TaylorMade Milled Grind 3
We tested: 46-60° (Low, Standard, High Bounce, Tiger Woods Grind)
Our take: Simpler is better in certain situations. Plenty of testers gave MG3 high marks for its minimalistic look and ability to grab the ball on shots from 35 yards. “The ball is dropping and stopping for me on command,” said a GOLF tester. “I like the satin finish on the head, too. For a day like today where the sun is noticeable, I don’t have to worry about glare being an issue. That’s necessary in Arizona.”

The details: The micro-ribs are just one of a few smart wrinkles TaylorMade added to its face design. Compared to its predecessor, MG3 boasts a scratch finish on the toe area that’s designed to reduce glare at address, as well as a first groove that was lowered slightly — a request that came directly from Tommy Fleetwood — to help with spin and launch consistency.
Subtle changes were also made to the overall head shape (more compact), hosel length (lowered up to 10mm in the lower lofts), offset and toe height to ensure, say, the 46-degree — a new loft addition for 2021 — blends seamlessly with the 9-iron for golfers who opt for an MG3 pitching wedge over one from their iron set.
The overall look and feel of the 8620 carbon steel wedge head was scaled back as well to give it a clean, minimalistic look. And while it might not be as noticeable as in years past, the thick-thin mass design was adjusted for each loft (as high as 6.5mm down to 5.5mm on the lower lofts) to pair the correct amount of spin with ideal launch characteristics.
Multiple bounce options are available, along with a Tiger Woods grind that features a raw face and shaping built for one of the best players of all-time.
