What is the best bounce for a sand wedge?
The best bounce for your sand wedge depends on your swing type and course conditions. If you have a steep angle of attack resulting in deep divots, a higher bounce is recommended. If you are a sweeper resulting in shallow or no divot, low bounce is recommended. Vokey encourages golfers to go through a wedge fitting to ensure they get the proper bounce for their swing type.
Low bounce vs high bounce wedges?
Low bounce wedges are great for firm conditions and players that take very little divot. A low bounce wedge will tend to dig or cut into the turf. High bounce wedges are great for softer conditions and players that take a bigger divot. A high bounce wedge will tend to glide through the turf and resist digging.
What bounce should I have on my wedges?
Each wedge in your bag has a job to do, so there is no one-size-fits-all bounce. If you are a steeper player that takes bigger divots, we recommend at least one high bounce wedge. If you are a shallow player that takes little to no divot, we recommend having at least one low bounce wedge. The only way to get the best performance out of your wedge set is to be properly fit for your swing type.
What is a standard wedge bounce?
There is not a one-size-fits-all wedge bounce. Every player is different and course conditions change. The only way to get the best performance out of your wedge set is to be properly fit for your swing type.
