Your wedges are known as scoring clubs for a reason. The closer you can hit shots with them to the whole, the easier and more makeable your next putt will be, and that’s when the game gets really fun, when you turn a three-shot situation into an up-and-down.
To make sure you have the ideal wedges in your bag to help you with scoring, it’s important to know a few things. You want your equipment to support the kinds of shots you like to hit from the lie conditions you will encounter most frequently on the course.
To give you trusted tools in these scoring situations, Honma T//World wedge line brings you versatility Not only in loft options but also In the soul, configurations of each wedge to help you play shots confidently from any lie.
As the loft ranges progress within the Honma wedge line, clubheads are built to optimize trajectory, spin and optimal ball flight, even on the shortest of shots. The flat blade design of the 48/10, 50/10, 52/10 and 54/10 lofted wedges creates a constant face thickness for a mid-to-low Center of Gravity (CG), optimal spin and precise distance control on full shots.
The reverse taper blade design in the 54/12, and all 56, 58 and 60 wedges delivers a higher CG by gradually increases thickness from bottom-to-top and laterally from heel-to-toe, to ensure the ball grips to the club face longer, especially on high face strikes to drive lower launching, higher spinning shots around the green.
When you have a full wedge shot into the green, you definitely don't want your wedges to dig, so Honma's expert engineers created the I-Sole in the 48, 50, 52, and 54-degree wedges. This design features subtle trailing edge relief for full sole performance with easy turf interaction on both full and intermediate-distance pitch shots.
The C-Sole configuration available in the 54, 56, 58, 60-degree wedges features an aggressive heel and toe trailing edge relief with a flat bounce surface for shot making versatility around the green. So you'll find an agreeable turf interaction whether you're opening the face or keeping it square. You'll find these wedges to be among the most versatile in industry.
Honma also makes the S-Sole grind available in select 58 and 60-degree models for golfers who like to hold the face square at impact and simply trust the design of the club's bounce to deliver favorable launch, spin and trajectory. These clubs offer wider soles, with four-way relief for more forgiving shot making and higher effective bounce.
So, if you know how you prefer to hit your wedge shots from a variety of conditions, it is a good idea to look for more bounce in the sand and in fluffier lie conditions and you can achieve that with an S- or C-Sole Honma wedge. The S-Sole simply provides more versatility for a wider range of shot-making from different conditions.
As far as lofts go, consider keeping a consistent gap of lofts in your wedges to eliminate any distance ranges in which you don't have a club to fit that shot. Try a 52, 56, 60 configuration or 50, 54, 58 depending on the loft of pitching wedge. You don't want a gap larger than four or five degrees between your pitching wedge and your approach (gap) wedge.
We know you'll enjoy the precision, feel, distance control and exciting spin action in the Honma T// World wedge line. Try the clubs that best fit your set and we look forward to hearing your feedback in their performance!
