Cleveland CG15 Wedge

Written ByColin Murray

Bounce: 10-Degrees
Loft: 52-Degrees

I had never owned a gap wedge before, but knew I needed to purchase one when to complete my new set since the “gap” between sand and PW has been tricky for me. As I did for my Cobra Trusty Rusty sand wedge, I consulted with the folks at Golf Galaxy on what to consider. One of the suggestions was the 52-degree Cleveland CG15, and the reason is because of the Zip Grooves the club has on the face. These grooves are Laser Milled, meaning just like it sounds: a laser is used to etch each groove to the exact conforming roughness limits, which optimizes ball-to-face action and maximizes spin under the Rules of Golf. This club is actually not legal on the PGA Tour, because pros would dominate greens by stopping the ball on a dime or being able to roll the ball back after impact. However, it IS legal for amateurs, and will be until 2024. Since we’re not anywhere near the pro tour, why not take every legal advantage you can get? (If you wish to be as legal as the pros though, the club is available without the Zip Grooves.) While I’ve yet to spin the ball backwards like the pros do, I can tell you this club literally chews balls, especially poorer crafted ones: after hitting a few shots, there are clearly “leftovers” from the ball after it’s been struck. As with most wedges, this is available in a few different colors, degrees, and bounce options. It usually runs about $120, but as of this writing it is currently on-sale at Golf Galaxy for $99. For the price range along with the quality of the club, I definitely recommend the CG15 with Zip Grooves. While I got this in a 52-degree gap wedge form, it is available in anywhere from a 48- up to a 60-degree wedge.

It’s a regular looking club, but you can get it in Satin Chrome or Black Pearl; I opted for the latter, and like the look of the darker club head. Not too fancy, but far from ugly.

This club is very smooth, and has been very accurate. It does stop on a dime, but I haven’t been able to spin the ball backwards yet (which is more my fault than the clubs’), which that’s the only thing keeping it from getting a 5.
Pricewww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
This club is currently on sale $20 off, which is a 10% discount from it’s regular price. There are plenty of wedges priced well over the average cost of $120, so even if it’s not on sale it’s still a great value with the benefits it provides.

Nothing fancy looking about the club, but it’s a wedge and does what you expect it to: gets high, stays on path, stops on a dime. It’s a very smooth swing and is difficult to miss-hit. A gap wedge is a very useful club, one I now recommend everyone have in their bag unless you’re very good at hitting half- and 3/4-shots with your PW, and the benefits this one provides make it a great purchase. If you’re only in need of a new sand or lob wedge however, this club in the 56-, 58-, or 60-degree options would also be wise.
