When chipping or pitching in the rough, fairway or fringe, does bounce matter?
I have a Ping Tour 58-08 that I used to use for all chips and it was wonderful. The problem was that on full swings I hit it almost as far as my 54-15. So I replaced it with a Vokey 60-04. Well now my distance gaps are much better but my short game sucks. I can't chip worth anything with the Vokey, pitch, chip, flop, whatever. I don't seem to have the same touch. If anything I would say the feel is very harsh. I don't know if it's the bounce, shaft, head or loft.
I tend to hit alot of flop shots so I'm inclined to think I need more bounce. Should I just have my Ping bent to 60 since I chip so well with it? Perhaps it's a good excuse to pick up the new Eye2 LW 60-13.
I know that many of you all have Vokeys. Does anyone else find them harsh and lacking in feel or touch?
