Bounce on a wedge

Depending on your age you might remember when wedges where either just pitching or sand wedges. Well things are quite different now. There are infinite variations of loft and lie angles and, as the videos in this section show, the bounce angle of wedges can have a dramatic effect on the playing characteristics of your wedge. While it might be true to say that most golfers have quite enough to think about before and during (and after!) their golf swings, learning about bounce on a wedge is a very worthwhile endeavour.
