Cleveland Golf Introducing the New RTX Full-Face

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Cleveland Golf, one of the industry leaders in wedge design and innovation, is proud to announce the RTX Full-Face wedge. The all-new RTX Full-Face wedge officially launches in North America on June 11, 2021.

RTX Full-Face brings full-face grooves to the flagship RTX model. This new wedge model delivers maximum short game versatility for the most demanding short game shots.

The foundation of RTX Full-Face is a unique, low-density core that sits at the heart of the wedge. ZipCore makes you better by shifting the center of gravity, while also boosting High-Low MOI for more stability high and low on the wedge face. The result: more impacts on the sweet spot for more consistent spin, distance and feel on every shot.

Furthermore, RTX Full-Face features UltiZip grooves covering every last millimeter of the clubface for optimal spin performance, while a High-Toe profile allows the club to slide under the ball with confidence.

Similar to RTX ZipCore, the new RTX Full-Face features a new heat treatment process to boost durability and preserve the lifespan of the grooves to maintain spin performance round after round.

Cleveland is also expanding the Tour Rack program to make room for the new RTX Full-Face. Select from the standard Full-Face grind or add more versatility with a custom Relief Edge grind and then choose the leading edge that fits your playstyle.

Key Innovations Inside RTX Full-Face:

  • ZipCore: ZipCore shifts the center of gravity while raising MOI, adding spin, enhancing control, and boosting consistency on all your shots.
  • UltiZip Grooves: These grooves are sharper and deeper, delivering maximum spin performance. They bite harder, channel more debris, and they’re closer together for more groove contact on every shot.
  • Heat Treatment: A new heat treatment process increases ZipCore’s durability, delivering better performance over a longer period of time.
  • Full-Face Grooves: Our hosel-to-toe groove pattern covers every millimeter of the face in UltiZip Grooves. That means you are free to get creative and hit it off the toe when the shot calls for it without sacrificing spin.
  • High-Toe Profile: The optimal High-Toe profile lets you open the face with confidence. We made sure to give enough area for performance on challenging shots while maintaining a classic silhouette address.

RTX Full-Face wedges are offered in a wide variety of lofts. The RTX Full-Face Tour Satin wedge is offered in 50° – 60°, and 64°, while the RTX Full-Face Tour Rack wedges are offered in 56° – 60°, and 64°.

adidas Golf introduces Solarthon Footwear Inspired by Longest Day of the Year

CARLSBAD, CA – This is the time of year where golfers are chasing daylight, hoping to somehow slow down time so that they can maximize every minute out on the course. Motivated by this special time of year, we’re introducing Solarthon, an ultra-lightweight and comfortable footwear option that’s designed to keep feet feeling fresh all day long. To usher-in the summer season, we’re starting out by releasing this in a limited-edition colorway.

Solarthon was ultimately inspired by the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, where prolonged daylight motivates golfers to make the most of the extra time.

Solarthon features a full-length BOOST midsole for incredible comfort along with a spikeless Fishscale Traxion outsole to provide grip and stability when golfers need it most. We also included a film around the edges of the upper to make it water resistant and guard against that early morning dew when golfers first head out to the course. This limited edition features our PRIMEBLUE textile upper – a high-performance recycled yarn containing at least 50 percent Parley Ocean Plastic. It’s another example of how we are working towards our mission to help END PLASTIC WASTE.

Ensuring that golfers got the support and stability they needed to go along with all-day comfort was critical when designing the shoe. To make them ready for the course, we put in an external TPU heel counter along with additional reinforcements in the upper so that golfers will have that locked-in feeling both during the swing and as they walk the course.

This limited-edition gray, blue and white colorway will be available beginning June 15 while supplies last on adidas.com, the adidas app, and at select retailers worldwide.

For those that might miss out on the limited-edition version of Solarthon, we will be offering two in-line colorways in black/gold and gray/yellow beginning July 1. These additional colorways of the Solarthon also feature an upper made with recycled materials and come in additional size offerings to make this a great silhouette suitable for all golfers.

Give Dad An Unforgettable Experience With A Club Champion Gift Card

WILLOWBROOK, IL –  experience for golfers of any ability. For a limited time, get $75 toward Dad’s equipment purchase when you buy a gift card for $150 or more!

Ranked by Golf Digest among the 100 best club fitters eight times in a row, Club Champion’s unique coupling system allows them to combine any head and shaft together. The equipment available for testing is far more expansive than what’s offered at other fitting venues, and the variety allows their master fitters to find the perfect combination to optimize a golfer’s swing. Dad won’t have to wait to test the suggested clubs; he’ll get to hit the exact club that will be custom built for him.

“Our studios are candy stores for golfers,” said Club Champion founder, Nick Sherburne. “We go above and beyond what some PGA Tour professionals have access to. Dad will enjoy the data-driven fitting process and absolutely love the lower scores that come out of it.”

In addition to providing fittings from highly trained master fitters, Club Champion builds clubs in-house, unlike most other fitters. Variables such as swingweight, length, lie and flex alter performance; the experience and know-how combining these intricate parts together is what separates Club Champion from its competition.

Whether Dad is an avid golfer or a casual player, a gift card to Club Champion can help improve his game this Father’s Day. Don’t miss out on $75 toward Dad’s equipment purchase — that offer ends 6/20/21.
