I've been meaning to get some new wedges. I'd say short game is a relative strength for me. A long time ago, I read the Stan Utley book, and tried his technique. Whether it was his ineptitude at articulating his method or my own lack at understanding it, it didn't work. I had been doing 'bump and run' type shots, and doing all kinds of funky things to get the ball to do what I wanted. Now, I've revisited his method, seem to have a better understanding of it, and find it works great. (So I guess it was ME)
I was a bit intrigued by Edel's wedge fitting system/philosophy. I'm a believer in more bounce now. Case in point: I have a 60* with 6* of bounce, and a 54* with 12*. I like the 54* better now, get more consistent contact, can control the traj better (even get it high like a flop, but with consistency and without having to overly open the face). I'd like to play as much bounce as possible, but am still in the process of grooving my technique. So do I get fit for my current swing, knowing it may change, and also have the potential drawback of not getting a wedge with maximum bounce for me; or get a wedge on the higher end of the bounce spectrum (digger type) and learn to use that? I am totally willing/able to tailor my swing to fit the club because in this case, I don't think i'll need to change any fundamentals, and more bounce is definitely better and worth it. Any thoughts? Thnx.
