When to replace wedges? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the optimal time to replace wedges for those that play a lot of golf. WRXer ‘GoalieDad30’ kicks off the thread saying:

“I play around 150 rounds a year and practice pretty much close to daily. When practicing and warming up for my rounds, I will hit a minimum of 40-50 balls with my wedges daily. I’m wearing a nickel-sized spot on my wedge faces (sadly, it used to be dime-sized …. ).

I replace the grips on the wedges probably three times a year. What’s the rule of thumb/conventional wisdom on when to replace the wedges? I play lofts of 50 / 54/ 58 for gap, sand, lob. They wear in inverse proportion …. 58 is most worn, followed by 54 & 50.

I’ve been a Cleveland guy for 25+ years, so I was hoping to wait until whatever their 2023 intros will be, but I’m concerned I’ve gone too long. Current wedges probably have 200+ rounds on them, with associated practice.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • StephenMatt: “For someone using them as much as you, I would probably say at least once per year.”
  • zap311: “Titleist says after 75 rounds you will see degrading spin around the greens, but they also have a vested interest in selling more Vokeys. Based upon your frequency of play, it would seem like you should replace at least your 58* every year and maybe the 54* too. I heard that pros replace the gap wedge less often since it’s mainly used for full shots and rarely in the sand. Ultimately, the answer to your question is to replace it (a) when you start to see your ball check less than you’re used to and (b) when you can afford to get a new one. “
  • RacineBoxer: “You are probably in that 1% of golfers who should replace them every year. If money is no object, you could replace them 2-3 times if you wanted.”
