I have been using my 54 lately everywhere


ChefNamu

Me too. Trying to break the habit of always grabbing my 60, which has too high variance in results if I look at my stats


Gullible-Lunch

I use my 60 almost exclusively. I really love it’s ability to both drop a shot from 60yrds out right next to the cup and to take a shot from 20 yards out and blade it over the green… very versitile


bullet_sponge

The blade over the green from 4 yards is my signature shot.


slice_slice_baby

Despite my username, I’m the same. I’ll also get jittery and chip it maybe 6 inches forward


InvestmentPatient117

Right under the ball for the bogey


Camusknuckle

I felt this deep in my soul


pnwhawks206

Can only relate to the second part. Have zero experience dropping anything next to the cup except for birdie putts.


gangsta-grillz

Confirming that was my entire morning today


Vigilante17

I can hit a 60 about 225 yards on a good day


YourStolenCharizard

LW now only comes out for me on full shots, short sided shots, or I need little to no roll. Usually only use for 1-2 shots a round and have been playing much better since adjusting.


ChefNamu

This is what I'm aiming for basically. Invaluable when you need it, but I play it more than I should. I'm basically using it 5 ish times a round, but some of those are still probably better served putting or chipping with less loft, particularly at my home course. Even full shots I'm trying to do partial 54 or 50 swings instead of using the 60.


Tomurrito

Same. Technically my 54 is bent down to 53 to solve gapping issues… But it’s the best all around wedge for anything around greens. I can open the face to flight it, or hit off the toe so it bumps and runs, or place back in the stance for high spin so it checks up. I use it out of sand too unless (the lip is super high). Most versatile wedge for sure


Grey__X

I think 56 is more versatile, I recently switched from 54/58 to 56/60 and the 56 is such a nice tool to have.!pops a little more loft and doesn’t sacrifice anything the 54 can d


Tomurrito

56 doesn’t fit the gap in my bag. But my 53 fills the same role. My wedges are 44, 48, 53, 58


lawltech

I’ve got the same thing with a 54 bent to 53. It’s my go to also


JamesBMac

Yep.


supplyncommand

same. this is my go to club for 100 yards and in. it really is whether you have the touch or not that day for me. 70-90 i can be spot on 3/4 swing. 30-50 is 1/4 swing. chip with it around the green, sometimes my new zipcore 50° more and more when i want/need to keep it low and run a long way


KGsaid

What bounce do you use? I’m considering getting one of those TM Bigfoot wedges (high bounce) in a 56


run66

54 club checking in! mine has the most forgiving bounce of the three wedges I carry. also my confidence club from 100 in.


Bewbies420

The only club i bought brand new, and i use it just about everywhere from 100yds in. I figured out my chipping technique with it and its been my baby ever since. It even gave me confidence to fix my buddies chip swings (they play far less than i do so its not unsolicited) and theyve been killing it.


Orikoru

PW maybe? 120 full shot, 70 yards half shot, and use it for a lot of chip and runs around greens.


BroSocialScience

Ya I am most comfortable doing chips with a bit of run, partial swings, and other "feel" shots with my good ole P


Lambowski99

Same here, my favorite club in the bag.


beatemdown

Pitching wedge gang for life. I also carry a 52 and a 60 for short sided chips or bunker shots but never hit them for full shots. 1/2 or 3/4 PW all day for 50-80 shot


Legal-Description483

56° (SW) Use it for 95% of my shots inside 100 yards.


vpatrick

This is totally me. Ive been trying to use other clubs to make that part of my game a little more exciting... just trying to explore other options. Always grabbing my 56 gets a little mundane after a while even tho it is one of my favorite clubs


feelin_cheesy

The 8i bump and run is so underrated


jjdlg

9i for me, but once I discovered it, my wedges have been quite lonely.


IAintYourPalFriend

lol 7i for me, obviously only when the chip is flat enough and I don’t need much loft, but I can consistently put that within 3 feet of the hole. I may be different though because I’m talking about the “just outside of the fringe and can’t put it” shots. I don’t bump and run on chips much longer than that.


