安いSFっぽいイメージ

SM6からSM7にかけて,ロフトの寝たウェッジで重心を上げたのはいいものの,深くなっちゃったからスクエアなインパクトが難しくなった。なのでタングステンを入れてホーゼルとトウに重心を前に持ってきたんだそうです。おわり。

あ,あと,溝もちょっと変わって,ロフトの立ったやつ(46°-54°)は幅が狭くて深い溝=アイアンっぽくし,ロフトの寝たやつ(56°-62°)はその逆ですと。

スペックの変化

誰も気にしないと思いますが,僕がいままで使っていた54-08/Mという選択肢がなくなって,ロフト54度は10/Sか12/Dだけになりました。

ところでそのグラインド

Vokeyユーザーならご存知,MとかSとかのグラインドですが,その違いというか覚え方がようやく分かりました。D以外。

Fは「Full shot」

The F grind is an all-purpose grind that is particularly suited for full shots and shots hit with a square face. Ideal for players who prefer a traditional wedge sole. The F grind is the most played sand wedge on Tour including Justin Thomas, Ian Poulter and Charlie Hoffman.

Mは「Multi-purpose」

The M Grind, Voke’s favorite, is designed for players that like to rotate the club face open and closed to manufacture shots around the green. Ideal for players with a shallower, more sweeping swing type who play shots from a variety of clubface positions. Played by Charles Howell III, Patrick Cantlay and Cam Smith.

Sは「Square」

The S Grind features a full sole that has been narrowed by a trailing edge grind, giving it a faster feel through the turf. The S Grind is best for neutral to firm conditions and for players that like to control loft with their hands ahead or behind the ball. Played by Jordan Spieth, Adam Scott and Lanto Griffin.

SM7のときのSの説明の方がわかりやすいな。StrickerのSでもいいけど。

Design based on feedback from Steve Stricker, the S is best for square faced shots with a touch more versatility than the F Grind. Simple mechanics are best with this wedge.

Dがわかんない。「Dig」のDか?

The D grind blends versatility from a heel, toe, and trailing edge grind and forgiveness with its high measured bounce. The D Grind is ideal for players with a steeper angle of attack who play shots from a variety of clubface positions.

Kは「bunKer」用。しかし実際は「Tom Kite」から来た「K」でした。*1

The K Grind is the highest bounce wedge in the lineup, and is the ultimate bunker club. The K Grind is a wide, full sole wedge with enhanced camber to make it forgiving from a variety of sand and turf conditions. Played by Justin Thomas, Adam Scott and Webb Simpson.

Lは「Lowest bounce」

The L Grind is the lowest bounce grind option in the mix. The heel, toe, and trailing edge relief allow for maximum greenside versatility. The L Grind is perfect for firm conditions and designed for precise players. It is ideal for players that have complete control of impact looking for maximum shot-making versatility. Played by Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker, and JT Poston.

SM7のときのやつ

ヴォーキー

あ,あと。動画見て気づいたけど,「Vokey」は「ヴォーケイ」じゃなくて「ヴォーキー」。「Torrey Pines」が「トーリーパインズ」なのと同じ。
