What wedges should a mid handicapper carry?
A mid-handicap only needs to carry two or three wedges in their bag. The first is a 45-degree pitching wedge, the second is a 50-degree gap wedge, and the third is a 54-degree sand wedge. These three wedges are the most important and should be the first wedges you get.
