Westwood using new wedge at Honda

By Jonathan Wall, PGATOUR.COM Equipment Insider

Lee Westwood opened the season with PING's Tour Gorge WS (wide sole) wedge in the bag, but following a practice round with Ian Poulter last week at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, the Englishman decided to make a change to his 60-degree wedge, putting a PING Tour Gorge TS (thin sole) version in play at the Honda Classic.

Looking for a wedge with less bounce and the ability to nip the ball on tight lies and get it in the air with ease, Westwood gave Poulter's Titleist Vokey Design wedge a try -- it had a similar grind to the Tour Gorge TS -- and liked the way the thinner sole performed.

While Westwood went to the TS in the 60-degree, the sole change wasn't an across-the-board switch, with the 54-degree PING Tour Gorge WS remaining in the bag.
