Groundbreaking Cutter Wedge™ Technology
Cutter Golf provides innovative golf equipment that revolutionize the way you play. We introduce products powered by groundbreaking technology that make tough shots easier and make the sport more enjoyable, starting with the Cutter Wedge™.
Dickie Walsh conceptualized the Cutter Wedge, alongside industry veteran Jeff Sheets. Walsh noticed that a wedge club performs better with a downward toe, cutting through surfaces flawlessly and increasing your accuracy. Together, Walsh and Sheets created an innovative wedge club that offers better swing control to improve your short game.
The Cutter Wedge™
With a unique but aerodynamic shape, the Cutter Wedge is designed to cut through all surfaces and manage any lie, letting you play easily in all course conditions.
Enjoy these two benefits with Cutter Wedge:
Extraordinary club feel:
The blade has 66% less leading edge and a center-balanced, self-aligning face, allowing effortless swings.
More accurate swings:
The club has a 75% larger sweet spot, which increases the precision of your hits. Plus, Cutter Wedge has substantially less drag and fiction because there’s no toe or heel to block the face of the club.
The Cutter Wedge has Cutter Sole Technology that distributes the club’s weight to the center of the face. This expands the sweet spot of the club, allowing better contact, more accurate strikes, and less missed hits.
The sole has a crescent shape, which is aerodynamically better than traditional wedge clubs. It allows the Cutter Wedge to cut smoothly across surfaces instead of dragging. The sole is also self-stabilizing, which is helpful in various types of turf and sand conditions.
The Cutter Sole Technology also supports a self-aiming face, which improves intended ball flight and raises the club’s center of gravity. Unlike traditional wedges, the face of the Cutter Wedge is symmetrical, providing turf relief on the toe and heel of the club. This means less turf resistance or drag when swinging on rough terrains.
The crescent-shaped sole and symmetrical face profile result in a bigger sweet spot, increasing the precision of your swings. The shape of the face makes the club easier to align and control as well, letting you properly visualize the intended path of the ball.
A traditional golf wedge experiences twisting of the club face when an off-center impact occurs. The perimeter weighting is supposed to prevent re-directing of the club face. However, during an off-center impact, the toe or heel controls the direction which then negates the perimeter weighting effect.
The shape and perimeter weighting of the Cutter Wedge keep the face square regardless of how you hit the ball. Plus, its symmetrical face makes any lie manageable, letting you hit the sweet spot more often.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the angles of the Cutter Wedge?
We are currently working on the design of these wedges, making sure they are as efficient as the first Cutter Wedge. Sign up for our newsletter, and we'll let you know when they're ready.
Do you have a 52° and 58° wedge?
The Cutter Wedge's design incorporates 56° of loft and 12° of extra deep bounce with a 64° lie angle.
What makes the Cutter Wedge different from a typical wedge club?
The Cutter Wedge has 66% less leading edge than the average wedge, which means it can "cut" through the grass instead of dragging. The sweet spot also increases by 75%, giving the club its unique shape.
What kind of lies can the Cutter Wedge hit besides the fairway?
The Cutter Wedge can hit off any lie because of its shape, but it performs best in the following:
- Down hill
- Above your feet
- Below your feet
- Thick Rough
- Thin lies
- Sand Traps
Who designed the Cutter Wedge?
The Cutter Wedge was originally designed and conceptualized by Dickie Walsh. He began to play around and tinker with wedges. Walsh saw that when the toe was turned downward, it had the ability to cut through the surface instead of dragging. Plus, it also increased the size of the sweet spot.
Alongside Dickie is Jeff Sheets of the renowned golf firm, Jeff Sheets Golf LLC. Sheets has worked with more than 60 major golf winners and two dozen Hall of Fame members on their most important tools - golf clubs. Over the past quarter century Jeff's expertise in designing, fitting, and customizing golf equipment has led to countless victories for some of the game's biggest names.
Jeff Sheets’ work on the Cutter Wedge legitimizes and validates its innovative design and uniqueness.
Does the Cutter Wedge conform to the rules of golf governed by the USGA?
The USGA has evaluated the Cutter Wedge and has established that it “Conforms with the Rules of Golf.” Learn more about it here.
Does the Cutter Wedge have a patent pending?
Yes. The Cutter Wedge has been issued the Patent Pending number of 16/450,487.
How does the Cutter Wedge improve my short game?
The Cutter Wedge allows golfers to hit closer to the hole, providing a better chance to 1 putt. The triangular shape minimizes turf resistance in the rough and on sidehill lies, allowing the club to cut through the surface. Other than its unique face shape, the Cutter Wedge is a traditional sand wedge in every other aspect. It incorporates 56° of loft and 12° of an extra deep bounce with a 64° lie angle.
When you hit this club you will notice 2 VERY distinct things:
The club feel is extraordinary. Because of the self-aligning and center balanced face, it will feel effortless in your swing and the club will glide or cut through the turf. ~ Why? Because, the blade has 66% less leading edge!
The ball just jumps off the face. Why? Because there is no toe or heel to drag to open or close the face which allows you to get through the ball more easily. This is because of substantially less drag and less friction. Even if you hit the Cutter off center, the club has 75% larger sweet spot!
When the Hybrid Fairway Wood was introduced in the late 80's, everyone thought it looked a little funny but we all know what happened next! The Cutter Wedge is NOT a gimmick - there are no FLASHY colors to try and distract you from the REAL innovation & technology which is simply obvious.
A standard wedge is typically 56° degrees with a 12° degree bounce and 60°- 65° degrees in Lie Angle as seen below:
Although the Cutter Wedge has the same Loft, Bounce and Lie Angle as a typical wedge there are SEVERAL outstanding and innovative differences however; one that stands out the most...THE CLUB FACE!
Although the Cutter Wedge's club face is GROUND BREAKING, the real SECRET WEAPON is the "Cutter Sole Technology" that distributes weight to the CENTER of the face for improved strikes and better contact and that means less miss hits! The Cutter Sole Technology ALSO supports a Self-Aiming Face which in turn allows for improved Intended ball flight and also raises the Center of Gravity (CG) higher up the club face!
Also, due to the symmetrical shape of the Cutter's face profile and sole, there is superior turf relief on both the toe and heel sides of the club head. In other words - you get much less turf resistance from tall grass or side hill lies compared to traditional asymmetrical wedge.
To illustrate further, the Cutter Sole Technology behaves like the geometry of a BOAT that has a narrow bow and a broad stern like the image above, allowing the bow to aerodynamically cut through water which causes the boat to remain stable. Which is why the Cutter Sole self-corrects its own stability through various types of turf and sand conditions and most importantly, the sole reacts like a Snow Plow as the material is displaced on either side of the plow as seen below...
PERIMETER WEIGHTING COMPARED
A traditional golf iron experiences twisting of the club face when an off-center impact occurs. Existing perimeter weighting is supposed to neutralize re-directing of the club face however, during an off center impact the toe or heel controls the direction which then negates the traditional perimeter weighting effect.
