I am looking for a 60 degree wedge.  And it really doesnt matter what the
bounce is.  It must have a steel shaft and preferably a stiff flex.  Can
you give me a few suggestions on some different ones.  My email address is

people will voice there opinions if you dont mind. thanks

The best wedges are made by Cleveland, but they are highly priced, and are
for the more skilled player.  For many amateurs, with a bad short game will
play better, with more of a cavity back wedge, such as Callaway.

I like the BeCu Cleveland 60* and 56* wedge.

My 61 degree Ping Zing 2 lob wedge allowed me to fly a pitch directly
into the hole yesterday for a bird.  This particular club of mine is not
for sale!

I hope you followed your own advice a few months back and hit the
flagstick with your pitch!

I had a dynamite sand save that hit the stick square and dropped straight
down 6 in. from the hole Sat.  I don't know what looks cooler, the "bounce
in" kind or the "stick smacker" kind.

Consider a Callaway Tour Series LW.  Excellent design and great
performance.

A few months ago my SO hit the stick *hard* with an overly strong pitch
from a ways off the green.  Dropped dead straight down into the cup from
about knee height.  Damndest thing I'd seen in a while.

I hit the stick and lip out chips pretty often, sometimes 2-3 times a
round, but the cup never seems to have that magnetic attraction that it
does for the "lucky bastard" golfers I get paired up with sometimes.

My first day out with my Callaway Tour Series SW I holed out a
15 yard chip.  That's a good ju-ju club!  Come to think of it, I
knocked in a 50 footer with it this morning too.  I've holed out
quite a few from inside 40 yards with my wedges--it'll happen once
in a while if you're making good strokes.

You have to practice a lot with a wedge to get it close to the hole
all the time and to learn to make it do tricks for you.  The most versatile
lob wedges have relatively wide blades, moderate to low bounce, and
generally rounded contours.  If you play on bermuda, look for one that
doesn't have a protruding sole flange, because it can catch on the grass
as you start your backswing.  The prototypical lob wedge fitting this
description is the 588, but the Titleist triple grind is very similar,
and the Callaway Tour Series is another excellent and versatile design.
I'd resist the impulse to buy a chromed lob wedge (or any chromed wedge
for that matter) because it sucks to catch a faceful of glare when you're
trying to set up a delicate pitch.  Go for stainless or (better) the
Cleveland RTG (Raw Tour Grind) 588.

Some lob wedges have square leading edges, like the Wilson 60.  I
prefer rounded but ....
