Cleveland Golf Tour Action Wedge Review

By Golf Wedge Solutions | Brand

Dec 21

The Cleveland Tour Action is a good wedge to have in your bag as a versatile, accurate, and dependable club. This wedge is designed to give you remarkable feel and performance without sacrificing design and style.

Features

The Cleveland Golf Tour Action Wedge is designed with professional tour player input. This wedge is built on a uniflex steel shaft to create better swing results for average golfers with slow golf swings. It also allows beginners and intermediate golfers room to improve by increasing in stiffness as their golf swing speed increases.

The loft options vary from 50 to 60 degrees. This refers to the angle of the face of the club relative to the shaft. The more loft a wedge has, the higher trajectory of the ball it hits.

With these loft options, you can use this club for a gap wedge, a sand wedge, or even a lob wedge. A gap wedge has 50 to 55 degrees, making it useful for both pitching and chipping around the green. This allows for an easy to control swing that provides enough height for the ball to land accurately.

The loft on a gap wedge makes it a great tool for playing both pitch and chip shots. A sand wedge is lofted around 54 to 58 degrees and works best for bunker play due to the high bounce. Sand wedges are also shorter than other clubs, which helps to put spin on the ball.

The lob wedge has the most loft at 60 degrees and is best for throwing the ball up very high from short distances. The most popular lofts for wedges are 56 degrees and 60 degrees.

Bounce is the angle of difference between the trailing edge of the sole in relation to the leading edge. This variation can be anywhere between 4 to 14 degrees. The higher angle translates to more bounce which means the head digs less when you strike the ball.

Low bounce is good for compact surfaces like short grass or hard-packed sand, while high bounce is better for loose conditions such as long grass or fluffy sand. This wedge features a standard mid-range bounce.

Grooves are the linear dents along the face of the club. These grooves give the wedge texture and create friction which impacts the spin on the ball. The more friction that is created when the ball contacts the clubface, the more chance for spin.

The most common groove shapes in compliance with USGA rules are the V shape and U or square shape. The Cleveland Golf Tour Action Wedge has precision milled grooves that deliver soft feel and control.
