TBH, I laugh at the guys that come to the course dressed like they're Rickie Fowler but play as badly as I do. Dude, save the money you're dumping on those skinny white pants, white spikes, bright orange shirts and belts and hit another bucket at the range. Or pay for some lessons.

Also, I think Pushrod was referencing people who dressed like Payne Stewart.

I'm not sure I'm comfortable enough with myself to rock Daly's line of pants. Not surprisingly though, if I played well enough to not care, I'd happily rock the flat cap, long wool socks and knickerbockers.

Well to be fair this was more what I meant with regard to Daly :

I saw their 72* wedge someone posted on Reddit that they'd bought as a joke for a friend but ended up loving. They're on my radar for a shits and giggles "why not give it a shot..." (though I'd probably go with the 66* and not the 72*).

Just holding off on buying any new gear till my bike sells. Then it's game on.

What would a distance be on a 72° wedge? Like 50y?

I’ll just take a short swing with a 56° and call it good.

I added the 66* to my set and get about 70yrds with a full swing. It's such a steep loft that I pretty much only use the 66* when I'm bunkered up against the dirt wall.

I just use my driver everywhere. I can only hit as far as a 7 iron anyway. I'm going to try putting with it next.

Welcome to my world!

For me, the biggest difference in which iron I choose is how much loft I need on the shot. Almost everything goes about the same distance it seems.
