Don't you just love
golf? It's a great game and we all wish we could play a little more often and
score a little lower.
You'll agree that a
good short game can lower your score more than any other part of your game. 63%
of shots are in the sub-100 yard range and that's why many people have started
carrying a set of 3 wedges or 4 wedges. Renowned instructor and short game guru
Dave Pelz recommends four wedges as an ideal way to improve your short
game and lower your score.
Pelz preaches the 3 x 4 = 12 shots method. That is, learn 3
shots with each of your 4 wedges and that will give you 12 repeatable
shots for 12 different distances. The objective is to get your ball
within 8 feet of the hole. That gives you a high probability of
one putting. You end up giving yourself a chance of scoring birdies and
par. A strong short game has a tremendous impact on your overall score.
Which 4 wedges
to buy? Many golfers prefer to go with 50° , 54° , 58° and a 64° lob
wedge. Others prefer 52° , 56° , 60° and 64° . Some go for the 68° lob
wedge along with three other wedges to complete their set of 4 wedges.
Pick the lofts
that you feel most comfortable with. If you plan on hitting flop shots
ala Phil Mickelson, then make sure you add either the 64° or 68° super
high lob wedge.
prefer all their wedges to have the same length, others prefer to have a
0.5" difference from wedge to wedge.
The USGA made matters a bit more
complicated with it's new ruling on grooves. Many of the old favorites are now
out of favor because they don't conform to the new rules.
Our Acer XB golf wedges are USGA approved and present a classic teardrop shape, tapered hosel, very minimal offset, thin top line and narrow sole.
The four-way cambered sole and moderate bounce angles allow for maximum playability from a variety of situations you may encounter on the course. The versatility of the D-grind sole allows for the face to be opened when needed and is good from any lie to produce creative face angle positions for shots like bump and run and the flop around the green.
Perhaps the greatest attribute is that no other set of wedges are as complete and versatile as the Acer XB
wedges. There are as many as 8 different lofts to choose from providing you with
total short-game management.

The appearance is just as elegant as its performance.
When you hold the club, you can feel the precision and visualize the ball flying
high and landing soft next to the flag in your minds eye. Feel it, imagine it,
knowledgeable golfers tend to have a set of wedges instead of just the
traditional pitching and sand wedge. That's why we sell more sets of
wedges than single wedges.
