Buying a Wedge – A Complete
These days it seems that most golfers tend to carry
at least three wedges in their bags. Some of the pro’s tend to carry as many as
four wedges to tackle any of the more difficult shots and cope with any
situation on the fairway, in a bunker or even on the green. Wedges have become
invaluable to golfers on the course.
So What Wedges Can You Get?
How Do You Choose A Wedge
Then?When choosing a wedge it is always best to choose one where
the shaft matches the shafts or your other clubs in your bag. This way you won’t
have to keep adjusting your swings when you pick up a different club. Just
remember though that most wedges come with steel shafts, this is so they can
offer the support for the heavier heads so players have more control. Also have
a think about which conditions you play the most in when thinking about which
wedge you should buy. The table above gives a rough guide as to what each wedge
is used for.
Does it Matter What Type of Wedge Head
you Have?Wedge heads can come in 5 different materials: gunmetal,
steel, chrome, copper and sometimes nickel which is the softest metal.
The softer the face of the club then the more
feel you will get when using it, you will also find that you get more spin with
the softer metals. The drawback is that the grooves on the face will wear down
What is Bounce?Bounce is
an added construction on the sole plate of the club. The sole of the club will
hit the ground before the front face of the club. Zero bounce means the bottom
of the club is level and will stick into the ground when swung, this can be
useful for those situations when you are in thin grass or have tight lines.
Bounce on a club enables you to play in long grass or from a bunker, the bottom
of the club will skim the ground and stop the club getting tangled in the grass
allowing you to strike the ball correctly.