UncleFlip

That's pretty much what I use anything under 100. I sometimes use my 7i to basically putt from just off the green if I need it to run out more. Although I have been eyeing that chipr from Ping.


throwawaysscc

Chipo v Chipr https://youtu.be/_j84tu-F7hw


UncleFlip

Now I want a Chipo just because


goatpath

I just got one, it's just a great option to have and all I had to do was take out one of my hybrids (the longer one)


UncleFlip

That was my plan. I have a 1h I never hit.


goatpath

The "optionality" around the green is great. Also, just saying, I play in the desert, and I have to occasionally hit it out of the rocks. ChipR out of the rocks, or under a cactus, or through a tight window... it's all just the same $$$$ trajectory. It comes out hot enough to bounce its way to the green so you can try and save bogey. On top of that, if you gouge your ChipR, who cares! People were going to make fun of you for having it anyway, might as well be dinged up lol.


UncleFlip

My game already gets made fun of so this will fit in just fine.


SumpCrab

I like a 5i bump and run. Lower loft for those shots that are on the fairway 5-10 yards from the green without any serious elevation change. I've "chipped in" more doing that than all 3 of my wedges combined.


silppurikeke

I don’t understand why just not putt it then? Does it really make a difference?


SumpCrab

It depends on how the lead up is. The idea is to just get it up over the longer grass on the fringe so it hits the green on the line you want. When putting you often get weird bounces from the fairway/fringe.


warneagle

The terrain between you and the green might not be favorable for it. You don't wanna putt if the collar is kinda shaggy or if the ground is really wet. The bump and run gets the ball airborne for just long enough to get it over any obstacles between you and the green.


SleepyGolfer69

My wedge game improved a ton this year when I started clubbing up on shots from 130 or so in and swinging very smooth with little to no wrist action.


vpatrick

Ive been doing this a lot as well. Club up = easier swing


Megalynarion

My sandwedge doesn’t really have a flat bottom to it, it’s kind of curved so I’m afraid to use it more often outside of the bunker… Am I just being an idiot?


My0therAccount-

No Depending on the type of course or lie you are playing the 'bounce' will make a difference. I mostly play links golf so the lies are quite tight, a high bounce club isn't the best for this. If you are in the rough with a higher bounce club then batter on. https://www.golfbidder.co.uk/help-and-advice/buyers-guides/20201117/what-is-bounce-on-golf-clubs.html PS the first cut on a links course is like the fairway on other courses I've played.


mrwolfisolveproblems

By curve I assume you mean bounce, so you’re not entirely wrong. Hard, tight fairways or hard pan (all over the place at the muni’s near me) can be risky with a lot of bounce. You have to catch the ball first and perfect or you’re going to skull it. Full swing shots usually aren’t an issue for me, but 3/4 swings and under can get dicey. I still prefer the 56, but will grab the 54 for a tight, hard lie. Edit: keep it in your pants everyone, no 54. I have a 52 and 56. Typo


Gazalaturner

You have a 54 and a 56??


HROmega21

And a 55 for when things get really hairy.


iceman39

I was terrified to use my SW for the longest time anywhere but the sand. I'd find myself using my PW anywhere inside 100. Once I got over my fear and practiced at the range it's been a game changer. Saving at least 1-3 strokes a round usually just getting my wedge close enough now to one putt instead of two.


FunkFox

Yes


gitbse

56 for me as well. I can fly it 115 full swing, and have it pretty dialed for major numbers inside, 75, 50, etc. I carry a 60, but only use it for when I have something I *really* need to fly over.


xWhitzzz

Same. For some fucked reason, I can’t hit my 60. I either get too much divot or blade it. Don’t even get it out anymore really. And there’s only a handful of times I use my 52. And that’s only bc I have like a 50 yard difference between my 56 and my PW. 110-125 out is the only time I’ll use my 52.


samoore45

56. I use from 60 yards in. Not sure that is the best, but it works for me most of the time.


Sounderusm

Same here. For me 65 or 70 yards. Use the 52 for 70 to 85 yards. I need a gap wedge. I can't seem to half swing my pw and get it under 105. My pw is Cobra LTDx so the loft is like 44 I think. Wish I could get a little more distance out of my 52.


Burger_Bobs

We sound similar. My PW is 115, my 54 goes 85. Got a 48 vokey this season and that is my 95-105.


OssiansFolly

Your setup is like mine. I have 5i-PW then carry a 48°, 52°, and 56°. 48° is a good AW. I have the Cleveland CBX2, and the sole on it is really good for right lies and when you want a little check on chip shots but have that extra room to roll out a little. It's my 110 yard club so it doesn't get used a ton, but still a favorite.


hoffalot

Then that’s the best!


Jsc084

58 - almost everything from 100yd and In.


