Groove Sharpeners: CHEAP vs EXPENSIVE

How long have you had your wedges? Ever tried groove sharpeners?

Chances are if you’ve been holding on to those old wedges as most of us do–they’re like security blankets. However, the wedge is the quickest deteriorating club in your bag, which means loss of spin, accuracy, and distance control.

Studies suggest you should be replacing your wedges every 75 rounds! That can get expensive… quickly.

In today’s episode of Golf Science we’re diving in on groove sharpening and whether or not it can breathe new life into your old wedges. We conducted a test with 15 different golfers – guaranteed one to match your game.

      Okay. How about get a microscope and show the grooves highly magnified pre and post work with the sharpeners. And measure the sharpness. And tell us what carbon steel the sharpeners are made of. And how the USGA qualifies their groove conforming standard.
      Seems like there was a bunch more info here to dig into.

      Just get a screwdriver in there . Not sure who’s genuinely worried unless you’re good enough to get your wedges tested in competition which probably means you get them for free anyway

      Like many golf products, these have value (actually, the $80 one is a joke, I bought something like that online for $10). I also have the $10 one but have not used it on my 2-year-old vokeys. I sell my wedges after 2 or 3 seasons & I’m afraid regrooving will hurt the value online. Also, I’ve read that sharpening too much will actually break down the walls of the grooves.

      I don’t waste money buying new wedges. Stores like 2nd swing have “like-new” wedges (& you can see they’re barely used) for at least 40% off the “new” price. Or look on eBay for new or like-new club bargains (I’ve found them).

      So bottom line, maybe I’ll try my $10 sharpener when my wedges look a bit worn. But absolutely tape up the sides; to me nothing looks worse than scratches on the heel & toe of the clubface. And only an idiot would buy clubs with these scratches because you don’t know how much sharpening the previous owner did.
