A TaylorMade gap wedge is a Golf club that is designed to fill the gap between a pitching wedge and sand wedge. It has a higher loft than a pitching wedge and a lower loft than a sand wedge, making it ideal for shots that require more accuracy than a pitching wedge but less loft than a sand wedge. It is typically used to hit shots from around 100-120 yards.
