Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

A gap wedge is type of golf club with a loft angle in the club face between 50 and 53 degrees. This places it between the pitching wedge and sand wedge in terms of loft angle. Gap wedges allow you to pop the ball into the air quickly, creating a high approach shot to the green. You want the ball to hit the green and not roll or bounce much when using a gap wedge. Advanced golfers will create a high level of backspin on the ball with a gap wedge, attempting to curl the ball back toward the hole after landing on the green.
