What is everyone’s wedge setup

Recommended Posts

I play 4 wedges.  The stock TaylorMade P790 PW and I have the TaylorMade MG3 Hi Toe 52-56-60 wedges. These are the best wedges I’ve ever hit.  So good!  My opinion!!!

I play my irons down to AW, which I think is 49 degrees.  After that I have 54/58 CBX Zipcore wedges. I must be in the minority, because use all of my wedges for full swings.

I've always had 2 or 3 Maltby wedges in my bag for a several years now.   I just switched to a set of Maltby PTM irons, so I'm trying out the gap wedge....not sure how I'll like the 48 * gap wedge....may use it for full swings more than chipping (we'll have to see how it goes).   For most chips I use the Maltby M-series 52* (bent to 54) and 56* (bent to 58).   Bending them also increased the bounce by 2*, which I find helps me.   I've even had some success lately with the 56 out of traps (where I need all the help I can get!!).

I just got fitted for wedges by Titleist 10 days ago. I’m getting three new Vokeys 48* F grind, 54* D grind and 60* D grind. The set up that I had before was very similar. It had the same lofts, but the 60 was an M grind that I liked to use around the green. Through some blind testing, we decided the D grind was the best option. Also, we changed the shafts from the stock DG S200 to KBS 120. I typically swing these 80% at most to cover anything under 120yds.

This past spring, I purchased JPX923 HM irons, 6i-GW (48*).  I chose not to include the 54* SW as I did full and partial swings with my very only Ping G15 PW (45), UW (50*) and SW (54*).  My feeling was the gap between 48* and 54* with the JPXs seemed to big.  Once I received the JPXs I spent a couple weeks getting a feel for distance, etc.  With the GW my full swing is about 105, maybe a few yards more, with really good spin/stopping power. 

I was agnostic between Titliest, Cleveland, and Callaway wedges.  After receiving the JPXs, my club announced a Cleveland/Srixon fitting day so I signed up.  Intuitively, I was thinking 52* and 56*.  I have a very old 58* low bounce that I use green side and bunkers with a thin layer of loose sand, which I plan to still carry.

I wanted the 52 and 56 for full and 3/4 (actually I’m more 80% with tempo) swing shots, plus the 56 for  a variety of shorter shots and maybe replace the 58, but that’s not necessary. During the fitting, he settled on the RTX6 with a Recoil 760 F2 shaft.  At that time, I was getting about 90-95 yds with the 52 and 80ish with the 56.  I received  them last week and had one practice session and was around 95-100ish with the 52.  

On Thurs, I played 9 holes.  On hole 2, I hit a great drive and had about 55 to the pin, and hit the 56 with partial swing to about 5 ft.  The ball landed, and stuck. We rushed to get an earlier TT so skipped putting warm up and lipped out the birdie putt. 

On the Par 3 3rd hole, I hit my JPX PW to about 6’.  I get really good spin with this club and it just stopped, and again just missed the birdie putt.

On hole 6, I did a pull draw and was left off the green by a few feet, about 30’ from the pin.  I used the 56* with a 4 o’clock to about 2’ and made the par putt. It has a 10* bounce and feels very versatile.

Hole 8 par 3, hit the GW to about 10’ and made the birdie.

Hole 9 is a tough par 5 that always plays long. Hit a good drive, then a great second with my new Ping G430Max 4/5w leaving 59 yds to the pin (elated as I’m usually 130-140 away).  Hit my 56* with my partial swing to 18”.  

Bottom line - live the RTX6.  They blend really well in terms of feel compared to my new JPXs.  Was initially concerned with the wedges being F2 while my irons are Recoil 460 F3, but in comparing the weight and torque, on paper they looked like a good match. In my hands, they are proving that right. What I really like is the precision I’m getting with the RTX6s. 

I still need some range sessions to really get the yardages figured out, but initially I’m pretty close.

I game the stock set ZX5 PW/45 and AW/50, along with a PING Glide 2.0 56/12.  I've kind of fallen in love with the AW and probably use it more than I should (in lieu of the PING), but until it's broke, I won't fix it. 🙂  I did use the 56 today on a really steep uphill lie, to a pin location right on the edge of the green, about 15' above me. Threw it straight up and it sat right next to the hole.  That might move me to grab it more often 😆.

Playing Srixon Z585s.  I technically have 4 wedges, but PW is at 44 degrees.  Its an iron as far as I'm concerned. 

From there I go purpose built wedges with RTX Zipcore 46 & 50 Mid's and a Mizuno T7 55/9 that will probably have the grooves worn smooth before I pull it out of the bag -- I can play any kind of greenside or bunker shot with it.   Higher lofts just aren't necessary (or a good idea💀) for my game.

I use the gap wedge that came with my set. 

I have 54 and 58 jaws raw that I was fit for.
I own the 50 jaws raw but found that the gap wedge that is in my set is much better since 80% of the time I'm using it for full swings.

I game five wedges, so I do catch some s***, but it works for me as each wedge has a specific job, with the 56 being used the most creatively:

Vokey SM8 60 degree K grind, Zodia KM Tour US Spec 56 and 52 degree, Vokey SM6 48 degree, and finally a Titleist TS 100S 44 degree. Last, they are all the same length at 36.5" across the board.

I carry a PW, SW,60, & 65. Not sure why I carry the 65. It nis my wonder wedge, I wonder where it is going this time. I am in need of new wedge set so this topic is of real interest to me. I am most likely going to go to Sub70 and get fitted for the correct wedges.

My favored iron set has a 49 degree pitching wedge, hence I use a 54 degree SW, and a 60 degree lob wedge. If I change to another of my iron sets, 47 degree PW, 50 degree GW, 54 SW, 60 lob. This month when greens are baked concrete I have 62 lw, a couple of 64's, and a 68. And one of my 56s has a lot of relief from when the bunkers had no sand. I believe I am ready for most any course conditions with my wedges. I do have to chose a top end mix if I add any wedges.

I have JPX921 Forged set wedges, PW (44º) and GW (48º). And then Ping Glide 4.0 in 52º and 56º. I have never found the need to have any higher lofted wedge than a 56. It works pretty well for me.
