The new Tour Preferred wedges from TaylorMade ($129) were designed by industry veteran Clay Long in combination with the company's extensive Tour staff. The result is two different sole grinds that will appeal to the full gamut of players:
Classic Grind: Aimed at players who want a traditional design and shape. Available in 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, and 60-degree models with tour-proven bounce options. Features include slight progressive camber that increases with loft, ample heel relief, and Micro Texture face for enhnaced spin and control.
ATV Grind: Based on the previous ATV design but with an improved, slightly narrower sole design. The new and improved shape provides less bounce on full shots and sand shots but maintains higher bounce performance on open-face shots. Available in 54, 56, 58, and 60-degree models, all with the same Micro Texture face as the Classic Grind.
The Classic Grind will be available on 4/18 while the ATV Grind hits retail on 6/15.
