Gap Wedge Recommendations

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

In the market for a Gap Wedge and just wanted to gauge opinions on what would be the best option.
 
My current iron set includes: PW (43 degrees) SW (55 degrees) and a LW/SW (58 degrees). I tend to use my 58 degree most of the time instead of my SW as I find it much easier to hit, both out of bunkers and on the fairway.

Looking for something in-between my PW and LW really and just wanted to see what people recommend. Something easy to hit from around 80-100 yards out without having to hit a 3/4 wedge shot and start guessing distances. Something around 50/52 degrees? And how necessary do you think it would be? 

Thanks!

If you don't like the 55, you might want to get a 53 and a 48 to keep consistent gaps. 52 or even 50 would probably leave too large of a gap between the PW and GW.

That's a VERY strong pitching wedge.....

 

What's the bounce on your 55* and 58* wedges?

 

Assuming they both have sufficient bounce, with that setup I'd look at closing your gaps a bit more.  I'd likely add both a 48* and a 52*.   I'd then either dump the 55* (if you're really in love with the 58*)  or get rid of the 58* and bend the 55* to 56* and get an added benefit of another degree of bounce in that wedge too.....

Get a 49 or 50 if you can find one. Or something like this. Ditch your SW especially if you like the 58. You PW is really vilest to a 9-iron so you could add two in the bag. You PW would then kind of be like a 10-iron and the 48 is more like a true PW loft, GW 53 & you can use the 58 as SW/LW.
43
48
53
58

Good luck.

I'd probably just get a 50degree or 52 degree wedge and call it good....

Since it sounds like your biggest concern is having proper gaps for your full swing pitches, I would echo what GeorgeShot stated... go with a 48 and 53.  That's probably the best resolution.
