55 degrees is the loft, not the bounce. The bounce is the angle of the trailing edge (heel) of the club to flat (0 degree bounce). In the Sure Out the bounce probably high, in the 12 to 14 degree range.
I just researched and purchased the Hogan Sure-Out sand wedge. The loft on the club is 56 degrees. The bounce on the club is actually only 6 degrees. What makes this club design compelling is that the extended length of the sole actually makes it play like a club with 14-16 degrees of bounce. What this design brings to the club is a ability to hit sand shots with a traditional open face as well as a standard square set-up. I purchased this club for three distinct shots: 1 = soft and deep sand, 2 = heavy southernrough where you have to dig down and almost blast the ball out and you do not want to bury the club in th dirt, and 3 = the ability to play a ball off difficult lies and surfaces where you have to make a steeply decending swing and you do not want to risk digging the club in and hitting it fat.
The 54 is a sand wedge, SWs have a higher bounce to get the ball out of sand easier.
A 56 degree is a sand wedge.
Yes, the hogan bc wedge was a non square groove club.
Bounce is the angle of the sole to the ground. A lower bounce wedge will perform better on courses with tight lies, fairway shots and tight compacted sand. Typically a Low Bounce wedge will be in the 0-10° range.
Depends what type of ground you play on. Hard ground would be low bounce 4 or so, medium ground would be mid bounce 8 or so and soft ground would be 12 or so. A lot of bounce is good for playing out of bunkers with a lot of sand. Low bounce is ideal for bunkers with little sand.
I carry a Lob wedge in my bag and it is a 60 degree loft club. It is one of 4 wedges that I carry. The others are a Pitching wedge which is 45 degree, a Gap wedge which is 51 degree, and a Sand wedge which is 56 degree.
The "D" is for Dual. It's a dual wedge w/ a 50 degree between pitching wedge and sand wedge.
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--
Ben Hogan made gap wedges, log wedges and sand wedges. A pitching wedge is also available from Ben Hogan but these are usually included in the irons.
the sand wedge for this set is 55 degrees
It all depends, and without knowing your game I could not tell you the best for you, however I will share a few tips with you. One factor which is key, is the type of ground that your play on. If you play on a links course where the ground is hard and crusty a low bounce club is ideal as it will slide under the ball, if you used a high bounce club the club would bounce up too soon, and you could thin your shot. If you play on a course which is often soaked by rain, then a high bounce club is ideal, as a low bounce club would dig too easily causing a chunk. It also depends how much sand is in the bunkers you play. If you play on a course with little sand in the bunkers, a low bounce club will allow you to slide under the ball and get it up quickly, a high bounce club will hit the bottom of the bunker and you will most likely thin your shot. If there is a lot of sand in the bunkers, a high bounce club is ideal as a low bounce club would dig too easily and you could end up leaving your ball in the bunker. I have a 56 degree sand wedge with 10 degrees of bounce, and a 60 degree lob wedge with 4 degrees of bounce. I have this because I like to play flop shots and feel I can easily get under the ball to get elevation. The 60 degree with 4 degrees of bounce is not ideal from a fluffy lie in the rough because it will go straight under the ball, that is one of the reasons I have 10 degrees of bounce on my 56, so if I do come across that situation, I can hit a controlled shot with the 56 rather than take my chances with the 60.
It's usually around 56 degrees, with something like 10 degrees of bounce.
45 degrees and sand wedge 55 degrees. They sell a gap wedge to bridge the 10 degree gap which is 50 degrees and stamped A on the sole_I am currently looking for one!!

Not very well. In a pinch you could use a wedge in a situation where you'd normally use a sand wedge, if you didn't have a sand wedge, but it probably wouldn't work as well.
what sport do you use a sand wedge <><><> Golf- when your ball lands in a sand trap.
There are primarily 3 types of wedges, Pitching, Sand and Lob. A Pitching wedge has about 46-48 degrees of loft, a Sand wedge has about 54-56 degrees of loft and a lob wedge has about 58- even 64 degrees. Depending on player preference they can have low or high bounce which can assist getting out of the sand and help when playing certain types of course, if you have a low bounce club on soggy turf you may go under the ball easier, not getting proper contact. There are also gap wedges which are designed to fit between the Pitching and Sand wedge, at about 50 or 52 degrees.
No you don't have to have a sand wedge in your bag, but I would recommend you have at least one wedge in your bag for chipping and pitching.
Gene Sarazen invented the sand wedge and started using it in 1935.
If the iron has an "A" on the sole, it's an "Approach" wedge, otherwise known as the "Gap" wedge. It fills the gap between pitching wedge and sand wedge. It is usually 52 degrees of loft, plus or minus a degree. It's a great asset on the course. I carry one instead of carrying a 4 iron.
It could be any number of degrees of loft. Typically they are in the range of about 56º, 58º or 60º.
Sand Wedge, Pitching Wedge and a Gap Wedge
Approach Wedge. Its between a pitching wedge and sand wedge.
That would be a gap wedge. Between a pitching wedge and a sand wedge.
ball doesn't bounce because the sand takes all the force of the ball
