Purchased 3 wedges, 50/12, 52/12 and 58/12

Not necessarily. It's very common that lob wedges are shorter than other wedges. It just depends on the brand, some are same length, many are not.

Thanks, new to golf. I just thought they’d all be the same so I could set myself up the same

Hi All.

I purchased 3 wedges 50/12, 52/12 and 58/12

the 58 one is shorter than the other two. Should they all be the same length?

 

 

Why 12* bounce?

I'm with @fozcycle on this....why are all 3 wedges 12 degrees of bounce?  Bounce is your friend, but having a choice of bounce with your wedges gives you options based on lie conditions.

You may want 12* on your sand wedge but not so good for gap and lob Wedges. It all depends on the course conditions that you play. Tight lies demand less bounce, Sand & thick grass call for higher bounce.

Congrats on getting the three wedges. I have played my GW/SW/LW at same lengths & bounce in the past. But the lofts were gapped minimum ~4 degrees (I.E., 50, 54, 58). Mine were high bounce and chose for thick grass at course I played at the time. Only when I play tight lie courses or winter golf do I switch to lower bounce in 2 of 3 wedges. I like high bounce for sand shots. But with wedges everyone is different. Good luck with your wedges.
