This hybrid has 48* of loft and can be used in the shag, from a tight greenside lie, and even to blast out of a bunker. It also eliminates that greenside indecision that often deflates confidence.” — Greg Jourdan, Golf Writer

The Ventura County Star“Inventing a Better Way to Play,” The Ventura County Star, November 24, 2009
“Had Tom Watson had Kit Mungo’s new wedge with which to hit his chip shot on the final hole of this year’s British Open, there’s a good chance Watson would be carrying around the Claret Jug today.

Mungo, owner of A Better Club Inc., a custom golf club and club-fitting company in Ventura, has spent close to two decades developing clubs to help golfers enjoy the game more.

But he’s taken his talents to a new level with his latest invention, Herbie’s One Putt Wedge.

The new club, which hit the market Nov. 15, makes it easier for players to hit a variety of shots, including the delicate chip shot Watson faced at last July’s Open Championship.”

“I’ve been writing professionally about golf and golf equipment for close to twenty years, and I’ve never met a more talented and knowledgeable golf club designer and repairman than Kit Mungo. His design work in the Herbie One Putt Wedge contains more innovative and exciting features than, perhaps, any wedge has displayed since the legendary Gene Sarazen in the 1930′s added a broad flange to a lofted iron and invented the sand wedge as we know it today.

In setting the shaft with both a built-in forward leaning shaft, while at the same time positioning the leading edge of the wedge slightly forward of the shaft, with the club’s extremely upright lie angle and significant mass positioned low and rearward, Herbie’s One Putt Wedge allows golfers to easily hit down and through the ball for amazingly consistent impact on chips, pitches and shots from greenside bunkers.

The history of advances in golf equipment always begins with extremely easy to hit clubs. This progression over the past fifty years began with perimeter-weighted putters and irons, then moved into graphite shafts, metal woods, and, finally oversized drivers and irons. While originally designed for higher handicap players, all of these products quickly found their way in the bags and hands of highly skilled players and Tour pros. Herbie’s One Putt Wedge finally adds wedge advancement to this historical lineage of club design, and, again, while it makes short games shots immeasurably easier for less skilled players, no doubt better players, even professionals will put it into play very soon. After all, every golfer wants to see his or her chip, pitch or bunker shot up there within tap-in distance of the cup.”

— Andy Brumer, former editor of Golf Tips Magazine, contributing writer to Golf Digest, Golfweek, (and other golf publications), co-author with Bobby Clampett of The Impact Zone: Mastering Golf’s Moment of Truth, and a book of essays on golf titled The Poetics of Golf.
