VISTA, Calif. (October 26, 2005) – DeLaCruz Golf, extending its offerings to help golfers optimize their performance, has introduced its new 52-degree gap wedge and 60-degree lob wedge. The two new wedges represent an expansion of DeLaCruz Golf’s Wolfram Wedge line, which also includes the 55-degree sand wedge.
"Users of our 55-degree sand wedge have been praising the club’s consistent performance, which is why we decided to expand our wedge line," said Larry Fortier, COO of DeLaCruz Golf. "A set of our Wolfram Wedges provides the golfer with the tools needed for the desired ‘precision approach’ time and time again. That’s the DeLaCruz Golf standard."
The Wolfram Wedges have the identical physical design features of the DLC Wedge series that earned top billing by Golf Test USA last year. The 52-degree gap wedge features 4-degree bounce for final approach to the green, filling the gap between the pitching wedge and sand wedge, while the 60-degree lob wedge features 5-degree bounce for firm surface shots. Among the distinguishing features of the wedges is the unique sole design, allowing the club to sit down under the ball even when the face is open; the end of the sole angles away to reduce drag. A generous leading edge prevents digging and "fat shots," and a 10% tapered U groove helps keep wedge score lines clean. Very little offset in the hosel allows for easier alignment, creating more consistent shots.
"Wolfram" was the early scientific name used for tungsten. Its symbol on the periodic chart of the elements is "W" and the element number is 74. DeLaCruz Golf has trademarked its Tungsten Carbide alloy as W90tm. The W90tm face insert is ground into a perfectly flat surface for consistent response. The precision score lines provide years of repetitive performance in ball spin and trajectory control. The W90tm has such excellent abrasion resistance it can outwear forged or cast steel by a factor of 100 to 1.
