How many different wedges do you have and which do you use the most often? Just curious as there are some good choices to choose from and wedges are often used. I have a PW SW and GP, but I definately use my SW the most, its so handy

I use my sand wedge (56 deg CG11) probably more than any other club, other than my putter. I do have a 52 deg GW, but it is not a cavity back and I often his mit with it, and as a result my SW usually ends up going further and straighter (not to mention with more confidence).

Fringe shots: 52 degree GW to keep it low
Chip shots: 56 degree SW to throw it up with a little spin to stop it closer
pitch shots: used to use my PW, but now I'm using this "no wrist" Sand Wedge shot and I'm spinning the ball like crazy like this cuz im catching the ball "real clean"..works cool.

So, I'd say my SW.

that sounds great. care to tell me how it's done. i have a hard time getting spin with my pw also and would like to try this out.

btw, i use my pw the most. my sw is only used in the sand. i also sometimes use a 7 iron to run some up from the fringe. depends on my mood.

I use all my wedges extensively depending on the distance and situations.

PW (47 degrees) - Mostly used for green side chipping, up slope chipping/pitching, 70-85 meters pitch to attack the pin. Full swing to reach 110-120 meters.

SW/GW (52-08 degrees) - Used for 60-75 meter pitch range. Sand bunker, when the pin is further away from the bunker. Also used for down hill chipping/pitching depending on the slope.

SW/LW (58-08 degrees) - Used for short lob around 30 meters with open face, normal pitch from 45-60 meters range, when the pin is closer to the bunker. Sometimes over trees. Also used for down hill chipping/pitching depending on the slope.

When I am in the fringe I generally don't use a wedge. I use something between a 7 and 9 iron, keeping the ball low and acting more like a putt.

When I am farther off the green it really depends on the situation. If there isn't much green to work with and have to go over a bunker I may take out the 60 and flop it. If I have to get it to the back of the green I may use my 56 degree.

But all in all, I would say I use my 56 degree wedge the most for chipping.

I use my 60* for pretty much everything inside of 70 yards, but it usually depends on the lie and condition of the course. It's my primary chipping wedge, but then again, I've spent countless hours working on various different shots and distance control.....usually not the thing that lets me down...

I use my 60* for anything really inside of 80 yards. If i have a lot of pin to work with i'll use my 56* or 52*. I am starting the process of switching to using my 56* more often though because i've been chunking to many lob wedge shots.

90-100 yards, I use my PW (47°)
80 yards or when I must clear a hazard, GW (52°)
60-70 yards or out of a bunker, SW (56°)
Inside 60 yards, LW (60°)

I'd say my "go-to" club is the 52° because I usually don't have to worry about getting the ball up high, and it's always far enough, but with the 60° I've come up short countless times (still getting used to it).

I don't know what I would do without my 56* sand wedge. It is by far my favorite club in the bag. I use it on the green side rough all the way to 110 yards. My favorite distance is 60 yards. A local pro taught me to have a slight open stance with the ball off my front toe. Hands even with the club head. I never break my wrist throughout the shot. In the last 3 weeks, I have chipped in twice from within 20 yards, chipped in once from 60 yards, hit the pin twice from 60 yards. I really like the shot.

Around the green I prefer to play a shot that is similar to a bump and run with a little more flight on the front end, hence I use my Gap Wedge the most.

For full shots I <3 full Lob Wedge.

I use my 52* gap wedge for most anything inside of 100 yards, unless I have very little green to work with, or I'm in fluffy sand--in both cases I'll use my 58* sand/lob. Makes the choices easy.

Unless a situation warrants it (high wind, overhanging trees), I pretty much always use my 60 within 80 yards. Sometimes I'll use a pitching wedge if I have some green to work with, but the 60 is the only thing I can stop on a green next to a tight pin. I can use it out of almost anything - cabbage, hardpan, sand, without much trouble.

The gap is the most usefull club in the bag. Full shots, half shots, chips, flops and spinners oh my. The 60 is the pretty girl that wants nothing to do with you so leave it alone and your feeling won't be hurt.
