PCF Micro Tour Wedges

TWGT’s new traditional sole wedge design with milled face and Micro-Groove™ scorelines, destined to become a classic

Features:

  • Please scroll down to read comments about the PCF Micro Tour.
  • Available in Bright Satin Chrome plating or Dark Nickel Platinum plating finish.
  • Traditional, narrow sole, classic shape/profile stands as the finest overall shape and set-up behind the ball in a TWGT original wedge design.
  • CNC Milled Face combines with TWGT’s unique Micro-Groove™ scorelines to offer the highest level of backspin available in a wedge design.
  • Micro-Groove™ scorelines are more narrow and closer together than traditional scorelines – the Micro-Groove design allows the edges of 5 lines to contact the ball at impact while traditional lines only allow 3.  This is one more key to the enhanced spin design of the PCF Micro Tour wedges.
  • Designed with TWGT’s unique “zero-bounce heel” – all the bounce has been removed from the heel area of the sole to allow golfers to roll the face open without raising the leading edge.  A key to playability from thin grass and even hardpan.
  • Numerous wedge fitting options in 52, 56, and 60 degree lofts.  LH available in  56 degree lofts.

  1. Thanks Tom,

    My wedges are getting a reputation around the club for being some of the roughest that anyone has ever seen.
    They make other major manufacturers milled wedges seem quite smooth in comparison.
    I love them and everyone who has had a few shots with them is amazed at how the ball checks up on a crisply hit shop.
    My pro has now built a set of the PCF Tours for himself and after trying my wide soles for a few shots a 5 handicapper I know ordered a Tour for himself.
    Great wedges and should have a much higher reputation

    • Peter
      Thank you, very much appreciated. The fact you and the pro like them is very nice for us to know. Reputation is more a matter of spending more marketing money to brag about the model to millions of golfers. What you and the other players think is actually more important to us in our work.

      Best wishes to you in this great game,
      TOM

  2. Hi Tom,
    I have the PCF WS in both the 55* & 60* lofts. Infact I have also purchased a spare 60* head now that you are discontinuing that head.
    If I do not get round to having it made up as a club it will make a great pen holder and paperweight for my office desk.
    When I researched your different wedge head designs I came to the conclusion the the PCF and the PCF WS had identical faces. But my local club fitter, today, showed me the new club that he had just made up for himself.
    This club is a 52* PCF Micro Tour and the face is far smoother than my either of my wedges even though my wedges are 12 months old and have been used very regularly.
    Is there a reason for this difference in roughness or does this just show the opposite limits of tolerance between two club heads?

    • Peter

      You’re just seeing the +/- tolerance on the face milling. It’s a challenge to keep this very consistent over many heads being made because there is always a small amount of face warping that is natural from the casting process when the heads go from 3000* molten steel to cooled. And there certainly can be mistakes made in the production a well such that a head here and there might end up with less milling than what the tolerance is supposed to allow – it just happens in the course of making a lot of heads.

  3. Hi Tom – Is the 56 the same bounce as the 60? I like my 60 and was told my wide sole 55 had a little too much bounce to use on a tight lie. Was thinking a 56 PCF with the same bounce as my 60 would be a better choice for approach shots – but still be good in the sand. Thoughts?

    PS Any plans to ever produce a BeCu set of irons?

    • MALCOLM

      Both the PCF 56 and 60 have the zero bounce heel grind, but the primary bounce on the 56 is 12* and on the 60* it is 8*. I did make the Wide Sole with much less of an actual bounce sole angle because of the width of the sole. We’ve heard from golfers who do play the Wide Sole off the turf and off closely mown turf as well. Best thing I can tell you is just to try hitting some shots from a tight lie with it to see how your release and delivery of the clubhead to the ball is.

      Very doubtful anyone will ever bring back BeCu as an iron head material. It had its heyday in the 80s for long enough for the industry to discover two things about it as an iron head material – 1) it brought nothing to the party in terms of performance, not one thing. It was just a higher density metal that had no potential to do anything different in an iron head design. And it was not bendable to any real extent for custom fitting needs for loft and lie. 2) BeCu dust such as what is generated when you grind and polish a head, was found to be toxic and potentially poisonous. There was a potential for workers to develop Berylliosis if they were genetically pre disposed to get it from the dust of grinding. The problem was there was no known test to determine if a human was susceptible to get it or not. So the factories pretty much adopted a policy of not wanting to take any chances so they began to refuse to manufacture heads from Be Cu. And that killed it as a potential clubhead material.

