Forum Thread of the Day: “Your optimal wedge set-up?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from ClevelandKyle who brings up the subject of wedge set-ups. In the thread, our members discuss what wedges they like to carry as well as answering ClevelandKyle’s question: “If you had to carry two wedges for the rest of your life, what would they be (degree, make, model) and why?”

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • SEP1006: “PW / GW – 0311P PXG GEN 2, same as irons. 54/12 and 58/06 – Ping Glide Stealth 2.0: best wedges I’ve ever played by far, very versatile.”
  • cardoustie: “Like the OP, I keep going back to old school Vokey sm2’s .. 50/54/60. TVD m grinds. No wedge spins it as well or feels as good. I am ordering a Glide 3.0 eye 2 58 though.”
  • manoagolfer: “Vokey 48, 54, 58 and 62. Just added the 62 for the short stuff around the greens and steep faced bunkers.”
  • BCULAW: “RTX4 Raw 46 mid, 50 mid, 56 full, 60 low. After playing Vokeys almost exclusively for the last ten years or so, these Clevelands have been a real eye-opener. Spin is greatly increased, and the grind on the 60 is stellar. Highly recommended.”

    47 – Normal lies around the greens.
    54/10 – Tight or thick lies. Long range or soft sand bunkers.
    60/8 – Mid/short range or hard sand bunkers. Severe downhill or flop shots.

    46 50 54 59. Wish I could find a 3 wedge setup that didn’t leave huge gaps and still gave me decent grind options.

    46, 50, 55, 60

    A little close with the PW and 50* but the gapping works. Oh, well…

‘Did one length irons ruin my game?’ – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

single length irons

In our forums, our members have been reacting to a post from WRXer ‘Alj92’, who is wondering whether switching to one length irons has ruined his game. Alj92 says:

“I played one length irons (King F9) all last season – about 80 rounds. In 20 years of golf I’ve never hit it better, even when I played well as a kid. 

Because I could not find left handed wedges (anything above 48*) or a 4/5i (anything less than 23*), I sold them at the end of last season. 

This year I switched to ping g425’s. Complete confidence, consistency and launch over the 6-7-8. Smash them. But I am struggling immensely with the 4/5 and 9-LW. Long irons thin weak slices, short irons strong pulls. Nowhere close with alignment. 

Did I kill my swing with the one length irons last season? Is that…possible, or does it make sense? Or is this just an expensive validation that I am a prime candidate for one length?”

Our members have been giving their take on the post in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • lefthack: “Maybe just use traditional wedges with one length irons?”
  • GatorNate11: “If I had to guess, your brain/body have probably just adjusted to that length. Give it some time, maybe get a couple of lessons in, and I’m sure you’ll find it again. Unless you made some sort of wild change in your swing with or without realizing it, it’s probably just a feel/visual thing tbh.”
  • Fairway14: “Buy yourself a set of one length irons and wedges.”
