Cleveland has always the set the standard for wedge design and the new CG 16 wedges will uphold that tradition. Based on the CG14 platform, the CG16 wedge is very similar however it boasts a larger head design as well as increased offset for added forgiveness and playability. Perhaps the greatest feature of the CG16 is how well it transitions from your short irons. The shallow cavity and large head inspires confidence on longer approach shots while still delivering that authentic Cleveland feel. For added versatility from any lie, the sole of the CG16 is slightly cambered and features Cleveland’s proven C sole design. In an effort to outsmart the USGA’s new groove rule, the CG16 features a laser milled face for a precise and consistent hitting surface that creates a high level of spin. The CG16 satin chrome wedges are available and are ready to ship!
