- More on wedge grind: What is it?
Wedge grind: F
“This is an exact type of wedge identifying a full sole, there’s no grind on it. It’s basically a sole which has different bounce angles on it. It’s got camber, it’s got radius, but basically F stands for ‘full sole’. You can use it for all types of players. They are very versatile wedges – you can use them for a lot of different distances.”
Who it suits: This is the most popular grind on the PGA Tour which you can use that in all different types of conditions. It is best used for full pitch shots into the green.
