Three wedges or an additional 5 wood for skilled Junior golfers?

He must be a bigger kid. He definitely outdistances mine by a few and mine isn't short. We are still waiting for the good growth spurt. Right now he is hanging in there at around 5'2".
My son is ticked I have to work late tonight and can't do workouts with him. He has a slight case of ADD and always has to be doing something. Golf is always his fall back and he never gets bored with it.

As a junior I played a 3w-5w 3 iron- 5 iron
Now I play 3w-5w-4hybrid 5 iron
I'd agree having your junior become better with his wedges would be soemthing he should have
I also have a buddy who goes 5 wood -7 wood but plays them as his 3-5 because it works better for his slower speed . That would also alleviate your sons need for the 3 hybrid and he could jump right into the 4 hybrid
You are absolutely right - the distance gap between long irons are smaller. I was wondering why and did not have an answer. Do you say it's the slower swing speed as a junior? it is like this:
4 iron, 21.5 degree, carry about 155
5 iron, 24 degree, carry about 150
6 iron, 27 degree, carry about 144
7 iron, 31 degree, carry about 135
You can see the gap between 4 and 5 is only 5 yards, while it's 9 yards between 6 and 7.
