Just when we’d got our heads around bounce on wedges, what it does, and how much we need, the manufacturers have thrown another variable into the mix. Grind. Like bounce angles before figuring out which grind is right for you can be extremely tough. There are 6 to choose from in the new Titleist Vokey SM7 range adding 100s of combinations to your buying decision.
We really need to understand a little about grind, because it’s a very important variable to consider when buying a wedge. But first we need to refresh our minds on bounce. Bounce is the angle of the sole measured against the ground, when the club is sat square behind the ball and the shaft is vertical. Bounce is your friend, and bounce equals forgiveness. But what about when you lay the face open to play a flop shot, or take some loft off to hit a little knock down runner? This changes the bounce angle and where grind takes over to restore it.
So which one is for you? We’ve listed the 6 grinds available below and caught up with Bob Vokey’s top man, Jeremy Stone, to explain all the grinds available in Titleist's new Vokey SM7 wedge.
