changing from set GW to Vokey 52* help

Recommended Posts

My cavity back gap wedge that came with the set broke and I'm planning to replace it with a Vokey 52*.  I've tried out a friend's vokey 52* and my dad's cleveland 52*, and for some reason I just can't hit a "speciality" gap wedge well at all.  The club feels heavier, clumsiery, and more prone to hitting it fat.  Also, when I feel like I hit it good it only goes 110.  A normal gap wedge for me is 135.  It doesn't have that same piercing flight as my cavity back wedge has.  What's the deal?

Are you sure your old gap was 52? I've been thinking about dropping my set's GW for another cleveland wedge. The face is too hot for short shots I feel.

You will need to spend some time with it to get comfortable get used to the distance.  It will feel a bit heavy if shaft and club weight are different.  But, you will probably end up liking it more for it's stopping power on the green.

If your old gap wedge was less than a 52, you can have this one bent down a degree or too.  You can also play it back a half ball or so in your stance to lower the flight.
