You may have seen in some of our branding that we've changed one of our tag lines to "Handcrafted Short Game." That's because a new addition to our handcrafted lineup is set to be debuted this summer: Strokes Gained Wedges.
There were a couple of really good reasons for Strokes Gained to get into the wedge game. First of all, it was a topic of discussion that came up with customers, fans and supporters quite often... and we didn't bring it up. "When are you going to start making wedges?" was asked over and over. That had to be a sign. The final tipping point: Rohrs needed a new set of wedges.
After countless hours of education and research, as well as having ample opportunity to pick the brains of some of the legends in wedge and club building, we were ready to get wedges on the grinding wheel.
Like our putters, Strokes Gained Wedges are made of carbon steel, but rather than milling them, we decided to have them forged. The raw forged heads are hand ground to fit the golfer's swing and playing conditions. Hours of hands on time goes into each wedge; grinding, buffing and polishing, hand stamping, hand painting and assembly. Loft and lie is adjusted, and in just a few days, the new owner is gaining strokes on their foursome. We've worn out the R&D, had the wedges in play for a few months, got some Trackman comparison testing, and shipped out some prototypes and custom orders for testing across the U.S. Strokes Gained Wedges conform to the Rules of Golf and we'll start taking orders this summer. In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like to preorder, shoot us an email and we'll get right back to you!
Strokes Gained Wedges start at $400 custom stamped in a raw carbon steel finish, which will rust and patina, with a TrueTemper Dynamic Gold wedge shaft and standard Strokes Gained PURE grip. Other finish, shaft and grip options are available.
