In the pro shop I get asked everyday what is bounce and what will it do for me.
•Bounce is built into the sole of a wedge to keep it from digging into turf and or sand.•The greater the bounce the more the sole resists digging. Bounce helps prevent ‘fat’ shots by keeping the club moving through the turf and sand.•Having enough bounce is particularly important on sand shots.•Too much bounce can make shots from hard surfaces difficult to perform.•If you are a digger or a player who takes a big divot and lots of sand, you will need more bounce to get the most out of your new wedge.•If you are a sweeper or a player who takes very little divots, if any, then you will need less bounce.
If you have any questions please stop by the pro shop or see your CPGA professional at your course.
