BOUNCE & GRIND
Julie Roberts, PGA
Director of Golf
The good news for women who love to play golf and are straight bored of getting flowers and chocolate… Callaway’s Mack Daddy 4 Chrome wedges are available with custom specs for women! YES, finally!
But what the heck is bounce and grind? Are we dancing or playing golf?
Grind is well described in the following post from the Callaway community golf forum (click to graphic to enlarge):

The degree of bounce further helps players define the correct wedge setup to match their specific needs and style of play. A standard is 12 degrees as the chart below shows. If more bounce/grind options are needed, customizing a men’s wedge works too! Ideally have your coach or golf instructor show you what works best for you in a ‘real grass’ situation, but if you are glued to your phone right now try this link so you have an idea in mind.

Having a good set of clubs without the proper wedge(s) is like having the perfect outfit but no coat to go with it, what’s the use? Too often a short game lesson reveals a student rarely uses the ‘S’ club as it is only being selected for sand shots and it happens with women most often. What’s worse is the sand wedge is poorly fit to their game so it’s a double negative. Know this…if you aren’t using the Sand wedge for a variety of shots, you are for sure losing strokes. So if scoring lower is your goal, it’s time to break out of your Sand wedge ‘box’ and bring on the Bounce & Grind!
