My current wedges (Cleveland RTX 3) are getting worn, and I am in the market for some new wedges. To help, here is a little bit about me. 
I Play AP2's and my Pitching wedge is 46 degrees. Currently I have 52,56,60 but want to go to 50,54,58.

  • I'm a 5 handicap, with the strength of my game being 85 YARDS and out. I dont like hitting half shots inside 85 yards.
  • My current lob wedge has 10 degrees of bounce
  • I am a digger
  • I know what lofts I want. I prefer the 50, 54 and 58 set up.
  • I  will use my 50 and 54 degree almost exclusively for full shots and the 58 out of bunkers
  • I use my PW around the greens, but will also use my lob wedge depending on the shot loft needed
  • I would like to get SM7's


Should I get fit or does the setup below work for me?

50- F
54 - F
58 - D

I usually say get fit, but you're a 3.5 and you know what you want, so there's that. I'd say you're giving up some versatility going with the F grind on the 54°, but if you're going to use it exclusively for full swing shots I don't see how that would hurt anything.

After a fitting last week I purchased a 54* k grind with 16* of bounce. Granted I have yet to get my club in... it was awesome. Usually I am exclusively using my 58 around the green but this new wedge can do it all. I was easily hitting 10yd flop shots off tight lies (which I could never do).

Fits in the bag well as my 50 is low bounce and 58 is 8*. As a fellow digger I highly recommend checking in out.

    • Day 67, July 31, 2021 More three-quarter swing stuff today. I really am trying to shorten the backswing.
    • What a shot into 18 with all that pressure.  Great playing Xander.
    • One of the people who introduced me to golf in the first place would regularly do things that are generally bad etiquette:  try to make me mad during the round, talk during my swing, etc.  The good news is that now, when someone does things like making noise while I'm swinging my accident, it doesn't annoy me unless they're trying to mess me up (which no one has done, at least to my knowledge).
    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
