What's your bunker play setup?


Recommended Posts

I use my 54/12 SW. I try to keep my weight even on both feet so I don't dig in too much. Also...

* If I need to get it up really quick, it's the 60/10.

* If the sand is wet and hard-packed, I'll pick it off the top with a PW.

knowing the course was pretty wet, yesterday I used a 56/14 wedge and it worked well both from bunkers and rough around the greens. might be a bit bouncy for drier times.

That’s me...wouldn’t quite say it’s like cheating, but it almost is. Once I figured out you can open the face and play it like a flop shot my bunker play improved exponentially.

Mack Daddy 4 58* X Grind, weight 75% on front foot, clubface very open, full swing with lots of speed.

 

For longer bunker shots i.e. over 20 feet I use a lower lofted club, which one depends on the distance. Same full stroke every time.

Thanks for the replies. I've been messing around with my wedges recently and trying to figure out what to go to out of bunkers. Right now I've got a 62-10 and a 56-10 in the bag. Not sure if that's enough bounce on the 56 for me out of bunkers. Our bunkers just got uncovered, so I haven't had a chance to hit any shots out of them. I'll never open up the 56 around the greens, just in the bunkers. It will just be used for straight forward chips and pitches. The 62 would be the club that I open up around the greens. I would rarely use it from the sand.

Up until recently 56°/10 but I've recently switched to a 54°/12, 58°/9 combo.

 

I'm liking this setup as we have a few bunkers at my home course in front of greens that require a long carry to get to the green , especially if the pins at the back of the green and the 54° gives me that extra carry. For greenside bunker shots the 58° does the job.

Vokey 60.06 K-grind (low bounce)

 

I enjoy using it anywhere from about 90 yards and in, though the sand is where the grind really proves its worth. The wide sole pretty much guarantees a decent or better out for me. Its great around the green and I have no problem opening it up for different shots. Definitely has inspired confidence.

 

This type of grind demands near perfect contact, but there isn't a more versatile wedge than one with a wide sole and lower bounce.

I can’t agree any more....love the versatility of the low bounce
