I have a set of Ping G25 irons which I purchased with 2 wedges, a 45 degree PW & 50 degree U. In the G25 line Ping offers a 54 SW & 58 LW.
What would you all recommend if I wanted to round out my selection?
I think it's important not to have a large gap between PW and the gap, my PW is 47 so I start the wedge set with 50 so theres no shot where one seems too close but the other too far. I followed that with 54 and 58. With the short game being so crucial, I agree with the theory that you want confidence that you have a wedge for all the short ranges and no large gaps in distance control.
I have a full set of G25 irons and use everyone of them, they are great.
The reason I went this way to keep the swing weight and look the same no other reason.
My son plays Vokey's my father in law plays Cleveland, if you like the G25's and they work for you then get them.
Sounds like a good 4-wedge system adding the 54 and 58 from Ping. Pretty sure my set has the 45 and 50 "A-Wedge" and I added a 54 and 58 Vokey to my set a couple of seasons back.
You can EASILY turn the 58* into whatever you want by simply opening the face. This is my 'go-to' wedge for most shots around the green. Need more loft for a lob? Open face. It's now a 64* wedge.
Add them to your set. You'll likely improve your short game with the extra tools.
If you have 45* through 58* from G25, they will be matched as far as feel and yardage gaps. If you are able to hit them well, it should work. Also, four G25 wedges will require less practice to coordinate than a mix of wedge models, or going with three wedges with, say, bigger loft/yardage gaps.
Early hint: If you're in a deep bunker, the 58* will be a better sand club than the 54*. Practice sand shots with both.
