Varying Degrees: The Newest Wedges in Golf

1 | Callaway MD3
Designed by Roger Cleveland, these milled wedges are available in a choice of three grinds, each with a high toe and semi-straight leading edge. Grooves vary in size matching up with different lofts to optimize spin. From 46–60 degrees. $130

2 | Cleveland RTX-3
The center of gravity is positioned nearer the center of the face of each wedge for better feel, control, and head stability. Available in blade, cavity back, and women’s cavity-back models, each also comes in three grinds. From 46–64 degrees. $129

3 | Hogan TK
Forged from carbon steel, these wedges are individually weighted by their loft, with the mass spread evenly across the back to produce penetrating trajectories, forgiveness, and distance control. V-shaped sole designed to handle any lie. From 48–63 degrees. $149

4 | Mizuno T7
Trace amounts of boron in forged steel heads create durable grooves that are deeper and narrower on lower lofts to produce more spin. Head shapes and grinds vary by loft: straighter in lower lofts, more rounded in higher lofts. From 44–62 degrees. $150

5 | Titleist Vokey Design SM6
In these Bob Vokey-designed wedges, the center of gravity is progressive, varying by loft (higher lofts have higher CG) to create precise distance and trajectory plus enhanced feel. Milled grooves and face texture increase spin. In five grinds, from 46–62 degrees. $149
