What is the bounce on wedges and how do you use it?

Tips

In our latest instruction video from Rudding Park, we find out how to use the bounce on wedge shots

Luke Bell from Rudding Park talks you through the basic ideas you need when trying to utilise the bounce on your wedges.

Remember, the bounce helps you make better contact with the ball depending on the conditions you are faced with. A wet course will require more bounce so you can get through the turf easier, and a dry links course will require less bounce.

How to best use the bounce

Set the shaft in a more neutral position. Have it so the shaft is pointing into your sternum. If you have the shaft leaning forward the leaning edge may dig into the turf.

You want to return the club back to the same position you had it at address so you keep the shaft position at impact.
