WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Wilson Golf Staff Model wedges were geared towards the better player. Its latest Staff Model Tour Grind lineup takes that thought process a step further, delivering to the consumers sole grinds similar to what is played on Tour.

The new line is made from 8620 carbon steel, providing a soft feel. Machine-engraved score lines in the milled face create a higher density pattern that allows the ball to engage more groove edges at impact for enhanced spin, especially on half shots where the grooves don’t channel as much debris, but rather create spin through edge contact with the grooves on the ball. The sole is designed to make it easier to open the face, making it a good choice for tight lies or firm conditions.

“Consumers [have] the chance to play a wedge inspired by the custom grinds made uniquely for tour players such as Gary Woodland and Padraig Harrington,” says Jon Pergande, Wilson Golf’s global manager of innovation. “With a clean design and precision milled club faces, these Tour Grind wedges provide all golfers with more control of their shot-making capabilities and are a perfect complement to our existing Staff Model line of wedges.”

PRICE: The Staff Model wedges feature True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 steel shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips. The standard version is available in 56, 58, and 60 degrees in right-hand only and will be in stores Feb. 9 at a price of $130 per wedge.