IAintYourPalFriend

Reading this thread I really thought I was the only one. 58 crew for life, there are dozens of us!


LlamaJacks

I got a 50°, 54°, and a 58° and my gapping has never felt better. Love my wedgies.


LGRW911

Absolutely, throw a little 46° in there too and just have a wedge bonanza in the bag.


CTGolfMan

This is me! I have 46, 50, 54, 58 Cleveland RTX/CBX wedges. Fits my gapping perfectly for my unreasonably juiced irons. (PW is 42.5, it’s dumb but I strike them well).


nimama3233

I did this for years because the 58 has more precision than the 54, but I’ve personally gone back on this and taken the safer 54 on like 80% of my shots now. I’ve found when I mishit my 54 the results are more forgiving, and I’m all about reducing bad shots more than I am trying to get another 4’ closer to the hole. That being said, if it a scramble my 58 is the only wedge that leaves my bag because I’m pin seeking all day.


buddha453

Same. I’m a mid handicapper and know that many guys duff the lobs but I even chip with it. Put in the back of my stance and let it rip


frubalu

58 gang checking in! Also use a 52 bent to 53 so that my wedges are all 5* apart.


3DanO1

Same for me. I use 50° or 54° for full and sometimes 3/4 swings, but use 58° for practically everything else I’ve been trying to occasionally use my 50° around the green more often when I have plenty of green to work with, or when the greens are a little on the slow side. Still not sure if it’s actually better for me than just flying it to the hole with a 58°. In theory, it’s “safer” to use a 50° because you don’t need as much speed, but I just feel so comfortable with the 58°


DontStalkMeNow

For sure. I switched from a 60 to a 58 and I’m a happier man now. I mean, I still have the 60 in the bag but it really only comes out for tight bunkers.


Jsc084

What are you giving up to keep two wedges that close in gap in the bag?


5_Wood

I read Stan Utley’s Art of the Short Game where he mentions using a 58 with a lot of bounce for 90% of shots around the green and I’ve been money ever since. Simple, repeatable swing you can pick up in a day.

KFCConspiracy

I prefer the hand wedge


foxxy003

I utilize it mostly after 2 or 3 swings with the sw to get out of the greenside bunker


Malvania

I was thinking the hand wedge, but it's close.


SolWizard

I was surprised this wasn't the top comment


Chandlingus

52. It's my 100-115 yard club which I tend to wind up with fairly often and I also prefer it for chipping.


Practical-Truth9825

Got my first hole in one with my 52 this week. 115 yard hole


JLM268

Damn lucky I have to use my putter for anything under 200.


realfakedoors5

My favorite club in the bag for sure. Not sure why, but I feel more comfortable with it than anything else


Chandlingus

Totally agree. Ironically it's also one of the cheaper clubs in my bag. 56 and 60 are Callaway Mack Daddy but my 52 is a beat up old Tommy Armour, still prefer it to the others.


realfakedoors5

Yep, I got a Wilson harmonized wedge off Amazon. Nothing fancy, but gets the job done


ExcerptsAndCitations

I'm using the [RAM wedges](https://www.amazon.com/Ram-Golf-Pro-Spin-Wedge/dp/B08JZ23H9B) off of Amazon. They are surprisingly high quality and were easy to learn to hit.


cmrobbins86

I essentially use my 50 for the same reason.


peachdinosaurs

This exactly.


beone21

Jep. Extended the distance with this thing to 100-115 as well. So it’s my go to. Sort of sad for my P now. Used to be my go to


AlphaCajun

My 60*


SDSunDiego

I love being within the distance of the green using the 60. It's nice when just you hit the ball, and it just sticks somewhere close to the hole without rolling much. You remove one of the variables being the ball running on the green when you fly it to the hole.


alias_88

56 has always been my go to. But with my new wedges, My 60 degree has been my bread and butter.


angrygr33k

The 60 is a life saver. Anything within 50 yards I'm a few feet from the pin


arcanecolour

56 degree 100 yards in, around the green, and in the bunkers. I find opening the face on the 56 degree works better than hitting a straight up 60 when i need to hit it high (as long as its not a full swing). 60 degree comes out to get over trees, or when i need to hit a full shot that is high.


DoBe21

I'm sort of like this. Really depends on pin placement and what's between me and there. If it's short sided I just feel more comfortable with my 60. If I have a lot of green to work with I use my 56. I know that that 4 degrees doesn't make THAT much difference, but in my head when I'm over the ball it does. For some reason I can get my 60 to drop and stop, but the 56 always runs out a bit.


