Recommendations for low bounce 60 degree wedge

Recommended Posts

My last 60 degree wedge was a gunmetal Cleveland low bounce lob wedge I bought back in 2005 I believe. A 588 I believe but not sure. I forget the bounce specs but I know it was very low. I come in very shallow on the ball and needed the low bounce to avoid blading chips and pitches off tight fairway lies and I also used my 60 most from green side bunkers laying the face open. I finally replaced my clubs and went with a Vokey L grind as it was the lowest bounce option at the time. While it is only 4 degrees of bounce Im realizing the bounce is unique on the sole and seems to play like a slightly higher bounce wedge would …at least for for me. I’m still having a hard time with getting the leading edge under the ball. Consistently blading chips and pitches from very tight fairway lies and blading more bunker shots than I ever had before. Open to any suggestions for a low bounce 60 degree wedge that can get the leading edge truly on the turf in both square and fully opened positions to allow me to slide under the ball easier. T-Grind possibly?…or anything from any other manufacturer as well. Thanks

Do a search, there have been several recent threads on the T grind.  It sounds like what you are looking for (I hate the L grind too).

If you're talking about the old 588 Tour Action wedges then they had pretty full soles without much grind/relief. The current Cleveland Zipcore 60 Low Bounce would be a good option, as would the low bounce Vokey K-Grind and potentially the S-Grind as well.

I use a 60 degree L Grind with 4 degrees of bounce.  I also have a Cobra Tour Trusty 64 degree wedge with 8 degrees of bounce.  When holding them side by side it appears that the Vokey 60 has more bounce than the Cobra 64.  The Cobra is very useful from bunkers and short sided pitches.

I put a Vokey 60* T in the bag a few weeks ago and I am very pleased. The club itself will certainly never prevent you from getting the face under the ball. Haven't gotten to take it anywhere with shaved areas around the greens, but I look forward to it.

As a bonus, I only waited about 2 weeks to receive it, while I'm still waiting on a 54 F.

IMO, T is the perfect club for those lies.  A shallow swing just slides along the turf under the ball, with no divot, and it comes out high and soft, with some check.  And the leading edge doesn't come up much when laying the face open (especially compared to the L), so it's great for little "mini-flops" to close pins from those lies.   

 

The T is pretty similar to the V grind, in that it has a decent amount of bounce on the forward bounce surface, but that surface is narrow, so the leading edge doesn't come up a lot when it is laid back.

Cleveland Zipcore 60* low bounce. Or if you want a little wider sole you can order a Tour Rack Full sole with the S grind option.

Wasn’t there an option for a raw T grind at one point? 

 

Looks like it.  The Wedgeworks page for the T text says its available in Raw or Tour Chrome, but the drop down selection box only includes Tour Chrome.
