How we make a wedgeJohn Rae, the Vice President of Research & Development for Srixon/Cleveland Golf/XXIO in North America, was inspired to publish “The Wedge” as a unique offering to go deeper into one of the most important pieces of golf equipment for passionate and curious readers.

“At Cleveland Golf, we spend an extraordinary amount of time thinking about wedges,” Rae said. “When I say ‘we,’ I don’t mean myself and a few other people. ‘We’ are an army of leaders, golfers, engineers, designers, product testers and thinkers. We work together, day in and day out, to create the best looking, best performing, most important clubs in any golfer’s bag.

“Our No. 1 goal is to help golfers play better and shoot lower scores. In our continual effort to help educate and inform golfers around the world, we have dedicated the last year to commemorate some of our knowledge. We have taken what we know about how wedges perform, how they are made, and how to select the right ones, and compiled it into what we believe is the first in-depth, technical book about a specific golf club.”

The Wedge, By Cleveland Golf has been praised by many prominent golf equipment industry veterans:
