@HankDHaney   Doesn't change loft but they will go further RT @antwan_tass: what would adding an inch and bending my 56 and 58 wedges 2*up do to the loft?

@HankDHaney   No but it feels softer RT @KJBirdieputt: @HankDHaney does a lower compression ball do that much for you when its cold?

@HankDHaney   Standard length stiff shaft RT @Scottyh28: I'm 5'8" Whats the ideal length driver I should use and type of shaft. My swing speed is 100

@HankDHaney   I prefer more bounce than less RT @Rocket_2: what is the best bounce to get for a lob wedge - 4 or 7 degs?

@HankDHaney   I think it is better RT @ryanlevene:is it better to use a heavier putter on slower greens or is that myth?

@HankDHaney   Gone, very small difference in performance but big difference in comfort RT @raydas83: r spikes gone for good and does it make a difference?
