Now that you have a much better understanding of the best golf wedges, it’s time to figure out which are the best for your short game. Here are a few commonly asked questions that may help you narrow down the club choices.
What Is The Best Degree Sand Wedge?
There is no degree that a sand wedge must be. You have to look at all of the wedges in your bag and make sure that there are no large gaps between clubs. If your next wedge down from your pitching wedge is the sand, then you may play with a 54 degree. If you have a gap wedge in the bag, then you may play with a 56 or even 58-degree wedge.
Do I Need To Use A Sand Wedge Out Of A Bunker?
A sand wedge is an excellent club for hitting bunker shots, but it is not the only club that will work. Suppose you have a lob wedge or even a pitching wedge that you trust to get you out of a bunker, then, by all means, you should use it. With a bunker that is very close to the green with not a lot of room to work with before the pin, you will probably want to use something with more loft than a sand wedge.
What Bounce Should I Get On A Sand Wedge?
If you plan to use your sand wedge out of the sand and out of the thicker rough, you will want to get something with mid to high bounce. The bounce will work to help get your shot out of the sand and make it easier for the club to glide through without getting stuck. Some golfers are afraid of a club with too much bounce, but the bounce is a positive thing that can help your game.
