The three new sole grinds were added to VR Forged line after consulting with Nike Athletes: Tiger Woods, Paul Casey, and Francesco Molinari.

Nike VR Forged Wedge Standard Grind

This sole grind, which was inspired by the desires of Tiger Woods, ensures the correct address position without the need to open the face. This wedge is for the athlete that likes a multiple wedge system in their bag where loft is the primary difference.

Nike VR Forged Wedge Dual Wide Grind

The Dual Wide Grind was designed for golfers who play in wet conditions and heavy morning dew. With input from European Tour staffer Francesco Molinari, Nike gave the Dual Wide Grind a wider sole with a low bounce. This is the easiest of the three grinds to get the ball up high in the air from any location around the green. Great from the bunker or narrow lies.

Nike VR Forged Wedge Dual Narrow Grind

Influenced by Paul Casey, who likes to create more shots with fewer wedges, the Dual Narrow Grind has a narrow sole width with a higher bounce and extreme heel relief. The wedge sits low to the whether the face is square or open.

All the Nike VR Forged wedges feature Nike’s high-frequency X3X groves with a precision laser crosshatch pattern that is applied to the land are between the grooves, to create surface texture for more spin in all conditions. This will provide you with more control and consistency in all conditions off of the clubface.
