Like other major equipment manufacturers who recently introduced new products, Orlimar has added a new forged wedge to its equipment line-up for 2013. The TourGroove wedge debuted at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla. in late January.
The TourGroove features the traditional tear drop shape and is made from 1025 soft carbon steel with U-Grooves. The wedge is packed with performance features that make it a must in every golfers bag. The soft carbon forged steel provides golfers with a soft feel while absorbing unwanted vibration. The deep cavity back promotes perimeter weighting for more forgiveness on off-center hits. The wide sole allows for a low center of gravity to help get the ball up high on tight lies and bunker shots. The USGA-conforming grooves provide maximum spin for pinpoint accuracy. The TourGroove is offered in three lofts – 52, 56-and 60 degrees.
“The TourGroove wedge feels soft yet gives you a solid feel on the approach shots,” said Alex Resnik, product marketing specialist. “The golfers who have tested the wedge during the development stage liked the look, feel and especially the performance of the TourGroove. The wedge is very consistent in all types of lies and designed to get the ball up high and land soft.”
The suggested retail for TourGroove is $99 and will be available February 15. Unfortunately, it is only available in mens’ right-handed model.
Lofts: 52 /8 bounce; 56/12 bounce, 60/6 bounce
