New for 2017, the TaylorMade Milled Grind Wedges use advanced surface milling techniques to ensure precise sole geometry, leading edges, and score lines. The result is a precisely crafted grind on each and every wedge that produces optimal turf interaction and consistent performance.
“Wedges that are hand-ground lend themselves to inconsistencies from wedge to wedge, especially when mass produced. Our new Milled Grind wedges ensure precision where it matters most. Utilizing extensive feedback from Tour players, we crafted three uniquely milled grinds for all types of swings and turf conditions.”
— Paul Demkowski, Expert Engineer, Irons & Wedges
Finding the perfect grind geometry was one of the primary development stages in which TaylorMade relied on input from Tour players. To craft the wedges to exacting specifications, each leading edge and sole grind is individually surface milled for unparalleled accuracy. A low effective bounce (LB) grind provides the least amount of ground resistance, a standard grind (SB) has a median ground resistance, and a high bounce (HB) grind features a wider sole that offers the most ground resistance.
Milled Grind wedges also exhibit a deeper bore and shaft insertion than previous wedges, going from 1.0 inch to 1.5 inches—resulting in a soft, red polymer-filled Precision Weight Port located toward the heel of every sole. The deeper bore, while providing an improved shaft connection, also removes weight from the hosel to be relocated into a more centrally located position, which improves the center of gravity (CG), making the club more solid and more forgiving.
A new and improved groove configuration is also incorporated into the faces of each new wedge. These soft 8620 carbon steel wedges promise to be the most precise, best balanced, and best feeling wedge that TaylorMade has ever produced.
- MILLED TO PERFECTION - Drawing design inspiration from the world's best golfers, Milled Grind (MG) wedges use advanced milling techniques to ensure precise sole geometry, leading edges, and score lines. The result is a perfectly crafted grind on each and every wedge that produces optimal turf interaction and consistent performance.
- PRECISION WEIGHT PORT (PWP) - Filled with a soft red polymer, the PWP saves weight from the hosel to be relocated for better CG, creating a more balanced, solid-feeling wedge with improved control around the green.
- ZTP GROOVE TECHNOLOGY - New ZTP groove technology features steeper side walls and sharper edge radii for maximum spin and control.
