TaylorMade Golf Company has introduced the all
-
new Milled Grind 3 (MG3) wedges, building on 
the Tour
-
proven performance of RAW Face Technology.

Many of the game’s best players prefer RAW wedges for a critical reason. The un
-
plated surface
material will rust over time to preserve consistent spin while also delivering better performance
in wet conditions. The all
-
new Raised Micro
-
Ribs further enhance those benefits and deliver
 added precision around the greens
–
especially on partial shots.

“Wedges have to be versatile and exacting, whether it’s a full swing from 100 yards, a touchy 
15
-
yard pitch that needs to stop quickly, or any distance in between. With Milled Grind 3, we’ve
 designed a wedge that’s capable
 of delivering optimal spin on every shot from every distance,” said 
Bill Price, Product Creation – Putter & Wedge
.

Raised Micro
-
Ribs (0.02mm tall and .25mm wide) span the entire face and sit between the
traditional grooves. They create an abrasive and texture
d surface area that improves the
interaction between clubface and ball on finesse shots.

Additional changes to the face (compared to MG2) include a scratch finish on the toe area to
 reduce glare at address.
 TaylorMade’s Milled Grind Sole process produces
 wedges of exacting specifications time after
 time. Each leading edge and sole grind are individually CNC milled for accuracy and consistency 
from club to club.

Player
-
inspired alterations to the sole and bounce offerings for MG3 wedges 
include:

  • 
Low Bounc
e (LB)
–
 The new LB sole geometry promotes a smoother entry and exit of
the club through the turf. The leading edge sits closer to the ground and has less
tendency to catch upon entry, while a slight increase in camber will help the club glide
through the
turf with less resistance. Added trail edge relief delivers versatility when
opening the face up to hit finesse shots around the gr
een
.
  • Standard Bounce (SB)
–
 With a slightly wider sole than on MG2, the SB sole geometry is
geared towards increased playabi
lity and forgiveness on various shots. Added trail edge
relief delivers versatility when opening the face up to hit finesse shots around the
 green
.
  • High Bounce (HB)
–
 The HB sole geometry is designed to help players with a steep
attack angle or those who p
lay in softer conditions. Like the SB, the sole is slightly wider 
than MG2 and has increased camber for smoother turf interaction. Added trail edge 
relief delivers versatility when opening the face up to hit finesse shots around the g
reen
.

In examining every component of wedge design during the development of MG3, engineers
made a special effort to improve sound and launch. While seemingly unrelated, improvements 
to both were achieved by altering 
the Thick
-
Thin Design of MG3. Precision mass placement
 optimi
s
ed CG location to encourage lower launch with increased spin (i.e., the higher the loft,
 the higher the CG) while simultaneously delivering better sound and feel responses during 
player testing.

The addition of progressive hosel lengths completes the comprehensive MG3 design. Pairing
 different hosel lengths with different lofts allows for optimal CG location and promotes a
 seamless transition from iron sets into wedges.

TW Grind


Offered in custom offerings only, with 56° and 60° lofts available, each sole

. The 56° wedge is a dual sole with heavy
heel relief, while the 60° has an extremely high bounce on the leading edge with a
 shaved
heel. This makes it possible to open the face for flop shots, while still providing 
relief on the leading edge for better performance on tight lies. Designed to be
 supremely versatile, these unique grinds allow Tiger to take on any shot, on any course, 
any
where in the world.
