Four = 3 + PW

 

TItleist Vokey SM6 50f, 54m, 60m.  I carry one of each finish so not to grab the wrong one in a money game when I'm not thinking clearly.  The numeral 50 can look a lot like the numerals 60 when you're not paying attention.  And on a sidehill lie you may not notice the face angle like you would from an even lie.

 

I carry chrome, copper, black in the 50f, 54m, 60m respectively.

Three, not counting my AP2 Pitching Wedge (46 degrees). I have Hogan TK 53 and 57 degree, along with my Sandy Andy. The Sandy Andy has a huge bounce, making bunker play much more enjoyable, (unless there is no sand in the bunker) and I also use it on Donald Ross design greens, because the ball will stop and not roll back off or over the green.sandy andy.jpg

I will open this up with a personal comment and observation.

 

A lot of us older guys carry only 2 or 3 wedges because when we were learning the game we had usually 2 choices. A PW at anywhere from 48 to 50 and a sand wedge of 55 or 56. That was all we had to choose from.

 

Personally I carry only 3 on the old stuff usually I carry only 2.

On the front line stuff it depends on what set of Irons I have> If I am playing the 13 Callys my PW is jacked to 45 but I carry a 52 and 56 also

 

If gaming my Mac VIPs the PW is at 48 but I carry the same 52 and 56 because of different bounces. What is funny is that my Mac VIP 9 iron is the same loft as the Cally PW. Us older guys learned a lot of different shots by moving the face from open to closed and also delofting some by forward press

 

I have seen some guys in modern times carry 5 wedges and personally I do not see anything wrong with that. After all that is how they learned the game and they have adapted and learn to play with different equipment. Gotta do your own thing and play what works for you and your game

Those are some great old wedges very verseitile especially on old school courses with brick mason type sand in the bunkers. I grew up around Ross style courses so I know exactly what you are talking about

PW, AW, 52,56,60

I am in a love hate relationship with my 60*.


Just curious here, but aren't your AW and your 52 very close to the same loft?

I carry just two wedges, a 50* pitching wedge and a 56* Sand Wedge with 12* bounce. I use the SW everywhere around the green whether I'm in the rough or a bunker. I can open the face up and hit shots that a 60* or higher Lob Wedge can make so I don't feel I'm missing anything without having a LW in the bag.

My pitching wedge being the same as a modern gap wedge, is used for approach shots from tight lies and chipping from fringe/first cut around the green.

My short game has improved tremendously this year as I have been focusing on being consistent with just two clubs instead of having too many options which would probably lead me to indecisiveness.

So, after making the switch to one length through Cobra this year, I've been with 4 wedges. The F7's PW, GW, and SW, gapped at 45, 50, and 55 respectively. My word are they awesome. I'll probably be doing a full review of the set (coming soon to the review board!) but the wedges are just so point and go.

 

However, because of the fear I had chipping with the longer clubs I've kept by regular 60 degree Wilson Staff FG Tour wedge. It's got the tour grind and is around 2-2.5 inches shorter than my irons and other wedges.

 

As of late though, it's just not performing the way I want. I feel indecisive over the ball. One thing about it is that this was the first 60 degree wedge I ever had, so I never really used it before. The other thing is that I think I try and get too cute with it and with it being that low grind, low bounce, high loft wedge, too much going on upstairs equals disaster.

 

In all, I think I'll probably be getting a one length wedge to start next season since the year is almost up in the northeast and there doesn't seem to be that big of a need for it now. I still can chip with the 56 if I have to and get decent results. This also means I'll probably use it on full swings more too, and that'll only help the funky in-between shots.


What's in my Puma bag?

 

:nike-small: SQ 460, 10.5*, Aldila NV 65-S

I'm irrationally upset about the order you just listed your wedges in.

There is something to be said for this -I went 48,53,60 for a long time and really only used the 53/60 combo as wedges. It did eliminate confusion and being one of those older guys that Big Stu talked about I could handle the gap between the 53 and 60. However I'm liking the 52,56,60 set up. I just pretend that I don't have the 56 in the bag for my short game and use the same shots around the green as I did before but now I don't have to worry about the gap on full shots.

I'm certainly more effective with a full 56 from 82 yards than I was a part 53 and I'm way more effective with it than the ground ball, chunked, snap hooked or blocked three wood that I was sporting before I replaced it with the 56.

I guarantee that I could make a lower score going PW, 56 from 215 than 3 wood God only knows what next. :)
