Yeah, this went just about as I expected it to go, which is why I typically avoid the public forums... It is filled mostly with sycophantic WGT apologists and people without the mental nuance to discern drizzle from a hurricane, simply because both make you wet.
To the clown (EDITED) accusing me of being a fake, I am probably one of the only people on here who has met multiple other players in person. My picture is recent and I didn't become a legend in 18 months, it more like 6. I am a also a 6' tall female who once played to single digit handicap and I hit it out there with most guys. I am sorry you are at level 104 and are still a Master, but your fear of intelligent women won't help you there.
To the rest of the people who replied with idiotic comments that completely missed my point, please take note:
1 - YES, I know any club can be hit anywhere.
2 - YES, I know Phil once flopped a wedge on a green under extenuating circumstances. Rickie Fowler did it recently as well.
3 - The above shots were in the spirit of the game and done from necessity. They weren't hit for any other reason. They are also clear exceptions to the rule.
4 - The full wedge on greens in WGT is abused. It isn't even debatable. Who in golf would elect to pitch or attempt to flop a ball from 80 feet away on a green with a clear run to the hole and no severe breaks? And if they did, it certainly wouldn't be easy. Heck, most golfers wouldn't do it from a fairway! It is absurd and if you can't comprehend or accept the ludicrousness of the shot, then may God have mercy on your brain. It clearly violates the spirit of the game and the shot itself.
5 - It is used because it is easier to judge longer distances with a wedge than it is with a putter, especially on slick greens with break, end of story. And because of that, the integrity of the game is violated, as a putt would be the play in golf. When you intentionally violate the integrity of the game, that is a form of cheating.
WGT could care less about anything but money, so I know nothing will be done. They can't even fix the missing pins on mobile games, as they are too worried about adding new ball effects and other ways to take your money. I know it won't change, but it had to be addressed.
What made me post this was a guy who hit a wedge on a green from about 20 feet and holed on the first quick check release. I am not even sure what shot was used, but it was a wedge. It was a left to right, side hill putt, with maybe 2 feet of break. Very hard to make the putt, but he knew how to hit that exact distance with whatever wedge shot he perfected, and he nailed it. I couldn't believe what I saw. It was a situation where you'd never ever see anything but a putter considered. But, he played the odds. If that is what this game is about to come to, where holing wedges on greens is easier than putting, then I think it is safe to say there is a problem looming.
