What we say...
We know from your letters how many readers are taking advantage of the internet to buy golf clubs direct from the USA, where prices are usually around the same in dollars as they are here in pounds. Even with shipping costs and duty, this can up to a considerable saving. And it’s not just the big names that are making transatlantic journeys – one-offs like these wedges designed by legendary short-game guru Dave pelz can also be yours at the click of a mouse.
If you don’t know Mr Pelz from his best-selling books, you may have heard of him as Phil Mickelson wedge coach (which is a bit like being Michelangelo’s art teacher). The wedges have been made to his specifications, so they have super long wrap grips to help you choke down the shaft, neat head shapes, specially designed grooves for backspin and, most distinctive at all, hard wearing steel faces (to improved durability).
We found this gave the wedges a surprisingly hard feel at impact, which is something of an acquired taste. But the wedges worked very well in every other respect, being easy to use from bunkers, versatile from different situations around the green and offering consisten distance on full shots. If you want a wedge that noone else has in their bag, head for the website.
