I bought the new Phil Mickelson DVD set a few weeks ago and there is a short chapter on recomended wedges. Phil says it make little difference if the bounce of a 60 degrees wedge is 6 to 9 degrees, but he prefers a wider sole as the wider sole prevents digging in.
This chapter isn't clarifying much, same with the whole DVD ...... it is all a bit talk on the surface, not really into the deep, still I like his approach to the short game.
I would say that my Bob Vokeys have quite narrow soles, but what brands have wider soles and what would be the downside of wider sole in a 60 degree wedge.
Personally I think/feel that it is more difficult with a wider sole to open the face without increasing the risk of blading the ball.
Please advise ...... !
