Building on the success of its popular 588 Wedge line, Cleveland Golf is rolling out its new 588 Forged RTG wedge.

The 588 Forged RTG (Raw Tour Grind) model maintains the popular shape of Cleveland's 588 Forged predecessors, but this one features a dynamic grind on the back of the sole to reduce volume there. This dynamic grind allows golfers to open the face with a lower leading edge for better contact.

Made from 1025 carbon steel, the new wedge provides a soft feel and less vibration. The precision of Cleveland’s Laser Milled technology preserves the edges of the grooves, enhances the grooves' consistency and maximizes the grooves' allowable dimensions while conforming to USGA requirements. The RTG also features a True Temper Dynamic Gold shaft, a high-flex, tour-weight shaft designed for skilled players seeking a low, penetrating ball flight for enhanced control and accuracy.

The 588 Forged RTG wedge is available in lofts of 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 62, and 64 degrees of loft. All lofts except 62 and 64 degrees are also available in left-handed models. They are available in an Oil Quench finish and will rust over time, and carry a listed minimum advertised price $139.99 per club.
