So much more than distance

Launching it far off the tee is more effective when you’re accurate as well. The new Cleveland Launcher HB Turbo Driver checks both boxes, even on off-centre strikes.
Longer and straighter off the tee.
Higher ball speed across the face
Perfect centre strikes are rare, so having a face that is fast and far beyond the sweet spot helps you hit longer shots more often.
Launch it with ease
A low CoG helps you get the ball flying high and far. A unique crown step and superlight hosel push the Launcher HB Turbo’s CoG lower for increased launch and distance.
Your joy shouldn’t end with a long, straight drive. The new Cleveland Launcher HB Turbo Fairway and Halo Hybrid give you easier launch for a shorter, more enjoyable approach.
Go for the green in two
When a fairway is this long and this forgiving, you’ve got to go for the green. The new Turbo Fairway.
Don’t just get out of sticky situations
Go from trouble to scoring opportunity.
The new Halo Hybrid.
“But remember, if you have the wrong lie angle, they’re not easy. If you have the wrong shaft, they’re not easy. Make the most of this brand new technology and get a fitting.

Take full advantage
Don’t lose the advantages this technology gives you by playing something that isn’t fitted.

You’ve come this far,
now get closer

Easier shot placement
Every green is different. Size, slope, hardness, and flag location vary. Having added access to spin makes hitting your chosen spot on the green a lot easier.

The new Cleveland CBX 2 Wedge face has been created to give everyday golfers access to Tour-level spin.

More stopping power
14-foot difference
Rollout has been measured on a wedge that played 125 rounds versus a new wedge. The results showed that a fresh wedge can give you up to 14 feet more stopping power than an old one.
Stick it to the flag
At the end of a round, take your wedges to the practice green and check your shot dispersion.

Groove upon groove upon groove
Cleveland has layered their sharpest Tour Zip Grooves ever to give the CBX 2 Wedge a 4th generation Rotex Face, and give you easier access to added spin and control.
Are you a wedge wizard?
Better players want full spin when executing demanding open-face shots, and they want it from a more compact wedge design. For these players, there is the Cleveland RTX 4 Wedge.

Playing with an old wedge?
You could be selling yourself short. With today’s equipment even having a great wedge technique doesn’t mean you’re accessing all the spin and control you could be. Bring your wedges to the practice green with us, and let’s see where you are.

Fix par 3 mistakes

Many golfers base their approach to a par 3 on the ideal shot shape and then try to hit that shot. But using your natural shot shape to your advantage will help you hit more par 3 greens.
If you know you tend to push the ball a little with a slight fade, you can count on aiming slightly left of your target on the green, instead of trying to force a straight shot or draw.
Don’t use hazards as markers to aim because if you do hit it dead straight, you’re probably going to drop shots.
From the tee, identify the most dangerous hazard. Then think about how your natural shot shape pulls you into those hazards or helps you evade them. By understanding your swing you can set yourself up to minimise risk and hit the green more often.

Better course management
Swing improvement takes time, but good strategy brings immediate results. We’ll help you make better decisions on the golf course that will put you into more scoring positions.
