We played a practice round for our sectional tournament while I was in high school. I must have been in 10 bunkers that round. I went home, read every tip I could about sand play, practiced that week and was ready for the tournament. As fate would have it, I didn’t find one trap, but have been good out of the sand ever since.
|The H-Wedge excels out of sand|
I’m focusing on sand, but the H-Wedge can also be very useful out of heavy rough and even the opposite - tight lies.
Two aspects of the H-Wedge that make it easier to hit than a standard wedge - the club’s leading edge and face-forward design. The leading edge improves lift and the face-forward design renders the dreaded shank a thing of the past. Try as you might, you cannot hit a “hosel rocket” with an H-Wedge!
While they make 50° and 60° versions, I tested the 55° H-Wedge, which can be opened to 60° - unlike past models from Black Magic (a common complaint addressed).
If you struggle out of the sand, you most likely attack the ball at too-steep of an angle or try to scoop the ball. Both are recipes for disaster. With the H-Wedge, all you do is take your normal swing. Not a normal bunker swing, of course, but normal swing ... period.
|The face-forward design of H-Wedge|
In the rough, many amateurs stab at the ball - thinking they need to go in aggressively to get the ball out. With the H-Wedge, though, you can swing as if you’re in the fairway. A gentle swing is all you need. Perhaps it’s the added mass behind the club?
When I played a lot of golf, I was solid with my long irons. Once I joined the once-a-week crew, I began to struggle and lose confidence. That’s when I turned to hybrid irons and they made a huge difference in my game. If you struggle around the greens - giving away valuable strokes - the H-Wedge from Black Magic can be a game changer.
