HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – July 25, 2016 – CLEVELAND GOLF®, focused on Where Scoring Mattersand a global leader in wedge innovation since 1979, is proud to introduce new RTX®-3 wedges. This is the latest line of advanced, high-performance wedges from Cleveland, a brand which has sold more than 10 million wedges globally and garnered more than 350 Tour victories since 1988. RTX-3 wedges, available in a Blade (three finishes), Cavity Back, and Women’s Cavity Back model to suit a wide range of golfers, feature three key technologies proven to help you get closer to the hole than any wedge Cleveland Golf has ever made.

NEW Feel Balancing Technology. This patent-pending technology shifts the center of gravity closer to the center of the wedge face – the impact zone – to decrease vibration and maximize head stability at impact. By adding a microcavity inside the hosel and shortening the hosel, nine grams of mass are optimally redistributed in the head for a more centered CG location. This improves feel and tightens shot dispersion, giving you maximum control.

NEW V Sole Grinds. Three tour-proven grinds feature a V shape with more leading edge bounce to help get the club head through the turf faster at impact. This promotes crisper feel and more consistent head speed for increased spin and control. The V-LG () is Cleveland’s narrowest low bounce sole for maximum versatility, the V-MG (••) has mid bounce suitable for a wide range of players and turf conditions, and the V-FG (•••) is a forgiving full sole design with trailing edge relief.

NEW Rotex Face. Three innovations combine to maximize spin with more consistency. New Tour Zip Grooves have a deeper, narrower U shape with a sharp edge radius in all lofts to enhance contact across a wide variety of conditions. The advanced, 2-pass micro milling pattern increases friction and is directionally enhanced by loft: low lofts (46°- 52°) have a straighter pattern to accommodate full shots and high lofts (54°- 64°) have a more angled pattern to optimize open-face shots. Laser Milling precisely roughens the face surface to the conforming limit.

“After spending more than two years developing these wedges, Cleveland Golf is very proud with the finished product,” said John Rae, Vice President of Research & Development for Srixon / Cleveland Golf / XXIO. “Our testing proves the three key technologies in RTX-3 can help golfers get the ball closer to the hole, a tremendous benefit for any player that supports Cleveland Golf’s unmatched commitment to the short game.”

Scott Carlyle, Sr. Vice President – Global Marketing, added: “I’m privileged to have been involved in developing Cleveland Golf wedges for most of the past decade, and the RTX-3 represents some of the biggest steps we have taken in what we consider our three key wedge factors: shape, feel and spin performance.”
