# Wedge dilemma.

## 5 posts in this topic

Hi All,

My current wedge setup is PW, 50 and 53 degree.  I have a 56 and 60 on its way and am wondering if it would be best to take the 50 or 53 out of the bag.  I absolutely love my 53 degree but am afraid that puts a little too much of a gap between my PW (45degree) and my 53 degree GW.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Bruce

The difference between the 53 and the 56 will likely be less than 10 yards.  I'd drop the 53.

I'd go 45, 50, 55, 60

I second that - I have a similar setup but I use 47, 50, 54, 60. My 54 has 12° bounce and my 60 has 6° bounce.

If the 45* PW is from your iron set, and the wedges are from a specialty model of wedges, you need to determine the distance gap + between the PW and the 50*.

+ See related thread on how shaft length influences distance between wedges: http://thesandtrap.com/t/59567/wedge-distance#post_728929

Next figure out the distance gap between the different wedges within the specialty model.

If the specialty wedges only have 1/4" length difference in shafts, this will reduce the yardage gap between the 50* and 56*.

If you can get fairly even distance gaps between the specialty wedges, it's not the end of the world if the PW and the GW fall 14 yards apart - as long as you know it.

With a little bending and shaft length tweaking, you might work your way toward 45, 49, 53 and 57. (again, see related post shown above)

• I nominate @boogielicious  It's fits the part of most golfers. I often comment to my buddies "I can make bogey with the best"
and "anybody can make a twenty-footer to save bogey"
• It would be more compelling if it was open to anything golf related. There is only so much you can do to a driver within the rules of golf. Let somebody who has an idea for a better golf anything come on and try and market the product. I saw a tee made from saw dust, grass seed and fertilizer. If you left it on the tee box it would break down from rain and help regrow the area. IIRC it was too fragile and too expensive, but it shows people can take a simple device like a tee and make a cool improvement.
• Finally birdied the long, 515 yd 7th hole on my local. Even sweeter was sinking the 30 foot putt. Alone, of course, but did a small happy dance.
• ^^^^^^ Great!!!
• I would look at getting a better sand wedge and hold off on the 60 for now.  I found it hard to be very consistent with a 60 and I know some of the people I play with aren't real confident with their 60s either.
