The Square Strike Wedge simplifies the short game for golfers that really struggle with getting their chip shots close to the hole. The Square Strike Wedge is bold in both claims and appearance and we wanted to know if it could actually help anyone play better golf.

Design and Technology

The Square Strike Wedge is an innovative golf club wedge designed to help golfers with their short game. This all-in-one chipper allows golfers to get more forgiveness through the turf thanks to a larger sole radius. The Square Strike Wedge has been created with a 68 degree lie angle making it easier to swing like a putter for more consistent shots in and around the greens.

As is the case with infomercial-types of golf clubs like the Square Strike Wedge, I was skeptical at best. This wedge looks like a chipper and honestly is not something I could ever see myself using. However, the Square Strike Wedge has been shown to be an effective tool for golfers with low swing speeds and for players that consistently struggle with chunking their chip shots around the green. I do believe that the Square Strike Wedge can be beneficial to several groups of golfers that are just looking for a way to get up and down more often and have some more fun on the course.

PROS

  • Waterproof pockets keep your most valuable possessions protected no matter the weather.
  • Array of different colors give everyone something to choose from.

CONS

  • Not ideal for golfers that like to walk.
  • Bag does not come with carrying straps.
  • Shipping times might vary depending on demand and inventory levels.

Our Experience

The Square Strike wedge is designed to help golfers chip and pitch with a simple putting motion. It has an unconventional rectangular face shape and extremely upright lie angle that puts you in an unusual address position.


Despite its unusual looks, the Square Strike produces a soft, pleasant feel and muted impact sound. However, there is virtually no feedback on whether you've struck the ball well.


In terms of performance, the Square Strike works as advertised. Its high swing weight from the heavy sole and toe makes it feel like the club is pulling itself through the swing, which can help players who tend to get handsy or have the chipping yips. The weight in the sole also helps get the ball airborne easily.


The sole has a lot of bounce, so fat shots will still advance the ball rather than leave a deep divot. However, the Square Strike is not a versatile short game tool - it's not meant for flop shots, hooded bump-and-runs, or flighted shots. It's designed to simplify chipping for players struggling around the greens.


One reviewer found the Square Strike skinny grip felt too much like a "noodle on steroids" for their big hands, so they planned to change it. Overall, the Square Strike seems to be a unique wedge that can help simplify chipping for some players, but it has limitations compared to a traditional wedge.

The Square Strike is great for golfers looking to simplify their short games and take some of the complexity out of approach shots. If you are a golfer that constantly finds themselves chunking or fatting chip shots, then the enlarged sole of the Square Strike Wedge may be for you. 


Ultimately, I would encourage most golfers to use a full set of traditional wedges as the versatility of those wedges will serve them better once they are more comfortable with them. However, for those that simply want to show up and play, the Square Strike Wedge may be the perfect option.
