Watching Bryson hit that scary 55-yard bunker shot to win the 2024 U. S. Open made all of our jaws drop in awe. His shot sailed accurately through the air, landed softly on the green, and settled within three feet.

this is a shot that requires practice and the right equipment. If you don’t have time to practice like Bryson does, then at least get yourself the right equipment, starting with a Performance One Wedge.

While it may not be the biggest or most popular name in golf, its design is cutting-edge and will help any mid-to-high handicapper get out of all bunkers and even from a variety of turf lies.

You can face short pitches from 30 to 70 yards just as confidently as Bryson, even if your shots aren’t quite U. S. Open-worthy.


I evaluated the ONE wedge for performance, and I love the result.

The sole is what I love most about this clubhead. Its width is described as a four-point bounce design so you can comfortably open the face without raising the leading edge too much, and still get good contact off thinner lies.

It’s very similar to the Vokey K Grind wedge but at a fraction of the price.

Another huge advantage amateur golfers get is with the groove design. They’re cut right to the edge of the toe and the heel, so even your off-center hits will have some spin and hold the back of the green without bouncing off.

However, many big manufacturers skip this step, either to stay true to traditional design or avoid the extra cost.

I don’t know about you, but if I can get some more help while staying within the rules, I’m willing to sacrifice a little bit of tradition. And before you ask, yes, this wedge is legal for any tournament. Anything from your club championship to a US Open qualifier.

My best tip for this wedge is not to be scared to swing with more authority. The lie angle, groove design, bounce structure, and loft cause shots to come off softer than what you might be used to with your regular irons. Those are designed with distance in mind, while the Performance 1 wedge is designed for feel and, well, performance, of course.

One key factor to note is that due to this attention to accuracy around the greens, this wedge lacks a bit of distance.

Short hitters may require a gap wedge to fill the yardage void between their pitching wedge and their performance 1 wedge. It does go a bit shorter than most other 56-degree wedges.

So, bring it to the range, take note of specific yardages with your 100 percent swing, 75 percent swing, 50 percent swing, and see how they compare with your old wedge.

Having said that, if you currently carry a 60-degree wedge, it may become redundant. The sole of the performance one wedge allows you to lay the face open comfortably to create floppy flop shots that sit right in their own pitch mark as soon as they hit green.

It may sound like this wedge does it all, and truthfully, it does a lot, but it really shines in the hands of mid to high handicappers who need a versatile club that will get them out of trouble, but still perform from the turf when you’re staring down a birdie or important par save.

There's a golf app from Performance One that comes with the ONE Wedge.

Be sure to utilize the app that comes with this wedge. With it, you can submit your swing for analysis by one of their short-game professionals to get you started on the right foot right from the beginning.

Thanks for watching. I’m Clint McCormick, resident golf professional here at (You can get the ONE Wedge here.)


The One Wedge creates floppy flop shots that sit in their own pitch mark as soon as they hit the green. The team at Performance One sent me a club for review, and I’m happy to recommend it for mid- to high-handicap golfers.
