What to Know Before Visiting Disney World
Visiting Florida’s Disney World promises to be a vacation to remember. With so many options for touring and big-action fun, it’s smart to gather as much intel as you can before you get to Orlando so you can make the most of your time.
Once you’ve decided to head to Disney World, one of your next decisions will be when you go. Be forewarned, however, that aside from the summer break, school breaks that are longer than one week are the busiest times of the year at Disney. Disney World shares information about planned refurbishments for the upcoming year, so you can look ahead to see when maintenance is scheduled for specific attractions. Time your visit accordingly if you have your heart set on seeing and doing specific things that could be closed when you get there.
A week-long stay is probably the minimum for most families who want to see and do a lot. If you want to go to other theme parks while you’re there, and if you want to have a day or two of relaxation, you’ll need more time.
Packages are popular for some, but you won’t be able to choose the park tickets you buy. Instead, buy your tickets individually from authorized third-party sellers, which gives you flexibility and helps you save money in many cases. Disney shares information about authorized resellers on its website. Purchasing multiday tickets will be cheaper than single-day tickets, especially if you buy for more than three days.
You can also make reservations for meals at Disney restaurants up to 180 days in advance of your vacation. These meals fill fast, so book as early as possible to get seats. You can also prepay for meals with the Disney Dining Plan, which enables you to use credits for meals at various restaurants.
Downtown Disney, Orlando, FL
Downtown Disney is a diner’s and shopper’s paradise with a pleasing mixture of shops and restaurants. Having recently been reinvented, Disney Springs is a delightful spot to spend at least a day exploring. Some of the shops and eateries are Disney-owned while others are third-party establishments that deserve a look.
Disney Springs includes four different districts. The Landing is a waterfront area with many Disney restaurants. The Marketplace is the iconic shopping district. Town Center features must-see shops and a sizable bar. The West Side is where you’ll find the traditional entertainment facilities that date back to the Downtown Disney days.
Epcot Center, Orlando
A day in Epcot Center will be one to remember for years. Epcot has both attractions and rides that will enthrall people of all ages. You can try a hang-glider simulator in Soarin’ Around the World, design a SimCar or take a boat ride at Frozen Ever After. Epcot’s World Showcase is your chance to tour countries around the world, experiencing entertainment and cuisine of each country in distinctive environments.
Universal Studio in Orlando
Universal Park Orlando is full of fun attractions that will delight everyone in your party as well. You’ll find thrill rides, tamer rides for little ones, water park rides, shows, dining and more.

Packages are available, which can include theme park tickets and hotel accommodations.

Cleveland 588 Tour Action Wedges
Cleveland 588 tour action wedges , user reviews.
This is one of the most versatile clubs I have ever used and it has totally revolutionized my short game. I can throw the ball way up in the air and stop it quickly, and because this club has almost no bounce, I can hit it confidently off of a tight lie as well as greenside rough. | Commercial Roofing
none so far
I bought a Cleveland 54* and 60* 588 after upgrading my irons this winter. They feel great, only have had them at the driving range, but they have a superb feeling. I think they will help improve my short game immensely.
Bought them used off of 3balls.com and they sent me brand spankin' new clubs.

I started playing with these wedges when I took the game up seriously 2 years ago. then I moved to 200 series Vokeys, followed by Mizuno MP series wedges. Vokeys come in last. Feel OK, Spin OK, sole design very good. Mizuno tie the 588's for best overall. Mizuno's feel the best by a long shot. Mizuno also have the lowest ball flight however they have the smallest sweet spot and don't impart that much spin. TA 588's have a high ball flight and impart massive amounts of spin on the ball. Unfortunately they lack a soft feel and don't have that great of a sole design. I like the TA 588 model because they impart massive spin on the ball. If you have a tendency to hit the ball thin than the high ball flight will help your game. I don't like the feel compared to Vokeys and Mizzy's. I don't like the sole design that much either, its really easy to come in fat. I love the price on these things, you can get these babies off Ebay for 25 dollars after shipping if you wait for a good auction.
I bought the 64 degree wedge last spring to try to add dimension to game and was worried that I wouldn't get chances to use it. Boy was I wrong. This is one of the most versatile clubs I have ever used and it has totally revolutionized my short game. I can throw the ball way up in the air and stop it quickly, and because this club has almost no bounce, I can hit it confidently off of a tight lie as well as greenside rough. I was concerned that the lack of bounce would make the club less useful out of thick rough or sand, but that has not been the case. I am pleasantly surprised that I can flop the ball out from greenside rough as well as use the club easily from medium to hard sand. Soft sand? More of a struggle due to the low bounce. But that's what my 56 degree (10 degree bounce) wedge is for. The great thing about this wedge is that it allows me to hit a huge variety of shots without having to tinker excessively with my stance or grip. Those are 2 fewer variables to consider when standing over the shot and thus more mental energy that can be expended on executing it. My only regret is not having bought a high lofted wedge sooner.
