So hi guys.. I'm a 9 handicapper and I am looking forward to buying some new vokey wedges and leave my crappy stock sand wedge.
I want to buy a 60 degree vokey wedge and a 54 degree plus my 48 pitching wedge i have on my iron set.
My set is 4-PW, Driver, 3 wood and a 4 hybrid plus putter.
I want to buy a Titalist SM4 or a Clevedon, Which one is better? Simillar price, looks im not sure.
And now my most confusing question, what bounce?
I do understand how bounce works But I cant seem to know which one is correct for me.
I live in New zealand so the weather is hot dry hard fairway no grass in the summer, and super wet soft rainy damp -fat shots- in the winter..
My homecourse has fluffy sand mostly but some bunkers are pretty empty.
My swing style is when i chip (ball back in stance, no wrist just putter) I sweep the ball. Some problems with my chips is that i sometimes hit it thin or top it.
BUT when i do a pitch shot with my sand or pitching wedge, i seem to create around dollar size divots.< Im not too sure about my divots. Sometimes i have huge divots and i hit it well and sometimes i have no or dollar size divots that are similar.
I Also have a tendency to create big divots in greenside bunkers. ANd dig the club into the sand but i think thats more technique than bounce on my stock wedge.
I usually hit fat more than thin but maybe thats because its really wet ATM.
So please hhelp, needa find the right bounce for me.
I go to alot of tournaments etc school competitions so i visit a variety of courses which are harder. Better fairways but thinner bunkers.
Also my distances for my pitching wedge is about 110 yards (100metres) and 9 Iron : 135 yards (125 metres) Not the llongest hitter but not the shortest. I am gaiining some more distance though.
