Bounce is the angle from the leading edge of the club face across the bottom of the club. If you have 7 degrees of bounce, the bottom part (part that rests on the ground) of the club will angle down toward the ground at 7 degrees. This is designed to keep the leading edge of the club from digging into the ground or sand as clubface strikes the ball. If you play where there is soft, deep sand you generally want more bounce. If the ground is hard and the sand soft, you may be well advised to use a sand wedge with lots of bounce (7-10 degrees) and a wedge from the ground with little bounce. Hit em straight and seldom--

There are several variables in this problem. Different balls have different degrees of elasticity. And then there are different kinds of surfaces on which balls can bounce. A ball does not bounce the same way on a grass lawn that it does on a concrete floor. Also the description "high in the air" is not precise. Different heights can produce different numbers of bounces.

It's usually around 56 degrees, with something like 10 degrees of bounce.

Temperature does not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. Let's say you bounce a rubber ball on the grass. The result will be different then bouncing a rubber ball on a concrete surface. The result is different because you are using a solid, hard surface to bounce the ball with. But the temperature will not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. you can test it out for youself.

Different surfaces will absorb different amounts of the balls energy

it depends if they use different types of wood because different wood means different dencity ,and a more solid foundation for the ball to bounce higher
