Top 10 Wedges

Top 10 Golf Wedges Buyers GuideScience has played a great role in the development of the game of golf, but whilst the type of metal used and groove configuration influence golf wedge performance, the short game relies on skill and ‘touch.’

There are four main types of golf wedges:

  • the pitching wedge, with a loft of 45-50 degrees, is designed for longer approach shots of 100-125 yards, and is included in most sets of irons.
  • the gap wedge, with a loft of 51-54 degrees, nicely fills the gap between the pitching wedge and sand wedge and is suitable for approaches of 80-110 yards.
  • the sand wedge (55-58 degrees) is most often used for escaping from bunkers, but is also ideal for close, high shots of up to 85 yards.
  • the lob wedge (60-64 degrees) is used for short, very high-flying shots.

Prices range from £50-£100.
