I watched the groove wear video the other day and was wondering a few things. First, they talk about # of rounds played and equate that to groove wear and second, it looks like you really need to replace them after just a few rounds watching the video.
I've seen a lot of people with major wear on their sole and grooves. I assume from hitting wedge after wedge with the dirt and/or sand still on the club, but I don't know exactly what people do to trash their club so much.
My SM4's have an unknown number of rounds on them (all by me, but ???). Maybe around 75ish The grooves are all straight, and I can see the swirl marks still on the faces. There is absolutely zero chrome browning (wear). If they still "look good" and aren't smashed, rusting, or what have you - then really how worn are those grooves?
It must depend on what conditions you play the clubs and practice with them, and less about the number of rounds played. Any opinions on that? Maybe Team Titleist and or Mr. Vokey can give us their opinion on this...
PS - I did order up a new SM7 D grind in 60* because I don't think my 58* is gapping out my short end quite enough and I'd like just a touch more loft for the stuff around the green.
Thanks Team Titleist!
