    • 0 - What's a wedge?
      0
    • 1 - I have my trusty Niblick and that's all I need.
      0
    • 2 - Doesn't matter which two, but you'd think it would be PW and SW
      4
    • 3 - Very common set up through the 80's and 90's.
      9
    • 4 - Its good to have options
      20
    • 5 - More options or is it because your PW is so delofted you had to stick in another gap wedge?
      3
    • 6 or more - If you answer this, you'd better explain why.

I carry the Kirkland wedge set (G,S,L) and the pitching wedge that came with my irons set.

The L wedge is my go-to wedge for around the green fringe, and anything around a 50 yard play - I love it.

It depends on whether you consider your PW from your iron set as a wedge. So I can answer this in 2 ways. 
 

PW (47°)AW (52°), 58°, 62° If I play my ZX7’s 

PW(45°), AW (50°), 54°, 60° if I play my ZX5s.

Which has been more lately.

I currently carry four wedges, all Callaway Jaws:

•46 degree that functions as my PW. Will probably end up bending it to 47 or 48 when I get my new irons.

•50 degree gap wedge. This is probably the least used of the four. 

•54 degree sand wedge. My go to wedge for anything 85 yards and in. 

•60 degree lob wedge. This is what I typically use when I’m shortsided or when I have to hit a pitch shot over a bunker. 

My PW I typically hit 120 and the gap wedge I hit 105. Not completely sure on the 54 and 60 because I rarely full swing either one.

Callaway Apex PW, AW

Vokey 54, 58

I'm thinking of dropping the 54 so I can have another choice in my long clubs. Not sure if that's a good idea or not

PW (45*), SW (55*) and LW (60*) but the reality is the SW and LW are for similar shots but from different turf and lie conditions.  My full length shots stop at the PW and only specialty shots (bunker, flop, pitch)

I don't follow this line of thought. Why would you not consider a club labeled and traditionally used as a "wedge" a wedge?  Is my "sand wedge" not to be considered a "wedge" either? 

By that logic I carry zero wedges just a "10-iron" and a Sarazen-design sand iron.  But to me I have two "wedges" sans the loft reference on the sole of modern "real" wedges.

In the olde days a PW was 50-51 degrees, and a 9 iron about 46. Now some PW from sets are < 46. That's the logic, not saying it's right or wrong.

Me I use my 47-pw, 52* gp (bent to 51*), and 56.  I practice with my 60 and 64 but rarely play with them.  For fun the other day I carried my 60* and had 2 nice flops with it, on a short 5700 yd course. Been practising with 60 out of the sand, I think most pro's are using their 60's out of the sand, so thought I'd see what I can do.  So far with my 60 though it cost me shots, my bad shots with it are worse than my good shots are good.

I carry my 718 AP3 P, a 718AP3 48 degree, a vokey 52 degree, an vokey 60 degree, and a POS 56 degree for rocky bunkers. Seems like a lot of wedges, but they do come in handy...
