Wedge fitting and gapping should also be considered when optimizing your set of clubs. In order to be able to carry out custom golf wedge fitting, your PGA Professional will take the time to understand the types of shots you would like to play and if you play your golf primarily on inland or links conditions. There are so many options of lofts and bounces these days that it often becomes very confusing as to what you should be using.
By today’s standards most pitching wedges are around 44 degrees of loft, give or take. Your wedge gapping needs to be even amount between them and the pitching wedge for example, 47 degree PW, 53 degree gap wedge and 59 degree lob wedge. That would be a 6 degree gap between each club. Some players prefer a 5 degree gap while others like to carry 4 wedges and have a 4 degree difference between them. These options will all be discussed with your fitter. The amount of bounce on each club needs to vary as well depending upon your swing shape, talent level and the turf you hit from.
It is critical by the end of the fitting that you are comfortable with the 60 to 120 yard shot as well as pitching and chipping with lofts you like. This is an area of the game that is overlooked by amateurs and it’s an easy area to improve on.
