Re: How many wedges do you carry?

anyone that carries a 2 iron or even 3 iron now and has more than 5 degrees gap between their PW and SW is just hurting themselves. I did the math on how many shots I hit with my 3 iron and 2 iron compared to 110-120 yards and it was an easy decision. Got a hybrid to cover the other two and stepped up my lofts to have 4 wedges...

60 54 50 46

9 iron is 42
8 38
7 34
6 30
5 26
4 22
hybrid 19
3 wood
driver

there are just too many shots in between 125 and 100 yards that you can't dial down the PW that much without losing accuracy and you need to pinpoint more with a PW than with a 3 iron.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I carry 4 wedges right now

TA5 PW (45)
588 GW (51)
CG10 or 588 SW (56)
CG10 LW (60)

My PW is strong so I really need the gap wedge. I never chip with my PW so my 51 is a very useful club for me around the green too. I added the 60 degree this year. I'm going to swap it out for a different 60 with less bounce. Perhaps go back to my 588 gunmetal. I agree, at least for me, that carrying an extra wedge is more beneficial than, say a 3 iron.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I carry three wedges:

48 - Callaway Forged +
54 - Callaway X-Tour
60 - Callaway X-Tour PM

This works out pretty well for me, a 48-53-58 would probably work about as well.

I am in complete agreement with this. I carry four wedges for the same reason. I rarely find myself with 230 yard shots that are effected by the gap between my 3-Hybrid and 3-Wood. However, I have a ton of shots from 125 or less and having four wedges allows me to take more "full" swings.

Yes, I think you have a good point about having something more than a 4 degree difference between the pitching and sand wedge. There are times when I get between the two clubs on the fairway and have to ease up on a pitching wedge or try to hit the sand wedge harder. I try to avoid that yardage but will hit it on occasion. It would be nice to take a normal swing with another club instead. I think I can get rid of a hybrid and put in a 4th wedge, which in my case would mean having a 48-52-56-60 set of wedges.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

i just bought a vokey 9/10 condition for only 50 bucks! It's my only wedge so far and I love it. I think I'll get a matching 60 degree too!

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I carry 3 wedges plus the PW at the moment. They are Adams Tom Watson 52, 56 & 60. Have been thinking of dropping back to 2 and getting 54 & 58 loft wedges.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I'm getting a fourth today. I have a PW at 45, and the others are 56 and 60. Although I'm not bad at making a 3/4 wedge shot, I'd still prefer to use a full swing. And, I almost never use my 5 wood, since the distance gap between that and my 3 iron is pretty much zero.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I have 1 wedge atm, a 54 degree. I am looking around to see if I can get a 60 degree for close chipping.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

4 wedges

PW Taylor Made RAC MB
53* Cleveland Tour Action 588 Chrome
56* Cleveland Tour Action 588 BuCu
60* Cleveland Tour Action 588 Gunmetal

I'm not picky when it comes to finishes, but I love 588s.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

Got the fourth one. I was looking for a Titleist, but they had been sold out entirely - so I got another Mizuno. Wedges with low bounce are really hard to come by - I am learning this one the hard way. Took 15 minutes of looking at wedges to find one.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I used to have one wedge which was a 58* but I binned the 58* and went for a 56* and a 60*. Both get me close to the hole.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

Theres really no need to carry 4 wedges, unless your a really good golfer IMO. I'm by no means a great short game player, but I can alter differnt things and hit the same club many differnt distances. If I were you I'd get a sand first, maybe a 58 (thats what I use and it doubles as a LW IMO).

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

I have a 48, 54, and a 58 degree wedges.

Re: How many wedges do you carry?

48 (PW), 52 (GW), 56 (SW)
Lob wedge does in or out depending on conditions and how I'm hitting it.
