    Pro Tip: Sharpen Your Short Game With Fresh Wedges

     
    Updated: Nov 11, 2020
    Pro Tip Day 24 Wedges

    Over time, the grooves on your wedges deteriorate. That’s just a fact. The more you play and practice, the quicker this degradation occurs.

    The wear is accelerated when you’re playing or practicing any shots that get grass, dirt or sand between the ball and the face. Since golfers encounter a variety of conditions with wedges, it’s best to evaluate your wedges and grooves after the 70th round or so in order to get the best spin performance.

    The average golfer in America plays an average of 18 rounds of golf per year, so if your wedges are more than three years old, it’s definitely time to find new ones. The fact of the matter is if your grooves aren’t fresh, you’re going to get inconsistencies: less spin on bunker shots, more roll out on chip shots and less distance on full shots.

    Thankfully, GlobalGolf sells a wide range of new and gently used wedges to fit your game and your budget. Better yet, the Vokey, Callaway and PING wedges below are available to demo on your own terms via Utry®.

    Titleist Vokey SM8 Jet Black

    Titleist Vokey SM8 Jet Black

    One of the most well-known and respected names when it comes to wedges is Bob Vokey and Titleist’s Vokey line of wedges. With various grinds, bounces and lofts there’s literally something to fit every golfer’s game and tendencies. New for 2020 are the SM8 wedges, which boasts better trajectory and distance control with its different lofts. We really enjoy the Jet Black finish with black paint fill for full stealth mode.

    Callaway PM Grind

    Callaway PM Grind

    Who has one of the best short games of the last decade or more? Phil Mickelson. That’s why Callaway went to him to design his signature wedge with renowned wedge maker Roger Cleveland. The grooves on the Callaway PM grind wedge give all your chips and pitches extra spin. This wedge is like a precision instrument. If it fits your game, you’re going to love it when your up and down stats improve.

    TaylorMade Milled Grind

    If the PM grind doesn’t fit your more classical eye, you can’t get much more traditional than the pre-owned TaylorMade Milled Grind wedge. The CNC machined sole and precise leading edge inspires a lot of confidence at address, and at pre-owned pricing, it’s an incredible deal. In other words, this TaylorMade Wedge could become your new go-to.

    Ping Glide 3.0 SS

    Finally, there are few companies that have consistently redefined the wedge category more than PING. The Glide 3.0 SS wedges have deep grooves, which allows for more spin and control. They come in a classic shape as well as the retro Eye 2 shape. As an added bonus, the PING wedges feature a face coating that retains spin when the ball and/or clubface are wet from rain, sprinklers or morning dew.

    GlobalGolf has whatever you may need to get more up and downs on your next round. If your wedges’ grooves aren’t totally shot, but you still want the feel of a crisp, new wedge, trade in your current set and get credits toward your new ones
