TaylorMade has managed to impose itself as one of the best wedge makers on the market. But with so many options available to golfers, it can be quite confusing, and finding the right TaylorMade wedge for you can be difficult.

Lucky for you, Golf Avenue has got you covered with an extensive selection of pre-loved and brand-new TaylorMade wedges. We even came up with a list of five suggestions to help you pick the right wedge:

  • TaylorMade Milled Grind 2 Black Wedge
  • TaylorMade Milled ATV Wedge
  • TaylorMade Z-Spin 2017 Wedge
  • TaylorMade Milled Grind 2 Tiger Woods Bounce Wedge
  • TaylorMade Hi-Toe Wedge

1. TaylorMade Milled Grind 2 Black Wedge

Delivers a lot of spin on longer wedge strokes

The main feature of this club is its raw finish face which features on every MG2 wedge. This raw face allows you to buy a refurbished TaylorMade Milled Grind 2 Black Wedge with the confidence that the clubface will deliver all the spin you could need.

This wedge is a versatile club, but it’s also very forgiving. TaylorMade reworked the weight distribution for this model to create a balanced clubhead to help golfers who struggle to hit longer wedge shots. Look for the TaylorMade Milled Grind 2 Black wedge to be your pitching wedge since it’s made for longer strikes.

What we like:

  • The black finish is appealing to many golfers
  • It produces a lot of spin at impact with the raw face
  • Great wedge for mid-handicappers

2. TaylorMade ATV Wedge

The solution for players looking for versatility

The TaylorMade ATV wedge is just as versatile as the MG2. The main feature of this model is its “All-Terrain Versatility” sole, which can adapt to every situation you could be faced with. That’s right, the ATV is one of those rare models to not feature a degree of bounce anywhere on the clubhead, showing off the ATV mark instead.

The ATV sole almost eliminates the chunky shots out of the game to allow you to hit full wedge shots from the fairway with confidence, which means that it’s usually a smart option for a pitching wedge. With its sole being its main perk, you can turn to a refurbished TaylorMade ATV wedge without any worries with performance issues.

What we like:

  • Ideal wedge for high handicappers
  • It can become that “go-to” wedge for some
  • Allows you to move your hands to adjust your bounce

3. TaylorMade Z Spin 2017 Wedge

Perfect wedge for golfers on a budget 

The TaylorMade Z Spin 2017 wedge is perfect for golfers who want as much control over the golf ball as possible when hitting their wedge. Its design is to maximize the spin levels of the golf ball at impact and provide golfers with high spinning wedges.

The high level of spin in the Z Spin is its main perk, making for a very accurate club, especially when you’re near the green. In this case, you might want to use this club as a gap wedge or anything with a higher loft.

What we like:

  • Delivers a lot of spin on every stroke
  • Perfect for working the golf ball near the green
  • It’s a cost-friendly alternative to the top-end wedges

4. TaylorMade Milled Grind 2 Tiger Woods Bounce Wedge

Ideal for players looking for bounce options

Like the black version, this wedge also features the raw face finish, a staple of the MG2 wedges. But the main perk of the TaylorMade Milled Grind 2 Tiger Woods Bounce wedge is its special bounce, designed to the preferences of Tiger Woods.

The TW grind allows golfers to work their clubface as much as they like. The different angles of the TW grind permit golfers to open or close the clubface while still making proper contact with the ground and the ball. With such versatility, you’ll want to consider this club four your sand wedge or your lob wedge.

What we like:

  • It’s a versatile wedge
  • It features the raw finish on the clubface for added friction at impact
  • You can finally say, “I hit it just like Tiger Woods”

5. TaylorMade Hi-Toe Wedge

Perfect for golfers who struggle to hit the middle of the clubface

Finally, we’ve got one of the greatest innovations from the TaylorMade engineers, the Hi-Toe wedge. The TaylorMade Hi-Toe wedge helps golfers around the green by oversizing the clubface of these wedges.

The Hi-Toe has an additional perk in the form of full-face grooves. The grooves of this club run from the toe to the hell, leaving no entirely flat surface on the clubface. While you’ll probably find more use for this club in the form of a lob wedge, it can also serve in these situations:

  • A golf ball sitting up in the rough near the green;

  • Playing a ball out of the sand on the upslope.

What we like:

  • You can open the clubface of this wedge at address
  • The full-face grooves help if you have a hard time hitting the middle of the clubface
  • Ideal clubface to hit high-arching lob shots

 

  

Remember that each one of these wedges is amazing, but that each one of them has its particular set of perks. Identifying the needs out of each of your clubs, in this case, your pitching, gap, sand, and lob wedge, will help you find out which one is best for you.

Until next time,
