Scott from Minnesota here. I have a mix of wedges- Wilson Staff FG Tour V4 PW and GW (from my iron set) and a Mizuno S18 56 degree SW. My strengths with my wedges- good distance control and trajectory for pitch shots and I can create decent spin to stop my shots. My weaknesses (just to pick a few of the many) - full shot ballooning, duffs with short chips and no flop shot ability. My handicap index is 11.2

Troy from Tobiano British Columbia Canada

 

Wedge play is the weakest part of my game and I am looking for a sole grind with good turf interaction, especially from tight lies

 

I currently play Bridgestone J15 wedges 50, 54 and 60 degree

 

I am a 13 handicap
