Any player serious about their game knows that have a great short game is crucial to lowering your score. Nike Golf, with the input of professional athletes, today announced the Nike VR Forged wedge family. Available now at retail, the line is highly crafted, and constructed to deliver better consistency and long-life groove performance.

With Nike Golf Tour athletes in mind, the collection features three distinct sole grinds:

  • Standard Grind: The VR Forged wedge with a standard grind is the most versatile profile for all conditions. This sole grind, which was inspired by feedback from Tiger Woods, ensures the correct address position without the need to open the face. This wedge is for the athlete who likes a multiple wedge system in their bag where loft is the primary difference.
  • Dual Narrow Grind: Featuring a dual narrow grind, the VR Forged wedge has a narrow sole width with higher bounce and extreme heel relief. The wedge sits low to the ball whether the face is square or open. The dual narrow grind was influenced by Nike athlete Paul Casey, who likes to create more shots with fewer wedges.
  • Dual Wide Grind: Through research in conjunction with Nike Golf’s European Tour staff, who often face very wet conditions and heavy morning dew, Nike created the VR Forged wedge with a Dual Wide Grind. With the help of Nike athlete Francesco Molinari, club experts found that the Dual Wide Grind has all the benefits of a wider sole with a low bounce. The easiest of the three grinds from any location around the green, this wedge is designed to get the ball up high in the air with ease. This grind allows the athlete to be accurate from the bunker but still deadly from the narrow lies. The Dual Wide Grind is an excellent second or third wedge option.

The new wedges are available now at select retailers and are priced at $129.99. Athletes will have the choice of two finishes,  Tour Satin and Black Oxide, and will have several options when it comes to loft. Check the full details and options below:
