TaylorMade is further expanding their wedge lineup, with a Hi-Toe Big Foot model to go alongside the newly updated Milled Grind 2.
Having launched the Hi-Toe wedges at the start of 2018 to great success, with PGA Tour stars including Rory McIlroy choosing to add them to their bag, the new Big Foot is a game-improvement option aimed at providing even more forgiveness for better short game results.
Key to this is a new 'super wide sole' which allows for a variety of different shots around the green, from a number of different lies and turf types.
Bill Price, Senior Director of Product Creation for Putters and Wedges, commented:
We have one of the best wedge line-ups on the market but realised that there was still one golfer out there that wasn't catered for. With Big Foot we now have a game improvement wedge that's easier to play regardless of course conditions, especially for those who struggle out of bunkers.
The Hi-Toe Family of wedges now cover every aspect of the game; versatility, playability and game improvement.
The Hi-Toe Big Foot wedges offer an asymmetric C-Grind which is much flatter than a typical wedge, and also much wider, measuring at 32mm compared to the usual 26mm.
This combines with a leading edge which is designed specifically to prevent digging, and a maximum bounce of 15°, to improve playability and ease of use from sand and rough.
The flatter sole has slightly more bounce in the toe, which helps golfers with an out-to-in swing path and who tend to strike the ball from the toe.
The trailing edge offers more forgiveness with a slight reduction in the heel which helps lower the leading edge and allow more versatility.
On the back cavity there are three noticeable 'CG pockets' which TaylorMade says have been developed to increase spin, flight control and allow mass to be redistributed to the sole. These bigger slots have also allowed the sole width to be maximised.
The Big Foot wedge utilises the Hi-Toe technology, although the toe is 5mm higher which gives a raised centre of gravity, helping to lower launch and improve spin rates.
Grooves across the whole face mean that more consistent ball contact can be achieved out of the rough, where off-centre strikes are more consistent, as well as keeping spin rates up in these instances too.
Available from 6th September, the Hi-Toe Big Foot wedges will be available in 58° and 60° lofts in right-handed only, at an RRP of £149. They will come with a KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 shaft and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 GEC grip.
