Hey guys,

I recently got a new SW with 54* of loft and 10* of bounce.

After reading a bit more on what a SW should be, it seems that it may not be a great combination.

Any thoughts?

My 54/10 is a great all around wedge. I have no idea if you are a picker or digger, play in soft conditions, or if you need a lot of bounce. Either way, 54/10 is a popular set-up with medium bounce.

Depends on your swing style as Tourspoon suggested.  I use a 54-14 and 58-12, but I am a bit of a digger on full shots.  I have no issue with this amount of bounce on pitches and chips.

Don't just worry about bounce. I played a 54* + 58* last season, but had trouble getting out of the sand with the 54* if the bunker had any lip.

I dumped these two wedges, and replaced them with a 56*.

My sand wedge is a 56 with 14 degrees of bounce. I went with the highest bounce model available on the brand of wedge i went with. The 56.14 combo seems ideal for a SW and the conditions we get here.

Who's to say what "enough" is......

I prefer a little more.  My SW is a 56-14 which l like for softer bunkers, but you're good enough that you likely don't have any trouble.  When you open it up, your effective bounce increases anyways.  What I really like the extra bounce for is those little 60 foot pitches because I have a bit of a tendency to dig.

    • The round I played yesterday was the first time when both my SG:D and SG:A were better than the 10 handicap level.  That's pretty good, especially since I know what I need to work on in terms of long game (and that has been improving a bit, too). 
    • Day 70 (6/13/21) - My wife filmed me taking swings with an 8-iron and Driver (w/o a ball) in the backyard. Positions seemed pretty good in the backswing, but in the downswing, I noticed that I have a tendency to let the club open up as I started down, thus requiring a correction at impact. Based on this information, I did several more swings focusing on keeping the clubface square to my line throughout the swing. Will work on ingraining this feeling again tomorrow. 
    • Every other weekend I play a modified version of match play with a friend of mine.  We play all 18.  Today I lost 8 to 6.  However...we also keep a cart score:  the winning/tying score, each hole, being the cart score for that hole.   Our previous low cart score had been +4.  This morning we managed a +3.  
    • Whoever chose this course (me) should be punished. And @georgep too. Apologies.
    • I recorded my swing in face on and down the line and have uploaded it here. Please critique and provide feedback. Appreciate your time on this! Thanks! 11 HCP. 8 Iron. Looking to optimize swing and learn to score in Golf.
