Scor Forges Ahead With New Wedges

The idea of extra wedges in a set came in the early 1990s when short-game pioneer Dave Pelz believed that there should be an extra lofted wedge beyond what had been the traditional 56-degree version that was the most lofted club in most people’s bags.
Tom Kite might have been the first to use a pitching wedge, sand wedge and lob wedge and he was certainly among the most effective.
The concept spread quickly and now virtually every professional player carries at least three wedges. And some carry four wedges, putting in a gap wedge between the pitching wedge and sand wedge.
But for most of us, the pitching wedge doesn’t match the rest of the wedges and Terry Koehler thinks that’s a problem.
Koehler, the founder of Scor Golf, has created a scoring system that extends from the lofted wedges into the pitching wedge and even the 9-iron.
