Why We Like It

Designing a groove with more spin than a Taylor Swift dance move while reducing frightening flyers and other variations can be daunting. Wilson reviewed its manufacturing method, particularly its cutting tools to produce a steeper angle in the groove shoulder angle for more bite and less loss of spin in wet conditions. Using a Garnet blast, surface roughness on the face (120 micro inches, up from 85 micro inches) was significantly improved, which is particularly helpful on short pitches and chips. The True Temper Dynamic Gold Spinner shaft and Golf Pride Tour Velvet grip complete a package tour pros and amateurs alike can appreciate.

This is The Key to Good Wedge Play

A proficient wedge game can turn double bogeys into par saves and drop scores from the mid-90s well into the 80s. In this video, Ashley Moss shows you why solid contact is the first step to dialing in your wedge distances.
