Sand Wedges

The Castaway

The Castaway

Not a great club to start and because it's an epic, it's more than likely you'll never want to play this one. And by the time you manage to max it out, there will be a lot of other clubs that will be better.

The Desert Storm

The Desert Storm

Probably the first sand wedge you'll unlock and it's too bad because it's one of the worst clubs in the game. It never really gets good so just hang on and suffer through until you can unlock something better.

The Malibu

The Malibu

The Malibu is one of the two best sand wedges in the game and you should count on using it for 95% of your games. The distance isn't great but the accuracy makes it very good at getting you out of trouble around the green and the ball guide is hard to argue with. Lack of spin can be frustrating at times but overall you'll like it more than you hate it.

The Sahara

The Sahara

Given how fast the needle moves when you're in the sand, accuracy is a real import stat. The Sahara has very little of it so this is not a popular club. The distance looks nice but more often than not, you'll want the accuracy instead.

The Sand Lizard

The Sand Lizard

The Sand Lizard is an interesting club because it's the only other real popular option than the Malibu (until you level up your Spitfire). It ticks all the boxes except for ball guide, which will be a bigger deal to some players than others.

Not a good choice. Even maxed out, this epic only sports accuracy of 69. At that point your Malibu will almost certainly be a better club. Back spin is not useful for a sand wedge so unlock it and move along.

When you're old and gray and manage to max the Spitfire, you'll have the best sand wedge in the game. Until then, it will be a situational comparison between it and The Malibu as to which is better. Come tournament time, when a long hole has lots of bunker trouble along the fairway, it may be worth packing this club so you can still reach the green if you find the trap.
