Cleveland Golf is introducing a new model of iron with a level of forgiveness, it claims, never previously seen in a blade. The latest Cleveland CG1 Tour irons are also designed for consistent ball-striking and improved distance control, say the Alton-based distributors.

CG1 Tour irons have a split cavity-back in the long irons and muscle-back in the mid/short irons, thereby maintaining a traditional look while providing the extra forgiveness, workability and feel that a bladed club offers the elite player.  

Cleveland says the 'envelope-stretching' milled Tour Zip Grooves on the CG1 Tour irons feature Laser-milled surface roughness technology to make the most of clubface friction on the ball.  The makers reveal that the precision accuracy of a laser, mills texture lines between each groove to maximise spin within the new Rules of Golf affecting pros on Tour.

The Cleveland CG1 Tour irons will begin shipping on May 1 and will have a recommended price of £549.
