Proper gapping between irons and wedges
In regards to improving your short game one of the most important factors in ensuring the proper gap in the distances between your irons and wedges. Typically the loft between irons is three to four degrees. Because of this you will probably need about 4 degrees between wedges.
To find the proper gaping measure compare the loft on your most lofted wedge to your shortest iron. Let's say your wedge is 58 degrees and your pitching wedge is 46 degrees. This 12 degree gap requires adding a 50 and 54 degree wedge to your bag. This spaces your lofts at 4 degree increments. Without these wedges you have an excessively large gap that requires partial shots on a regular basis.
Getting fitted by a professional will ensure proper gaping between your irons and wedges and will most certainly lead to a better short game.
