Steep approach angle - what clubs?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So my swing is steep, take big divots especially with wedges.  Other than changing the angle of attack, is there anything I can do or should get with my equipment to help this?

 

Thanks.

Change your attack angle. I don't think equipment will help you here.

I am a weekend golfer with a 2.1 so no interest in swing change.  I was thinking maybe something with my wedges so they dont dig as much.  Maybe more bounce, etc.

High bounce wedges fit to your swing.

You might benefit from a flatter lie angle.  Players commonly spec the wedges flatter to prevent digging, as it helps to keep the heel out of the turf.  It can also encourage you stand a little further from the ball which will flatten your swing plane.

As @cipher said, don't be afraid to use a generous amount of bounce. Only so much you can do with equipment.
