I was wanting some wedges for Christmas this year is I only have a pitching wedge. I think I should get a 56 in a 52 but my grandpa thinks I should get a 50 and 56.   What combo should I get?

Depends on a ton of things. First off, what is the loft of your PW? Most people recommend 4-6 degrees of separation between wedges. So if you're PW is 48 degrees, then 50 is probably too close. It it's 46 degrees, then a 50 and 56 might work. Also, don't be afraid to visit a store like Golfsmith and hit some wedges on the launch monitor to see what lofts you hit well.

It sounds like you're a beginner and most people recommend not starting with too many wedges, but when you're ready, If you have room for another wedge in your bag, you also might want a LW. In that case you could go 52-56-60 or 50-54-58 or copy me and go 50-54-60.

There is not a one size fits all answer to what wedges to carry. Long story short, figure out the loft of your PW, take it from there and mind the gaps.

if you have a PW, definitely a 50 & 56

If your GW and SW are separate models from your PW (probably from iron set), make sure you don't end up with an odd gap between your PW and GW.

When I got my X20 Tours, the PW was 46* so I thought at first I would go with 52 - 56. But, the PW had a hotter face than the CG14 wedges, and the 46 to 52 has about a 16 yard distance gap. So, I ended up with 50 / 54 /58.

As per PJC, check out the wedges on a launch monitor to get your distance gaps.

I'd ask your Grand Pa why his advice differs from what you think you need. Then go from there. Or, you can get all three. That way both you and your Grand Pa are happy golfers.
