Proper Wedge Gapping

    One of the most overlooked items in custom fit clubs is proper wedge gapping. In most iron sets the loft increments between irons will be 3 to 5 degrees. The average pitching wedge today is between 45 and 47 degrees in loft. Often times the next wedge in a players set will be a sand wedge which is generally 56 degrees loft. This means they have a 9 to 10 degree loft difference between these two clubs.

    A good rule of thumb is to have no more than a 5 degree difference in loft between your wedges.
If you are not sure of the actual loft of your wedges stop by and let us check them on our Mitchell  Golf loft and lie machine. Often times wedges can be a few degrees stronger or weaker than what is stamped on them. We can also recommend what loft wedges you need to complete the wedge make up in your set.
