So I was pretty surprised when I found out: (1) that nearly everyone slept on my man Koepka, and (2) I won a Wilson FG Tour wedge for my second place finish in the PGA championship giveaway. I have not swung a Wilson club in while, and I was intrigued to see how their wedge would stack up against my current gamers - which are the Titleist Vokey SM5's. Full disclosure - my current wedges have pretty much lost their spin and I am in the market for some new wedges, so this couldn't have come at a better time.
Luckily, I was able to fully customize the wedge to my specs and order the proper loft, length, lie, grind and custom stamping. I ended up going with the Wilson FG Tour, 58 degree, standard length, 1 degree flat, traditional grind, and stamped "MD2" (I wasn't really sure what to do there and panicked - these are basically just my initials). Oh! I also got the shaft in a S+ KBS rev, which was really clutch because I play S+ KBS C-Tapers. I went with the traditional grind because, on occasion, I've been hitting my L-Gring lob wedge a little fat and course conditions are soft where I play in the north east.
My first impression regarding the look of this wedge was that it is super-clean. The lines are nice and the head is compact. The satin finish also has a matte-quality so that it won't create a glare in the sun. I personally feel that the club looks very inviting to hit, and I felt confident at address.
One thing that I noticed was that the weighting of this club feels heavier than my Vokey's. I didn't weigh them so I can't confirm this to an absolute fact, but at least to me, they feel heavier. That being said, I don't think that is a negative and I think that the club feels really solid overall. I was able to control shots and work the ball both ways, and even flight shots as need be. I have also posted some pictures below of the impact of the shots. As you can see, the face definitely has some grip to it and the balls were checking up pretty nicely. I toe'd a shot, as you can see, and the club was pretty forgiving - flying about 95% of the way to the target.
Another interesting thing to note is that I hit this club against my 54 degree Vokey and was flying it the exact same distance despite it being 4 degrees weaker... So do with that information what you may. I don't necessarily subscribe to more distance is always better, but facts are facts.
As you can tell I was hitting off of synthetic turf in the pictures below, but I also hit some shots out of the rough and sand (though not pictured because it was getting dark). I actually think that the (perceived) heavier weight was advantageous in rough and sand , as the club was able to glide through tougher lies without getting caught up.
All in all I am very happy with this club. I am very impressed with the look, feel and playability and am leaning towards ordering a 54 and be done with my search to replace my current wedges. Thanks again to MyGolfSpy and Wilson for the opportunity, I'll check in and answer any additional questions that anyone might have.
