    Re: Do I need a wedge as a beginner?

    A 46 wedge has too little loft to do 'everything' with it, get a 52 or 54 and the same is not true.

    then it's 3

    Low, medium and high.
    Don't try and make it more difficult.

    As for the OP, I would say a 56 SW will be ideal to start with.
    You saved me saying exactly the same bob. I would pick up a couple of wedges then you have a complete set of irons for when you want to start playing full courses.

    Depending on the irons, a lot of them actually do a gap wedge that would match the rest of your irons, especially with the stronger lifted iron sets.

    Sounds like a decent enough deal. Go out and learn how to use ball position and opening and closing the face to manipulate flight and spin and you'll soon have a decent short game. Enjoy.