after playing with the 51' and 64' i had to get another one because these wedges have changed my short game for the better. i don't get to use the 64' as much, but the 56' gets pulled out regularly from my bag. especially smooth and effortless out of the bunker. it seems that vokey (titleist in general)are more pricey and hence i went with the cleveland but have no regrets--apart from the tacky grip preferring cords even for the wedges. i now have a 60' lob and may part with the 64' gunmetal. i haven't tried any vokeys so to be fair i cannot compare. but at present my ignorance is bliss!!
tzoid sand wedge
I had a mental lapse about 2 months ago and left my Mizuno MpT 56 deg next to a sand trap. I went back after 2 holes to get it .... you know the rest. I had a round planned for the next morning but I knew I'd have a bad round without my SW. I hit 90% of my chips with it. I opted to go to a Golf Show ,that was in town that weekend, early Sunday and get one. Guess which booth only had demo clubs but nothing for sale? That's right; Mizuno. Pretty dumb at a Golf Show where thousands of dollars are spent per hour. I walked right over to the Cleveland tent and left 5 minutes later with the 588. Great feel. Great spin. I hope I lose my 51 and 60 deg Mizunos soon.
In that Cleveland is smart enogh to have cliubs for sale at a golf show, I'd say GREAT customer service.
Adams Wedge set, Mizuno MpT 56
Won this off of Ebay as of recent. Put it to use ASAP, and am loving it. The weight is perfect, makes getting under the ball much easier. The weight just feels right to create a good tempo on those pitch shots. I've gotten my ball out of every kind of rough and sand bunker so far without any problems. Hitting the ball reminds of a sensation of marbles colliding. The contact is very soft, but you can feel how hard you hit the ball, and where you hit it, great feedback. I can lower or raise my trajectories on demand with this club, or choose to roll it further or make it stop on a dime. This wedge has madea big impression on me, and I will be getting a 60º lob wedge shortly.

Fantastic clubs. dont know why these club are the best. perhaps its the weighting and balance, but much more confidence in these than titleist or nike.
Nike 56 Titleist Vokey 400 Series, 52, 56, 60
Just treated myself to a 56 degree RTG sand wedge - Couldn't never get on with the X14 wedge from my set and the old Haig Ultra blade I replaced it with is really due for retirement (it's 30 years old if it's a day). I did have a 51 degree RTG for a while and that had just begun to rust up nicely before I lost it and the feel on that club was lovely (lost it at Abbotsley GC during October 2004 and no-one handed it in to the club house - I hope whichever rotter has it has developed a case of the shanks - YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE !!!). The feel that this new 56 degree wedge has is just as I remember it. This club has (I think) 14 degrees of bounce so is quite useless from tight grass lies but when I hopped into a bunker for some impromptue practice it was just great. The 588 is just one of those classic wedge shapes when its sat behind a ball. For my own personal preference I'd like to see a bit more of a rounded leading edge on a sand iron but that would be my only gripe about this club. I love the feel of the Cleveland grip and combined with the stiff flex shaft and the beautiful feel on the face of the club its easy to make great shots from close to the green. This club really rips into balls and puts loads of check on them. Will be great fun in the summer on receptive greens. I think this club would be a bit intimidating for the higher handicap players as its got quite a small head and the ground heel and toe profiles could lead to some set up issues, but for anyone who's serious about their short games these clubs are true winners. As good as the 200 series Titleist Vokey? I'd say so.

I may be the only person left in the world that plays this magnificent wedge, as evidenced by the lack of catagory heading for it. But this is for all the 588 junkies...the 485 (LW) has a slightly rounded leading edge which makes it very workable with the face closed or open. I do have the 588 SW and am thrilled with it, but the only reason I don't play the 485 is the physical lack of them. The smaller head may also be less appealing to the higher handicapper.....a true players wedge.

Cleveland 588 wedges: editor review.
Pros: Great feel and a great shape from address.
Cons: The graphics are very busy on the back of the wedge and grip.
Overall: The 588 Forged Wedges have a great look that can be customized by each golfer through My Custom Wedge on Cleveland’s website. They also have outstanding feel with several bounce options to fit each golfer and their varying needs.
Amazing is the easiest way to sum it up. Cleveland offers a wide variety of bounce options to help with our varying needs. I play a wide variety of shots with my wedges and every shot I attempted these wedges executed to perfection. Out of the sand, especially, and fairway bunkers, these are fantastic. I have found that the spin off of these wedges is up there with anything on the market today.
Looks and Feel
I went with the Black Pearl finish on my wedges and it is fantastic. It has a bit of shine to it but has a muted face due to the milling on the face. After three weeks of play, it does show some wear on the face and sole however the finish has stood up very well.
