Wow, the Mazel Wedge is like having a Wizards Magic Wand in your bag! it works miracles. First off, I love the funky color of the MAZEL Wedge. It's a modern, flashy, fun color. Golf is supposed to be fun.
It's sold by Mazel Golf at www.mazelgo.com at the: MAZEL Colorful Golf Sand Wedge.
Ok, it's the Milled Club Face that strikes your attention first. It's the foundation of the club. It's where the magic happens.
It's Soul has a 20 degree of Bounce that is as steep as the Swiss Alps! Meaning the Soul is as big as Mother Theresa's! But it's the face design that is effective!
This 55 degree wedge cuts through grass and sand like a red hot knife through butter! First the groves have a rough or granular feeling on the faces that are there.
I used it out of the rough and out of the sand and from the fairway!
First, the fairway. I was surprised at how heavy the club face and hozel are. This heaviness seems odd at first, but once you get used to the weight I found the MAZEL to be an effective tool from around 60 yards out and into the green.
Second, the rough. Yes, it works and it works well. Two reasons. The big Soul and big Bounce coupled with the milled face creates less friction as you rip through the grass.
Third, the sand. Yes, it works and it works well. Two reasons. The milled face creates less friction as you rip through the sand. We were always taught that the sand will push the balls off the club face and to “take sand” as it were. The MAZEL is built antithetically. It wants you to carve through the sand and let the milled club face do the work. Combine the milled club face with the massive soul and the weight of the wedge and I have to tell you the ball moves! In fact, we all dread the duffed shot from the bunker! God forbid we have to take three strokes just to get off the beach and onto the green. “Curse you Golf Gods!”, we scream as we throw our wedge at or near or bag. But instead it hits the Caddy at Oakmont in the middle of his forehead and your troubles are compounded by the impending lawsuit!
Guess what? With the MAZEL wedge you don't have to worry about the lawsuit! I filmed video for our
Golfin' Around TV Show and I hit ten balls out of the bunker from different lies. All ten shots flew out of the bunker!
Now look, I have no idea if the MAZEL is USGA legal and if you could use it during your local tournament. But, for pounding around the track with you playing partners; it will do your game wonders! Get one today at www.mazelgo.com It will be $99.00 well spent. Better than the lawsuit!
My only beef is that I like a much thicker grip, so I have since put on a JUMBO MAX golf grip.

Golfin' Around contacted the USGA about the Mazel Wedge:
The wedge pictured is NOT conforming. We’ve had nearly identical submissions in the past. Golf Clubs are not allowed to have holes through the face. This is from the Equipment Rules:
a. Plain in Shape
The clubhead must be generally plain in shape. All parts must be rigid, structural in nature and functional. The clubhead or its parts must not be designed to resemble any other object.
It is not practicable to define plain in shape precisely and comprehensively. However, features that are deemed to be in breach of this requirement and are therefore not permitted include, but are not limited to:
(i) All Clubs
• holes through the face;
• holes through the head (some exceptions may be made for putters and cavity back irons);
• features that are for the purpose of meeting dimensional specifications;
• features that extend into or ahead of the face;
• features that extend significantly above the top line of the head;
• furrows in or runners on the head that extend into the face (some exceptions may be made for putters); and
• optical or electronic devices.
Holes through the Face
Holes through the face are not permitted – see Figure 25.
