Luke Donald gives his thoughts on his own, as well as other professionals, wedge setup to the Golf Monthly team.

Luke Donald discusses his club choices and why his bag has seen very little change since the golfer started playing professionally.

The 5 time PGA Tour winner discusses how despite club change, his bounce setup and the lofts have repeatedly stayed the same over the years.

Donald also addresses the issue of bounce and why for him, it is not a key feature in his lob wedge.

Donald  points out the difference between his club selection compared to other professional players such as Phil Mickelson and Seve Ballesteros.
