Played this beast yesterday – now I know why Phil is the master of the lob wedge. Try having to flop it over 10′ tall cactus all day. I guess that’s what happens when you miss 20′ wide fairways (unfortunately my long earned talent for punching out of Virginia woods did me zero help out here :)) What a great layout & scenery.
But honestly Fazio – we all don’t hit it like Phil you know, and I didn’t know Phoenix had such an abundance of dead elephants to build greens on :);
Even a wedge lesson from Stan Utley didn’t help me
I am the youngest with in a golfing family which has spanned three generations. My grandfather started the tradition in England (Bert Hodson-1931 Ryder Cup Team) and has since passed on his knowledge and love of the game. Although I did not follow in the steps of my father and grandfather on a professional golfing level, my love of the game and commitment to accurately fit equipment has only grown. Even as a kid I enjoyed re-gripping clubs which eventually led to refinishing wood heads, re-shafting, and now has culminated in more detailed custom club fitting, building, and repair.
