It can be done. but whether it works as hw u want it to is a diff story. The bounce of the club will be different as well

5 deg still can. more than that and the offset will increase.
also forged can. cast may break... is TA588 forged?

Bro, you can bend for 1-2 deg only. For all the trouble, you are better off buying a new wedge.

Just go and buy new one la.... Mai tu liao.

jtek,

if you are looking for a PW replacement, you can custom order it from TM.. or you can try custom fitters just for 1 stick..

Bro, there are options, just check with Pan West if they will make a special order for you. Not sure if you will have to pay a little more or not, but can try to bargain. Only issue is have to wait a little.

I myself have a CG10 46 deg PW which I was lucky enough to find in stock at Pan West some years back.

Head to the Cleveland website for more information.
