In-hand Photos of Tiger Woods’ new TaylorMade Milled Grind wedges

Published

on

Tiger Woods (finally) switched to TaylorMade Milled Grind wedges at The 2018 Memorial Tournament. Woods seemed reluctant to switch from his previous Nike VR Forged wedges to new TaylorMade wedges, even after he switched from his Nike Oven-made TGR blade irons to the his TaylorMade TW-Phase1 irons. But alas, he’s made the change, and we have photos of Tiger’s new TaylorMade Milled Grind wedges.

Based on the photos, Tiger is using a 56-degree wedge with 12 degrees of bounce, and a 60-degree wedge with 10.5 degrees of bounce. As always, he has the wedges equipped with Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips and True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts.

    Just not a Taylor Made fan. The high-toe model is an exact knock-off of the Callaway PM Grind wedge, which costs $60 less than TM (and has been in my bag for 3 years). And I’d prefer a wedge designed by Roger Cleveland & Phil over some guy at TM.

    It’s pretty clear these are artisan, nothing milled grind about them…

      If you can’t center-hit on wedges you are totally incompetent…. miss on the long irons but never on the wedges and short irons.

    Looks like someone was sloppy with a groove sharpener on the 56

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.”
