Amazing how a post becomes more relevant as time goes on, just upgraded my iron set after 10yrs to Cobra F9 Speed back's, to find my new PW is 44, I now need 4 extra wedges, GW 48, AW 52, SW 56 and LW 60, So 5 Wedges are now the normal, of course its all bullshit, the manufactures just increased the lofts and we left to fill the gap and the bottom end of the set.

PW, SW and 60 here.

I barely use my 60 degree wedge...I don't think I've used it once this year other than at the range.

I think you meant to say "decreased".

I have 45, 49, 52, 56.  I am not entirely satisfied with this setup, partly because I just do not consistently make solid contact with the 49.  But I have been getting much more confident with hitting the 56 degree sand wedge.  I may actually put the 60 back in the bag because my friends like courses that are shorter than what I would prefer.

 

Question: How confident would you be to chip with something like this?

I would be confident to hit a flop shot with that, without even opening the face.

I now have four wedges: my PW (don’t know the loft), then a 50 that I just put in the bag, then 54 and 58. The 50 and 54 are my money clubs, the 54 I already knew, but I hit some great shots with the 50 today.

I think I’d do well with a 76 degree wedge, although I tend to open the face just a hair with my wedges. I think if I do that with this club, the ball would hit me. Not ideal. And my coach doesn’t like 60 degree wedges, so he definitely wouldn’t approve of this. He’d probably be a bit amused though!

45° (PW), 50° (AW), 54°, and 60° is all I carry. I enjoy hitting 1/2 and 3/4 shots, dead handed shots, etc.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
