My Dad decided to look online for the best lob wedge he could find after seeing my disappointment after playing at my latest tournament. I’m on the school golf team and my game isn’t bad, but it could be a lot better. My father, a long time golfer who actually played on the pro circuit for a couple of years when he was a young man, thought I needed a better lob wedge because hazards on the course tend to be my biggest problem. He’s right, of course, but I didn’t see how a new club could radically improve my game.\
I couldn’t have been more wrong. I am quickly learning that there is a huge difference between various clubs. Many players, like my friend Ruiz Morgan, think they lack the skills to master the game because they don’t realize they aren’t using the best clubs they can find. The wedge I was using was totally unsuited to my style of play as well as my swing, and my father knew that from his years of experience. He got me a lob wedge that really matches my height and my swing and I can only say that the improvement I’ve seen has been dramatic.
My coach can’t believe the dramatic improvement in my game either. He didn’t notice it was a new club and just thought I’d practiced harder. Actually, I didn’t. It’s the club. It’s just easier for me to manipulate my swing with it. Anyone who plays and thinks they’ve hit a wall needs to reassess their clubs immediately. You simply cannot underestimate how much a better club will help you. I would say I’ve probably taken at least five strokes off my game by using this new lob wedge. You can’t put a price on that kind of improvement with your golf game.
