Gap Wedge

A type of wedge with a loft angle of approximately 52°. Historically speaking, the gap wedge is a relatively new option and its purpose – as its name implies – is to bridge the gap between the 48° pitching and the 56° sand wedges.

What degree is a gap wedge?

Gap wedges usually have a loft angle (degree) of approximately 52°. This varies between club manufacturers and usually a few degree options are available from each manufacturer. The idea here is to choose a gap wedge with a loft that will nicely fit in between that of the pitching wedge and sand wedge.
