Here at Golfalot we've taken a look at all of the wedges we have tested this year, and picked out the best models that we'd recommend to add to your bag, so if you're looking to upgrade in the near future then you've come to the right place.

Best of Wedges 2020

Of course, before parting with your hard earned cash you should be looking to test and get fitted for any club you are interested in and wedges are no different, with plenty of fitting options available to ensure that you have the right bounce and grind settings to suit your game.

These are the products we think you should be looking at. In no particular order:

Titleist Vokey SM8 Wedge

Titleist Vokey SM8 Wedges

Released: 06/03/2020

RRP As Reviewed: £160

Quick Hit: The #1 Wedge in golf features new weight technologies and even more options for refinement and custom fitting.

The Tech: There are three main advancements ensuring that the SM8s take things further to help you get the most out of your short game: new centre of gravity placement (CG), refined sole and grind options, and 100% inspected spin milled grooves on the face.

Golfalot Says: "They look, feel and perform great and with the added grind and bounce there are so many options to suit your swing and conditions. I think you can tell I like these wedges - but as final point to prove their performance, at the end of testing I did a 5-ball, 15 yard chipping challenge, and holed my second chip. Enough said."

Callaway Mack Daddy CB Wedge

Callaway Mack Daddy CB Wedge

Released: 24/09/2020

RRP As Reviewed: £119

Quick Hit: Callaway provides many of the technologies of the Mack Daddy 5, but in a friendlier and more forgiving shape for golfers wanting that extra bit of confidence and forgiveness.

The Tech: Two separate sole grind options provide more consistency across the wedge set thanks to specific designs for full shots and shots around the green, whilst Callaway's JAWS wedges deliver excellent spin rates across all types of lies. A deep cavity back, slightly larger head and thicker topline inspires more confidence and ensures a better transition from an iron set into to the wedges.

Golfalot Says: "For golfers who struggle with the short game this is a simple, friendly option to help gain a bit more consistency around the greens and get rid of some of that fear when it comes to chipping, pitching and bunker shots."

Cleveland Smart Sole 4 Wedge

Cleveland Smart Sole 4 Wedge Review

Released: 15/02/2020

RRP As Reviewed: £129

Quick Hit: Ultimate forgiveness on offer for golfers who have short-game nightmares.

The Tech: This fourth iteration of the Smart Sole includes an Enhanced Three-Tiered Sole, with extra bounce added to the leading edge, which should stop golfers from digging into the ground before the ball. The Feel Balancing Technology has been improved by moving the CG closer to the clubface, which is said to improve feel and aid consistency. Finally, new premium 'aggressive milled' grooves generate more spin and are designed to take moisture and debris away from the face.

Golfalot Says: "Cleveland say that the Smart Sole 4 Wedges make life easier for golfers who struggle with their short game. The bottom line from this review - that is absolutely true."

Wilson Staff Model Wedge

Wilson Staff Model Wedge

Released: 01/2020

RRP As Reviewed: £109

Quick Hit: Fantastic looks and solid, consistent performance from a classic Wilson wedge.

The Tech: The Staff Model wedges have been designed in conjunction with Wilson Tour players, including major champions Padraig Harrington and Gary Woodland, to create a sleek, better-players look and softer feel around the green. This feel is produced via a soft-forged 8620 Carbon Steel construction, while machine-engraved score lines in the precision-milled face are said to have a higher density pattern, which provides more consistent contact with the ball and generates better spin and control.

Golfalot Says: "It looks great and performs very consistently, whilst also providing a little more forgiveness than you'd expect from a compact shape. It's at an excellent price point too, as much as £50 cheaper than other brands' wedge models."
