ProTouch Wedge™ Revolutionizes Golf's Short Game and Sand Bunker Play With New Clubhead Design Featuring Sole Channel Technology™

NAPLES, FLORIDA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2010) - The ProTouch Wedge™ (www.protouchgolf.com), with innovative Sole Channel Technology™, brings an exciting new look and more confidence to the short game and sand bunker play in golf. 

The unique ProTouch Wedge design features four deep grooves or channels running perpendicular to the leading edge through the back of the bounce.

The channels act like rails to guide the club head, keeping it square throughout the swing. There is less shifting or movement in the sand or deep rough, providing more forgiveness. The Sole Channel technology helps guide the club head down the swing path, through the ball, toward the target for a more effective rough or greenside bunker shot.

"Far too many strokes are lost during a round of golf due to poor wedge play, particularly 'touch' shots from off the green that require a shortened back swing," noted Michael Connors, president of ProTouch. "Our new wedge design and Sole Channel Technology brings new confidence to these same difficult shots for players of all skill levels."

Regardless of the lie, the Sole Channels are designed to encourage a normal square stance and square face at address and impact. This allows you to hit a normal pitch shot, just like you would from a distance of 60 to 80 yards, without having to open your stance, open your club face, hack down on a ball in the rough, or anything else. You just take your normal swing that you hit every time. 

The ProTouch Wedge is able to receive the ground with less of a collision, allowing the club head to interact more effectively with the sand or turf, thereby making a cleaner strike on the ball. The club head accelerates through the ball, which greatly improves the odds of making clean contact with the ball. This also produces more back spin, which gives the golfer more distance control, especially on difficult "touch" shots.

The ProTouch Wedge's Sole Channel sections have zero bounce. The sole moves with the turf (even deep rough) and the channels move through the sand instead of colliding with it. Yet there is still enough bounce to successfully push the sand to allow the head to slide under the ball. Even in conditions when sand in a bunker may be wet or very shallow, the channels permit the club head to effectively move through the sand with the right amount of bounce due to the open channels. 

The new ProTouch Wedge comes in 56 and 60 degree lofts and is 5% heavier than conventional wedges. The added weight helps create momentum toward the ball and reduces deceleration. This provides better feel for shots that don't require a full swing.
