Anybody carry 5 wedges?

Recommended Posts

Hey, my PW is currently 42 degrees. I currently carry 52,56,60. There such a big gap between the two I was wondering if anyone else plays 5 wedges. I currently carry a 3 hybrid but thinking about dumping it cause I can hit my 4 iron pretty close to it.

Carry whatever you need to fill the gap.  I played 5 for a while with a 44 degree PW, 48, 52, 54, 58.  In the end there was a lot of overlap and the gap between 3W and 4I became more problematic for me so I dropped the 52 and haven't had an issue since.

Do whatever works best. It's at that end of the bag that gapping becomes more important IMO. If it were me I'd be looking at a 46, 50, 54 & 58 to go with the 42° PW.

Yeah I don't play tournament golf so I carry a PW, 50, 52, 56, 60. I can get buy with less, but if I've got them, why not use them?

I just switched over to the PXG 0211DC irons and with the jacked lofts I added a set matched Gap Wedge.  So right now I am gaming set PXG 42* & 48* along with TaylorMade Hi Toe 50*, 54* & 58*.  I can probably drop the TaylorMade 50* as I pretty much only use that and the 48* for full shots, but sometimes like to pitch with it.

I have a similar gap in my bag.  I carry a 43* PW (set), and 50, 54, 58.  Oddly, the 50 covers the gap into the PW pretty well (I think I would replace the PW with a vokey if I could)... though I have debated on adding a 46, but don't have room in my bag with all my woods/hybrids 😆.    Maybe spreading the gaps a little with a 46, 52, 58 (6 degrees separation instead of 4)?  Ok, now you have me thinking....

I have PW (41*), AW (50* stock),  54*, and 58*

I had the AW bent to 48* and it evened out the gap I had. I stick the AW about 105-110 yds at this loft and it leaves a bout 10 or so yds to it's neighboring clubs.

I went the route because I was having trouble finding a 46*-ish wedge I like to add in.

When I played my set of Titleist AP3 irons the PW was at 43 deg and the set GW was 48.  I then played a 52, 56 & 60.

Took my 4 iron out of the bag to make room for the 5th wedge.

My current set of irons has a 46 deg PW and then I have a 50, 54 & 58.

I roll with 5
PW (45 - P790)
AW (50 - P790)
52/56/60 (RTX4)

When I got the P790s, the 4 iron overlapped my hybrid while creating a large gap between AW and 56 so it's a necessity.  I've thought about getting a driving iron or seeing the distances on a new hybrid and going 52/58, but I will most likely stick with this for the summer.
