First time poster, 20+ year player with ~9 handicap here.. In short- my 60° SM5 M-08b is my favorite club, I make solid contact even on firm lies.. Manipulating the clubface open/close is a relative strength of mine thus the M grind fits me well as a neutral ba striker.. I also hit full/square shots very well with my 52-F- 12b, but my Cleveland rtx 3 56° 12b is another story. I've narrowed my options down to the sm7 56- M(8 bounce) or S grind, but I'm hesitant to get the M as the sand near me is often thicker than thin (south-central NJ). Based on this info, will I be alright with the M grind in thicker sand if I open clubface a little bit? Or, should I shoot for the S with a little more bounce and stick with the traditional advice I keep hearing? Thanks in advance, look forward to hearing your thoughts!
What bounce and grinds would you use on a 52 and 58, in a setup with a 47 degree PW? I'm looking into getting wedges that would allow me to use this set of lofts so I can drop a wedge from the bag. The 58 will basically be my lob and sand wedge, and my bunker club of choice most of the time. For somewhat longer sand shots the 52 will be used. This makes it hard to choose the right bounce and grind because both clubs will need to play well opened up, without raising the leading edge, but both are used from the sand too, for which higher bounce usually helps. The gap between 52 and 58 is large enough that I'm going to want to open the 52. The 58 not being a 62-64 will need to be opened too when playing flops. The popular strategy of one club having low bounce and the other high bounce I think may not work well here? Should I get 8-ish bounce with a C or M grind for both the 52 and 58? The technique I plan hope on using with the 58 out of sand is Luke Donald's, he shows it in this youtube video. Because effective bounce can be added using the trailing edge, I'm hoping I can have the bounce on the clubs relatively low to not sacrifice bare lie playability at least for one of the clubs. What bounce and grind (and therefore which brand+model of wedge, I guess) would you go for, given these lofts? Or, would you not go this route at all because the wedges have to be a compromise, given that the 58 is my lob as well as my sand wedge? Your thoughts will be much appreciated.
Hey guys, I purchased my first set of Vokey wedges about 2 months ago. I've got a 54 deg F grind(14 bounce) and a 58 deg K grind(11 bounce). Both have served me well. However, there is a noticeable problem when playing greenside flop shots within 20ft of the pin. The 58 degree wedge with it's face all the way open will not pop up the ball in "fluffy" grass since the grind an bounce won't let it. The 54 will do it, but the ball arc the club produces is shallow(turns into a bump and run)...even with a half swing. Being that I am a digger, and my wedges are "digger" friendly....what should I look for in something greater that 58 degree's for my style of play? For 60 degree wedges there are 4 different grinds....and if I go to 62, there is only one choice. OR should I just wait till the SM6 is available. I like having my 54, since it can blast me out of a bunker and the 58 is my friend in tighter lies.
