How do you guys have your wedges set up? I have been using 48-52-56-60 vokey sm4's for quite awhile. I had a fling with scor's for a bit, but I'm back to the vokeys. I never have thought of updating, because these sm4's still control the ball like they did in 2009.

 

Anyway... I'm thinking of trying to simplify and go 48-54-60. Am I crazy? I play more by feel and consider each club to cover a range of distances, and I think that I can still overlap with less clubs.

 

Anyone else doing this?

I have my lofts set at 52-56-60 and it works well for me.  All of them work in a variety of lies and situations and I have no plans to change it.

You need to ask yourself some questions before deciding.

 

Does going to a 3 wedge setup give you room for a club you need?

 

If not then there isn't a benefit.

 

If it adds a club you want at the top end. Then does having that club at the top let you shoot less than having an extra wedge?

 

I'm all for unconventional setups, but the conventional wisdom says more clubs from 150yds and in than 200yds+. So just ask yourself if having 3 wedges instead of 4 will help you shoot better scores. If yes then go for it. If no then stick with what you have

FWIW I play 45-50-54-58 wedges, all of them Scors. 45 replaces the PW from my set

The 48 is my pw. I use the 52 for most anything 100 yds or closer, even greenside chips. I'll flop with the 60 and use it in the sand more than the 56. I guess my point is, the 56 doesn't see much action, and maybe going with a 54 would smooth out my gaps. I guess I won't know until I try it.

 

No need for a longer club or anything like that - I also cart a 3/4 wood around that hasn't been used in over 20 rounds.

I play 46 50 54 58, works good for me.

Don't think I will be changing anytime soon.

Like another poster said, if it will help you at the top of your bag, go for it.

If not I would stand pat.

My wedges are 46, 51, 56. This works for my game and know how far each club will go for me. Wedges should be set up for your game and what works for you best. Nothing wrong with carrying 4 wedges.

My SCORs are 46, 50, 54, and 58.  I also have the 42 as my 9i.  The 54 and 58 are both used from sand, but the 58 is used much more around the greens.  I will either chip with the 50 or 58 depending on length of chip.  I rarely hit full shots with either the 54 or 58.

What are the bounce of your wedges? Does your 56 and 60 have similar amounts of bounce or are they different?

 

I've been going 48-52-56-60 myself and I've realized that with both my 56 and 60 being high bounce, I just use my 60 all around the greens including bunkers and haven't really used my 56 at all lately.

 

Maybe instead of going 48-54-60 right away, just drop the 56 and go 48-52-60 and see if you miss it. I am all for having as many scoring clubs as possible but I'm also a walker so I'm always looking for ways to save weight in my bag.

I use my PW (47*) for 100-125 and I have been using a 56* w. 14 bounce for everything else.

 

I carry a 52* but don't hit it very well (thinking about switching to a 50*) and only use it when I am right at 100 yds and a perfect lie.

50, 54, 58

full swing, 3/4, 1/2 and 1/4 gives me all the distances I need.

And I never got along with my 60 wedge. Find the 58 much easier to hit and consistent.

Without getting technical in any way - I play 48,52,56,60. (All Wishon) Pretty standard/basic.  This setup/gaping along with the head-design allows me to play effectively from all turfs and sands.

My PW is 44 so I went with the 48/52/56 in the RTX 3.0 to better match the gaps I had with 50/54/58.

honestly I only carry two wedges if you exclude my 46 degree pitching wedge, a 54 and 58 degree. They have dual grinds so I can play open closed or neutral real easily and that gives me a lot of options between those two alone. It hasn't hurt my scoring up to now so I haven't really felt the need to get an extra wedge but that doesn't mean I won't eventually.

I have been gaming the SCOR's 41*, 45*, 49*, 53* & 57*.  Then, I got the Cobra F6 irons with a sensational Gap Wedge 50*, so I modified to Cobra F6 45*, 50*, then SCOR 53*, 57*.  However, I like d the Cobra Gap Wedge so much that I ordered the Sand Wedge 55* with the same Matrix graphite shaft.  My new config will be:  Cobra F6 45*, 50*, 55* then I will take the extra club and put a 21* Hybrid in the bag.  I may go back to the SCOR wedges 9i won't ever count them out), but I just had to see if the Sand Wedge that matched the F6 irons is as great as the Gap Wedge....

I'm looking at a similar theory, going with pw, blending the gw and sw with one club, and lw. There was a time when I took the lw out because it wasn't behaving, and I survived. I currently have the 3w in time out as well... so I'd be looking at 12 clubs in the bag, but no sense toting 2 clubs that don't get used.

I have 50,54 and 58.  The 50 and 54 have relatively low bounce .08 and the 58 has 14 with a K Grind.  it has been fantastic out of the bunker and even with that high bounce I've used it on some short sided shots here I'm maybe 10 yards off the green and only have 10 feet or so of green to work with.

 

The 50 and 54 are very versatile on all sorts of lies.

While waiting for the Cobra F6 SW, I put a MizunoT11  56* wedge in my bag......It worked okay, I kinda missed the 53* that I took out.  Becausue I always used it for 70-80 yard full shots.

 

The Mizuno worked admirably as a temporary SW replacement.
