Re: How many wedges do you carry?

PW
CG10 52
588 56
Knight 64 for the bunkers and rough around the green. I feel like Phil with this club. Full swing, ball goes 30 yards, tops.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I am sticking with three but I just went to the Vokeys 54 and 60 spin milled and finally retired the faithful Cleveland 588s.

Tourspoon, pls share your impression between Vokeys and 588s. I've been using 53, 60 588s for sometime and considering a change.

Thanks

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I carry four: PW, GW, 56*Vokey and 60*Vokey.
My gap wedge hardly ever sees action, my Pings came 4-GW, tho, so it's in the bag. My wedge game is the best part of my game, take that away and I'm a 20 handicap.

Well, so far it has been positive. I am really noticing some more consistency in the bunkers since I am using the 54/10 set up versus the 588 56/14. I think there was just too much bounce for me. The 60 is the same specs 60/04 and it seems to float a little more in the sand, so I am getting used to that too. I am still getting a feel for the distances and worked at the range for an hour with this pair. I love the 54 for greenside chipping and have used the 60 for two delicate chips on really fast greens. The highlight shot was out of a fairway bunker from 100 yards to the pin and spinning it a few feet. The grooves definitely are sharper and the spin is more consistent. I thought the extra spin would be problematic but so far it has been predictable. My 588s served me well for 10+ years and it was time. I let you know in a month or so how they are working out.

They are:

60 - Cleveland CG-11

Since adding in the 56 and 60 degree wedges I have been much better around the greens.
How many total clubs do you carry... 14 is limit. My humble opinion is that when people carry over 14 they have changed the essence of the game. I always wonder... should I take out an iron and add another wedge. Now I play a PW, a gap 53* and a lob 60*. Would love to have another, but what to give up?

People just throwing 15 or 16 clubs in bag are lying to themselves, to the integrity of the game, and to life itself.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

Lost Ball carries a Sand Wedge and Pitching Wedge and that is all that is needed for a solid round

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I mainly use two low bounce wedges for everything from ~100 yards and in (52 & 58 - if loft needed, type of green, etc.). Exception being sand wedge for sand only (more bounce). The PW seems to be a full swing 10 iron for the most part (matches iron set in feel). I have better distance and direction control by limiting wedge selection and concentrating on perfecting half\quarter\small back swings. Less stress too. Just grab it and let it fly.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I want the gap between my wedges to be about 4 degrees. So there is not such a big "GAP" between my wedges and/or the rest of my irons.

PW 48 - Titleist 695 MB
AW 52 - Cleveland CG 10
SW 56 - Cleveland CG 10
LW 60 - Cleveland CG 10

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I carry only two,

Titleist 755 PW
Sonartec T-46 56°

as my PW is bend to 50° and the 9i is bend to 45° do I really play 3 wedges?

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

4:

Ping i/3 O-Size 47* PW
Titleist Vokey 52* GW
Mizuno MP T 56* SW
Titleist Vokey 58* LW

They work for me.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

Right now I use a 47*, 56*, and a 60* but I am looking to buy a 52* or 58*. I'm not really sure on what I would like to get yet.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

Only 2. PW, and SW. Getting a gap wedge soon (hopefully).
post #124 of 193

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I voted 2 but I guess I have 4 if you include my PW and AW that came with my iron set.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I carry the PW in my irons set Cleveland Hibore XLis, I carry a set of 3 CG14 wedges 52, 56 & 60 and I have been pretty happy messing around with this new Nickent 47 Putter/Pitcher thingie... I will reduce by at least one once I see what I really like the best but with new clubs and spring practice they are all in there...
