New wedges from little-known KZG deserve attention

By E. Michael Johnson


The company recently introduced its XRS wedges -- a line that encompasses six lofts (50 to 60 degrees in 2-degree increments) with multiple bounce options in the 56- and 60-degree models.

The clubs ($119 each) are heat-treated to provide a soft feel, and the face has a micro-milling pattern to give it additional surface roughness for more spin. The C-grind sole features relief on the heel and toe for enhanced workability around the greens. And when you think of wedges, aren't shots around the green what really pop into your head?
