- In Wedges
Of all the equipment in a golf bag during a given round, the wedges might get the least attention paid to them. Unlike other clubs, it doesn’t much matter what kind of shaft you have in your wedges, and many golfers just pick whatever brand they have for the rest of their irons and just call it good. In reality, wedges are vital to scoring and should be given as much attention, if not more, as the rest of the clubs in the bag.
Flexibility is Key
The TaylorMade ATV wedges were designed with flexibility in mind, and that is a good thing when it comes to the wedge game. In fact, ATV stands for All Terrain Versatility, because you never know what you are going to run into on the course. When you are playing a creative shot from a tough spot around the course, you are usually doing it with a wedge in your hand. Having a club that doesn’t get in your way and allows you to be as creative as you can be is ideal for helping you maximize your scoring efforts.
Changing Bounce Angles
Most wedges are designed with a consistent bounce angle so you get the same degree of bounce no matter how you have the club face positioned behind the ball. That is not true of the ATV wedges. Depending on how you position the club head, you can work with different amounts of bounce to match the shot you are trying to play and the conditions of the course. Usually, firmer turf will require less bounce, while it is helpful to have more bounce when the course is soft. Instead of needing different wedges for different course conditions, the TaylorMade ATV wedges will allow you to adapt on the fly and make the club fit the needs of each shot as you come to it.
Still a Top-Quality Wedge
Just because it has some innovative design on its sole doesn’t mean this club is lacking in quality or feel. It is the same great wedge feel and look that you have come to expect from TaylorMade, and you will have no doubt that you are hitting a tour-quality wedge. With milled grooves across the face of the wedge, you should be able to generate just as much spin with this club as you do with other wedges – if not more. Of course, like any club, you should try it for yourself and see what the ATV might be able to do for your short game.
Offered in seven different lofts from 50* to 64*, the TaylorMade ATV wedges can be used to perfectly fill out your set and make sure you have a club to cover all of the yardages on the course – in addition to your chipping and pitching needs. Before you just buy the first wedge you come across on the rack, be sure to try out the ATV wedges and make up your own mind on how these innovative clubs can transform the short game.
