If you've toured Bettinardi Golf's headquarters in Tinley Park, Ill., you've seen the assortment of putters, the nifty fitting studio and maybe even the collection of one-of-a-kind flat sticks in Robert J. Bettinardi's office. But you might not have seen the racks of wedges tucked in a back corner.
After more than 15 years of tinkering, the veteran puttermaker is branching into the wedge market. The H2 -- named for the high helix cutting tool used in the CNC machines that create the wedges' milled faces -- features a 1020 forged carbon-steel construction.
The wedges will be available next month in five loft/bounce combinations and two finishes (satin nickel, $180; cashmere bronze, $195). The "C-grind" sole pattern is designed to keep the leading edge closer to the ground through the hitting area while adding improved playability for a variety of short-game shots.
