Filling a Gap

Recommended Posts

I’ve got a ZX5 5-iron also, then ZX7 6-PW. I tried a ton of clubs in between my 3 Hybrid and 5-iron, but over the last few weeks I settled on a 22* 4 Hybrid to go with the 3H since they have totally different launch angles, spin, and distances.

 

The clubs I tried in that spot were: 

Srixon Z U85, Z565 4-iron, ZX5 4-iron, TaylorMade P790 4-iron, and P770 4-iron

 

Of all those, the 2 Hybrid setup has worked best for me and dropping the 4-iron/Driving iron.

I'd say 3H. If it gaps 12-15 yards down from your 2H that puts it right in between it and the 5I. The thing about choking down on the 2H is that it won't hit out of the rough as well as with a higher loft.

Get a 4H  or just choke up the 2H?  Then add an extra wedge.

 

My yardages are very similar to the OP and this is exactly what I do (choke up on the hybrid).  Sometimes I carry a lob wedge and sometimes I carry an old 1 iron to screw around with and hit punch shots with.

I bent my PW to 44 and my 9 to 40*  then carry a 48, 52, 56, and 61.  At the longer end carry a 5 iron and a 3H.  A 3 wood turned to 17* and a 10.5* driver.

That is a nice setup you got there, pretty similar for me but have a TM-B 2i for a driving iron and other uses.

What's in the bag:

Driver: 2017 Taylormade M1 8.5 w/ HZRDUS Yellow 6.5

Fairway Wood: Sim Max 3w w/ HZRDUS Smoke Yellow 6.5

Irons: 710 AP2 4-P w/ True Temper DG X100

Wedges: Vokey SM6 set (52/56/60) w/ True Temper DG X100

Putters: Bettinardi BB1

Since I already have my 52 and 58° wedges, I'm thinking of maybe adding a 48 to close the gap between my PW and 52.  Then adding maybe a 4H to close gap between my 5i and 2H.

 

I'm gonna have to take the 5 wood or 2H out because they are both the same lofts. I just realized that a while ago LOL!

If you go to a 3H (20*) and remove the 5 wood and the 2H  then that gap will be closed. you would have:

15* ,20*, 24* (5I)  then down thru the wedges bend the 58* to 56*  and add a 60*

Isn't a 48° Just another PW? I thought Gap wedges didn't start until 50° if I add a 48 I will have 2 PWs?

Yes and no. for some thats a pw, others it’s a gap wedge. just worry about the lofts so that it works. if i were you i’d drop either your 5w or 2h, and add a 21° hybrid and a 48° wedge.

And that's Exactly what I've been Thinking of Doing is this right here. My Wedges are Cleveland CG14s which I love but I'm not having any luck finding a 48 in that. So the 48 I get will likely have to be something else. Any ideas?

Ok what I done was got a used 48° wedge to fill gap between my 44 PW and my 52 Wedge. I ordered a Cleveland UHX 4 iron 20° to fill the Gap between my 18° 5 Wood and my 5 Iron. 

 

My bag will be 14 clubs as Follows....

Srixon Z585 Driver 

Cleveland Launcher HB 3 wood 15°

Cobra max 5 wood 18°

Cleveland UHX 4 Iron

Srixon ZX5 5-PW

Cleveland 588 48°Wedge

Cleveland CG14 black pearl 52°

Cleveland CG14 black pearl 58°

Cleveland Classic Putter

They are not adjustable 

Understood but you are giving stock 5 iron yardage and you don’t have the clubs yet. Unless I missed you actually getting them.

 

Your gaps may or may not exist as stated.

 

Based on your recent buys in theory you should have it, but where and how you cover them may surprise you once you hit them.

 

That’s all I’m saying.

I understand that where the concern comes in is between that hybrid and 5 iron. The rest I'm not worried about. So adding that 4 iron will help because I will now omit either the 5 wood or the 2 hybrid which ever one closes the Gap the best.

Actually I did look at those 2 clubs wrong I thought both were same lofts. My 5W is 19° and the 2H is 18° So I think since the 4 iron I have being 20° it's going to be wise to omit the 19 5W and keep the 18 2H. That gives me 3 degrees between my 3W and 2H and 2 degrees between my 2H and 4 iron. This and adding that 48° Gap Wedge will cover my gaps pretty good.
