Hey oobers, Let's Talk!
I’ve been writing TheWedgeGuy.com (now part of oobgolf for about 4 months) for almost two years now, and to be honest, sometimes I find it difficult to pick a topic to discuss. In my experience, the best source of meaningful topics is from the readers themselves, so let’s change this up a little for 2009.
I want you all to tell me what’s on your mind and what you’d like me to write about. While in Orlando, Kevin and Andrew, my EIDOLON partner and I spent a day on the golf course then dinner one evening, and we talked about how to get you guys more involved, and here’s the idea we came up with.
FREE WEDGES!!!!!That’s right. All you need to do is Ask The Wedge Guy, with the quick and easy link at the bottom of each article. I’ll read through all these questions and select one each week for my Tuesday article. That reader who submitted the question that gets addressed will win a FREE EIDOLON V-SOLE wedge, custom built to your specifications.
One free wedge each and every week of 2009!
And, each month, we’ll draw another winner from all the questions submitted, so you have two chances to win, OK?
There’s nothing else you have to do except send in your questions or topics for TheWedgeGuy to sound off about. So get to writing guys, and let’s have some fun with this in 2009.
Thanks for reading.

You're not going to have enough time to read all of the emails you get...
Pick mine. Pick mine. I need a new 52* and I'm poor. lol
Kool, just sent my question! :)
Submitted mine and got a quick response. Thanks for the help Wedge Guy.
Sent...just had to get an idea in there before the flood of emails kill your inbox :D.
You're Poor ? , I'm So poor that I can't pay attention.
If Congress passes the bill the White House wants, we may all be poor soon. :(
I'm curious as to to why the Eidlon 60 wedge has less bounce than the 56?
Submitted my question and got a quick response. Thanks for the help I tried it and had some improvment!!

What does one do to get out of the "fluffy tuff grass around the greens in Florida. Coming from the lovely soft grass in Michigan, it is impossible to chip on with any accuracy. Help.

G'day Terry, have you got a New Zealand distributor, what can I say I'm a slack fella and don't want too import one.

I just want to know what a wedge with an A iron is the loft and what distances its good for thanks
Thanks for your response to my question Terry. Your suggestion of changing the loft on my gap wedge is working. I will be purchasing a full set of wedges later this year and you will be the first one I contact. Thanks again.
Terry; I had a seller on Ebay ask me a queation relative to the vintage of a certain model of Hogan Irons. I did not have an answer so I referred her to you at this web site for the correct information since you were associated with Hogan years ago. Was I correct in doing this or presumptive? JWHpurist
Not a problem. I'll help out if I can.
Why not dicuss the topic: Learn to play the clubs in your own inventory before you "Rush Out And Buy New Equipment" to correct swing flaws and incorrect technique! My point being, "A Decent, Well Schooled Player can pickup any club at anytime, develop a feel for it and properly hit a ball. The resulting differences in distance are minor and the self confidence developed through this procedure can be taken to the course and lower scores will result. This is why I enjoy working with the 20 different wedges in my inventory and developing skill with each. Some of these clubs are very old but still work quite well because they have been well maintained. I can take an old wedge out to my machine shop and restore it to legal playing condition and/or do a custom regrind and/or reweight in a rather short period of time. My Index mill is old style not CNC. How about that? JWHpurist
I am new to golf but shot a 92 on my first 18. This was from the red tees on a 6100 yd course. I am using the Adams a3 hybrid iron set. I also used the Adams 15 degree fairway hybrid and a Cleveland 56 degree wedge during the round. What are your thoughts on the Adams set and do you find any of the hybrids redundant? Since I am new I am looking to make my club selections easy. In other words I am looking to use fewer clubs than more. I hit my 7 iron about 150. Thanks for any tips.
If they are working, don't worry about it. But at your rate of improvement, you are sure to be "ready" for a professional clubfitting very soon. As for "redundancy", if you have two clubs that delivery about the same distance, then the answer is right there. If not, keep on enjoying the game and getting better!!!
