I dont know if you have ever read a book by Dave Pelz? Basically he said take 4 wedges as you have, learn 3 swings that you can replicate, 7 oclock, 9 oclock and 10:30.reins said:I never concidered my PW a W but by deff. I guess it is. I'm at 4. PW, 50, 55, 60.
I carry this many because I'd rather take a full swing at 90 yards with a 55 then try and do a half with a PW. Not completely accurate as far as distances go but that is my reasoning.
It takes a huge time commitment for your lob wedge to pay off. Nobody feels comfortable taking a half-swing from 20 yards at first, but that comes with practice. Most people (myself included ) don't know when to use the lob wedge and when not to. They're either too cautios, playing a bump-and-run to 10 feet when they could've flopped it to 3 feet; Or, they're too aggresive, playing a high-risk shot when a bump-and-run would get you just as close without the unneccesary risk.To be honest, the lob wedge I carry has cost me more shots than it has ever saved me.
Aaron said:I used to carry 4, but recently upgraded my clubs from Ping ISI to Titleist 735 CM and there was no sw supplied. But its no great loss I never really used it anyway, besided I have 54, 60 vockey spin milled face wedges now and there unbelivable. They cover everything from 110 in and my pw can cover the rest. Will have to find another club to fit in the bag now, the wife will be happy HAHA.
