After Miguel Jimenez and Padraig Harrington, Mike Taylor may very well be the Most Interesting Man in Golf...the dude will never run out of stories to tell.

 

Awesome wedges!

Nice wedges! When are they going to start making the irons?

Unless you have the name recognition, patience and pxg-esk budget, I don't think you'll be able to get irons from Mike. I know a couple guys that have gone up to artisan to get fit for putters and inquired about irons and they all said the same thing: probably not gonna happen. I don't think Mike has time to mass produce irons. He's so busy with putters and wedges that if they opened it up to irons, it would probably be over a year wait with all the pros wanting him to do some work. I see where Artisan is coming from but I'd rather have quality stuff than something that is quickly looked over and sold to the consumer so they can get on to the next set.

I agree with this. If you want irons made with the same kind of craftmanship I would contact National Customworks and you can get a set of irons hand ground by Don White

Great looking wedges! Did you go and visit him or do it all over the phone?

MT is one of the best wedge gurus!! He's also the most down to earth and genuine guys you'll meet.

 

I was one of lucky guys that went to the Very first Oven trip back in the day. You had to be on staff or Nike sponsored athletes to get invited into the Oven. MT made me a set VR Oven Tour wedges. Still my favorite set of wedges, but I don't game them.

 

Enjoy your wedges buddy!

I'm feeling an irrational hatred that they are in your bag and not mine haha. Just kidding but they do look amazing. Hope they play just as well.

      I was previously playing with a taylormade R15 driver 10.5° for which I was hitting terrible 90% of the time(hooks, slices and short) . This was before I realised what shaft flex it was so when I checked the shaft I realised it was a L flex. I was able to trade it in for a stiff flex Titleist 915 D2 driver and this sorted my problems out. What flex shaft do you use? Do other shafts mess your tee shots up? Let me know 🙂

      Have been going through a complete overhaul of my bag the last 2 seasons. 
      Have upgraded Driver, 3 wood (both Cobra)
      irons just this year with some custom fit M5s
      now looking to upgrade wedges and putters
      Im about a 13 handicap. But have been always been a better than average putter. 
      Looking for a new Blade style putter. Read the recent testing review article but just wanted to see if anyone had any personal recommendations or feed back. 
      Wedges I am open to anything although I have been playing with a 56 and 60 degree last few years. 
      Thanks for reading and look forward to hearing what you guys have to say.

      RW's one word review - FIRM 
      Hopefully you like calluses!

      I've been playing the Lamkin UTx Midsize Reminder for the last season or so, and wanted to see how the Golf Pride Z Grip Align's compare.  My biggest issue with the UTx is the loss of tackiness and grip texture mid round.  I've realized I must have extremely dirty hands because to keep them tacky, I have to clean the grips during my round.  I play in the south, so the necessity for a cord grip is a must.  Hence my gravitation to the Z Grip. Golf Pride hails the Z Grip as the firmest grip model with "heavy cord texture and moisture management."  And indeed it is firm.  I mean really firm, like don't hit one thin.  Ever.
       
      Its also noticeably thinner than the UTx Midsize.  My 6 iron was gripped first with no additional wraps, and that's when I noticed the size difference.  Not to make the same mistake twice, my Fairway Metal was wrapped with 3 additional wraps of tape.  These additional wraps made the grip closest to the size of the UTx Midsize.

      Reminder grips have been around forever, and in Golf Pride's eyes, what's old is new right?  I enjoy a reminder.  I've had grip issues forever, and they help me place my hands where they should be.  Does the Align tech help - Yes.  Is it any better than a standard reminder grip - No.  One downside to reminder grips is they really shouldn't be played with wedges in my opinion.  If you open the club face at all the "Align strip" gets all out of whack and really throws your "align"ment off.  (Currently waiting on the Lamkin Players Cord to come in)
      Final Thoughts
      The Golf Pride Z Cord Align is a great grip if you enjoy a firm feel and need to be "reminded" where your hands go.  I'll play these until the wear out, or want something new, but will not be purchasing again.
