I tested TaylorMade's Milled Grind 2 Wedge late last summer and was really impressed with the sleek, compact looks and exceptional spin rates generated by the new raw face.
Like any other golf club, wedges can be fitted and personalised to best suit a player's game thanks to different bounce and grind options, and now TaylorMade are taking this one step further.
The Milled Grind 2 Wedge now features a special edition Tiger Woods Grind, which has been milled to mirror the exact specifications of the 15-time major champion's wedges to allow amateur golfers to gain a little bit more inspiration around the greens.
The 56° Tiger Grind has 12° of bounce and features a dual sole grind with extra relief shaved into the heel. This is designed to allow for extra versatility so that the face can be manipulated open or closed to control the ball flight or better react to different lies out on the course.
The 60° Tiger Grind has 11° of bounce with extra leading edge relief that makes it easier to get through the turf in firm conditions that Tiger often sees on the PGA Tour. The grind also allows for a little more aggression on shots with an open face because the leading edge stays closer to the ground.
A number of new technologies were added to the Milled Grind 2 Wedge which made it one of our favourite wedges of 2019.
Firstly, the aforementioned Raw Face Technology does away with any plating on the face and grooves to optimise spin and feel around the greens, and it allows for plenty of grip in wet conditions too.
The ZTP Grooves are said to be sharper, narrower and deeper than in previous TaylorMade wedges, and this again is engineered to give you more greenside spin. It seemed to work too judging by our testing.
The CNC milling, which is visible along both the sole and leading edge of the club, is more precise than traditional hand-milling and also more consistent, meaning that there are much higher tolerances levels for every wedge created.
The MG2 TW Grind Wedges are set for release later this summer and are to be priced at £169.
