How to use wedge in a sentence?

  1. Jonathan Westin:

  4. Rory McIlroy:

    Only shooting one-under yesterday on the south course, I knew I needed to go out and shoot something at least in the mid 60s to just make the cut, let alone get back in the golf tournament, so it was nice to eagle the first hole we played and it's always a bonus when you can hole a wedge shot as well. All in all a good round of golf and at least have a shot going into the weekend.

  5. Dez Dickerson:

    When we talked in 2004, he shared with me that he had stopped wearing the high heeled boots he used to wear when I was in the band, he had these wedge platform sneakers that were custom made for him.
