Today, we are reviewing what will probably be 2024’s most sought-after trio of golf wedges to feature on courses worldwide. They are the Callaway Jaws Raw Face Chrome Wedge, PING s159, and Titleist Vokey SM10.

Wedge FAQ

Closeup of golf player choosing club from a golf bag.
Q. Do I need to get new wedges if I’m a beginner?
A. Not necessarily! Focus on mastering your swing with your current wedges before investing in upgrades.

Q. How often should I replace my wedges?
A. It depends on usage and wear. Look for grooves becoming worn or faces losing their bite as signs it’s time for an upgrade.

Q. What’s the best loft configuration for these wedges?
A. There’s no one-size-fits-all answer. When choosing your lofts, consider your swing, distance gaps, and typical course conditions. Getting fitted is always recommended!

Q. Should I get all three brands in my bag?
A. Mixing and matching wedges is perfectly acceptable! Choose the head shape and grind that best suits each wedge’s purpose.

Q. Can I use just one wedge for all situations?
A. Technically, yes, but it limits your shot options and control. Having at least 3-4 wedges with varying lofts and grinds is ideal.
