Know your pitching wedge loft. If it’s 45 degrees or less, add three more wedges that are spaced apart by no more than 4-5 degrees each. So generally think about putting in a gap wedge that’s 48 or 50 degrees, a sand wedge that’s between 54 and 56 degrees, and a lob wedge that’s between 58 and 60 degrees.

## What is standard approach wedge loft?

Gap wedges are for flying the ball high on relatively short distances (100-130 yards), while approach wedges are meant to put the ball easily onto the green, if not super close to the hole.

## Do you need a 60 degree wedge?

For the average golfer, having both a 56-degree sand wedge and a 60-degree lob wedge is completely unnecessary. A 56 or 58-degree wedge should be a lot more versatile for most and is the highest wedge loft that should be in most bags. My sand wedge was used for longer shots and in the sand.

## What gaps should I have between wedges?

Fitting your gap wedge loft with the proper distance gaps will allow you to hit more full shots. The ideal loft separation between wedges is 4°-6°, resulting in 10-15 yard gaps, so your gap wedge degree should typically be 48°-52°, especially if your pitching wedge loft is 44° to 46°.
