TaylorMade TP ATV Wedge

Born from years of research and development as well as extensive player testing, TaylorMade Golf is proud to introduce the ATV (All-Terrain Versatility), a wedge created to offer golfers a simple choice to handle the multitude of shots and course conditions. With its strategically designed sole geometries, the ATV is the most versatile wedge in golf. The ATV’s sole design was designed with every curve, angle and edge serving a purpose to make the club more versatile. Significant relief at the toe, heel and trailing edge reduces resistance and changes how the sole reacts with turf and sand, depending on how the club is positioned at address and how much the face is opened. Each ATV sole is slightly different, depending on the loft. The ATV wedge incorporates a new groove design created by TaylorMade’s R&D department that generates nearly as much spin as its previous highest spinning groove ever, the Z, outlawed in high-level competitions starting last year when the USGA reformed its definition of acceptable groove design. In addition, the flat areas between the grooves of the ATV wedge clubface incorporate a micro-texture that helps hold the ball to impart backspin.

TaylorMade ATV Wedge Detailed Review

Design and Technology

Before this club hit the market, most players needed at least two different clubs with different bounce settings and lofts to execute various wedge shots. With the TaylorMade ATV Wedge features several different nuances on the sole that affects its playability from a wide array of different lies. Since the sole is convex, it will feel less resistance through sand and heavy rough, making even the toughest shots a cinch to play. Instead of having one bounce angle on the sole, the TaylorMade ATV Wedge has several depending on how square or open the clubface is.

The TaylorMade ATV Wedge has innovative all-milled grooves which, combined with the micro-textured face, increases friction at impact and produces an incredible amount of spin while staying within the limits enforced by the USGA. More spin means more control around the greens. Along with a classic-designed clubhead and satin finish, the club not only looks good, it also performs exceptionally well.

How Does the TaylorMade ATV Wedge Compare?

Mizuno S5 Wedge

The Mizuno S5 Wedge is an incredible golf club that delivers incredible distance, spin, and trajectory control. It was recognized by Golf Digest with the Gold rating on their annual Hot List in 2015, and is certainly deserving of that rating.

Xe1 Wedge

The Xe1 Wedge is by far one of the hottest wedges of 2018, and while it is as “as seen on t.v.” golf club, to tell you the truth it is nothing short of amazing. The Xe1 wedge was designed to make every shot from inside 50 yards easier to execute, and this all starts with its rounded leading edge. Compared to other traditional wedges, which have sharper leading edges, the rounded leading edge of the Xe1 wedge limits the clubs’ ability to dig into the turf. This results in better contact more consistently, which will help anyone who struggles with solid contact hit better pitches and bunker shots. No matter what your handicap is, there is something of value within the Xe1 Wedge. Carefully designed to help golfers who struggle with shots from around the green, it’s hard to find an easier-to-hit wedge than this one. If you’re a golfer who is looking for a club that will help them from any type of lie, and especially the tough ones, you should absolutely try the Xe1 Wedge. The Xe1 Wedge is a perfect club for a high handicap golfer looking to improve their game both in and around the green.

TaylorMade ATV Wedge Review

2013 Wedges Test

Even with the wide sole you can still open it up because of the large amount of heel relief in the sole, making it both versatile and forgiving from tight lies. Some testers struggled to get high levels of spin while others felt the leading edge was too rounded. Everyone enjoyed the headshape, classic and the chrome finish is classy. This scored the same overall mark as the bronze award winners when rounded, but the actual score meant it just missed out.

Ratings (out of 10):

Spin/Launch: 6983rpm/28º (Fairway) 2150rpm/36º (Rough)  Looks: Feel: Versatility: 8 Control: 8


2012 Review

Tested by Jon Greathead, 9 hcp.

TaylorMade products tend to make headlines, whether it be their colour, their name or simply their performance. So it's no surprise that there's a story behind the ATV wedges. TM's Carlsbad equipment gurus say that wedges have traditionally been designed to deliver certain types of shots, meaning there were always compromises.

But the firm claims the new ATV has a unique sole design that changes the
amount of bounce for different shots, meaning optimal performance from a variety of lies and surfaces.

I was intrigued to test the new product, especially as my trusty TaylorMade xFT wedges were looking slightly battered. In terms of feel, I actually thought the old and new were quite similar, but the big difference did come with the different lies.

From the fairway on full shots, it sat nicely behind the ball and offered lots of stopping power on the green – but this also translated to tight lies around the green too. The grooves on my old wedges had worn, but I was still surprised by the lower ball flight off the face of the ATV. 

It was also good from the rough – ultimately, weekend hackers such as myself can’t expect Luke Donald-esque control from the shaggy stuff, but the ATV certainly didn’t let itself down.

But perhaps the biggest feather in the cap comes in the confidence stakes – I’ve got a tendency to thin a wedge like no other man on the planet, but the overall appearance, shape and address position of the ATV made me feel far happier with my short game.

Given a bit more time, this wedge will become a mainstay in my bag and if you’re on the hunt for a new one, take a closer look at this because at £89 it offers excellent value for money.

The final thing to consider is that the face isn’t exchangeable, unlike the xFT. We liked the concept in the previous model, but there was always a nagging doubt that we hadn’t tightened the screw properly!
