Best Answer

Bounce is the angle of the sole to the ground. A lower bounce wedge will perform better on courses with tight lies, fairway shots and tight compacted sand. Typically a Low Bounce wedge will be in the 0-10° range.

Does a wedge replace a sand wedge?

There are primarily 3 types of wedges, Pitching, Sand and Lob. A Pitching wedge has about 46-48 degrees of loft, a Sand wedge has about 54-56 degrees of loft and a lob wedge has about 58- even 64 degrees. Depending on player preference they can have low or high bounce which can assist getting out of the sand and help when playing certain types of course, if you have a low bounce club on soggy turf you may go under the ball easier, not getting proper contact. There are also gap wedges which are designed to fit between the Pitching and Sand wedge, at about 50 or 52 degrees.

How do different degrees of bounce in a wedge work in varying conditions on the course?

Bounce is the angle from the leading edge of the club face across the bottom of the club. If you have 7 degrees of bounce, the bottom part (part that rests on the ground) of the club will angle down toward the ground at 7 degrees. This is designed to keep the leading edge of the club from digging into the ground or sand as clubface strikes the ball. If you play where there is soft, deep sand you generally want more bounce. If the ground is hard and the sand soft, you may be well advised to use a sand wedge with lots of bounce (7-10 degrees) and a wedge from the ground with little bounce. Hit em straight and seldom--

What is ideal degree of bounce for sand wedge?

It all depends, and without knowing your game I could not tell you the best for you, however I will share a few tips with you. One factor which is key, is the type of ground that your play on. If you play on a links course where the ground is hard and crusty a low bounce club is ideal as it will slide under the ball, if you used a high bounce club the club would bounce up too soon, and you could thin your shot. If you play on a course which is often soaked by rain, then a high bounce club is ideal, as a low bounce club would dig too easily causing a chunk. It also depends how much sand is in the bunkers you play. If you play on a course with little sand in the bunkers, a low bounce club will allow you to slide under the ball and get it up quickly, a high bounce club will hit the bottom of the bunker and you will most likely thin your shot. If there is a lot of sand in the bunkers, a high bounce club is ideal as a low bounce club would dig too easily and you could end up leaving your ball in the bunker. I have a 56 degree sand wedge with 10 degrees of bounce, and a 60 degree lob wedge with 4 degrees of bounce. I have this because I like to play flop shots and feel I can easily get under the ball to get elevation. The 60 degree with 4 degrees of bounce is not ideal from a fluffy lie in the rough because it will go straight under the ball, that is one of the reasons I have 10 degrees of bounce on my 56, so if I do come across that situation, I can hit a controlled shot with the 56 rather than take my chances with the 60.

Does bounce on a wedge matter to a 30 handicap golfer?

Irrespective of your handicap, it is very important to have the correct equipment for your game. You have to feel comfortable with what clubs you have in your hand, how they look and how they feel. If you play on a hard/ dry course you will want a low bounce club, this will allow you to slide under the ball and pop it up. Low bounce wedges also are good for those with a shallow swing arc. High bounce wedges are ideal if you play on a wet or very soft course, or have an aggressive swing path, which means you are a digger. High bounce clubs are better for playing out of the rough, and also bunkers. If you get the correct clubs for your game your handicap will drop, and once you get to a lower handicap you would want the correct clubs anyway.

In golf What is a wedge?

A wedge is a highly lofted golf iron. There are many types, pitching, sand, gap, approach and lob, however, wedge usually refers to a pitching wedge. They have numerous loft options ranging from 46-64 degrees and they are the only club with different bounce options. They are used to hit the ball relatively short distances, so 125 yards and in, and are frequently used as pitching and chipping clubs.

What loft for a lob wedge?

If you mean a lob wedge, which usually comes in 58-64 degrees you should get whichever one you feel most comfortable with. I would recommend a 60 degree as there is plenty of loft to get the ball in the air and stop quickly. With the introduction of v grooves the faces have become too slippery and 62 and 64 degree wedges have become obsolete.
