VER­DICT Wedge de­signer Roger Cleve­land so­licited in­put from elite play­ers, lead­ing to a fo­cus on im­prov­ing con­trol. The more com­pact shape’s straight lead­ing edge is eas­ier to ma­nip­u­late. A pro­gres­sively higher cen­tre of grav­ity as the lofts in­crease helps shots launch lower, and a new groove pat­tern adds a score­line near the lead­ing edge for ad­di­tional grab. One fi­nal pitch to the elite player: It’s forged from soft 1025c car­bon steel.

COM­MENTS (L) Nice thump in the bunker with a con­sis­tent amount of sand. (M) That heav­ier feel made for good turf interaction. (H) Con­tact was solid and con­trol­lable.