BenBoje

I play 50,54,58. I use the 54 the most, very versatile with the bounce I’ve got on it. Good for anything from chip and runs and 115yds.


Silverbullets24

That’s my setup and how I play. I use the 54* for pretty much every thing under 115. Only use the 58 when I really need something to land soft. I do typically use the 58 out of bunkers instead of my 54 though (I prefer the S grind on my 58)


4legsBlueeyes

What bounce do you have on it?


BenBoje

I got it with 12 degree but had a bit more ground down at my fitting so it’s more like a 12.5, helps with the conditions I play on and I like to take a divot.


kunzaz

60


bgallahe

52° Gap wedge. My favorite club in the bag. Use it for 100 yard shots, plus any chipping. I only use my 56° sand wedge for bunkers and shots when I need to get high loft quickly (over trees, steep incline to get up on the green, etc.


selvabeastmon

Same - way less margin for error on 52


vox_veritas

I just bought a little Wilson Harmonized 52 degree wedge for like $35 shipped, and it has been really easy and fun to use in the two rounds I've played with it so far. The "gap wedge" in my current iron set is 48 degrees, and I'm still a relatively new player, so I'm experimenting with different things. Also have a 58 degree with low bounce on the way from Maltby.


marc15v2

Being sensible? Pitching. Being an idiot? 60°


BoomChocolateLatkes

I started using my P more this summer. I can control it so much better than my true wedges. 100 yards in even. It’s a 44° club but gives me a lot more forgiveness. My short game is atrocious.


marc15v2

I've only been playing a year but if I'm like 70-40 yards out I can use the 60° well like 60% of the time but the rest I thin or leave short as shit 🤣


BoomChocolateLatkes

I took the 60 out of my bag back in June. It was just too tempting to use and I can’t figure out how to hit it. If I need to get up and down over a green side bunker or something, I’ll use my SW (54°).


Badwolf2013

That’s my favorite club, but I stopped using it a few years back. I play much less now and the 56 is much more forgiving. I’m too tempted to try and flop every chip if I use my lob wedge.


totally_kyle_

47 degree wedge.


Duckdiggitydog

dinghyofdignity

52 degree, use it outside 60ish yards in

Quick-Warthog7219

50. I find it the most versatile of all clubs.


all_well

62, tried and true


jfk_sfa

Lob (59). I'm using that for most shots of less than 100, until it comes to chipping. Then, I'll use anything down to a 7 depending on the roll distance to carry distance. If the roll distance to carry distance is: * 0.5:1 - L (with varying degrees of an open face as needed) * 1:1 - S * 2:1 - G * 3:1 - P * 4:1 - 9 * 5:1 - 8 * 6:1 - 7 If it's up hill, I'll add one number to the needed roll distance. If it's downhill, I'll take one off of the needed roll distance. So, if the ratio is 4:1 but it's uphill, I'll go with an 8.

LIfeabovetherim

56 but depending on the course the 60 could sneak up there…. A course with elevated green and not sticking them (lots of courses here in northern alabama) I like the 60 for that 20-30 yard pitch shot


PoopDev

58. If I’m aiming to get on the green I don’t wanna take the change I roll over. I’m coming in from the sky.


o-xmx-o

My 52, it has proved very useful since I bought it earlier this year.


cannabourbon

Most used: 56 degree anything under 80. 52 gap for anything 80-105. 48 for 105-120.


Mighty_Zach

Usually my 56, but whenever I find a wedge someone left behind, I’ll give it a shot just to see if they left it there on purpose.


beezer08

54 for probably 80% of my shots within 70 yards of the green.


AccomplishedMost1813

Foot Wedge


Great_New_York_Bewbs

For sure 54. Love it around 80-85 full swing and any chipping inside of 45ish yards. 60 goes about 60 yards but it’s way less consistent on anything below a full swing.

Revolutionary-Let842

60 deg cause I like thinning it over the green or being short from 40 yards when I accidentally hit a 25 yard flop shot.

Is Cleveland Chipper considered a wedge? I use it everywhere. If I could tee off with it, I would. Best money ever spent.


Lars9

Holy shit, yes. I got one yesterday and played today, why did I wait so long to get something like this? I used it 6 times, from short chips just off the green, to a 40 yard shot. I've always been horrible inside of 40, I got up and down twice, including almost chipping in. It's a literal game changer for me.
