Kevin Hamluk, PGA
@HamlukPGA    @BlakeGrahamPGA I like TM (driver and putter) but tend to lean elsewhere for wedges...TM good but I prefer others in wedges

Blake Graham, PGA
@BlakeGrahamPGA    @HamlukPGA Kevin - how about when you can have all 14 clubs in your bag be from the best company there is? #TM2012 @TaylorMadeGolf

Kirk Oguri, PGA
@KIRKOGURI    @BlakeGrahamPGA @HamlukPGAKevin u play their wedges? ewww. New ones are an improvement. Will be testing them when they come out

Blake Graham, PGA
@BlakeGrahamPGA    @HamlukPGA I think the new wedges will change your opinion somewhat. What wedges are in your bag now?

Kevin Hamluk, PGA
@HamlukPGA    @BlakeGrahamPGA I have a few that I rotate in and out depending on courses - Cleveland and Vokey

Kirk Oguri, PGA
@KIRKOGURI    @BlakeGrahamPGA @HamlukPGAKevin and haven't played US TM irons in yrs. Don't like any of them to ever play em. And won't switch anytime soon

Blake Graham, PGA
@BlakeGrahamPGA    @KIRKOGURI Kirk - believe it or not...I liked the XFT wedges. NEw ones are way better tho.

Kirk Oguri, PGA
@KIRKOGURI    @BlakeGrahamPGA here's my thing: How can u come out with a wedge saying one grind fits all golfers? No way. I'll be grinding it big time

Blake Graham, PGA
@BlakeGrahamPGA    @KIRKOGURI totally agree with that. My wedges will look nothing like the retail version.....

Kirk Oguri, PGA
@KIRKOGURI      @HamlukPGA @BlakeGrahamPGA Fourteen Golf make the best conforming wedges available in the US

Kevin Hamluk, PGA
@HamlukPGA    @KIRKOGURI really good wedges...and really expensive too! But a great, heavy wedge!

Blake Graham, PGA
@BlakeGrahamPGA    @KIRKOGURI what irons are you playing? You didn't like the MB or MC iron?

Kirk Oguri, PGA
@KIRKOGURI      @BlakeGrahamPGA their sales were so poor in Jpn. That says a lot which means it didn't come close to other irons there.

@KIRKOGURI      @BlakeGrahamPGA I still play Jpn Burner forged. And so do many players out here. We've gotten a bunch of them for staff players

@KIRKOGURI      @BlakeGrahamPGA u will NOT get me playing an iron that has "MC" on it!!

@KIRKOGURI      @HamlukPGA they are expensive, because they are milled so well and faces are perfectly flat. Grooves milled also. Great quality

Blake Graham, PGA
@BlakeGrahamPGA    @KIRKOGURI gotcha....I played the MB most of they year and the switched to a set of MC's with no offset in September. I actually like them.

Kirk Oguri, PGA
@KIRKOGURI      @BlakeGrahamPGA not sayin they won't perform well. Just no chance to get my irons out of the bag. Has to be better

Dan Sposato, PGA
@DSpogolf    @KIRKOGURI you see the new 588 from Cleveland yet?

Kirk Oguri, PGA
@KIRKOGURI      @DSpogolf new 588? That's like saying if I've seen the new Taylormade bubble shafts ;)

@KIRKOGURI      @DSpogolf Same wedge just conforming grooves. But it's still a Cleveland wedge


Try this ...
