    Looking at upgrading my wedges; with the multitude of grinds that are now available; do you buy your wedges (grinds and bounce) mostly for your home course? I have been researching and have now pretty much confused myself when it comes to what grinds and bounce that I should be playing. Always been a pretty confident wedge player and want to buy whats best for my swing. Anybody have a good wedge fitter close to the Red Deer area?

    Blake - I totally understand your question about purchasing wedges with grinds designed for your own course conditions. When I did my fitting for my wedges, one of the questions was directly related to where I play most often, and what the conditions are there. In my particular case, I play over 90% of my games through the season at my home course. As such I ended up with grinds that fit my swing and my course agronomy. I can see if you were not a member at a course, and travelled around a lot this could be an issue. No question I would need a different grind if I played a lot down south in sandy conditions or deep bermuda rough.
    Hope you find the fitter you need to get you into some new SM8's :)

    Yes, select your bounce and grinds to suit where you will be playing most of your golf, Im sure your locap PGA Pro will help with some guidance..

    I'd get them for your home course since that's where you will be playing most of your rounds. I found that the wedges I get usually fit all courses. It's either that or I adjust myself well quickly lol.
  5. Hi Blake,

    Aligned that working with a wedge fitter is best - Vokey has also designed a Wedge Selector Tool that asks you vetting questions, which provides the types of wedges/grinds/lofts to fit your game. Give it a try and let us know if you have any other questions.

    Titleist Thursdays, well I like the sound of that.
    I will give them a call.
    Thanks for your help!
  9. I would be more inclined to get wedges that fit your swing, rather than worry about what course you are playing. For me, the determining factor has always been the bounce. All of my wedges have low bounce. I then adjust my club selection according to the shot I need. I think too many people are hung up on the grind of the wedge. I consider myself an above average wedge player as I have several different shots I can play depending on conditions, and to be truthful, I have 3 different grinds on my SM6s, and I can't tell the difference between any of them with respect to grind. Get the clubs that feel right for you. Period.
