Cleveland Golf announces launch of new 588 Forged RTG wedge

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- Cleveland Golf, the winners of more than 335 PGA Tour events, including 26 majors, is extremely pleased to announce the launch of the new 588 Forged RTG wedge.

The 588® Forged RTG wedge maintains the popular, tour-proven shape of Cleveland® Golf's 588® Forged wedge and now features a dynamic sole grind. The dynamic sole grind's material reduction on the back of the sole allows players to open the face with a lower leading edge for better contact on open-faced shots and maximum versatility around the green. The 588® Forged RTG wedge is available in an Oil Quench finish and will rust over time.

Made from 1025 carbon steel, the 588® Forged RTG wedge offers golfers an incredibly soft yet solid feel and less unwanted vibration. The advanced Precision Forging process ensures the highest level of part-to-part manufacturing consistency for supreme confidence and trust over every shot. The 588® Forged RTG wedge's Tour Zip Grooves™ and Laser Milled™ technology help to maximize spin in accordance with USGA regulations. The 588® Forged RTG wedge also features a True Temper Dynamic Gold shaft, a high-flex, tour-weight shaft designed for skilled players seeking a low, penetrating ball flight for optimum control and accuracy.

The 588® Forged RTG wedge is available in lofts of 52°, 54°, 56°, 58°, 60°, 62°, and 64°. All lofts except 62° and 64° are available in left-handed models.

Cleveland® Golf's 588® Forged RTG wedges are now shipping with a listed minimum advertised price (MAP) of $139.99. For more information on Cleveland® Golf/Srixon® and their products, please visit www.clevelandgolf.com and www.srixon.com.
