I've been playing for about 5 years and started breaking 90 with some regularity this last season. I've been playing with no fairway woods or hybrids and random, mixed wedges (a 50 deg Wilson Staff gap, Nike 56 deg sandwedge). My irons are some older Callaway Big Berthas and they have the "i-brids" . .ie . .the 3, 4 and 5 iron have HUGE soles. I feel like I hit them ok - the 5 really well, the 4 pretty good and the 3 is worth a shot (probably around 50% mishits and only 5-10% really nice strikes).
I want to add a set of matched wedges (gap, sand, lob) AND get a 4 wood.
As far as needs in my game - I think I really need both. I need the 4wood for some tee shots, >200 yard par3's, second shots into par5's, etc. I'm getting around ok on my 2 wedges but I use them so much I feel like I'll see a benefit from matching clubs with appropriate lofts to fill out my set. Also, there are a lot of times I wish I had something other than my sandwedge to chip with.
I'm thinking to make one of these purchases relatively soon and the next around the middle of 2014 season. The question is - which should I get first?
