Cleveland Golf, which has its UK base in Harrogate, is launching three new irons, a wedge and two putters. The clubs are expected to be available by mid-April.

The brand’s No.1 player, Vijay Singh, has been using the CG1 Black Pearl irons on both the European and PGA Tours. They feature Micro-Mill technology on face and grooves, helping, says Cleveland, trajectory and distance control.

Aimed at the low handicapper and professional, the clubs also have a coating that reduces glare and those irritating reflections as you waggle the club at address, while helping create a soft feel at impact. Available with steel shafts only, the clubs (3-PW) will have a recommended price of £679.

Versatile CG4 Tour irons are made from CMM metal with a shorter blade length than the original CG4s making them, says Cleveland, more workable and easier to hit. The thin topline aims to appeal to the ‘better player’s eye’. Cost will be £549 for steel shafts (3-PW) and £699 fitted with grafalloy blue graphite shafts.

The latest Launcher LP irons are similar to the original Launcher irons but more forgiving and with a lower centre of gravity to help get the long irons airborne more easily. Offset, they will be available in a seven-club set (4-PW) for £349 (steel) or £439 (graphite).

A new wedge has been added to the distinguished Cleveland range - a Tour Action 588 DSG (Dynamic Sole Grind), which the makers claim keeps the leading edge closer to the ground for those high, soft-landing flop shots around the green. Recommended price will be £79.

Cleveland will also reveal two classic-style putters – based on tried and tested models – a 1948 centre-shafted blade and a 1905 ‘Calamity Jane’ replica, featuring milled faces and leather grips, priced at £99.
