Find your truth

Know where you’re going
Launching your golf ball onto a soaring and accurate trajectory is one of the most satisfying feelings in golf. Most golfers are playing with a lie angle that makes this more difficult than it should be.
Find your lie >
1 degree makes a big difference
When your lie angle is out by just 1 degree, you can stray up to 10 feet wide of your target. That’s the difference between a birdie opportunity and a pressure putt to save par.
We’re here to help you hit better approach shots

Cleveland Smart Sole 4

One shot and you’re out (and you’re closer)
Nobody wants to be in a bunker any longer than necessary. The new Cleveland Smart Sole 4 Sand Wedge makes it easier to get out fast and accurately.

Build your best game

A longer tee shot means a shorter iron into the green, and we can all hit shorter irons more easily.
Most amateurs hit down on the ball with driver, creating what we call a negative ‘angle of attack’. This adds extra spin and reduces distance. To hit it further, what you want is a flatter or positive angle of attack, so you’re ‘hitting up’ on the ball.

Attack the fairway so you can hit the green
