Get Out of Tricky Situations with the Right Wedge
Be prepared for any lie with our collection of golf wedges. With dozens of clubs from well-known brands including PING, Cleveland, Callaway, Cobra, and Mizuno, we have the wedges your golf game needs. After all, we all have swings that send the ball to a not-so-great spot. When your ball is in the bottom of a sand pit, on the dangerous edge of a water hazard, or just at an awkward distance from the hole, a good wedge is what you need to get your ball to a better location.
In golf, wedges are designed entirely to get your ball out of difficult lies. The short shafts, heavy heads, and high lofts of these clubs mean that they excel at lobbed shots in any location. If your ball is too far from the green to putt, but too close to use an iron, a pitching wedge or gap wedge provides the perfect amount of distance to put your ball on the green - the choice depends on how far you need to go. If you're stuck in the bottom of a sand trap, sand wedges are designed to lift the ball up and out of the pit.
Choosing the Right Golf Wedge for the Job
There are many different subtypes of wedges in golf, with each type being used for a specific situation. Traditionally, wedges were commonly divided into subtypes by name, such as pitching wedges or sand wedges. In recent years, major brands have also begun labeling them by varying degrees of loft instead. If you aren't used to the new naming system, the following breakdown will help you find the right club for the situation you're facing. Note that each manufacturer uses slightly different lofts, so these numbers are only estimates:
- Lofts of about 48° correspond to pitching wedges.
- Lofts of about 52° correspond with gap wedges.
- Lofts of about 56° correspond with sand wedges.
- Lofts of about 60° correspond with lob wedges.
