TAYLORMADE have introduced their all-new Milled Grind 3 (MG3) wedges, building on the Tour-proven performance of RAW Face technology.
Indeed, many of the game’s best players prefer RAW wedges for a critical reason. The unplated surface material will rust over time to preserve consistent spin while also delivering better performance in wet conditions.
The all-new Raised Micro-Ribs further enhance those benefits and deliver added precision around the greens, especially on partial shots.
“Wedges have to be versatile and exacting, whether it’s a full swing from 100 yards, a touchy 15-yard pitch that needs to stop quickly or any distance in between,” said Bill Price, of TaylorMade Product Creation – Putter & Wedge.
“With Milled Grind 3, we’ve designed a wedge that’s capable of delivering optimal spin on every shot from every distance.
“Raised Micro-Ribs span the face and sit between the traditional grooves. They create an abrasive and textured surface area that improves the interaction between club face and ball.
“Additional changes to the face (compared to MG2) include a scratch finish on the toe area to reduce glare at address.”
“Our Milled Grind Sole process produces wedges of exacting specifications time after time.
“Each leading edge and sole grind are individually CNC milled for accuracy and consistency from club to club.”
There are player-inspired alterations to the sole and bounce offerings for MG3 wedges.
The new low bounce sole geometry promotes a smoother entry and exit of the club through the turf. The leading edge sits closer to the ground and has less tendency to catch upon entry, while a slight increase in camber will help the club glide through the turf with less resistance.
With a slightly wider sole than on MG2, the standard bounce sole geometry is geared towards increased playability and forgiveness on various shots.
The high bounce sole geometry is designed to help players with a steep attack angle or those who play in softer conditions. Like the standard bounce, the sole is slightly wider than MG2 and has increased camber for smoother turf interaction.
Delivered in custom offerings only, with 56° and 60° lofts available, each sole on the MG3 TW (Tiger Woods) was inspired by Woods’ grind. The 56° wedge is a dual sole with heavy heel relief, while the 60° has an extremely high bounce on the leading edge with a shaved heel.
The Milled Grind 3 wedges are available at a price of RM1,100.
