    A pitching wedge is a type of golf club used to make short distance, high altitude shots to overcome obstacles in the golf course. It is designed with a higher loft angle, usually around 45-50 degrees, which helps in propelling the ball into the air with precision. It is often used when a golfer is near the green and needs to hit the ball over sand or water hazards. The pitching wedge is an essential club in a golfer's bag, particularly for shots requiring a controlled, lofted approach.