  4. Hi Tom!

    I am considering expanding my Wishon collection with these wedges! I need a 56 and a 60 and I have two questions:

    1. What are the bounce in these beauties? I cannot find it anywhere…

    2. Can I put Rifle Spinner shaft on them? Would you recommend the Rifle Spinner? I use Rifle 6.0 with my 575 irons and I am very happy!

    Best regards and thank you in advance

      Thanks very much for your interest in adding the PCF wedges to your set !

      All of the PCF wedges are designed with what I call a “zero bounce heel”. That means I put a primary bounce on the sole from toe to just short of the heel area that will be 12* for the 56 and 8* for the 60* – but then the heel area of both wedges has zero bounce. The reason for this is so if you turn the face very open to hit a cut shot of high finesse shot from short, tight grass, the zero bounce prevents the leading edge from rising up so high that it could cause there to be more chance to blade such a shot.

      You can put any 0.370″ parallel shaft into these wedges that you feel you want to play and which you feel fits you well. There is no such thing as one shaft having to be used with any one head design. If you want to play the Rifle Spinner in the wedges, you can do that. or if you want the same exact shaft in the wedges that you have in the other irons, you can do that. There is no right or wrong in this, there is only the matter of does the shaft fit you and would it perform well for you? and that you can only find out when you choose a shaft and install it and play with it.

      Thanks much,
      TOM

  5. I had the pleasure of building my PCF Micro Tour Wedges with Mr. Gary Balliet here in Phoenix and have found that these are the best wedges I’ve ever played. Controlling spin has always been difficult for me with OEM wedges, but with Mr. Wishon’s PCF Micro Tour’s I’ve found complete control. I purchased the 52, 56, and 60 degree wedges and have had nothing but pure enjoyment from them. Mr. Balliet’s knowledge coupled with this product far surpasses anything on the market today. I will never go back to an OEM company and look forward to exploring the other clubs Mr. Wishon has to offer. Thank You!

    • Mitchell:

      Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know how your work with Gary has been !! Golfers sometimes often think that the best part of my “job” is the process of thinking up the designs, creating them, testing and everything associated with coming up with the models. While that is fun, it really stands second to the enjoyment I get when I get the chance to read a comment and experience like yours !! I really do get a kick out of being able to hear that you decided to work with Gary to begin with and that it resulted in you being able to enjoy this great game more than before !

      Thanks much and the very best to you in this great game,
      TOM

  6. I have a set of 771 in left hand & a 52 & 56 wedge. Am very happy with the clubs – they are excellent. Will you bring a 60 degree in left hand out at all in the near future?

    • Duncan
      Sorry for the delay in responding. Our auto notice of the posts was off and no one knew it. Ooops. I am sorry but at present the demand for a LH 60 degree wedge just isn’t enough to justify the tooling cost and inventory investment. I hate to say it, but this is an area in model development that is dictated by statistics, ugh. Never in my 30+ yrs in clubhead design have I seen a LH model sell more than 8% of the units it will in RH. So that dictates what we can do. And believe me, sometimes I push a LH model in areas where the 8% number doesn’t make sense. But it’s not the case with a 60* wedge I am sorry. But I am very pleased to hear that you like the 771’s with the other two wedges !!! Thanks very much for that and for your support !

  7. Hi Tom,

    iron heads weights more as loft increase. It’s obvious that a player need less weight on long irons. That being said, wedge play and chipping are way different from long game. The thing is i don’t understand why the 52° weights 6g less than the 56, and not the opposite. Thank you you sharing your knowledge, and wish you a happy new year.

