Wilson Shows Traction In Wedge Market

Wilson Staff’s recently released FG Tour TC wedges utilize something that officials at the Chicago club maker called Traction Control (TC) technology to enhance performance on a variety of short game shots, especially when it comes to imparting spin. Much of that comes from the club’s Tour-Y grooves, which Michael Vrska, global director of Golf R&D for Wilson, describe as “aggressive.” He says they are milled for consistency and feature “microspin enhancers” in the form of sets of 11 laseretched lines between each one. Also new to this line are a pair of unique sole options, Traditional and Tour Grind. The Traditional design, offered in lofts of 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 60 and 64 degrees, boast the width, bounce and camber that Wilson Staff technicians believe is best suited for players with medium-to-steep swings. The Tour Grind model, which comes in lofts of 50, 54, 56, 58, 60 and 62, feature thinner effective sole widths for those with a medium-to-shallow angle of attack, and who play a variety of shots around the green. Through custom fitting, these standard 13 models can be bent to 86 unique loft/ bounce configurations.
