Grind Types on Wedges and Their Benefits


Recommended Posts

I just received my first S-Grind and wedge June of last year and started delving into the various grinds on the market. 

Which grind do you use on your wedges and why? Noticeable benefits for the various shots you play?

Love my Callaway PM Grind 54/14 and 60/12 with C grind sole.  I have no trouble with these high bounce wedges off any lie with the C grind.

The grinds and bounce that work for my swing + the course conditions I play in are what i play.

The Vokey wedge for tool is a good resource I use to get the options that for me and use that to help find options in other brands if I don’t get vokeys or use the fit tool from the other brands

I have:

52/f grind 8 bounce
56/ s grind 10 bounce
60/ k grind 14 bounce

I like having options around the green: I chip and bump and run with my 56, and hit higher lofted and bunker shots with my 60.

when I played the Vokey's I was an M grind guy for my 50 and 54.  The 58 was an S grind.  I tend to pick my wedges a lot so I like to have very little bounce for whatever reason.  The way they set on the ground just suits my eye as well.  I also find that with my around the green game between the 54 and 58 I think those grinds give me the greatest ability to hit a multitude of shots with them.

on my vokeys I had f grind on my 52 and 56. I use the clubs for shots that I keep my face square, and I'm rather steep so I need the bounce. I had a low bounce lob wedge k grind, but I took it out of the bag as it didn't have enough bounce for the conditions I play in most often. Thinking of maybe trying the 60.12 D grind for a lob wedge if I stick with the vokeys, but for now I have ordered ping glide 3.0 with there SS grind to put in the bag and try out this spring.
