The bounce of a wedge is determined by the bounce angle, sole width, sole camber and sole grind.The key to good wedge play is selecting the proper bounce in your higher lofted wedges to match your swing type and the conditions in which you typically play.Equally important is selecting the appropriate combination of gap, sand and lob wedges to provide you with the proper short game yardage gaps.
Bounce is built into the sole of a wedge to keep it from digging into the turf or sand.
The greater the bounce, the more the sole resists digging.
Bounce helps prevent "fat" shots by keeping the club moving through the turf or sand.
Having enough bounce is particularly important on sand shots.
Too much bounce can make shots from firm conditions more difficult to execute.
