What is Bounce?

If you want your wedge to flow through any lie condition without digging in, then you need it to rebound off ground at the right angle. Golfers refer to this as “bounce.” In the diagram on the left, a 56-degree wedge is shown with 12-degrees of bounce. Each loft needs the optimal angle from leading to trailing edge to bounce properly, making it easy to play a variety of shots from any ground condition.

How does Bounce work?

Bounce adds forgiveness and versatility to your wedge game. Bounce keeps the club head flowing smoothly through your shot no matter the ground condition and lie.

How does Bounce make me better?

With the proper bounce on your wedge, it is easy to make solid contact every time.  Solid contact means optimized launch and spin on the ball every time. The right bounce allows you to strike the ball properly even if your technique isn’t perfect every time.


Indi Golf’s FLX Grind is our original bounce and sole configuration. The FLX Grind optimizes for each individual loft for maximum performance. With the lower lofts, 46 – 52 degrees, the bounce is configured to cut through the turf for full shots and not dig when being used for chip shots. The 54 and 56 degree wedges are designed with a slightly wider sole than the lower lofts to help propel shots out of bunkers but are still versatile from the fairway and around the greens. This bounce is great for chipping off of tight lies and deep rough. The 58 and 60 degree lofts are designed with a wide sole and relief in the heel and toe sections making it a great bunker wedge and very versatile around the greens making flop shots seem easy. The FLX Grind has Indi Golf’s ScoopBack, TractionFace, and LaunchControl technologies keeping it super forgiving, one of the highest spinning wedges golf, and easy to control.


New for this season is Indi Golf’s ATK Grind for players needing more bounce and turf forgiveness on open-face shots.The ATK Grind is designed with more heel, toe and trailing edge relief. This additional relief allows the player to open the face and maintain the same leading edge ground clearance yielding increased player confidence. The ATK Grind still has Indi Golf’s ScoopBack, TractionFace, and LaunchControl technologies maintaining Indi’s legendary forgiveness, spin, and control.

bounce and bunkers

Optimized sole width and bounce can be the difference between hitting consistently amazing bunker shots, and dreading being stranded in the desert. Bounce keeps the club head from digging and blasts the sand and ball forward enabling the ball to get out of the bunker and near the hole.
