The short game is arguably the most important aspect of one’s golf game, and as we know, it can be tricky sometimes. The Square Strike wedge is a club that aims to make it easier to hit cleaner short game shots, and you may be familiar with the club, as it has been seen on Golf Channel among other places.
I had the chance to try out the club which was created out here in the Chicago area, to test and see how it really helps your short game. Immediately, the first thing I noticed was the weight of the club, as it does not have the feathery touch of a traditional wedge.
This is a good thing, as it will help you balance the power of your chips and pitches better. In short, you’ll very rarely over hit your shots, and this is a great way to test your feel around the greens.
Another thing you’ll notice is its unique grip which is skinny in size and has a white line going all the way down the middle of it. This grip design can help with proper hand placement on chip shots, and as we know, it’s easy to overlook how you hold the grip.
Then, we come to the most important, and most intriguing part of the Square Strike wedge; the club head. The club head is shaped like a blocky square, hence the name “Square Strike”. The head is beautiful, and much thicker than traditional wedges and features a lovely green color on the back of the head.
The one part that stands out on the Square Strike’s head is its “machete rail” design on the bottom of it. What this does is, help you swing smoother on impact on chips. This slick feature helps you cut through the blades of grass, and help you hit the ball squarely almost every time.
Having hit some balls with the Square Strike, I must say that I really enjoy it and love how smooth it feels on impact. You don’t even have to hit the ball as hard on chips, as you can essentially use a putting stroke to hit a good shot.
Although the main focus of emphasis for the Square Strike is the short game, it also is a nice club to use for full swings as well. It’s slightly heavy weight makes it a little tougher, but it’s a still a smooth swinging club. However, it is still best used for chipping and pitching.
Overall, the Square Strike wedge is a great weapon of choice in your bag of swords. It’s a fun club to use, it’s uniquely different, and it helps make your golf better, even if it’s just a tiny bit.
Hitting chips and pitches are fun anyway, as they are personally my favorite shots in golf. The Square Strike makes hitting them even more fun.
Chipping contest anyone?
