Renegar Golf Wedges - Design & Philosophies
We expanded and enriched that perspective with our design philosophies of SEDO (Systems Engineered Design Optimization) and DFFA (Design For First Attempt) – leading us to an essential understanding that great short game golf club design needs to match the design demands of the short game situations encountered by the player – and not the full swing dynamics of the player (like his irons).
But we were not satisfied there. We even challenged the assumptions that conventional irons shafts and grips were good enough for wedges – leading us to the design and development of ground-breaking new shaft and grip R&D to match your short game needs.
And then we tempered all of this with good players’ perspectives.
Great golf club design must begin with and be driven by insightful design philosophies. Our design philosophies have been developed over the span of a near 30-year career in the golf industry. Given there is much more to our product than any single "break-through," our Design Philosophies might be summarized by all of the following:
"Think Outside the Bunker"
We believe that the demands of short game play force us to think beyond the simplicity of bunker explosion shots – short game play involves much more – just as our golf clubs give you much more. We liked Sarazen's bounce sole for bunker play, but we did not like his dangerously raised leading edge - so we fixed it with our patented sole!
SEDO (Systems Engineered Design Optimization)
Just like a successful formula one race car development, our designs embody optimizations of many different design variables with the singular objective of better performance. This is happening elsewhere in golf club design - why would we leave anything undone in developing our wedges for you?
DFFA (Design For First Attempt)
Golf requires us to create successful golf shots with our first attempts when we play. The elusive "feel" so many of us seek (but cannot describe or quantify) may actually be a more basic form of our DFFA. The many design variables in wedges can be optimized for better outcomes on the first attempt – i.e. the weight and balance of the golf club, the stiffness of the shaft, etc. - it is the "etc." in this case that really makes the difference.
Single Set Specification
We have embraced the concept of a single set specification for all of our wedge offerings – the same head weights, shaft, and grip at the same lengths, swing weights, and lie angles. All of the golf clubs in our wedges set "feel" and perform the same. This enhances consistent feel and improved learning curves for short game play for players at every skill level (while offering the added benefit of more consistent manufacturing).
