Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I carry 4 wedges: 47*, 52*, 56* and 60*. I do not carry a pitching wedge. My pitching wedge was a 45* and I replaced that with the 47* so that there is less of a gap between that and my 52* wedge.

I have always had wedge dilemmas in that i can never decide to play four wedges at 46*,50*,54*,and 58* or just three at 48*,54*, and 58*. Of course the choice i make refelcts the course and conditions. but everytime i play four wedges i always miss my 2 iron, and when i put the 2 iron back in the bag it seems i always have the perfect shot for the now missing gap wedge. haha anyone else have similair problems?

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I carry 3 at tthe moment.

45* PW Cleveland Ta5
52* GW- lokking to replace it with something else
58*-SW/LW Titleist Vokey SM-08

I just recently got the vokey wedge used for about $45 US and I love it. It has good spin, not excessive, and is very easy to control. I am looking ot replace my GW but im not sure what loft to get to fill the gap. Im thinking either 51, 52 or 53 but I could just get a 52 and bend it to the loft i want. Any thoughts would be much apreciated and on the type of wedge

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

hi guys
i have 3 wedges (r7 pw and sw and cleverland cg14 black pearl 60*)
and from what i have heard from club pro's is that the more wedges you carry, generally the less good you are around the greans (when i say more wedges i mean 4,5 or even 6) . so rather better your approach shots then end up buying another lob wedge.

my ben hogen bag
driver: ping rapture regular shaft 10.5*
3 wood: ping G5 regular soft flex 15*
irons: taylormade r7 3-sw regular flex
lob wedge: cleverland cg14 blacker pearl 60*
putter: YES! cassie

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

48 degree PW

54.5 degree SW with 12 bounce


58 degree LW with 8 bounce

A gap wedge would be nice for me. I may swap out my 3iron and 4iron for a 4Hybrid and Gap Wedge. Sure would cover more ground.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

PW, 52º, 56º, 60º and 64º.

The 64º I rarely use, just bought it for experimenting. The rest I always carry with me. 56º and 60º I use around the green for high shots. For chipping I normally use 7i-9i, but sometimes need more air under the ball and use any wedge.

I'm not good enough to reach the green or within chipping distance most of the times, very often use my high-lofted wedges there. I don't see why I don't progress on the approach shots just because I got 4 wedges, I have few clubs for hitting long shots, I'm good with longer irons, a couple of hybrids and a wood.

I never try to end up 10 meters short of the green so I can wedge it onto it, but I'm not good enough to be there yet, that's why I love my wedges, definately my biggest shot saver on the course.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

FOUR:

Callaway X-20 Tour PW (46 deg)

Titleist Vokey Spin Milled:

52 deg
56 deg
60 deg

I got on ye' ole launch monitor and found that the 52 filled the gap perfectly...I was hitting it 10 - 15 yards shorter than the PW. Good thing I got on there because i was going to get the 50 to keep the 4 deg seperation. But its about where the ball goes, not the number on the club. I would make sure you swing them before you buy to see what the yardages are dont just go by the loft.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

52, 56, 60. 52 and 60 have low bounce. I use the56 primarily out of traps, but can use the others as well. The 60 is my go-to club for finesse shots around the green. Started using it a lot when I joined a club built in a flood plain that had all the greens elevated from 12 to 30 ft above grade to keep them out of flood waters. Interesting course and it really taught me how to hit a lob shot. It was either learn or shoot a million!

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I used to carry 3, but now i only carry a 54/8 and a 58/8. I am pretty much able to do everything i need to do from 110 yards and in with those two clubs.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

52 and a 56, I don't consider the PW a wedge anymore. I can hit my 52 100yards, so most of the time anything inside 100, I use the 52. Math is hard but with a 100 yard club it is easier to hit those 75 or 50 or 25 yard shots, 3/4 swing, 1/2 swing, 1/4 swing.

My friends always struggled with those types of shots and I could beat them because of my short game. Unfortunately they finally caught on and now they have found their "100 yard" club and do the same thing, time to find new friends.......

I used to carry a 2H, but I find the 4th wedge to be more useful than the 2H.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

That's the conclusion i usually come to, but dang... a 2h off the tee is so usefull sometimes...