The wedge head itself has a very round profile which suits my eye perfectly. The only negative I have found with these wedges is in the looks department, however. The graphics on these wedges are just to busy for my tastes. Cleveland should have gone simple instead of putting so many logos and writing on the wedge.
I do not need to see laser milled outlining the faces of my wedges. I prefer a nice clean look and this somewhat takes away form an otherwise great looking wedge. This however can be customized through the Cleveland My Custom Wedge program as well.
The wedges are forged from 1025 Carbon Steel, which provides great feel. The area the Cleveland 588 really shines is the Tour Concept Shaft. They feel fantastic and really help keep the ball flight down a touch but they increase spin at the same time. It is a great alternative to the Dynamic Gold Spinner.
If you are looking for a wedge that you can hit almost any shot with and has an outstanding look then the Cleveland 588 should be on the top of your list. Cleveland has done a fantastic job bringing custom options to the average consumer. It is a trend the wedge industry is starting and it is something that will be a huge help in finding the “perfect” wedge.

Liked all the ideas surrounding the 588 series 2 60′ wedge. Changed the grip for a midsize and cannot stop shankiing. Centre of gravity is far to close to the hosel. Tried different swings also stand furthur away,even had the club bent flatter then more upright,grip it shorter, make sure hips are cleared and still hit it a inch from the hosel no matter what I did I would shank at least one in five . Worst club I have had anything to do with.
Sep 20, 2015 at 6:32 pm
hey greg, you sure its not your technique that you are shanking? LOL. always the arrow.
Jun 9, 2016 at 10:22 am
I had the exact same problem. 100% agree with this comment. I have an SM5, older Tour Action from 2001, new TM PSI forged. This was the only club I have ever had this issue.
Apr 18, 2013 at 3:15 pm
Got two (56 and 60 degree) the other day from my pro shop. they went fro $75 each. excellent wedges with a solid feel. a little excessive detailing on the back of the club but i think Cleveland did a great job with these wedges. I really enjoyed the stock tour concept shafts (by true temper). A point to note is that after a few rounds with these wedges u might notice that the laser milling, especially at heavy contact area on the club face, begins to wear off. not sure what cleveland had to say about this but there are forums saying that the laser milling is actually not meant to be seen. But anyway i didnt really notice much difference with the spin (or maybe im just not good enoug to notice) however i feel that overall they are very good wedges and , for the price i got it, was well worth it.

I am really happy with my 588 Forged wedges and just picked up another one for a clearance price of $99.95.
Dec 29, 2012 at 7:49 pm
I used to pay the CG15s. The only complaint with the new 588 is the 54 degree is heavier than my 15. I think I’m going to look at vokey as they’re the same weight as the old cg15s.
Aug 24, 2012 at 12:12 am
I had an old 588 57 sand wedge, regretted selling it. Just bought an old 588 53 wedge, love it with PX 6.0. Hope the new model is as great as the old Classic! ps love my DST 17 hi launch, 64 Diamana ! Wow!!
Aug 12, 2012 at 12:36 am
Cleveland hit a homerun when take a vokey wedge and gave the head a slightly smushy/angled tilt to it. Vokey wedges and Cleveland wedges rock ! Embrace the smush!
Aug 10, 2012 at 5:17 pm
While they may have improved the manufacturing process. There is nothing different about this wedge. Its the same chassis they’ve been using for the past 3 wedge lines. The company’s spiraling down the toilet so they’re back pedalling to their backbone products to try and right the ship. I give them another 2 years before srixon dumps them.
Aug 6, 2012 at 1:08 am
i never understood why any club manufacturer would produce chrome wedges. i never understood why anyone would buy one. i just don’t understand many things.
Jul 25, 2012 at 12:29 pm
I have played Cleveland 588’s for 4 seasons, before recently switching to Edel wedges. I wont compare the 2, because the edels are custom fitted, custom ground, etc etc, and I have been getting more spin from them, even with conforming grooves. Bu8t I do not have a single bad word to say about the 588’s. Great feel, great profile, great performance. Just solid all around wedges.
I still prefer my 588 Sand Wedge to my Edel Sand wedge though, but that may be because im used to its feel in the sand. Bunker shots arent generally something I get to play more than 2-3 times a round, aside from the practice greenside bunkers. Overall, i would reccomend these clubs to anyone.
Jul 24, 2012 at 5:44 pm
Do the satin finish wedges rust? If not, are they going to release this in raw like the old 588s?

In-Depth Review: Titleist Vokey SM6 Wedges
Pros: A new, progressive CG design helps the low-lofted wedges fly a few yards farther, and improves the feel of the high-lofted wedges while boosting consistency. With lofts from 46-62 degrees and five distinct grinds, most golfers will be able to find an SM6 wedge that works for them.
Cons: At $149, they’re $20 more expensive than SM5 models.
Who they’re for: All golfers.
