Legendary golf pro Tiger Woods took the world by storm just a couple of weeks before the kick-off of the US Open and on the eve of 2018 Memorial Tournament, as he announced on Wednesday morning via social media (Instagram) that he's planning to switch to TaylorMade Milled Grind Wedges. The TaylorMade Milled Grind Wedges were launched last season and they're currently being used by a number of notorious golf pros, the likes of Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy or Justin Rose, to name just a few, together with various other TaylorMade staff golfers. And now, the legend is joining this select club, a move which should make TaylorMade very proud and happy, to say the least. Their Milled Grind Wedges boast tiny lines that cover parts of the back of each wedge, together with the sole, and they're engineered via a milling tool that shaves little shreds of carbon steel off as it passes back and forth across the club, until the desired shape is achieved. Using this particular milling process, the company seeks to provide players with more consistency from club to club, or at least that's what TaylorMade claims.

The explanation is that milling the wedges in this fashion completely eliminates hand grinding, which is usually necessary to “fine-tune” the final shape of the sole. As the human factor is out of the equation, the Milled Grind Wedges are quasi-identical from batch to batch, hence the consistency factor that comes into play. And maybe that's why Tiger Woods finally went for Milled Grind Wedges from TaylorMade. His announcement that he's planning to take these babies for a spin on the golf course means that Tiger Woods will play 13 TaylorMade clubs, together with his Bridegstone Tour XS ball and the Scotty Cameron putter. Tiger Woods also played with TaylorMade woods back in 2016 at the Hero World Challenge, and after that, he signed an endorsement contract with the company the next year, 2017 respectively. However, he continued to play with Nike irons and wedges, yet thirty days ago he announced that he's planning to switch to a new custom-made iron by TaylorMade.
