I'm looking to get a new 60° vokey wedge. I am unsure what type of grind to get looking at the d and k. I want the 12 or 14 bounce. But not sure what grind I need. Want the 60 for full shots and maybe short up and down shots. I dont always open the face up but try every so often. Any insight would be helpful.. I'm a high handicaper

D Grind: The player’s high bounce wedge, the new D Grind offers high measured bounce with the crescent shape of the M Grind for shot making versatility.

K Grind: The highest bounce wedge in the lineup, the K Grind is the ultimate bunker club and the most forgiving wedge in the lineup for all shots.

I have had a 54* k grind for about 9 months now and love it. Very forgiving around the greens. I do not use it in green side bunkers as I have a 58 for that.

The K is great for mucky conditions.  I have one and it is generally my "go to" club around the greens if there's little green to work with...

This just dawning on me.. is it worth having 2 wedges with the same grind?

Sure.  Just not the same loft.  :)

No would be 56 and a 60

That sounds like a good gap.  But make sure to "prove it" on the course.  I use 5 wedges, each with a 10 yard gap.  A pair of those wedges have numbers engraved on the sole that indicate they are 2 degrees apart.  The proof is in the shot.

45, 48, 54, 56, 60.  Believe it or not... each 10 yards apart.  I'd put my 64 back in there if it didn't mean I'd have 15 clubs...

I kinda hate Vokey wedges and think almost all of their non-Tour grinds suck.

Not trying to sound like a ass.. but what was the purpose of this response?

I'm suggesting you look at a wedge that's not a Titleist, which is all you seem to be considering.

I recommend that you get a wedge from another manufacturer.

So what do you like and why? I just got myself a couple of ping glide 2.0 stealth wedges. I have a 52 and 56. Both are the highest bounce offering. I’m coming from Vokeys and this far I have to say they’ve been great. They feel a bit softer than the vokeys and they look fantastic. I’ve found them to be really good out of the sand. Not great from short pitch range in the fairway, but that’s the Indian not the arrow. 

Also just to add that I heard they’re on sale right now.

Edel first and foremost.

And behind them… almost any other wedge besides Vokeys. PING Glide wedges (hey, the name is from LSW after all!) might be first in line. I think the Callaway wedges have a few good grinds.

I generally like high bounce with a thinner sole and a higher camber, with additional relief in the heel and toe.

    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
    • I think he’s making a huge assumption that something he feels makes him do something, will translate to anyone else. I think tips like these come from instructors who confuse the concept of what’s natural anatomy wise isn’t natural function wise if that makes sense.
    • Vantage Point, par. It's nearly a birdie, but I can only assume Zoe Saldana dies, so… needed more loose ends tied up. Actually, I'm not 100% certain of everyone's ties. Whose brother is who? What? Huh? Maybe I just didn't pay close enough attention.
