Re: Optimum Bounce on a lob wedge?
That's why I went for the middle and 7 degrees seems perfect.
I can open the clubface nearly fully and not skull a single shot.
and it's hard to hit a fat shot with it too.
I've been flubbing a lot of my shots with my Vokey 60* loft and 8*. Of course, I skull it when I overcompensate. However, when I do make a clean shot, it's awesome. I'm starting to think that it might have more to do with the actual lie than my swing (wishful thinking, eh?). My local course does not have very many tight lies. It's mostly fairly soft. Is that the problem? In other words, does my wedge lack enough bounce for me to use it as a versatile wedge because of the soft lies?
I looked up the bounces offered on the Vokey website. I have the 60.08 M, but now I'm having buyer's remorse because I think I should have selected the 60.11 K. Any advice? Thanks.
I don't know what the rest of you're set make-up looks like, but a lot of folks who have trouble with 60* lob wedges find happiness with a 58 instead. I put a good bit of mileage on a 58/12 lob and had good luck with that combo before switching to SCOR and giving up worrying about bounce. If you like Vokey's perhaps you could find a Titleist fitter to help you select a loft and grind that works for your swing? (IMHO you can't get a proper wedge fitting hitting off a mat so you'll need a fitter that works off grass and sand.)