- Price: $149 (MAP)
- Lofts: 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 62
- Grinds: F (46-56), S (54-60), M (54-62), L (58-60), K (58-60)
- Finishes: Tour Chrome (plated), Steel Gray (plated) and Jet Black (QPQ)
- Stock Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold S200
- Construction: Cast (8620 carbon steel)
A glance at Vokey’s new SM6 wedges reveals that something is different. Some golfers will understand the science of why the wedges look like they do, but many won’t. Unlike a lot of new golf club technologies, however, golfers won’t need to be in the know to be impressed. I don’t talk about the “cool factor” in many of my reviews, but the SM6 wedges certainly have it.
Those curves on the back of the SM6 wedges? They create what’s called a progressive center of gravity (CG), which means the weighting of the SM6 wedges varies based on loft. The lowest-lofted SM6 wedges (46-52 degrees) have the lowest CG, the mid-lofted wedges (54, 56 degrees) have a higher CG and the highest-lofted wedges (58-62 degrees) have the highest CG. The three different CG positions match the desired impact area on each wedge’s club face — lower-lofted wedges are generally contacted lower on the face, while higher-lofted wedges are generally contacted higher on the face — to improve trajectory, feel and consistency.
Low-Lofted SM6 Wedges
If you’ve ever wished your Vokey 46-, 48-, 50- or 52-degree wedge flew a little farther, SM6 models will. Vokey says the low-lofted SM6 wedges create about 1.5 mph more ball speed and 3-4 yards more distance, and I buy their claim after testing SM6 wedges that were built to the same specs as my SM5 models on Foresight GC2.
“Distance doesn’t matter with wedges,” you might be saying, and you’re correct in theory. Who cares if your gap wedge goes 110 or 113 yards, as long as you hit it a consistent distance. That’s not the issue, though. Improvements in golf equipment technology have irons flying farther than they ever have, which means more golfers need a club — and maybe even two clubs — between 46-and-52 degrees to bridge the gap between their shortest iron and mid-or-high-lofted wedge.
I’m one of those golfers who needs two wedges to fill the gap. I use a 9 iron that measures 41 degrees and carries about 150 yards. I also use a 54-degree wedge (bent to 55 degrees) that carries about 105 yards. I fill the gap with a 46-degree wedge (bent to 45 degrees) that carries about 135 yards. I prefer its look and feel to the pitching wedge from my iron set because I can vary trajectory more easily with it. I also carry a 50-degree wedge that carries about 120 yards.
An issue I had with the SM5 wedges (46-08 F Grind, 50-08 F Grind) is the same one I’ve always had with other low-lofted wedges. Many times when I tried to hit them a little harder to make them go a few yards farther, they didn’t. Shots often just went higher due to excess spin. I’ve seen countless golfers experience this problem, especially better players.
The biggest improvement to the low-lofted SM6 wedges is that they create a more iron-like ball flight. It’s slight, but their faster trajectory is a little bit less likely to balloon. To me, they also feel slightly softer than the SM5’s at impact.
Probably just as important as the new progressive CG design of the low-lofted SM6 wedges is something that isn’t new — the different bounce options Vokey offers in its 50- and 52-degree wedges. Both the 50- and 52-degree models are offered in F Grinds with effective bounce angles of 8 and 12 degrees. Most manufacturers offer multiple bounce options in their mid- and high-lofted models, but it’s rare to see two different options in low-lofted models.
In July 2015, I traveled to Titleist’s Oceanside, California Test Facility to learn more about the company’s 716 iron line. During the downtime, Titleist offered me an opportunity to be fit for SM5 wedges by the man himself, Bob Vokey. My steeper angle of attack theoretically made me a better fit for the 50-12 F Grind (a 50-degree wedge with 12 degrees of effective bounce), but my results were better with the 50-08 F Grind.
Vokey explained that the reduced bounce helped me contact the ball slightly higher on the face, and that improved my ball flight. That moment cemented how important it is for golfers to be fit for not just their lob wedge, but for as many of their wedges as possible.
Mid-Lofted SM6 Wedges
The mid-lofted SM6 wedges (54 and 56 degrees) are most similar to the SM5 models, as they do not have the weight pads used in the low-lofted and high-lofted wedges. That’s because, according to Vokey representatives, the CG of the mid-lofted wedges was pretty much where it needed to be.
For that reason, the biggest change golfers will notice if they switch to an SM6 from an SM5 is the shaping. Unlike the low-lofted SM6 wedges, which are significantly smaller than SM5 models and have shorter hosels, the mid-lofted SM6 wedges are roughly the same size. There’s no denying, however, that the shaping of the SM6 wedges gives them a more streamlined look. Their toes are more rounded, their top lines are thinner and their par area, the part of a wedge’s top line that conjoins with the hosel, blends more seamlessly.
