  1. 1. How many wedges do you carry?

    • 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
      3
    • 3 - Very common set up through the 80's and 90's.
      7
    • 4 - Its good to have options
      18
    • 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.

anyone that carries a 2 iron or even 3 iron now and has more than 5 degrees gap between their PW and SW is just hurting themselves. I did the math on how many shots I hit with my 3 iron and 2 iron compared to 110-120 yards and it was an easy decision. Got a hybrid to cover the other two and stepped up my lofts to have 4 wedges...

60 54 50 46

9 iron is 42
8 38
7 34
6 30
5 26
4 22
hybrid 19
3 wood
driver

there are just too many shots in between 125 and 100 yards that you can't dial down the PW that much without losing accuracy and you need to pinpoint more with a PW than with a 3 iron.

I carry 4 wedges right now

TA5 PW (45)
588 GW (51)
CG10 or 588 SW (56)
CG10 LW (60)

My PW is strong so I really need the gap wedge. I never chip with my PW so my 51 is a very useful club for me around the green too. I added the 60 degree this year. I'm going to swap it out for a different 60 with less bounce. Perhaps go back to my 588 gunmetal. I agree, at least for me, that carrying an extra wedge is more beneficial than, say a 3 iron.

I carry three wedges:

48 - Callaway Forged +
54 - Callaway X-Tour
60 - Callaway X-Tour PM

This works out pretty well for me, a 48-53-58 would probably work about as well.

I've been on this forum for like 3 months, and I've seen this topic discussed about 5 different times in various forms. Do some searching and you'll find a number of threads on this.

I have 4 but usually only carry 3 of them. My Pitching Wedge, a 53 degree and a 56 degree (SW). I will sometimes change out the 56 for my 60 degree if I am playing a course with no sand traps.

I have 4, although I don't really count my PW as a wedge because I use it more like a 10 iron. Can't really do anything you would normally do with a wedge.

Just wondering... I see people with three or four, or even one. All I need are my two- 52 and 58.

Three. Pitching wedge that came with my irons (45), a 58* Vokey bent to 56, and a 60. The pitching wedge has no spin on pitch and chip shots, and I need a 51-something to fill the gap (I could hit my old 56 100 yards but I struggle to reach 90 with the Vokey - in fact, the Vokey's more trouble than it's worth, aside the usual problem of turning the cover of my balls into fuzzy chicken wire.)

At some point when I get the money, I'll ditch the 5 wood and have 4 wedges, instead.

I carry a Gap wedge, sand wedge & a lob wedge, but mustn't forget the most important of all...the foot wedge.

2 or 3, depending how you count. I count my 52* and 58* as wedges, but my pitching wedge - despite 'wedge' in the name - is really my 10 iron.

Just three here. I play courses that are long enough that I like to have a 3W (usually off the tee), a hybrid (long par threes, fairways, some tees), and a 3-iron (fairways, par threes).

I hate my 60°. I'm considering swapping it out again and coming back to my 3i.

I feel like I'm in an abusive relationship. The 60° is such an a**hole to me, once in a while (1/10 strokes!) I hit that GEM of a shot that keeps me coming back for more. I always come back for more.

I think the 3i, while I find it difficult to hit, at least I can always rely on it for low punches when my tee shot finds the other side of the tree-line, and I have to get outta jail and back into the fairway. So even if I don't use it for long shots, it still serves a purpose. The 60° is just plain ABUSIVE.

Sorry to jack. I have 52° (LOVE IT) a 56° (LOVE IT) and a 60° (HATE IT...no wait, LOVE IT...no, I HATE IT...)

I also have the PW that's part of my ISI set, 47°. I love that club too.

    • I tend to follow my surroundings and flow with the course (if I have played it before) and don't bother with how long I take to setup. If nothing is rushed, then I am not rushed. I don't sit in the car too long or take a large amount of time getting my gear ready. I judge accordingly, but I really don't like to be rushed. I pay my hard earned money to play just like the next person does. It doesn't take long to setup my equipment and put my shoes on. I am always reasonably well prepared before I even get to the course so if need be, I can be quick on the go. I believe it is all about respect to people and fellow golfers in general. Of course there are those that carry great disrespect for others and could give a rip about anything which usually bring challenges to what may be a good golf game.  Some weeks ago, me and a buddy played a course and there was a foursome that were in front of us at the first Tee that actually warmed up and stretched on the Tee box delaying those behind them! There were no less than two groups waiting behind us. After quite a wait and seeing this was not going to change, we decided to start on the 10 hole and while we drove the cart over to 10 (we could see #1 tee box from 10) and got set up on the tenth hole we could see they still had not finished. What is really bad is we tee'd up and drove our balls and two of them were still not finished!
    • One thing I will add is if your swing speed is 80-82 with a 6 iron, I doubt u hit it 196. Hit outside and check some more places for launch etc... but don’t do anything to the clubs yet.
    • I’m a believer in the arms being responsible for a lot of swing speed, but yes. It feels a lot less ‘movement’ was able to generate good power. However I began to think that my actual SS wasn’t really improving. It was the quality of strike. My conventional swing can be all over the face with an in to out and out to in path ( more likely out to in). With this swing I was almost always in to out and near the middle of the club face. So I think I was just hitting better shots. Again, JV would never provide any data from himself nor any students showing increases in SS.  I don’t have a problem with having a 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 swing. It’s the ‘10’ different that seemed ridiculous to me. I’ll never use a 4i to hit the ball 20yds.
    • i saw your post on Golf wrx from November 30.  You might have wanted to add that according to what you wrote there you bought the clubs already.

    • It probably takes me around 5 minutes from the time my car pulls in till I can be on the tee and ready to hit.  I never wear my golf shoes and drive.  Takes me a minute to wear the shoes, then about 2 to 3 minutes to get my cart and bag set up.  Then another minute or so to get all the stuff out of the bag that I need. However, I am always fairly quick on the course, and have never found myself to be the cause of latency in any group I am playing with. I like to get to the course at least 15 minutes before I have to tee off to give myself at least 5 minutes to warm up and stretch before I start playing.  I find it really makes a difference to my game.
