I'm currently using 4 SCOR wedges as they've been the best wedges I've used for approach shots.

Green-side chips and pitches, as well as sand shots have been a struggle at best.  The closer I get, the worse I get.

 

Recommendation I got:

Length +.25"
Flex S300

Shaft XP95

Color code Orange
Lofts 50 56 62

Test Set:

50/SS  (12 bounce)  Green Dot  KBS Tour X Shaft  Ping 5L Round Blue Grip

54/WS  (14 bounce)  Green Dot  KBS Tour X Shaft  Ping 5L Round Blue Grip

Play a lot of soft turf around here; really want to try a set with more bounce.  Stoked for this test opportunity!
