On occasion the USGA asks for comments from equipment manufacturers on certain topics. Their intention is to “protect golf’s best traditions, to prevent an over-reliance on technological advances rather than skill, and to ensure that skill remains the dominant element of success throughout the game.” This is a very noble goal, but it could potentially conflict with equipment advances or inhibit technological growth.
In recent years the USGA and the R&A has conducted research, which in some cases has required changes to the equipment rules. Examples of which are moment of inertia, grooves and most recently club adjustability. One such topic in the exploratory stages is the impact of high-lofted wedges (for example 60° or higher).
I have already expressed my honest assessment and opinion to the USGA. Now it is your turn to sound off. Let’s hear from you whether high-lofted wedges (only 60° or higher) have made a positive or negative impact on your, possibly your customer’s or fellow playing partner’s game.
