I have a i20 PW 46 degrees and I am looking to get a vokey PW. I currently have vokey 54 and 58. I hit the 58 about 85 yards and the 54 about 105. What degree of vokey PW should I get, 46, 47, 48? If 47 should I bend a 46 or 48? Thanks Mack

What degree is your 9 iron?

If you have room in the bag I would get a 50* and keep the I20 PW, unless you don't like that wedge in which case you'll need to answer the 9i question. 8* is a pretty big gap. I'd probably go 48* to try and tighten up those gaps.

Welcome to the forum!

You're looking to replace your current PW with the Vokey?

While you could split the difference with a 48*, I think 6* is too big of a gap between your the PW and what I assume is the 42* 9-iron as well as the 54* SW.

If your current 46* wedge is working for you, I'd keep that the PW at 46* and consider making room for a 50* gap wedge in there to close.......well, the gap, between the PW and your 54* SW.

My .02 worth.

+1 on David's comments.  Your numbers are exactly the same as mine including yardage.  My PW is 46 goes about 120-125.  My 54 is ~100 -105, so I have a gap wedge at 50 deg for 110-115.  This lets me do full swings for those distances.  I use the 58 for 85 and down.

My 9 is 41 degrees.

I am looking to replace it with a vokey so I can use it around the greens more. My 9 iron is 41 degrees and if it still works I would like to only have 3 wedges. So should I get a 48 or 46 vokey or bend one to 47 degrees? I also see that ping has a 47 degree. I would consider the ping wedge also.

Why do you think that a Vokey wedge would be more useful around the green than what you have now?

My guess is because its tough to open the face on an i20 PW.

+ (whatever number it's up to now) on the option of adding a 50 in between the PW you already have and the 54.  Check out my signature ... I basically have exactly what everybody is recommending for you.  (my PW is 46.5 and my U is 50)  However, I don't really use it around the greens anyway.  And because my 50 UW is also an i20, I don't use it around the greens much either.

But why would I need to?  The 54.5 pretty much takes care of all jobs around the green ... I hardly use the 59 anymore.  Just for short-sided pitches and short bunker shots.  The 54.5 is verrrrrrry useful for me. :)

However, if you insist on replacing the PW with a different wedge, I'd say you get another 46 AND a 50.  41 to 47 or 48 to 54 is a couple of really big gaps you don't need that close to the hole.  Dump a 4 wood or a hybrid if you have to. :)

It is the same as my other wedges.

The vokey PW even bent to 46 will be way heavier and you won't be able to hit is as far on full shots. I would keep it and get a 50, or a 52, or a 56 vokey and use that around the greens.  The more bounce the better generally I think.

I guess..... but he has higher lofted wedges in the bag. I still say, just add a 50* gap wedge and you're done.

That's what I say too. I never use my PW for anything but full shots. I have NEVER used it to actually hit a pitch shot. Your 54 and 58 are perfect for around the green and adding a 50 will fill that hole in your wedge set up.

Thanks I think that's what I'll probably do and keep the PW.

You ain't Rory.

• My first question is . Did you do all three exercises and how did you do ? This is meant as a fun test to see how ones' balance and core is. It is not meant to build anything. There are many exercises that progressively work up to addressing the entire body that help one hit the ball better, but that is not what this is all about. Thanks for your input.
• Thanks Lihu..I dont hate it, I just dont have fun playing ...so the interest isnt there any longer...I am still a golf fan..just not a player..
• Hello everyone. I’m brand new (about a month) to golf, and I’ve been lurking here for a few weeks. I figured it was about time to join!    I look forward to getting to know y’all!
• I have a distant cousin who tried it and even forced me to go to the driving range a few times long before I was into playing. I found it stupid and not worth my time, but did it just to keep him company. He never got the hang of it, quit then 6 years later my kids got into it and my archery range virtually shut down so I started playing golf with them. My cousin hates it just like you, and I started out thinking this is the dumbest activity ever made but now enjoy it. You never know what’s in your future, just take a break from it. We’ll be here, or, at least some of us.
• Interesting workout you have here. I suggest doing some hip opener exercise. It'll help activate your lower body and hit the ball further!
