An approach wedge usually has around 50-52 degrees of loft. It is equivilent to a gap wedge. An average player could hit this around 100 yards and a pro would hit it around 10-20 yards longer.

It depends on how skilled and how strong you are.

With a pitching wedge men hit 80 -120 yard, women 50 - 80 yards

With a sand wedge men 60 - 100, women 40 -60.

These are averages for non professionals.
