What is the best pitching wedge for high handicappers?
If you were fit for your irons, the set pitching wedge will probably be the best option for high handicappers. There are several differences between a set pitching wedge and a Vokey pitching wedge. The set pitching wedge will have the same technology and profile as the rest of your set, including head shape, groove and MOI. A Vokey pitching wedge will typically feature a more aggressive groove and more compact head shape.
What degree is a standard pitching wedge?
Traditionally, a pitching wedge had 46-50° of loft, but as set lofts get stronger, the pitching wedge continues to get stronger as well.
How far can you hit a pitching wedge?
There is no standard pitching wedge distance. Every player hits their clubs different yardages. It is important to have the proper loft gapping in your wedge set to promote more full wedge shots. Voke recommends 4-6° of loft between each wedge.
What’s the difference between a sand wedge and a pitching wedge?
A pitching wedge is primarily used on full shots and long pitch shots, but can also be a valuable tool around the greens. A sand wedge was originally designed to be used out of the sand and around the greens, but can also be used on full shots.
