Bounce on 60 degree wedge?

Recommended Posts

I have a Cleveland 60 degree wedge with a 8 degree bounce. Cleveland calls that "low bounce". They have a "standard bounce" that is 12 degree bounce.

I researched some of the other brand name wedges & some of them have a standard bounce with only 8 degrees.

Is there a standard for bounce in a 60 degree wedge & what is the pro/cons of having a 12 degree over a 8 degree bounce?

Thanks!

Well everyones "standard" is going to be different. So no there is no standard between different brands. The pros of 12 over 8.. .12 will be easier to play out of the sand and maybe thick rough. Cons, it will be harder to play off of tight lies. I prefer the smallest amount of bounce possible for my 60 degree.. this is why I havent changed from the CG12 to the CG15.. i have 4 degrees in my CG12 and they do not offer it in the CG15.

In addition to mrt10x's comments, since 60* lofts are already harder to hit, extra bounce can make flop-style shots with them just that more difficult. You want to get the club face under the ball for clean contact and the harder that is to do, the more likely you are to forehead the ball (or such).

From your signature, it looks like you have a sand wedge, so you don't need the extra bounce to help it double as a sand wedge.
