Many wedge shot instructions say open the face 15 degrees and open your stance a corresponding 15 degrees.  Doesn't that affect the bounce of the club and does that require an additional adjustment?

I have a 56 with 14 loft. When I bought it I was told it was designed for soft sand, which is what I asked for; but was told not very good for use as a general purpose wedge. Chipping; pitching 100 yds etc.

I have found the exact opposite. It is a better pitching wedge than my 8 degree I had previously.

What is your recommendation on degree for pitching? chipping etc.

Bob:  Titleist has the strongest, most exacting models of forged irons in the industry.  Why don't you manufacture and offer a line of forged wedges to complement and complete them?

I currently play a C9 swingweight lov wedge. I like how light it feels so I can hit very delicate lofted shots. Have you ever heard of anyone (pros) with a preference for a light lob wedge? I play my 4-AW at D6 and my SW at D7. For some reason that light lov wedge just feels good and results follow.

Hello Bob, What's more important in the performance of your, or any wedge, the depth of the groove, the width of the groove, or the configuration of the cut in the groove? Thank you for taking my question.

Matthew G

HI Bob. Is there a possibility you will consider a refinishing option with past wedges to get the custom treatment? Also, do you make different weighted heads without having to "port" them? Thank you!

I am 75, 6 feet tall, weigh about 140 and have a slow swing speed.  Like most golfers I would like to hit the ball as fa, and as straight as possible.  What length should my driver be?

Can you tell me exactly what the channel on the bottom sole of the wedge does. I think it is on your P wedge. I like the wide sole and the channel is something I just can not get my mind around.

Hey Bob!

Every time I take a swing with one of your spin-milled wedges at my Pro V1, it leaves the ball with 5 cuts across the ball rendering it unplayable for the next stroke. Wutz up with that?

I am only a 8 hc amateur. How do the pros manage such destructive cutting after the ball is well-struck?

Thanks for taking questions. I've been playing a 48* PW for years, but the loft on my new GI 9-iron is only 40* which leaves a big distance gap. As lofts get stronger in most iron sets, are you altering your approach to wedge makeup? Specifically, will you be making stronger pitching wedges? I realize you can bend them a degree or two stronger, but it seems like there's a need for high quality stock wedges at 45* or 46* now.
