I hit my PING G20 Pitching wedge 125 - 130 yards. I hit my 56* Sand wedge 85 - 90 yards. I need something for those 90 - 110 shots. Any suggestions?
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
Something in the 50°-52° range. PING makes a matching gap wedge that goes with the G20s (it's the "U" wedge), but that should have come with the set I think (the G20s are sold as 4-UW sets normally). If you don't like that option, all the major wedge manufacturers have a gap wedge that will fill the gap nicely.
I hit my PW the same distance and also have a full set of G20 wedges - P thru L. You can get a Utility Wedge ("U") which fills the gap nicely. Just need to custom order, my G20 irons only came 5-PW so I ordered the other wedges separately. Incidentally, the Lob Wedge ("L") is a great club and very controllable for shorter distances. They make for a great set of wedges.
I'm a newbie, all my more experienced playing partners are staggered by the accuracy of the G20 wedges. Much more a reflection of the clubs than me...
I had about the same distance gap problem and added a gap wedge to my bag. Problem solved for the most part.
I decided to go the Cleveland route on my wedges because for some reason I didn't care for the I3 Blade SW. Once I got the Cleveland Black Pearl CG14 SW, I added a LW and now a AW (gap @ 52 deg). I love those clubs............very solid and great action.
My gap wedge is a Vokey 50. Been a great club for quite a while now. FWIW, my sand wedge and lob wedge are Mizunos. I say that to make the point that your wedges don't necessarily need to be the same manufacturer or line of wedges.
Make sure you pay attention to the bounce on the wedge. I think it's maybe the most important variable of wedges.
I have a set of jpx wedges as well - totally agree how good they are (and under-rated). They are a pretty perfect match to the JPX 800 and 800 HD irons. So much so, I took my CG16 wedges out of the bag. Also have the G20 5 iron through Lob (L) wedges - they are the perfect wedges for these irons and perform brilliantly. I guess where I come out is that I prefer to add the continuation wedges for the irons rather than adding different wedges to the iron set. Just seems a more natural progression in terms of distance and feel. Both Ping and Mizuno make great wedges that follow on exceptionally well from their GI and SGI iron sets.
Would be interested to hear if others mix and match with their GI/SGI irons (not intending to take the thread in another direction).
My setup is 43° (PW), 49°(GW), 54°(SW) and 58°(LW).
The yardages look off because these are what I use in the given range that I specified. The higher end is what I'm expecting from a regular grip, ball placement and "full" swing. The lower-end is what I can comfortably pull off without too much risk by choking down, or moving the ball placement.
