Pitching wedges make great chippers from the fringe of the playing area and are very useful on bump-and-run approaches. These clubs are also commonly used for recovery from trouble and punching out of the trees.

As the end of an iron set, the pitching wedge acts like a 10-iron. They're in the normal loft progression of the set and are designed for use on full swings. The average distance a pitching wedge goes is between 90 and 120 yards.
