Tiger Woods adds TaylorMade MG wedges to his bag

Published

on

The Tiger Woods transition to TaylorMade equipment is complete (save for his Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter, which he will play until the final round of his life).

Woods shared an image of his bag on social media Wednesday with a couple of new additions: TaylorMade MG 56 and 60-degree wedges.

The Milled Grind wedges feature fresh grinds and finishes similar to the Nike VR Pro wedges he’s played in recent years, as you can see in this close-up.

Here’s a closer look at the grind of his 60-degree wedge, which has 10.5 degrees of bounce.

    Man if y’all would just listen to “gear dive” podcast on here. Would solve anyones speculation. Literally answers all questions about his set up by the guys who made it…

    I thought the MG wedges had bore through hosels that come out on the sole, these don’t seem to have that?

    Any chance these are Artisan wedges? Can’t see the hosels like his new irons?

      Fair observation but please don’t be the one to start the conspiracy theories. Next it will be his Bridgestone ball is actually made by Nike, the adjustable hosel on his driver is fake and he still uses a bonded neck.

    Semi useless PR style information.
    The angle of the photos deliver little info visually.
    Wedge Material:?? Forged, Cast?
    Milled Face??
    Lengths??
    Bounce??
    Wedge labelled 56 looks like a “traditional grind” sand wedge.
    Wedge labelled 60 seems to have an interesting “non-traditional” grind.

    True lofts?
    Lie angles?

    Oh well

    What about his other wedges? He’s gotta carry more than just these two.

      I believe the PW he plays is ~48 degrees. One thing Tiger has also spoke about in the past is his ability to control the loft on all his clubs, meaning that his lofts in his irons haven’t changed. So if he has to hit a shot that would require a 52 degree, he’s de-loft his 56 or open up his PW.

          Same lofts his whole career. Except with the drive.

            amazing to see everyone become a gear expert when talking about Tiger’s. 🙂 me too, i mean. the big cat hasn’t carried an 52Âş or 53Âş as far as i remembered. FWIW, don’t really think what wedge he uses really matters. right now his problem is 1. tee-off especially with the driver & 2. putting. everything else actually seems ok if not better than before IMO.

Titleist confirms yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls for 2019

Published

on

Back in April, when Titleist launched its new AVX golf balls in both white and optic yellow, Michael Mahoney, the Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing for Titleist, spoke on the possibility of yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls on GolfWRX’s Two Guys Talking Golf podcast: “Our process is so focused on golfer feedback… if the demand for a yellow Pro V1 or Pro V1x were large enough…we would like to deliver on it.”

Well, it appears that golfer demand was high enough and Titleist is delivering on it, because on Monday, a company representative confirmed that yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls are coming in 2019.

Rumors were recently swirling about the possibility of yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls, and Team Titleist Manager Mike D. confirmed them in a post on Team Titleist’s discussion thread.

In the post, Mike D. writes…

“Now, you may have heard some of the rumors out there that this was the year that we would finally introduce a yellow Pro V1, Well, I’m here to let Team Titleist know that the rumors aren’t rumors at all. That’s right, after speaking with our product team I am able to confirm that we will be launching (sorry, I couldn’t avoid the pun) yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls in 2019.”

Apparently, posts within the Team Titleist community played a large role in making that happen.

“In fact, Team Titleist played a pretty big role in making this happen. We read and shared all of the posts from the community asking for us to make a yellow Pro V1 and our R&D team went to work.

They spent countless hours on figuring out how we could develop the best possible bright colored cover formulation. They went through numerous trials to get everything just right.”

So, do we have confirmation on when exactly the yellow golf balls will hit the market? Not just yet…

“While we can’t share any more details than this update, we did want to make sure we confirmed this exciting news to all of you as soon as possible.

So stay tuned for more updates and details later in the year.”
