Milled Grind 3

Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: The challenge for the third iteration of this wedge was straightforward: produce a club that appeals to tour players and add the aggressive spin all golfers seek. To achieve this, the sole has undergone changes. The standard bounce has a slightly wider sole, the low bounce sits closer to the ground with more camber, and the high bounce is wider than the MG2 and features increased camber. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: Elite players have no trouble generating tour sauce with wedge shots, but average golfers need all the spin they can get. This wedge maintains groove-edge sharpness through a process that leaves the face and grooves unplated. In addition, the face has tiny, raised ribs between the grooves to add surface roughness to increase spin on short shots.  Read more>>>

"I really like the milled sole and grind. It performed super out of the sand. Easy to get high with no extra effort at all. Full shots never dug."

"It's a wedge you can use for any shot. Around the green it's a super sucker—the ball really spins. Great sound on full shots that has you wanting to keep hitting."

Milled Grind 3 Satin Raw Chrome and Satin Raw Black $180
From the Manufacturer
Description

The new Milled Grind 3 features RAW Face Micro-Ribs, engineered for added face texture to deliver spin around the greens and added precision on partial shots. A more abrasive and textured surface area leads to better interaction between club face and ball on finesse shots. There’s a reason RAW wedges are preferred by the game’s best players. The unplated material will rust over time to preserve consistent spin while also delivering better performance in wet conditions. With RAW Face Technology, only the face will rust while the rest of the head maintains a premium finish.
