The "58" comes from Wilson Staff as in 1958

The "8" comes from 8* of bounce which the old staff was stock and the Cleveland standard stock version is too.

Stu - Thanks for the history lesson! I thought the TM wedge looked quite a bit like the old WS Dynapower bore-through. And I never knew the history of the 588.

Not knocking Cleveland golf at all but a lot of his early stuff was quality copies of classic stuff thus Cleveland Classics. They made some great copies of classic Macgregor persimmon woods back in the 80s. In fact they made 2 of the best copies of the famed Wilson 8802 putter. I have a couple of the woods and they hit as good as any persimmon made back in the day. I also have one of the 8802 copies I have had 25 years or more and I putt with it better than I do a real 8802

I picked up a center shaft Odyssey White Hot 2 center shaft with an insert that is peeling off. Im going to take out the insert, clean the club up, refinish, and put a copper insert back in.

Finished up my first finished product for a divot tool.  I've got a bunch of copper, brass and aluminum I'm going to make some out of.  I figured out quickly that making a divot tool is easy, polishing and grinding a divot tool is hard.  So I just went hand hammered for this one.

Sorry there Stu, but have to call you out on this one, unless you have something else to back it up.  From this article, the "5" comes from it being Cleveland's 5th design and the "88" comes from being released in 1988.

Also, as far as I know, the TM wedges aren't a  true bore through, even though they do have a red "plug" on the bottom making them appear so?  I've never owned or even held any of them so can't say for sure, but think that's correct?
