Is anyone trying to sell or get rid of a 58 or 60 degree wedge?

Are you on FB? There are a ton of b/s/t groups on there. I’ve bought and sold a bunch of stuff.

Yes, I am. Any particular group I should look at?

Marketplace in itself should do

The marketplace is ok. But there are private groups that are much more trustworthy.

GOLF CLUB TRADERS (bunch of logos as its pic)

Club Junkies Marketplace (golf hole with water as OOC)

Those are the 2 main ones that I use. There is big Ohio one, but I feel like people on there aren’t as reliable. 

If you end up buying from someone, only pay them using PayPal Goods and Services. With that you are protected and can file a claim if they ghost you and don’t send the item. It happens from time to time. There is also a group with reviews for the GOLF CLUB TRADERS group, but no one really posts about who they had a good experience with.

Oh and don’t buy from someone who doesn’t have a paper with handwritten name and date on it. It’s supposed to be a rule of selling, but the admins miss some occasionally.

Went out my final time of the season....played 13 holes and played 2-3 balls trying different shots. Got some extra distance from my driver and found my irons (wasn’t getting my wrists into my shots).....felt like the old me. Loved it

Played today. Dreary and overcast but it was nice to play and not be sweating profusely. 

I’ll probably play 2 more times this fall yet and call it a year. This is my 2nd year of golf and I got about 15-17 rounds in this year (with having a baby during April so I didn’t play for about a month). 

Hopefully next year I can get about 20 rounds in and be consistent high 80s player.

Walked 9 at a local muni this afternoon. I hadn't swung a club in close to two weeks so I wasn't expecting much. I was +10 thru 5, with 1 par, but played the last 4 at even par (1 birdie). I was a little unlucky off the tee on 9 and ended up in a grove of trees after clipping a tree limb. 

Once I put the driver away all seemed to click just fine. A bad tee shot puts my head in a place that expects a bad second shot, and of course that comes true. Stay out of trouble off the tee and my second shot is usually fine.
