I don’t know about you, but I’ve recently got below the mark of 20 handicaps and decided to improve my short game. For this purpose, I’ve started to look for a good golf wedge for mid-handicappers. In this case, golf wedges will serve as awesome rescue clubs. I’ve picked a few popular U.S. manufacturers and tested the best models of wedges they can offer to mid-handicappers like me. I’ve figured out there are 4 major types of such wedges.
Major types of golf wedges for middle handicappers:
- For 100 yards from the green – choose a pitching wedge type to let the ball land and roll in a smooth way;
- For the distance from 70 to 100 yards – pick a gap wedge – your ball’s speed will be decreased and you won’t hit it too hard. It also prevents from swinging the turf;
- For 70-80 yards – pick a sand wedge, especially if you ought to hit the ball on a bunker instead of the lawn;
- Being 50-70 yards away from the lawn – pick a lob golf wedge to perform a flight arc with the ball;
Due to such recommendations that were given by my friend, a professional golfer, and my tests I’ve managed to create a review of the best golf wedges for mid-handicappers.
Personal top 5 golf wedges for middle handicappers:
- Wilson is good for right-handed golfers. Its shaft made of steel;
- Pinemeadow Golf is another wedge for right-handed mid-handicappers, its shaft is only 125 grams;
- LAZRUS offers the set of 3 wedges with forged heads, for right-handed golfers;
- Wilson also offers a black chrome wedge;
- Cleveland Golf is also made of steel wedge, for right-handed golfers;
