  • Pros

    This was the only club on the wedges test that scored a maximum in the control and the feel stakes.

  • Cons

    The Z TP didn’t quite perform when it came to escaping bunkers, while the limited bounce and loft options might not appeal to all.

  • RRP £89.00

What we say...

Only one club on the wedges test scored a maximum in the control and the feel stakes…Every single tester gave the TaylorMade Z TP five out of five in both categories; an impressive statistic considering the calibre of the other wedges on show. The Z TP features Z Grooves (named after the machine that cuts them) which have 10 per cent more volume than previous Y grooves, which helps give the wedge more stopping power. Dan noted a fantastically impressive level of control on full-shots, peppering targets with alarming regularity – he also thought the classic teardrop shape was a winner.

The smoked finish also helps to reduce glare – an important quality on the occasional bright and sunny day! As for the amateur testers, 19-handicapper Dave found the club light but reassuringly solid in his hands, while Chris rated this as his best on test. It’s worth noting, too, that the C-Grind sole, which is available on some lofts, makes the club even more playable. It sits tight to the turf and when the face is opened up it is great for those exacting flop shots. The only two criticisms we had of the Z TP was that it didn’t quite perform when it came to escaping the bunkers while the limited bounce and loft options might not appeal to all.

TaylorMade's Z TP wedge features the company's Z groove that promotes increased spin to help stop the ball more quickly.
The Z groove features 10per cent more volume than TaylorMade's previous Y grooves and this larger volume equals added room to channel groove-clogging, spin-killing obstacles such as grass, debris and moisture.
Z grooves also incorporate strong, sharp edges designed to deliver added traction on the ball's cover to promote more shot-stopping bite.
Like all TaylorMade wedges, the Z TP combines a classically beautiful teardrop shape with large rac Feel Pockets on the back side of the clubhead.
The size, shape and position of the Feel Pockets help to channel impact vibration to strategic areas of the clubhead to promote the exceptionally soft-yet-solid feel at impact that TaylorMade wedges are famous for delivering.
The Z TP wedge features TaylorMade's C-grind sole, which was developed on tour to make it exceptionally easy to open the face to play a variety of different greenside shots and also features a smokey-looking PVD finish that's as durable as it is beautiful.

  • 5 out of 5 Another Great Club From TM

    By tegg16

    Once again a great addition to my bag thanks to Taylor Made. After a crazy amount of hype it was clear that this was the club for me, and boy is this true. The wedge offers a solid feel and connection providing plenty of spin and accuracy.  As such a versatile club im always looking for an excuse to break out the wedge.
