Not 60 for sure. That's more of a Lob Wedge which is hard to execute and need more carefully executed shot. You can use pitching for bump and run. 52 for full Wedge under 100m and 56 for short pitch and sand. My setup is 52, 56 and 60. I only use 60 if I need to carry hazard/bunkers near the apron. I never attempt these days flop shots or those pro stuff. I've tried before with disastrous results hahaha.

After I got to proper training with Coach then I Learn the basic rules - try first to putt.. Then chip last pitch. These days my preferred Wedge is 56.52 is for medium bump run and full 70m shot. I also practice chipping with P and 9.

Also need to consider the bounce.

Rule of Thumb:
degree between wedges should be 4 degrees difference.
ie..if u intent to get a 60 loft wedge..then ur next one should be 56 sand wedge, n d next 52 approach wedge..
Very common to have 3 wedges in a bag, Loft, Sand, Approach.
I would suggest u try out the wedges at the range first cos u need to know what kind of distance and learn what u can do with different degree wedges.
As a beginner, I don't recommend to use lob wedges...

I agree with azri that bounce should be highly considered if you don't hit the ball cleanly enough as in the case with high handicappers. I won't discourage you from considering putting a 60 degree lob wedge in your bag. In fact, using a 60 degree wedge with the right bounce for your swing is 100 times better than trying to increase loft by opening up the face of your 56 degree wedge.

The only difference its the loft.. =)

A 56 i believe is a standard sand wedge, 60 being a lob wedge.... and of course each different manufacturer's wedges will have different lie angle, bounce....

For high handicap players around the greens, i always believe in less air time, more roll time so i'd probably stay away from anything beyond a 56.

If i had to get another wedge, i'd get something in between the pitching and sand wedge..

Maybe have a look at this

There are many things to consider when buying wedges :
- loft, bounce, grind, finish, shaft...

But most important is loft and bounce. If you dig and play soft ground in general more bounce. If you 're sweeper type and play much on hard ground less bounce. That's why sand Wedge are typically high bounce.. More than 10 normally.. Mine is 12.

Perhaps you can look at your distance gap first then fill in the Wedge. Don't focus much on those high spinning back spin shots... Never happened to me hahaha maybe I'm bad player.. But those soft 2-3 bounce ones you can achieve with practice.