I’ve given my SM5 and SM6 54-14 F Grind wedges (bent to 55 degrees) to several golfers and had them hit shots with each one to see if they could notice a different in feel. Some told me the SM6 felt softer, while others told me the SM5 felt softer. For that reason, its hard to make an absolute statement about a change in feel in the mid-lofted wedges. I’ve had a few golfers tell me the SM5 wedges look better at address, but many more have preferred the look of the SM6.
Before moving on to the high-lofted wedges, I want to point out two more things; one is specific to the mid-lofted models, one that is not.
SM6 wedges use Vokey’s new TX4 grooves that feature a parallel face texture to increase spin and consistency.
- Like SM5 models, both the 54 and 56 are available in three different grinds (F, S and M). For the SM6 line, however, the popular M Grind has 2 degrees less effective bounce to make it more versatile from a wider variety of lies.
- All SM6 wedges also feature Vokey’s new TX4 grooves, which use a machine-milled, parallel face texture that Titleist says can increase consistency and sharpens groove edges to add as much as 200 rpm of spin. The SM6 wedges also use the same progressive groove design as the SM5 wedges. The lower-lofted wedges (46-54) use narrower, deeper grooves to displace more debris on square-face shots, while higher-lofted wedges (56-62) use shallower grooves that create more friction on open-face shots.
High-Lofted SM6 Wedges
With a slightly higher CG, the high-lofted SM6 wedges do seem to launch shots slightly lower and with a little more spin than SM5 models, and that’s exactly what most better players want their high-lofted wedges to do. But the change likely won’t be noticed by the majority of golfers. What they will notice, however, is how much better the high-lofted SM6 wedges feel at impact. Every golfer has experienced the “clank” that occurs when a wedge shot is hit too high on the face, or toward the heel or toe at impact. With the high-lofted SM6 wedges, those shots felt softer and more solid.
Due to their higher CG, the high-lofted wedges also seemed to be a little more consistent in my testing on Foresight. Especially when hitting 50-yard shots, I saw that the 60-degree SM6 M Grind wedge seemed to land a little closer my target on mishits. Sometimes it flew 1-2 yards farther than I expected when I contacted a shot slightly on the toe or the heel; sometimes shots just held their line just a little bit better. The difference is small, but can make an difference. We’re all better at making 6-foot putts than we are 9-footers, aren’t we?
As for shaping, the new wedges don’t look the same as the SM5’s at address. They appear slightly larger, and have the same general appearance as the other wedges in the new line.
At Address: A Vokey SM6 lob wedge (60-08 M Grind)
No discussion of a Vokey high-lofted wedge is complete without mentioning their four distinct sole grinds, which Team Vokey continues to tweak based on its work with Tour players, as well as average golfers. Despite the several improvements to the new wedges, the grinds continue to be one of their main selling points. That’s how powerful using the proper sole grind can be.
Again, it’s best to get fitted, but if you can’t, the chart and list below offers a few starting points.
- If you struggle from the sand, try the K Grind (available in 58, 60). It has the widest sole of any Vokey wedge, and can work well for golfers with steep attack angles. Compared to SM5 K Grind wedges, it has 1-degree more effective bounce to help the wedge better resist digging on square-face shots.
- If you play courses with extremely firm turf conditions, try the L Grind (available in 58, 60). It has the lowest effective bounce (4 degrees), and slightly more camber than SM5 models to goflers resist digging.
- The M Grind (available in 54, 56, 58, 60, 62) will work best for golfers who like to manipulate the face open or closed, while the S Grind (available in 54, 56, 58, 60, 62) is better for golfers who tend to play more square-faced shots. The 58 and 60-degree S Grind wedges have 3-degrees more bounce than SM5 models.
Vokey Custom Options
As noted above, I don’t use a standard SM5 wedge. At Oceanside, Vokey fit me for a V-Grind that’s offered through the company’s Hand Ground Program. According to Titleist representatives, Hand Ground SM6 wedges, which make available Tour-only grinds and enhanced customization options — will be released to the public at a later date.
Do I really need a V-Grind wedge? I must admit, with a little practice I could probably use the SM6 M Grind and hit all the shots I need to hit. But I liked the performance V Grind enough to pay the extra money for it (Hand Ground wedges start at $350 each).
For golfers not willing to pay that much for a completely custom wedge, Vokey offers more affordable custom options to standard SM6 wedges through its WedgeWorks Services . Through the program, golfers can customize the shafts, grips, shaft bands, ferrules, stampings and paintfill of their wedges. I’ve had several wedges customized through WedgeWorks, and the work is always A++.
Should you Upgrade?
If you’re currently using a set of properly fit SM5 wedges, your transition from them to the SM6 models should be an easy one. Many golfers will see certain benefits from the newer wedges, as I did, but they may or may not warrant an immediate upgrade, especially if their grooves are still fresh.
An aside about buying wedges: Many tournament players purchase two sets of wedges at a time. They practice with one set and use another on the golf course, which keeps their grooves as fresh as possible for tournaments. While it doubles cost, it helps their gamer wedges last longer and adds peace of mind that they’re getting the best possible performance from their wedges on the course.
