Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few questions that we are asked most often about the mid handicappers and the best wedges for their short game.
How Many Wedges Should the Average Golfer Carry?
Most golfers need to have three and ideally four wedges in their golf bag. If this means that you must take an extra fairway wood or a long iron out of your golf bag, it will very likely be worth it to have the extra wedge in the bag. The more wedges you have, the more situations you can attack and still get the desired results.
What Makes A Wedge Forgiving?
Wedges are most forgiving when they have a wide sole, a lower center of gravity, and some bounce. If you want to make sure you get a forgiving wedge that you should seriously consider something more of a cavity back style than a blade style.
What some golfers like to do is carry the cavity back style wedge in the pitching wedge and gap wedge and then use the blade in the higher lofted clubs like the sand wedge. When you do this, you may sacrifice some forgiveness on a full swing shot with a sand wedge, but around the green, you will gain quite a bit of performance.
Is Bounce on A Wedge Helpful or Hurtful?
Bounce is designed to be your friend. Bounce on the sole of the club will help you get through the turf and hit the golf ball up in the air. If you are a player who ends up digging the club into the ground without getting your shot in the air or blading your shots across a green, a wedge with more bounce could help you get more consistent results.
Obviously we have spent a lot of time reviewing wedges over the last few months. We hope we were able to help you find the a great wedge for the average golfer. Be
