Karsten Solheim started making putters out of his garage back in the 1950s that went "ping" when you hit them -- and a brand was born that would change the landscape for golf clubs and equipment for years and years to come. Ping has made a lot of innovations in club design since then, and the new Ping Tour-S Rustique wedges are just one more in that long procession. These wedges are made from a soft steel called 8620 -- the softer steel gives the club more "feel" and perhaps allows the ball to stay on the face a moment longer for more spin and control. With a pretty traditional head shape and design, these wedges are going to appeal to all levels of golfers. There are several options in these wedges for loft (52, 56, 60 degree), orientation (right or left hand), as well as shaft options that include the True Temper Dynamic Gold or KBS Tour. The grip is standardized with the Ping ID8 rubber composition model.

Depending on your personal taste, you'll either love -- or hate -- the fact these clubs will tarnish naturally and rust over time. Having used a wedge (from a different maker) several years ago that rusted naturally, I wasn't a fan of that characteristic. It always looked like it needed to be cleaned.  It's a very personal preference however, so don't let that stop you from taking a look at these clubs.

One final thought: for those of you about to take a run at a Tour career, Ping says their Tour-S Rustique clubs "conform to the 2010 USGA Rules for Touring Professionals" -- so they've got that going for them.
