A guy who plays on the mini-tours practices out of our golf club. I had a chance to talk wedges with him. He said the long hitters usually carry 4 wedges to get more choices up close. As a medium hitter he carries only carry three. That way, he can get in another long club for the 220-yard range.

Pw 45
Gw 50
Sw 56
Lw 62
Only use the 62 for in, or over deep green side bunkers with little green to play with!
Then up to 4i
5w & 3w
Driver & putter = 14
I'm happy with my short game set up! But I'm considering a change in the long clubs!

PW: 46

SW: 54

LW: 60

 

I find that this combo is pretty versatile and I rarely feel the need to add another wedge. I do practice partial PWs enough so that I am comfortable in that 105-110 yard approach range.

I have 5!. Di11 PW 43* (really a 9i), 48*, 52*, 56*, 60* all Wilson Staff Tw9. Going to drop 52&56 for the stock Di11 SW (55*) and add a 3 hybrid i think....

I only count 2 as wedges -- specialty clubs -- the 55 and 60.

 

The 45 and 50 are just irons.

 

This labeling stuff is imho, irrelevant to my game. It's how you use the wedges and what they're meant to do.

With the way the iron sets are configured these days it is getting harder to not have 4 wedges.  I have a pitching wedge that is 45 degrees, as strong as the 9 iron  I had, and have a 50, 55 and 60.   I don't even carry a 5 iron right now because the new 6 is the same loft as the old 5.

I carry 3: 46* pitching, 54* sand, and a 60* lob. I have been toying with the idea of dumping my 3 iron and adding a 50* gap. Probably will end up going this route.

I carry 4 wedges. My PW and AW are strong though, 45* & 50* respectively. I use the 50* as most people use a PW. Then I've got a 56* SW that I rarely gets pulled out of the bag and a 60* that I use way too often.
I'm thinking of pulling the 56 and 60 for a 54* and a 58*. I don't know much about picking wedges, but I think I could keep myself out of a little trouble by going to the 58*. Then I could drop the 56* down to 54* which might give me a little more use out of that particular spot in my bag.
