  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.
