What GolfWRXers are saying about the perfect wedge setup

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing wedge setups after WRXer ‘Seantanner97’ asked for advice on finding the optimal bounce and grind for his proposed three wedge setup. ‘Seantanner97’ is looking to move to a 48, 52 and 56-degree set up and our members have been sharing their advice on how he can get the best out of his wedges.

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.

  • FormerBigDaddy: “I have played this setup for a few years. The PW in my set is 48 degrees, and I rounded out my bag with a 52-56. That being said, I found myself using my 56 exclusively from 100 and in and not hitting my 52 much at all. MAYBE once a round if the yardage came up. I originally went to this setup bc I felt like I got too cute with my 60 and it cost me shots. But I’m a better golfer now, and I think I’m missing something not having a lob wedge. All that said I have a 54 and 60 on the way and going to give that set up a shot. I figure the 54 will replace my 56 for most of my straight forward shots and the 60 will be used when I’m short-sided. Not getting rid of my 52-56 bc it doesn’t work out I’ll go back.”
  • jwadds19: “For me, it’s really about how much/comfortable a person is with partial shots vs full shots. I find I make more consistent contact when I take more full swings, so I like 46 (set PW) and 50 54 58 as it gives me more options. I also haven’t really had any issues with the opposite end of the bag or felt like anything’s is missing, so that helps make the decision easier.”
  • Kaiser00: “I’ve got 45 PW,50,55,60, but just bought a 56 low bounce for the tight lies and wet bunker shots.”
  • taylormade4life: “I have long bounced back and forth between 52/58 and 52/56/60 off a 47 PW. I found that I needed an extra option for longer par 4, par 5, or par 3s, and I ran into a few situations where I would need to take out the 5W or 3UDI to keep my wedges in. I noticed that I didn’t hit many 60s and so I sold the 56/60 and got a 58. Best of both worlds for me, as I can now keep the top end of my bag and reduce the options in my lower bag. The more I practice with just the 52/58 I don’t ever see a need for 3. I do play the 52 as an extension of the set and rarely hit a full 58 unless I need to get to a tight pin or if it’s downwind I may do it to help it stop quicker.PW 47* – 127 yds. 52* – 110 yds. 58* – 95 yds. It works well that I can swing easier in any of them to hit the gaps as well.”
  • kearneyhill: “I like 4 wedges. PW, GW, SW and LW. I bent a 47* pitching wedge that’s the same model as my pitching wedge to 51 degrees and used acetone to remove the paint fill on the bottom, so I recognize it more easily in the bag. I could probably get away with 3 wedges that were 46, 51 and 57 but have more shots inside of 200 yards, so I don’t need a 3 iron or 5 wood anything like that. My setup includes two Srixon 765 PWs and the new Vokey SM8 54 & 58 that I bent. PW 46* – 132ish. GW 51* – 120ish. SW 55* – 100ish. LW 59* – 80ish but mainly 60 yards in.”

    47,53,59 if i’m going with 3 wedges
    46,50,55,59 if i’m going with 4 wedges.

    4 has helped my game under pressure to have more full stock numbers where 3 makes you a better feel player. I just don’t need another long club at top of my bag with 4 iron going 230 and hybrid going nearly 250 anymore. I like the thought of 3 wedges and the versatility it leaves you with at top of bag, but if I seriously don’t need the extra club I may as well have another scoring club. I don’t need to carry 3 iron just to carry 3 iron.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member CC_Stryder – Toulon Rochester

Looking for a putter that gets its names from a city in New York state with a flow neck? Well…the name might not be exactly what you are looking for, but if a flow neck is what you are after, then look no further.

Member StillCantPutt – PXG BlackJack Putter

The newest putter from PXG at less than new price. Don’t let the seller’s name discourage you either, this thing should help you sink more putts.
