This is a bit of a complicated one.
Whenever, you buy a new set, the pitching wedge is a 50 degrees. and if there is a sand wedge in the full set it will be a 56 degree or a 54 or a 56 degree.
Interestingly, between 50 degree and 60 degree wedges .. there are 4 more wedges in even degrees (52, 54, 56, 58) ... Golfers buy and use these wedges based on there game requirement and style of play. If you are a long hitter and you are mostly around 80 yards from the pin then a golfer would 54 or a 56 degree.
