If you’re like me, your short game is the weakest part of your game. Short pitches from tight lies are probably my least favorite shot in golf. I’ve toyed on and off with the 60 degree lob wedge–Titleist, Taylor Made, Callaway. But I haven’t found one that I really liked. Until now. It’s the new Cleveland 588 Dynamic Sole Grind (shown above in 56 degree). Not only is this club beautiful to look at, it’s very versatile. The bounce is constructed with a “V” like shape that allows the blade to slide through more easily when the face is open. But there’s still enough bounce on the club to help prevent totally chunking it. The biggest thing for me was finding a wedge with the right bounce–one that is forgiving in a variety of situations. I think I finally found it.

So far, I practiced with this club for one afternoon on the pitching hole. I found this club so easy to hit. It’s the kind of club that, within one swing, you start getting positive vibes. I even started hitting some amazing flop shots out of the rough. I’ve only hit this club on the range, though, so my review is limited. I haven’t had a chance to take it on the course or use it in the sand, but my feeling about this club is the most positive I’ve felt about a wedge in a long time. If all goes well, I may even replace my classic 56 degree Cleveland 588 wedge–which is over 15 years old–with the new DSG model!
