Cleveland Golf was founded in 1979 by Roger Cleveland. Early models from the company were hugely popular on Tour. The 5th wedge design from the company went onto to be one of the most popular wedges ever on Tour - the legendary 588. Cleveland were the first company to offer wedges with multiple bounce options on the sole to the wider market - something that is now commonplace. Sumitomo Rubber Industries own the brand now and in conjunction with Srixon, the two brands form a staple on Professional Tours across the world.
