What is a DW wedge because i've never heard of one?

i know there are lots of different types of wedges but ive never heard of a DW wegde.Can someone tell me what it stands for and what distance and situations it is supposed to be used in.


Back in the day in many "starter" sets they included a DW, and it was called a "Dual Wedge" and was intended as a cross between a standard Pitching Wedge and a Sand Wedge (merely a wider soled PW). But, as with any dual purpose implement, didn't do either very well.

Additional Details: I had one long ago, and it is NOT similar to a modern gap wedge in any way shape or form.


DW stands for dual wedge. It is similar to a modern day gap wedge.
