge, a gap wedge, sand wedge and a lob wedge. Dave Pelz is a strong proponent of the 4×3 method. Under the 4 x 3 method, you use a set of four wedges at three different power levels, 7:30, 9:00. and 10:30 to give you three precise shots, thus 4 x 3 = 12 shots. You write these shots on a tape and stick it to each club. Next time you are within 100 yards, you check your yardage and see which club and which shot gives you the best chance of getting close to the pin. The next thing is to figure out which golf wedges to buy. You would like to read a review of golf wedges and compare one set of wedges to another but there aren’t that many golf wedges reviews. So we decided to do [Read More …]
