The players who best control distance and spin on their wedge shots do well every week on tour, but it's an especially important skill when the conditions are like those at Augusta National during the first round.
Distance measuring devices have become standard issue equipment for average golfers, state amateur events and even R&A and USGA competitions. Now, it seems the US PGA Tour might be ready to join the trend.
At Bay Hill during the Arnold Palmer Invitational, we noticed a couple of interesting stampings on a pair of Cobra wedges. Unlike the names and nicknames that tend to be marked on these clubs, these clubs appeared to be more of an endorsement for car services as one wedge was marked “Lyft” and the other “Uber”.
