SPOT THE DIFFERENCE
Several design traits help a LW behave differently than a SW
A sand wedge looks a lot like a lob wedge, but as Titleist wedge guru Bob Vokey explains, there's enough of a difference between the two to make one club a better option than the other in a variety of greenside situations.
SW The large flange on the sole of a sand wedge gives the club more momentum through heavy sand or grass.
LW The less-pronounced flange on the sole of a lob wedge slips more easily under your ball, which gets the ball up quickly on short, delicate shots to tight pin placements.
