I can't either. But my SW sucks. I took it out of my bag lol

 

On a full swing, my 52 goes 112 exactly. So I just swing that 12 yards less. :D

Remember that people have different clubs.  I call my 54* wedge my SW.  Others might have a 52* or 56*

And mine is a 55, I can see how it can be confusing to just say "SW".

Maybe bplewis has a 51* and he's just a whimp

A little over a half pitching wedge. I can hit my 56 100 yards, but the pitching wedge shot is so more consistent. I used hit my 50 degree when I was between 90-110, but I like the PW more.

lol.

 

My SW is 56*.  Honestly I used to use my 52* as a full swing for anything from 95-110 or so.  But lately I'm just as likely to hit it chunky, or--because I flip at the ball (see my sig)--it only goes 90 and I end up in the front bunker hoping to save par when I was hoping for birdie.  So lately I've been hitting feel shots with my PW (47*).  100-110 yards or so is just about my worst distance (next would be 215-225), so I try and avoid it as much as possible.

I think my swing is de-lofting my clubs these days, 58 degree for a 100 yard shot...no roll. Or a little 53 degree wedge, but then I risk taking it too far. I need a 56.

Full grip smooth swing 56* Vokey

OK unfortunately I found that my sw actually is longer than 100 tonight in league. Flew it 110 to a rock hard green no chance at stopping it.

Today I was playing so poorly that if I was 100 yards away I just hit a long putt like stroke with a 5 iron. Was working better than anything else. :/

Oh nice. Yeah again today I tried hitting a 105 yard shot with my 52 and came up short just because I don't give it a full swing by default. Should've known better lol.

3/4 swing 54* Vokey.  choke down and i keep it low.  bounces once and checks.

post #139 of 267

Almost full gap wedge.  High.

post #140 of 267

I'm at full sweeper swing  with my 52 vokey KBS wedge flex, same for my 50 deg 588 w NS 950, med bounce... I'd be at full power swing with my 56 SM4 vokey with KBS tour shaft, hi bounce. I had this shot last night. i was using an older 250.08 vokey low bounce,TTDG wedge flex, full power swing and did 98 yards...missed the 6 foot putt....arrggghhh!

Full 56.

 

If into the wind or uphill I'll step on it a little. 

If wind behind or downhill I'll take a smidge off.

post #142 of 267

My "go-to" shot in that situation is a low punch three quarter pitching wedge.

I tried hitting my 56 on a 100yd shot yesterday, tried about 5 times and I just couldn't make it there. Furthest I got it was around 80.
