You may have heard the phrase before: Gapping. What is it, and more crucially, why should you care?
GOLF.com’s Luke Kerr-Dineen explains that gapping, in a nutshell, is the distance between each of your clubs. Let’s say a golfer hits their 7-iron 150 yards, for instance, their 8-iron 140 yards, and their 6-iron 160 yards. That golfer’s gapping is about 10 yards, meaning there’s a 10-yard gap in between each of their clubs.
