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 52º or 53º 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.

Forum Thread of the Day: Cobra’s new King F9 “Speedback” driver?

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day revolves around information on Cobra’s latest releases. News of Cobra’s King CB/MB irons, which were created in tandem with Rickie Fowler, were released a couple of days ago, and in the thread titled “Cobra ’19 News?”, GolfWRX members got a peak at what else Cobra has lined up for its followers.

GolfWRX member cbuescher has revealed some fascinating information on possible future Cobra products, dishing out details on what are apparently Cobra’s new F9 drivers.

“F9 drivers look great.  No more F8+…..just one head with three different loft options.  Found out that the old F7/F8 adapters will fit new heads, but new adapters are labeled differently.  They now say STD, +1, -1, +1.5, etc.  The three different loft options will have the standard lofts as 9.0, 10.5, or 12. Drivers and fairways have a similar look as before but they’ve added two “turbulators” on the back of the crown. The driver will have 2 color options.”

GolfWRX forum members were also privy to information gleaned from cbuescher on Cobra’s new fairway wood and hybrid line:

“Fairway woods look almost identical to F8 with the milled face added this year.  Hybrids are a black matte finish and look much better IMO than last year.  Several of you asked about the KING Forged iron.  Unfortunately this club has gone away…they felt like Forged Tech was a better fit for that gap and the King Forged was not needed anymore.”
