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.
