You may have noticed that there’s an evolution of sorts taking place at Cleveland Golf. It wasn’t all that long ago that the company launched the MY CUSTOM WEDGE program which, to a reasonable extent, allows you to design your own custom Cleveland Wedge.
Let’s call the effort what it is – Cleveland is refocusing its attention on the short game.
The latest endeavor under that larger initiative is the soft launch of what Cleveland is calling its Tour Rack Wedges. It’s actually pretty interesting; for all of its success in the wedge business, Cleveland has kept the script pretty simple. The company has traditionally offered plenty of loft and bounce options with nearly every release, but hasn’t really offered much variety in the grind.
While Cleveland competitors like Vokey and Callaway have embraced the idea that different players have different needs when it comes to the way the club head interacts with the turf, Cleveland has focused on bounce, and nearly bounce alone as the distinguishing performance feature. That’s about to change, and it starts at the Cleveland Tour Rack.
Cleveland Golf Tour Rack Wedges
Cleveland is taking a very interesting approach with the new Tour Rack. While different offerings will almost certainly pop up throughout the season, they’ll be extremely limited (less than 300 of each piece), and that means they won’t last long. The wedge designs, grinds, and finishes come from the tour-proven and prototype designs found in the bags of Cleveland’s tour staff.
What’s most interesting, and to me anyway, exciting is that Cleveland won’t be making any huge advertising push around the Tour Rack program. You won’t even find details on its website. Releases will not only be limited, they’ll be unscheduled – at least for the first several releases.
Instead, Cleveland will distribute the wedges through select retailers and I’m certain they’re going to sell fast. If you’re not in-the-know, you probably won’t be able to get you hands on them.
