Re: What degree wedges should I carryEssentially you are currently carrying four wedges but in an improper setup....what you currently have is a pw, sw (56) and two lob wedges (58 and 60).
Your best bet has already been sugested: Pick up a Gap Wedge (52) and ditch the 58.
Another thing to be aware of is the loft of your PW. The degree gaps from your PW through LW should be 4 to 5 degree gaps to provide consistent distance between clubs. So, if your PW is 48* you can then go 52, 56 and 60 for even 4* gaps.
Some iron lines are now going stronger. for example: I play 2009 Burner irons which have a 45* PW. So my wedge setup is 45 (pw), 50 (gw), 55 (sw) and 60 (lw) for even 5* gaps between all wedges.
On average, two degrees equals about five yards so 4* gaps should give you about 10 yards between wedges where 5* gaps will give you about 12 to 15 yards between each: THIS IS APPROXIMATE AND VARIES SLIGHTLY FROM PLAYER TO PLAYER AND CLUB LINE TO CLUB LINE.
Bottom line is to find out the loft of your current PW and configure your
