Set-up/stance - Turning a 60 degree wedge into a 64 deg wedge

Post by Felicity Lodg » Wed, 10 Jan 2001 01:27:21


Hi all,

How many degrees does one need to turn the shaft of a typical 60 deg
wedge with it's sole flat on the ground, in order to achieve a loft of,
say, 64 degs?

Or..perhaps..how many degrees do I need to open my stance (ball still
central afterwards) keeping the club face facing the target, in order to
achieve a loft of, ay, 64 degs?

Which question should I be asking?

What is the answer?

Thanks folks.

PS does a typical 60 deg wedge have a standard amount of bounce?  This must be
relevant...musn't it??

The bounce is key and it varies considerably.

Felicity,

From a geometry standpoint, you'd need to turn the shaft 30 degrees (open) to make
your effective loft 64 degrees.

Gulliver

Don't "keep the club facing the target."
If you open things up that much you'll need to aim a bit left.

Where can I get a copy of Ray Floyds Book _From 60 yards in_.

Got any librarys around there?

It's kind of relevant, on an individual basis...Normally this should be a Low/No
bounce club...But I've seen em with up to 7* or 8*.

IMHO, If you learn the various techniques for hitting a wedge you'll never need one
over 54*, and the 54* is for sand play.
