How many wedges are in your bag?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I have started to consider putting a 62* wedge in my bag. I currenlty have 4 wedges, 46* PW, 50* GW, 54* SW, 58* LW but my 3/4 LW goes 65 yards. I really don't like to hit 1/2 wedge shots because they are very difficult for me to pull off. Does anyone carry 5 wedges? Have you seen any benefit to it? What club did you take out to add the 5th wedge?

"Obviously my iron play is incredible, and when I get going I can get hot, but this course just fits my eye. The shaping of the holes, and just a couple of the doglegs, I'm able to shape shots."

I'm just the opposite of OP... I have a 48* pw, 54* sw, and 60* lw. Most of my wedge shots are partial swings and that's the way I like it!     Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

Actually this is incorrect the Staff C200 is 44 stock. Small but perhaps important difference. Also it's important to recognize that you change the bounce on your wedges when you bend them. At one

For me this is a very interesting topic as it's a part of my bag I'm still figuring it out and am constantly switching around. Currently I have my Ping i Iron 45* and 50* which aren't going anywhere

technically, yes......My C200's have PW44 and GW48, I have PMP's 52 56 60.....I don't see getting rid of any of them, I'd rather have more short game options, than an additional wood of some sort

I carry a vokey 52, 56, and 60 and then my PW from my Ping i set. I actually won't swing a wedge full except the PW. I only hit 3/4, 1/2 swing shots. The 60 I MIGHT use once in 8 rounds.

46, 51 vapor pro combo

Don't really like my vapor pro gap wedge, might shelf it and pickup a 52-10 md3 but then I'll have a 6 degree gap from PW. Really don't know what I'm going to do.

You can get an MD3 in 50*, and bend it to 51, this adds bounce, or buy a 52 and bend it to 51 and decrease the bounce.

My wedge lofts are: 50, 54, & 58 and of course my PW which I believe the loft is 46.

I don't count the PW as a "wedge". I roll with 2. 53° and 57°

Looking to add a 48-49° "pitching wedge" and a 61° wedge. I use the 57° exclusively for the odd shots anything 75 and in. Chipping, bunker, flops, runners... that way I only have to learn that crap with one club. The 61° will take some of that load when I get it, but I think if I had more than 3 wedges I'd get lost with what shots I can do with each.

 

I "can" pull off all of the same shots with the 53° but usually stick one for "crafted" shots, that way I know exactly what I will get each time.

 

I used to run with 52, 56, 60. But even then I got the best performance out of the 56 .

 

Edit: Perfect set up for me.

 

1. Driver 11.25° or 12° Strong 3

2. 3 wood 14° or 16° 1 iron/hybrid

3. 2 iron 18°

4. 3 iron 22°

5. 4 iron 26°

6. 5 iron 30°

7. 6 iron 34°

8. 7 iron 38°

9. 8 iron 42°

10. 46°

11. 50°

12. 54°

13. 58°

14. Putter

 

Those lofts are modern lofts for one club weaker. So basically just 3-9 iron with 4 wedges would be great.

 

I never use the 3 wood off the deck. It's basically Driver #2. I'm not going for Par 5's in 2. My 2 hybrid goes 235 carry. So if I can get a drive out there around 265-280 that would get me at around 515 in two shots.

For me this is a very interesting topic as it's a part of my bag I'm still figuring it out and am constantly switching around.

Currently I have my Ping i Iron 45* and 50* which aren't going anywhere as they feel great and work wonderfully. Then I'm carrying a 56* cobra tour trusty rusty. It's so far helped because I don't have as much indecision in club choice and I've just been adjusting my swing. So 85ish yards in I will use the 56 unless I want some roll out. 85+ to 120ish I'll use the 50*.

All that being said I could switch it all around to a 54/58 but for now I'll stick with what's working(ish)

I have my PW (rsi TP), a 54 and a 58 degree both of which are Mack Daddy's.

 

Never felt the need to add a 4th wedge never mind a 5th! Saying that I do have a 2 iron and I play Links golf (from Scotland) so very rarely actually use my wedges. More often than not I'm bumping a 7 iron through to PW. So a high lofted wedge selection would not be to my benefit.

 

I think a question like this would be very much dependent on where you play.

I like the idea of 50 and bending it to 51
