What do you want most from your wedges? You know, when you’re close to the green - wedge in hand - what do you want to happen? Lots of spin, of course!
Picture the scene: It’s pouring with rain, you’re out on the course, wedge in hand, staring at the pin. Hopefully, you’re dressed for the occasion; wrapped up in your waterproofs and warm layers. But your poor old wedge won’t be.
You’ll hear commentators say “He’s used the bound well” or “The bounce is your friend”, but what is ‘bounce’ in a wedge? Well, ‘bounce’ means the angle of the leading edge. The bounce dictates how your wedge interacts with the turf, which can change massively with course conditions.
