x forged '08 47 PW ( may be wrong with the degree?)

X forged chrome 52 wedge

x forged vintage 56 degree with mack daddy grooves

x forged vintage 60 degree with mack daddy grooves and c grind sole.

 

 

120 pw

100 52 degree

85 and in, 56 degree

 

 

my sixty is for flops short side and any thing else i need to get up quick and down with spin. I use a nike one platinum '08 model and lets say im a digger of the ball so spinning it is no problem and watching back up is even better.

 

Im thinking of getting a 50 degree wedge to close the gap of my PW and 52 but have to take out a hybrid to do it but i only hit it maybe once a round if any so thats the club to move for me. I dunno 5 might be nuts but 4 is definately right to have, a high percentage of shots for the game of golf is 120 or in so u need more tools for more shots right ?

I use 4

 

47 PW Titleist 910 AP2

52 GW Vokey Custom Design TVD

56 SW Vokey Custom Design TVD

60 LW Vokey Custom Design TVD

 

The 52 was the last on i added and that was for the distance gap, i am happy with that decision. I did start using it when i have a chip close to the green but the flag is far away. The 56 is my go-to club, if i have to improvise i will usually go for it. the 60 i also really like, no fear of hitting flops with it, can be agressive and know it will produce

Golf is suppoused to be hard!

I play 4 wedges mostly because I haven't found a fairway wood I like. So currently I'm rolling with my PW, 52*, 56*, 60*

 

That is what I used to do, but then I dropped the GW, then i switched the 56 to a 54 to fill the yardage gap. I also put a 3 irons in the bag to get up to 14 clubs.

How many wedges you you guys play? I play a 47* PW, a 54* SW, and a 60* LW, but I hit 95% of chips/pitches with the LW, even sand shots. The SW is just to fill a yardage gap, it goes a solid 100 yards.

Four.

45* PW, 52* AW, 56* SW and 60* LW. I could easily dispose of the 52* wedge as I rarely use it. I generally use PW from 100 to 120, full shots, knock downs etc. Actually I have the ability to hit a variety of shots with all my irons. It comes in handy when playing in heavy winds.

Generally I play 2 wedges, 52* and 58* for around the greens. Recently, I've added a extra 61* with a custom grind to help generate a little more spin when needing to stop the ball quickly. So far I like having the third wedge, but we'll see if I keep it in the bag or not...

I now have 4 wedges... Used to play 3, but found situations (particularly bunker shots) where I realized I really needed a 4th wedge.

 

 

PW: 46*

GW: 50*

SW: 54*

LW: 58*

 

 

PW - 130 yards.

GW - 120 yards

SW - 110 yards

LW - 95 yards.

I tried around the middle of last year to switch to 48' 52' 58' from 48,52,56,60. I have need had so little success with a club switch. I couldn't do a thing right. It was weird. I felt like I was always taking a little bit off a club. Switched back and had my best round in 3 months. Coincedence, probably, but I havent messed with the gaps since.

I have a revolving WITB policy.

I just feel with the 48 52 58 combo that I keep it pretty simple. I had a hard time around the green and with only one club in the bag to pitch with, I got better. When I had 56 60, I just didn't know which to use and would hit quite a few bad shots.

I would imagine that this is more related to your comfort with the original set up than anything else. If you can hit a 52 or a 58, there's no reason you can't hit a 60 or 56. For me, I use my wedges as follows:

 

PW: Full shots, knockdowns, chips

52: Full shots & half shots (waist high, 9 o clock on the Pelz system)

56: Full shots, half shots, bunkers

60: Full shots, half shots, all pitches

 

This keeps things pretty simple for me. My 60 is one of my favorite clubs, I'm always happy reaching for it.

I personally play 3 wedges,

 

PW

SW (Both from my set of r7 irons)

LW (60* Vokey)

 

Tend to play full shots with PW and SW.

PW for low chips around the green, LW if I need a bit more bite or loft.

LW also used for mid range pitch shots e.g inside 50yards

 

Oh and I tend to use my lob wedge out of the sand!
