Wedge Guy: The science of selecting your wedges (www.golfwrx.com)

For over four decades now, iron lofts have been getting stronger and stronger, migrating downward to a point where a “typical” pitching wedge has 45 degrees of loft, and some are as strong as 42-43 degrees. Contrast that to the “standard” of the 1980s, when that club with a “P” on the bottom was usually 48 degrees or higher. Add to that the advent of other technologies to make clubs go further, and almost every golfer profile we review has a huge distance gap right in the middle of prime scoring range.
