    SW and LW are cheap and i don't buy golf balls, but all my other equipment is top notch.  Maybe its the wrong strategy.  But today I got some puzzling results.  On some shots I get it 2 to 3 yards from the flag, and on other shots 5 to 8 yards.  Same formula used.  I can only guess sometimes the ball hits a down slope and takes off because the wedge doesn't have enough stopping power.

    I think it's a case of forgetting to put back spin on some shots when I rush and that explains the 5 to 8 yard misses.  Normally I get it 2 to 3 yards, unless the down slope gradient is severe.

    Pro Tour wedges have a spin value of 1.  Better than the starter ones that have 0.5, but nothing like the expensive ones.
