I think I already know the answer to this, but just wanted to get some confirmation.
I’m looking to replace my SW and LW with some Sub 70s, and this has me thinking about my bag set up.
At the upper end of the bag, I added a 5-hybrid this year to replace my 4-iron, and it has worked well for me. High ball flight (maybe too high) and goes about 195-200. Also carry a 7-wood, which I carry about 210-215. I realized recently that I hardly ever hit my 5-iron anymore, which carries about 195, but lower flight than the hybrid. So I’m thinking I really don’t need 3 clubs that only span about a 20-yard gap.
At the lower end, I carry a gap wedge (49 degrees, 115 carry), sand wedge (54 degrees, 95 carry), lob wedge (58 degrees, 75 carry). This leaves me too much of a gap right around the 100 yard mark.
So I was think maybe keeping the gap wedge and going 52/54/58. The 52 ought to cover that 100 yard distance.
My only concerns are:
- how old I am going to feel if my longest iron is a 6-iron (I know I just need to get over myself and accept it)
- will having wedges at 49/52/54/58 seem like too many, too confusing around the green?
Also anyone know if Sub70 can adjust the loft, bend the 54 to 55 so I have consistent 3 degree gaps?
