Special edition Tiger wedge added to Taylormade’s MG2 line-up

Must read

ANA Inspiration, The Blue Wall, and a lesson for the PGA Tour

There’s nothing worse than burying your head in the sand and pretending everything is rosy, but it's a tactic that the PGA Tour has been deploying unapologetically for years

High science or a load of balls?

To find the ultimate ball for you, a ‘fitting’ under PGA Pro/Trackman supervision is wise. After all, if there's advantage to be had, why not take it?

One Major title or 18 – they’re all special to those on golf’s glory list 

The US PGA was a welcome return to the big time despite the lack of spectators. Let's hope the US Open can deliver the goods too

Get Shorty*

The 9-Hole Course is back in the limelight, and none more so in Ireland than Cruit Island, Mulranny, Castlegregory and Bushfoot

TaylorMade Golf Company has lifted the curtain on a limited edition Tiger Woods wedge; a club milled for precision and played by a champion.

The 56° Tiger Grind with 12° of Bounce features a dual sole grind with heavy heel relief. The setup is built for versatility, allowing him to open or close the face easily to control trajectory or react to the lie.

The 60° Tiger Grind with 11° of Bounce promotes leading edge relief and provides improved turf interaction on the firm conditions commonly found on Tour,
allowing Tiger to play a variety of shots. Designed for versatility, the grind lets Tiger be more aggressive on open-face wedge shots because the leading edge stays closer to the ground

The release comes fresh off the launch of TaylorMade’s MyMG2 personalised wedge programme. Inspired by trends seen on the PGA Tour where players personalise wedges with stamping to display their unique personalities, TaylorMade is now giving all golfers the ability to make each wedge uniquely their own and deliver a service that has historically been reserved for the game’s top players.

“With Raw Face Technology and the Milled Grind sole, MG2 wedges are the ultimate in consistency and precision. With the new MyMG2, now you’re able to make it precisely your own. We offer a number of personalisation options so you can design a wedge that’s truly unique to your game and your preferences.”  Bill Price, Senior Director of Product Creation, Putter & Wedge.

Golfers can select from four different finishes

Cobalt Nickel: Exclusive to MyMG2, the Nickel finish provides a premium look and reduces glare at address.

Chrome: The classic look of a chrome finish preferred by many golfers.

Black: A darker, aggressive styling with a non-glare look at address.

RAW Finish: This is an un-plated wedge that will rust – giving it the worn, rustic look preferred by many Tour athletes (extent and speed of rusting may vary).

Custom stamping options include personalised text and initials, as well as dozens of images. Golfers choose from 13 different paint fills and complete the package by selecting the grip and shaft of their choice. Beyond personalised aesthetics, golfers can build the wedge to their precise specs by customising loft, lie, length and grip size.

Features and technology

Similar to the original Milled Grind wedges and also found in the P7TW irons, MyMG2 wedges feature the company’s proven CNC milling technology, which allows for the production of wedges to exacting specifications. Each leading edge and sole grind is individually CNC milled for unparalleled accuracy and consistency from club to club and grind to grind.

MyMG2 wedges are engineered to generate the most aggressive spin of any wedge in the TaylorMade family. The combination of precision-milling and Raw Face Technology is designed for increased spin, precision and feel. The face rusts over time to preserve consistent spin while the rest of the head maintains its original finish – in the case of the MyMG2 RAW wedge, the entire head will rust.

Pricing and availability

MyMG2 is available in the UK region (Northern Ireland TaylorMade stockists) for now or via TaylorMadeGolf.co.uk at an RRP of €229