What else do you want to know? I’ll do my best to answer your questions in the comments section.
Review: Callaway MD3 Milled wedges
Pros : Options are plentiful with the MD3 Milled wedges. There are three different sole grinds, two finishes and a wide range of lofts (46-60 degrees). Low-lofted, mid-lofted and high-lofted wedges are each equipped with a distinct groove design that’s tailored to shot-specific needs.
Cons : Wedge heads are not able to be customized with stampings, engravings or paint fill. Unlike Callaway’s Mack Daddy 2 wedges , the MD3 Milled are not forged.
Who they’re for: Anyone can play the MD3 Milled wedges, especially with the addition of the wider-soled “W Grind.”
- Lofts available: 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60 degrees
- Grinds: S Grind (46-60), W Grind (54-60), C Grind (56-60)
- Finishes: Matte Black (46-60) and Satin Chrome (46-60)
- Price: $129.99
- Stock Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold S300
New and improved are popular terms in the golf equipment world, but generally there’s more emphasis on the “new” part than the “improved” part. Fortunately, what’s new about Callaway’s MD3 Milled wedges also offers noticeable improvements over previous models from the company.
So what’s new and improved about the MD3 Milled wedges? Here are five things to know about them.
Throwing weight around
Each MD3 Milled wedge has four colored ports in its rear cavity. Weight was removed from those areas to give the wedges a higher-toe design that moves the center of gravity (CG) higher for a slightly lower launch and more spin — exactly what the best golfers want from their wedge shots.
For me, it wasn’t the fact I could hit the 58.9 S Grind with as much spin as I wanted; it was the ease with which I was able to alter the trajectory. With the 54.12 W Grind, I had no problem hitting the ball high to front pin locations, or flighting shots that minimized the effect of the wind.
All 54- and 56-degree (pictured) MD3 Wedges have Callaway’s 20V grooves.
With the MD3 Milled, Callaway offers three specific groove patterns to optimize launch and spin based on the loft of the wedge. Pitching and gap wedges (46-52 degrees) have Callaway’s 30V grooves, which have 30-degree side walls that perform best on the more aggressive, downward strikes that are common with the clubs. Mid-lofted wedges (54-56 degrees) use Callaway’s 20V grooves, which have 20-degree side walls that excel on bunker shots and full swings. Lob wedges (58-60 degrees) have Callaway’s 5V grooves, which create maximum spin on shots around the green.
In testing, I was most impressed with the 5V groove, which does a remarkable job moving additional moisture and debris away from the ball. That came in quite handy when navigating juicy lies around the green.
More refined grinds
The MD3 wedges are available in three distinct sole grinds: S Grind, C Grind and W Grind. My thoughts on each are below.
S Grind: The “S” is the most versatile of the three available grinds. I’m tempted to say that S stands for “Swiss Army Knife,” as there was no shot I couldn’t hit with the grind. It was the most consistent grind on full swings from the fairway and tight lies, and more than held its own out of both light and deep rough. There’s no doubt that the S Grind will fit the majority players, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with bagging the S Grind in two, three or four different wedges, depending on your bag setup.
C Grind: This grind offers more heel and toe relief than the S Grind, creating an effectively thinner sole that excels in firmer conditions. While it doesn’t play nice with steep angles of attack, the additional relief in both the heel and toe did keep the head moving through the rough and allowed the leading edge to sit nicely under the ball at address — especially on open-faced shots. That adds versatility for golfers who hit a lot of specialty shots around the green.
W Grind: The W Grind is ideal for bunker play, messy lies and players with steep attack angles. It was my favorite grind, because it seemed to get better the closer I got to the hole. Out of both light and deep rough, the W Grind operated like one of those old ginsu knives, but without the lame sales pitch. Getting up and down from gnarly lies around the green felt entirely too easy. And if the lie was clean and the turf was on the softer side, I had no problem hitting aggressive shots with a square or opened club face because I knew the wider sole would resist digging. Especially on less-than-full shots from inside 100 yards, the W Grind quickly earned the go-to spot in my bag.
The MD3 Milled’s Matte Black finish (above) will wear and rust over time, while the Satin Chrome, which is plated, will show less wear but produce slightly more glare on sunny days.
Although the MD3 Milled wedges aren’t forged — they’re cast from 8620 steel — both finishes felt fantastic with an edge in softness going to the Matte Black.
Looks to get emotional about
At Address: A 58-degree S Grind.
Last but not least, the MD3 Milled are an awesome choice if you favor a teardrop shape at address. In that regard, the MD3 Milled approaches aesthetic perfection. The slightly raised toe and marginally straighter leading edge, compared to previous models, gives the wedge a clean look that balances angular lines with subtle curves.
Notice the added sole curvature visible at address in this 56-degree wedge, which is a result of its C Grind.
