@ZappyAd, I figured you knew your wedge distances, I was more talking to the whole TST universe, it was more rhetorical than anything.
I also mentioned taping personal yardages for wedges either below the grip or just above the head on your wedge shafts. I have mine on all my wedges and irons... My irons, though I only have 10:30 and full yardages, I haven't worked out the 9:00 and 7:30 yet, there some clubs I need to though, for the 5 or less tournament I'm playing soon.
I maybe wasn't clear in the original post but I know my full swing yardages and my intermediate distances for my current set of wedges. I'm just wondering if there is a better way to arrange the gaps based on the experience of others. I like the clock face system for hitting intermediate distances so I'm interested in how to optimize it.
When I bought my first set of wedges I only thought about the gaps in loft. I then worked out out the yardages afterwards, but that means I ended up with some uneven yardage gaps. So second time round I am going to look at things by distance i.e. I am going to buy a wedge that goes X yards with a full swing.
My current wedge profile looks like this (distance along the x axis, %age effort on the y axis, each wedge has a different color)
So I could bunch the full swing yardages closer together, but then I lose a high lofted wedge around the green:
Or I can spread out the full swing yardages:
Or maybe I can learn to hit more intermediate distances with each wedge.
4 wedges and 3-4 distances seems to be a common approach so I am just interested in how people put their yardages together. Or maybe, like me, they just bought the wedges and then see what yardages they end up with.
