Does the amount of Bounce you have on your wedges affect your distance from the Fairway?

I seem to hit my Vokey 58 degree with 9 degrees of bounce farther than i hit my Vokey 56 Degree with 14 degrees of bounce. Is this normal?

Thanks is advance.

Fran, 

The bounce won't have as much of an effect as the lofts will, but can have a small effect.  You will start to see a difference in distance if you have a wedge with too little bounce and the club starts digging too much.  The club won't properly get through the turf, leaving your with heavier ("chunks") shots.

Concur with Cameron.   It may be that you simply hit a more solid golf shot with the 58-09.    Even with other clubs you may hit a more lofted club farther - I can hit a 27H about 160 consistently but the distance on a 24H is actually the same or about a couple yards less.  I also hit an 8 iron the same distance every time but my 7 iron sometimes hits 3 yards less or 10 yards more.
