Hi-Toe has become a company staple for TaylorMade since its initial release. It started out as just a 60 degree but has evolved with more sole grind and bounce choices, full face groves and RAW options with head and loft configurations that will fit every loft gap you need in the scoring end of your bag, right up to your 9 iron.
Today TaylorMade have announced the next generation with the all-new Hi-Toe 3 – the company’s latest evolution of the Tour-proven Hi-Toe wedge. With an intense focus on versatility and added performance on shots closest to the green, engineers have designed a club capable of producing the entire catalogue of short game shots. From low-launching, high-spinning checkers to full-on open-faced flops, Hi-Toe 3 has been meticulously crafted to help golfers unlock creativity and save strokes around the green.
Par-saving up and downs can have a more significant impact than birdies. That’s why so many of the world’s best players have the world’s best short games. What are the keys to delivering in those pivotal moments around the green?
It starts with versatility and imagination—the originality to envision a variety of shots along with the tools and confidence to pull them off. The history of Hi-Toe began on Tour, as TaylorMade product and engineering teams worked directly with Team TaylorMade athletes to develop the original design in 2018. The main request was versatility.
“Our athletes all offered great input individually, but collectively everyone wanted something versatile. They wanted a single wedge that could perform around the greens from deep rough, thick fescue, bunkers with different sands, in wet conditions and from tight lies. That’s a lot to fit into a single design, but with Hi-Toe 3 we’ve done it.” Bill Price, Product Creation, Wedges and Putters.
The Hi-Toe 3 design produces a higher centre of gravity that’s engineered for a lower launch and more spin, delivering even better control and spin properties on full swings.
Advanced versatility in the Hi-Toe 3 begins with the four-way cambered sole, which remains a staple of the original design. The unique geometry allows for a wide sole and the forgiveness associated with high bounce while maintaining a low leading edge, making it playable from tight lies and visually appealing to better players. Trailing edge relief adds to the versatility by allowing golfers to easily and comfortably open the face to manipulate loft, trajectory, and spin on short shots. The large ZTP RAW Grooves feature radii further engineered for optimal spin in various conditions.
New elements that enhance Hi-Toe 3’s versatility include expanding full length scoring lines to all lofts above 54° and the addition of raised micro-ribs. Combined these help generate spin around the green when the face is rotated open on shorter shots. This is the first time TaylorMade has offered full length scoring lines that stretch across the entire length of the face in a 54° wedge.
Raised Micro-Ribs: Milled ribs positioned between the full grooves add texture to the face and are designed for increased spin and performance on partial shots around the green. This technology was first introduced in TaylorMade’s Milled Grind 3 wedge and has now been added to the Hi-Toe family.
An aged copper finish adds a premium aesthetic and will blend seamlessly with the RAW face as it rusts over time.
Hi-Toe 3 is available for order now at retail locations with an RRP of €189. Hi-Toe 3 comes stock with the KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 shaft (115g) and Lamkin Crossline 360 Round 52g grips (Gray/Blue/Black End Cap). Hi-Toe 3 is available in standard bounce (50°, 52°, 54°, 56°, 58° and 60°), low bounce (58° and 60°), and high bounce (58° and 60°).
