    Pitching wedge question

    Cleaning up clubs and noticed p wedge is gone, prob drunk left it on some course. Question is, I'm just gonna order one used off the Internet because I don't wanna spend $100 on a new one. However, no one sells single pitching wedges so what degree is a normal on a p and does my plan make sense. A buddy said just buy a 48 degree iron, it's the same thing

    Re: Pitching wedge question

    Standard loft for a pitching wedge is 48 degrees.

    Re: Pitching wedge question

    Mine is a 45 degree, but I bought it because it seems to fill the gap best for me between my 9 and sand wedge.

    Re: Pitching wedge question

    There is no standard anymore. If it is a "game-improvement" set it is more than likely 45/46*. If it is a "players" iron, it will be 47/48*

    Re: Pitching wedge question

    If your clubs didn't come from Walmart, you can likely look up the lofts of each club on the manufacturer's website.

    Re: Pitching wedge question

    Agreed about not being a standard degree of loft anymore. Never really was, but has really become a problem in the past 10 years (a pet peeve of mine and a conversation for a different time). If you tell us what set the wedge is from I can tell you exactly what degree of loft it had, at least when you bought it.

    Pitching wedges are harder to track down because they usually come as part of a set but there are clubs to be found. Check out a few of these sites and look at their swap shop. There might be something in there for you. You could even ask if someone on one of those sites has the specific club you're looking for - the regular users of the sites are a bit nuts about their golf clubs.

    golfwrx.com
    freegolfinfo.com
    thesandtrap.com

    There is always eBay as well, but it's a bit dicier (fakes, sniping and raw deals). Shouldn't be a problem for a single wedge, though.

    Re: Pitching wedge question

    Call around to a couple of golf courses and say you lost a wedge. Hopefully, someone lost the same brand.

    Golf courses tend to have hundreds of clubs in the lost and found no one ever claims.

    Re: Pitching wedge question

    Thanks for all the help, I'll just go to manufactures website and looks up the loft then buy similar.

    Re: Pitching wedge question

    Many years ago, I dropped mine at the practice green and it wasn't returned. Still can't believe it, but I got past it and realized that there are web-sites for this very reason. I was able to replace the club with a nearly exact replica. The only difference was the grip and serial number.
    It has been over 10 years so I don't remember the site, but I'm sure there are options.

    These guys here in the Twin Cities have lots of used wedges. Great place to find individual replacement clubs. They do internet now. See linky:
