    Anyone had a wedge delofted ??

    Seems I have a gapping issue since I bought my new irons, 45 - 52 is too much and I've not long bought the 52

    Has anyone had their wedge delofted from a pro/shop ??

    if they are forged then not a problem. however, if you bend your 52 to 50 for example you will also lose 2 degrees of bounce.

    you could bend your 45 to 46 and your 52 to 51.

    I did read about the losing of bounce, no even sure what effect that will be.

    Which will make a change from it getting lobbed

    Depends on your hand position at impact !
    I did exactly this 52 to 50 from 12 bounce to 10 But I play most wedge shots with hands forward and don’t take big divots,
    If you play hands level with ball you may notice !!!
    Imo just do it and see if it makes a difference my guess is you won’t even notice .
    If you don’t like it you can put it back to original spec quite easy.
    The only difference you will notice is the length on full shots which I presume is what you want to gap your yardages.

    Personally I would bend the pitching wedge to 46° & the 52° to 50°. 45 is strong for a PW & the 52 should be OK if the original bounce is 8° or more. If you haven't been fitted for bounce the new bounce is just s likely to be right for you. A couple of degrees for an average golfer isn't critical anyway.

    I have a 46, 52 and 58. Nice even spacing and know my yardages. What is the gap in distance terms between the PW, gap wedge and SW

    Having checked, my pw is 46 but for me thats too big to 52, well i can hit my pw 130ish but barely 110 with my 52, 20 yards gap is too big.
