I was looking for a gap wedge to fill my 100 to 120 yard gap in my bag. I did my research and looked at a number of clubs as well as which degree wedge would fill my need. As you can guess I setteled on the PXG Forged 50 degree wedge, which you can see all the specs I selected when ordering the club here.
Which degree should I choose?
This is a great question and it all will depend on what need you are trying to fill. With that being said here are the typical yardage for the degree of wedge you choose:
- 50 degree = 115 yards
- 52 degree = 106 yards
- 54 degree = 100 yards
- 58 degree = 84 yards
The above averages will be a good starting point for you when thinking about adding a new gap wedge to your bag.
Chipping with 0311 PXG 50 degree wedge
Chipping around the green with the PXG 50 degree wedge was crisp and easily to get on target consistently at different distances. In comparing a 60 degree wedge to using a 50, I would personally go with the 50 over the 60 for most chips around the green. Overall I was very happy with the control and ease to get the ball off the ground and on target.
PXG 50 degree on the range
Looking down at the club head at address, it was a bit smaller than I am use too since this is more of a blade style club, however, after a few swings I really liked the look and feel of this club. Consistency was decent for my first few swings, which you can see in the image below and it just kept getting better and better with more swings. The ball flight was very good, yardage was impressive. Yardage was consistently in the 125 – 130 yardage range as I got more comfortable with the club.
