Wedge Gapping and Bounce

Making Your Best Selection

Your wedge set makeup is critical to helping you play better golf.  Correct wedge gapping and bounce helps to promote optimal distance, contact, and control, all while giving you the most confidence in your short game and helping to lower your scores.

Precise distance gapping is a critical step in selecting the best wedge set make-up for your game. Vokey recommends 4°-6° of loft separation between your wedges resulting in 10-15 yard gaps. Most players will benefit from carrying four wedges which lead to tighter distance gaps and more full swings.

Bounce Is Your Friend

Bounce Is Your Friend

Proper bounce for your swing type and course conditions is the next step in selecting the best wedges for your game. Bounce helps prevent the wedge from digging into the turf or sand, promoting optimal contact, control, and maximum spin. Bob always says, "Bounce is your friend."
