TaylorMade Golf Company today announces the highly anticipated Tour Preferred wedges. These classically designed wedges combine timeless shaping and performance that meets the demands of the world’s best players.
TaylorMade sought the input of PGA Tour players as well as renowned club designer Clay Long to artfully craft Tour Preferred wedges.
“We dedicated three years to meticulously dialing in all shapes and dimensions,” said Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade’s Director of Product Creation for Irons, Putters and Wedges. “The outcome is two extremely versatile sole grinds in the Tour Preferred category. We combined that with a raw Micro Texture face to make this wedge truly worthy of the Tour Preferred name.”
The first sole option is a new Classic Grind for the player who prefers a clean, classically designed wedge with a very traditional shape. This model is offered in lofts of 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60 degrees with Tour-proven bounce options. The design is clean with slight progressive camber (more in the higher lofts) and generous heel relief. The heel relief allows for the versatility of a C-grind on open-faced shots but retains the main sole surface for better performance on full swings and shots from the bunker.