For all the time we spend looking at the face of the wedge, many golfers are concerned about the appearance of the club as it sits in the bag. Some will call the cavity of the MD3 Milled is a bit gaudy, but others will see the four luminescent ports and green accents as fun and recognizable.
The W Grind will work best for golfers who play golf in soft conditions, as well as those looking for improved sand play.
The MD3 Milled are the best production wedges Callaway has released in the past decade for a variety of reasons. At $129.99, the three distinct grinds and two finish options should cover the needs of most interested golfers. The shaping of the wedges is also so beautiful at address, and I found them to look and feel as good as leading wedge models.
The lack of custom options — stampings, paintfill, etc — isn’t a deal breaker, but does leave some room for improvement. At the end of the day, however, wedges should judged on how they perform. With an improved weighting scheme and loft-specific grooves, Callaway put performance first with the MD3 Milled and it won’t go unnoticed.
Review: 4 things to know about Ping’s Glide wedges
Designing a wedge is complicated, but falling in love with one is simple. And I fell hard for Ping’s new Glide wedges within a matter of weeks, a feeling that hasn’t faded in the months since. I found that there’s simply no shot I can’t pull off with a Glide wedge, and fitting one to your game is as simple as it gets in today’s complex wedge marketplace.
Are you shopping for a new wedge? Here are four things to know about Ping’s Glide.
The Simple (and Awesome) Sole Grinds
The Glide wedges are offered in three different “sole grinds,” a term that describes the shape of the sole of the club. Choosing the best sole grind for your game is the most important part of buying a new wedge. Choose the right one, and you’ll gain more confidence around the green. Choose the wrong one, and you’ll feel like you’re running a race in shoes that don’t fit.
Some sole grinds are more versatile than others, and Ping’s Standard Sole , or SS Grind, on its Glide wedges is one of the most versatile grinds on the market.
I tested four SS Grind wedges (47, 52, 56 and 60 degrees) in several different areas of the country with different turf conditions — from the deserts of Arizona to the plush turf of Michigan — and didn’t once wish I had a different grind.
Ping’s WS Grind has a wider sole than the company’s other grinds, and for that reason it doesn’t “dig” as much.
The Glide wedges are also available in a Wide Sole , or WS Grind, which is for golfers who play golf courses with very soft conditions or those who have steeper angles of attack (AoA). For those not familiar with advanced golf swing lingo, a steep AoA generally leads to big divots.
On the other end of the spectrum is the Thin Sole , or TS Grind, which is for one of three kinds of golfers:
- Those who play courses with very firm conditions
- Those who have a very shallow AoA.
- Those who want maximum versatility around the greens, as the TS Grind has the narrowest sole and the lowest effective bounce.
The three grinds are very distinct, so if you test all three there’s little chance that you’ll choose the wrong one. Trust your gut, but there’s a high probability that you’ll prefer the SS Grind.
The Soft Feel (and Forgiveness)
Cast wedges like the Glide can scare away golfers who are particular to the feel of forged wedges. And it’s true that there are cast wedges on the market that don’t feel great — but the Glide wedges aren’t one of them.
The Glide wedges are cast from a 431 stainless steel that’s softer than the 17-4 stainless steel used to make their predecessors, Ping’s Tour Gorge wedges. They also have a redesigned thermoplastic elastomer Custom Tuning Port (CTP) that is positioned behind the impact area to dull bad vibes.
The biggest benefit of the Glide’s cast, multi-material construction, however, is not feel but forgiveness. Some golfers might say that they’re not looking for increased forgiveness in a wedge, but I say, “Why not?” The Glide wedges are roughly the same size and shape of other leading wedges at address, with the benefit of a bit of perimeter weighting that you won’t notice until you need it.
At address: The Glide wedges have a traditional profile and minimal offset.
When I hit a shot slightly off center with the Glide wedges — particularly the 47- and 52-degree models — the results were slightly better than the blade-styled wedges I’ve played in the past.
Impressive Custom Options
A stock 54-degree Glide wedge has a swing weight of D3.
Remember the Custom Tuning Port (CTP) I mentioned a few paragraphs ago? It serves the dual purpose of improving the feel of Ping’s irons and wedges, and also helps the company dial in the swing weight of custom orders.
Ping made the Glide’s swing weight, a measurement of the balance point of a golf club, lighter than previous models. The stock 60-degree model, for example, has a swing weight of D4. The decision was based on a study of golf’s greatest wedge players, which showed that many of them used lob wedges that were often lighter than the standard D5-D6 swing weight.
I wanted to try lighter wedges, too, so I made a difficult request. At 0.5 inches over standard, which usually pushes swing weight into the D6-D9 range, I wanted my wedges to have a swing weight of D3. Ping nailed it.
Ping’s famous WRX department (no relation) can handle a variety of custom requests. For more information, contact Ping.
