Six of the Best Golf Wedges for 2020
As many of you Hole19ers start to head back to the golf course, we have one question: How's your wedge game holding up?
If you're getting that niggling feeling that you could (and should) be performing a little better from 100 yards and in, chances are a new set of wedges has crossed your mind.
Following on from our rundown of the best game-improvement irons and best drivers for 2020, we've decided to list some great wedge options which could be better suited to your game. Dial-in your approaches and improve your play around the greens with this collection of the best wedges in 2020. We've thrown in some reviews too.
Callaway JAWS MD5 Wedges
These great wedges from Callaway boast more spin for players of all abilities thanks to the 'most aggressive grooves in golf'. Guided by the world-renowned wedge designer - Roger Cleveland - the Callaway MD5 wedge offers incredible performance thanks (in part) to the enhanced JAWS groove.
The massive range spans from 46-64 degrees of loft in two options of finish: traditional chrome or a sleek 'Tour Grey'. These wedges take spin and control to the next level.
Titleist Vokey SM8 Wedges
If there is any name that's synonymous with wedge design, it has to be Bob Vokey. Back in 2018 the highly-successful Vokey SM7 wedges were released and the newer Vokey SM8s have received similar rave reviews since they hit the shelves.
The centre of gravity has been moved further forward making it easier to square up the face at impact, and with 23 possible options and 4 finishes to choose from, there's every chance you'll find the perfect wedge(s) for your game.
Cleveland CBX2 Wedges
Coming in at around £30-£40 cheaper per wedge than the top-of-the-range models in this list, the Cleveland CBX2 wedges are a great way to improve your play from 100 yards and closer, without hurting your wallet too much.
The wedges - Cleveland believe - help average golfers improve their short game by increasing feel even when they don’t hit it perfectly. Of course, not surprisingly, for many of us that happens a lot. The sweet spot sits closer to the toe which better matches where average golfers tend to strike.
Cobra King MIM Wedges
This wedge option from Cobra is the first to feature a fully 'metal injection moulded' head construction. To you and I, and every other average golfer out there, what this means is we should get better feel and performance on every golf shot.
The CNC milled face, with circular milling pattern and deeper grooves, helps produce greater 'zip' on the golf ball.
Ping Glide 3.0 Wedges
Made from 431 stainless steel, these wedges are higher-spinning, softer-feeling and have a lighter overall weight than previous Ping models. They also have a more rounded head profile and provide more forgiveness than the Ping Glide 2.0 due to 5% more MOI (resistance to twisting at impact).
Though the video below was released before the Callaway JAWS MD5 wedges had been released, James Robinson considers whether the Ping Glide 3.0 is the highest-spinning wedge on the market.
Mizuno T20 Wedges
The face of the Mizuno T20 aims to increase friction in dry conditions and, when it's wet. it looks to disperse the moisture upward and away. The 'T' stands for 'teardrop' which accurately describes the shape of the club, while its vertical grooves are responsible for forcing water away from the face.
More weight is pushed higher up in the club head and helps raise the centre of gravity leading to more spin and forgiveness when missing the sweet spot.
