I'm surprised that you experts haven't discussed the amount of bounce on the relevant wedge.

 

Just because your ball is on sand doesn't mean you have to use a wedge labelled "SW" which will typically have a fairly high bounce angle.

If the texture of the sand is thin and heavy, you'll need a low bounce wedge or turn the toe in to reduce the bounce.

If the sand is light and fluffy, you'll need all the bounce you can get.

I forgot we were tour players who can afford to have a wide range of wedges.

We were waiting for your thoughts first OB! :)

That sounds logical - do you change the swing at all as well?

Perhaps I do, but I'm far from expert.  I seem reasonably competent at avoiding bunkers most of the time, but I'm no expert at that either.

The "something" is more important than the loft.

I'll have to take your word for that.

Do I need to know exactly what the "something" is or can I just rely on the knowledge that I have mad skills
And that I know that my sandwedge has a higher something then my lob wedge's something?
And that I have mad skills too

Some members in here are obviously highly skilled in being mad, but how is that relevant?