A Hands-Down Approach
The Glide grooves are narrower and deeper at lower lofts to create more consistency on straight-faced shots, and wider and more shallow at higher lofts to create more greenside spin.
As I mentioned in my tech story on the Glide wedges that was published January , Ping made small tweaks to nearly every aspect of the new wedges. Some were subtle, such as the loft-optimized grooves and chrome-plated finish that both create slightly more spin. Others were more noticeable, such as a new CFS wedge shaft and Ping’s Dylawedge grip, which is 0.75 inches longer than a standard grip to encourage golfers to “choke down” on the club for more control.
The takeaway for interested buyers? With the Glide wedges, Ping covered all its bases and created a well-rounded line that offers golfers plenty of loft and grind options without overly complicating the fitting process. Maybe you won’t like the Glide wedges as much as I do, but harsh criticism of the Glide wedges will be rooted in personal preference — not performance.
If you’re looking for a wedge that achieves high marks in every meaningful category — looks, feel, spin and versatility — these are one of your top choices. And if you like the sound of a little extra forgiveness, the Glide is it.

The Cleveland 588 Wedge Review: An Updated Classic
You might want to take a look at the new Forged Cleveland 588 wedge if you’ve been searching for a wedge that offers classic looks and superb short-game performance. Wedges have long been one of Cleveland Golf’s specialties. In fact, this club has been the most popular wedge in golfing history.
But, has the company hit another home run with its new forged version of this wedge, or should you skip this one and go with some other club? To help you make an informed decision, I’ll describe the features of this wedge and share my thoughts on how it plays.
We’ve reviewed several Cleveland wedges on this website, and overall they’ve been excellent. But, the funny thing is, they may all have been trying to live up to the standard set by various versions of the Cleveland 588 wedge throughout the years.
This wedge is the top-ranked, No. 1 wedge of all time. No other club manufacturer’s wedge can make that claim. And because of this legacy, you can bet every change to the club has been exhaustively tested. It’s a certainty that the updates in this new version weren’t made lightly.
The new Forged version of the wedge is a technologically-advanced update of the most attractive, versatile, successful wedge design ever developed. The original model of the wedge has long been a measuring stick for the performance of every wedge, with people often wondering how a club they’re considering measures up against the Cleveland 588 wedge. And now, has Cleveland raised the bar again by re-engineering this classic club?
The new, forged version of the Cleveland club keeps the graceful, tour-tested shape of its predecessors despite the addition of several recent advances in wedge design. For example, Cleveland’s Tour Zip Grooves™ and Laser Milled™ face technology create face conditions that comply with the Rules of Golf but maximize ball spin . The Tour Zip Grooves™ have the maximum allowable groove dimensions, and the Laser Milled™ face provides the maximum allowable surface roughness by precisely positioning four “texture lines” (tiny mini-grooves) between each Zip Groove™.
The forged 1025 carbon steel used in the head creates a buttery-soft but consistently solid feel. Even the shaft has been developed to perform even better than the shafts of the club’s predecessors. True Temper and Cleveland Golf worked together to create a suitable shaft for the forged version of the Cleveland 588 wedge, and the result is the club’s “Tour Concept Wedge” steel shaft. According to Cleveland, it produces more spin and superb feel but a lower, more penetrating ball flight than previous shafts.
The Forged Cleveland 588 wedge offers three bounce options (low, standard and high) as well as lofts beginning at 46-degrees and going all the way up to 64-degrees, in 2-degree increments. As a result the Cleveland 588 wedge is available in multiple loft and bounce combinations. The club also comes in one of two finishes: Chrome or Satin. All these choices allow golfers to choose the club configuration that best suits their course conditions, shot selection and preference in appearance.
I tested the 54-degree Forged Cleveland 588 wedge with the standard bounce and Satin finish. I can sum up my experience in just a few words: this club is capable of hitting superior shots from every conceivable lie . I used it off the fringe for low running chips, I hit full shots from the fairway and rough, I played it from the bunkers. I even hit it on the tee of a very short par three. No matter what the lie was like or what type of shot I was taking, its performance was consistently excellent . My full shots soared high and landed softly with minimal rollout. My low chips ran predictably.
This is a wedge with a classy appearance and even better performance. It’s accurate and serves up a large helping of confidence in addition to spin and distance control. It’s an easy-to-hit, versatile wedge for any type of player.
The Bottom Line : So, has Cleveland Golf knocked it out of the park again with the Forged Cleveland 588 wedge? Based on the rounds I played with this club, I think it’s a home run. This is a “players’ club” with the type of feel and consistent performance that top-caliber golfers demand, but it can also help “Joe Average” improve his short game. It inspires confidence and delivers plenty of spin on full approach shots. If you’re looking for a wedge with classic looks and superb short-game performance, this could be the one. There’s a reason the Cleveland 588 has been the most popular wedge in the history of the sport – and now it’s better than ever. This one gets two thumbs up!
