Thank you for that! Always wondered what those were called..good topic. I finally got out to the range after almost 6 years and surprisingly hit my irons decent. I have also decided to put a few irons away. thinking of replacing the stronger lofted with my hybrids and going down to the 6i and down.
Exactly! That loft number is all you need. The fact that one OEM calls it an Approach Wedge and another calls it a Gap Wedge is irrelevant. For me, I need a 50 degree wedge; then I know what to do with it.
OEM’s are in business to sell golf clubs, period. If you think they have some altruistic motives as well, you have probably drunk the koolaid.
