TAYLORMADE MILLED GRIND
www.taylormadegolf.com Lofts: 50° / 52° / 54° / 56° / 58° / 60°
Head options: SB; Standard Bounce, HB; Wide Sole, C Grind; Low Bounce. Satin and antique bronze finishes
Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold
TECH: CNC-milled sole grinds offer precision and consistency. A weight port in the hosel removes weight to centre the CG and there’s new, sharper ZTP grooves with steeper side walls to maximise spin on shorter shots.
WE SAY: In his prime, Sir Nick Faldo picked his favourite individual irons from 20 different sets, having realised each hand ground head was slightly different. What TaylorMade have done with the MG is take that consistency question out of the equation. It’s really clever and pretty costly to set up but it means club golfers will now play exactly the same sole and bounce set-ups as TM’s Tour pros. The head is pretty high in the heel and generously proportioned, but spin was well above average.
VERDICT: A nice quality wedge, generates lovely feel and oodles of spin. With plenty of loft and bounce options and two finishes they can fit into anyone’s bag for 2017.
