Same as longshot. I believe the PW now is lofted like a 9 iron from when I started playing, so I carry the stock PW with 3 other wedges. I basically use the PW for full shots and pitch and runs. So:
46* PW Mizuno MX-23 (120 yards)
51*/6 GW Cleveland 588 (100 yards)
56*/14 SW Cleveland 588 (80 yards)
60*/3 LW Cleveland 588 (60 yards)
The 4 wedges are absolutely vital to the way I play. The club from 100 yards and in can vary from lie, amount of green to work with, etc. etc. so you need to give yourself as many options as possible.
I really don't feel I've lost out elsewhere in my bag, as I have 4-PW irons, driver, 3 wood and rescue, so all bases are covered.
Sorry for the waffle, but I'm a firm believer in having 4 wedges basically.
