Vokey Design Gap Wedges

As pitching wedges are designed with lower lofts, the distance between pitching and sand wedges are increasing. Gap wedges are so named because they cover that gap in between, lowering the chances of being between clubs at wedge distances.

The Vokey gap wedge is designed with a low center of gravity for more consistent ball flight control. By adding the gap wedge to your set, you can achieve more versatility in your short game.

Gap Wedge Loft

Gap Wedge Loft

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°.

Having that gap wedge angle between your pitching and sand wedge loft leads to tighter shot dispersion and optimal distance and trajectory.

Considering gap wedge loft when building your wedge set will give you more variety in your shot and confidence in your game.

Gap Wedge Bounce

Gap Wedge Bounce

Vokey offeres two gap wedge bounce options (8°-12°) both featuring the F Grind sole for ultimate versatility. While the gap wedge distance is not as far as a pitching wedge, it can create enough trajectory to feel comfortable on in-between shots as well as full swings.

The low to mid gap wedge bounce makes it ideal for firmer turf conditions and tight lies, and for players with a shallower attack angle at impact.

Finding the right gap wedge bounce for your swing promotes more precise contact and distance control, enabling you to hit your window more consistently.
