Golf Irons Set – A Guide To Wedges

Golf irons set will contain a number of wedges, and thus it is vital to know a bit more about them. A wedge is basically the term that is used to describe any golf irons that have a loft above 45 degrees. In this post, we will give you a brief overview of the four wedges that are available and who they are suited to.

The four irons you have at your disposal are a Lob Wedge (LW), a Sand Wedge (SW), an Approach or Gap Wedge (GW or AW), and a Pitching Wedge (PW). A Lob Wedge boasts the biggest loft degree of them all, i.e. 60 degrees and above. In fact, the loft can even be as big as 64 degrees. This is when you need to throw the ball high over a very short distance. Next, we have the Sand Wedge. This tends to have a loft between 54 and 58 degrees, Due to the high bounce, these wedges tend to be used for bunker play. The Gap Wedge, which is also sometimes referred to as an Approach Wedge, is called this because it fills the gap between a sand wedge and a pitching wedge. This is an iron with a loft between 50 and 55 degrees. And finally, the smallest loft of all the wedges is the Pitching Wedge, which has a loft between 46 and 50 degrees. You will find that the vast majority of iron sets come with a Pitching Wedge included. This tends to be utilised for longer shots onto the green.
