Which Vokey grind for thick rough?

I’m looking to get a 60 with high (possibly mid) bounce. My home course in Missouri has thick and strong bluegrass-fescue rough, along the fairways and green side. It’s almost strawlike, and stands up tall. (When I lived in Chicago, we had that soft, willowy rough that would tangle up your shaft when it got long) I’m looking for some bounce to help fight thru the rough on pitches and short sided chips from that straw like rough. Also full shots from fairway (wonderful zoysia, which tees up ball on every shot). I don’t plan on opening up this 60 wedge much. Mostly square contact, only opening up the face for soft bunkers.

The options that make sense are the 60.14 K, the 60.12 D and the 60.10 S. I was thinking 60.14 full K grind would be the one, but don’t haven’t seen much discussion about this specific scenario. Thanks

    K grind is like cheating out of sand and deep rough.

    I’ll second the above post. K grind I feel like is what you’re looking forward. D grind is awesome and may be a little more versatile, but thick rough there is no equal to the K grind

    K grind shoukd for the bill perfectly if you don't plan to ever use the club in firmer lies.

    K grind is probably best, but S is also good.

    I have just put a D in my bag (the grind I mean) and I find it excellent in softer conditions and out of the bunker.

    K grind for rough. D if you need a little more normalcy for bunkers or full swing