    • MAX

      We see the 52 wedge as a gap wedge, very similar in use to the pitching wedge in that it is a wedge used more for full swing shots from grassy lies for distances a little shorter than what a PW is used for. But the 52 is also used for less than full swing shots by a fair number of players, for half and 3/4 length wedge shots from grass as well as chip shots too. As such that means the swingweight of the 52 needs to be able to be made to be anything from the same as the PW to 1-2 points higher than the PW, and at a length that might be the same as the PW to about 1/4 to 1/2″ shorter than the PW. the SW on the other hand has always been a wedge used from sand and rough for pitch/short shots around the green. yes, the SW can be used for full swing shots, but it is a wedge that is used as the primary sand club. As such its swingweight typically needs to be MUCH HIGHER than that of the PW or GW and that is the reason why the SW headweight is always made to be substantially heavier than that of the PW or GW.

  8. Tom,

    Huge fan here from Malaysia. Wishon club are the only clubs in my bag other than my putter. Absolutely love it. Had 919 Driver, 915 3/7 wood with 752 4-PW & SW irons.

    The only problem that I have is that there is a noticeable gap between Pitching and Sand Wedge. And I cant seem to find any Wishon AW in left hand model.

    Being a little ocd, I would hate the thought of having to see a another brand for my Wedges.

    Will you have A-Wedge and Lob Wedge in left hand any time soon?

    Regards,
    Wishful Lefty.

    • Wishful Lefty
      We do offer the PCF Micro Tour 52 wedge in a left hand version now. We did add this left hand model into the line last year and it is in stock and available.

      Thanks very much for your interest,
      TOM

  9. Hello! Have a full set of these wedges and love them! Put more spin on the ball than any other wedge I’ve played. Looking to transition to a two wedge set up to add another long iron. I’m going to bend the 52 to a 53 and than want to play a 58 be bending either the 56 weak or the 60 strong.

    Do you have any suggestions as to which one would be better to bend to the 58 and what the consequences of doing either would be?

    Thanks again!

    • Austin
      If you are a very good sand player in terms of being able to control your angle of attack into the sand and control your hands very well, then I would recommend you use the 60 to bend down to 58. That will reduce the bounce by 2* which is just fine for a good sand player who can very well control his entry angle and hands through the shot. If not, if you tend to leave the ball in the sand sometimes, then I would say to bend the 56 up to 58 so that would increase the bounce sole angle by +2*.

  10. Are there two different versions of the Micro Tour wedges, one compliant with the 2010 Groove rule and says “Tour C” and one that is not (just says Tour)? In the USGA database has the following for the markings:

    SOLE: (loft)
    BACK: (W logo), PCF micro, TOUR C
    HOSEL: Wishon, Golf

    The picture on this website, however, does not have the “Tour C” mark, but I see the mark in your 2015 catalog.

    I have a college golfer who plays in USGA events and wants to use these wedges but I need to make sure they are compliant.

    Thank you -Devin

    • DEVIN

      THere was an early version of the PCF Micro Tour that was not conforming so the current version made with the letter C engraved on the back of the head is the only version that is being made and it is the model that is conforming to the USGA rules. So if your wedge(s) have the letter C, you are fine.

  11. Nice wedges, they have managed to replace my Cleveland 588 2.0!!! Lots of spin. very good custom fit by Tom.

    • Thanks Paul, VERY GLAD to hear the wedges are “behaving themselves” for you !!

  12. Just received my new PCF Tour wedges last Friday. Great wedges period. I put a lot of spin on a wedge anyhow and these add to it. They are amazing they even spin out of tall wet grass. And the looks at address are great. Great feel also. that 56 is absolutely the best wedge I have ever had in my hands in over 45 years of playing golf. I see them in the bag until they wear absolutely out.

  13. I have been reading websites and one of the posts. I was wondering how long can you expect to continue getting the spin from these wedges. How often do they need to be replaced? Let’s assume someone plays two to three times per week and hits 30 – 50 balls per week out of the trap for practice. Sand is relatively abrasive.

    Where does most of the spin come from (regular or micro grooves)? Can the wedges be renewed with a regrooving tool? How do you recommend taking care of the wedges to retain the spin characteristics?

    • GARY:
      The vast majority of spin with any clubhead comes from the roughness of the flat areas of the face between the scorelines. The top edges of the scorelines contribute a little to this, and with the Micro Grooves able to put the edges of 5 scorelines on the surface of the ball at impact vs 3 with conventional width lines, then yes the Micro Grooves are helping a little more with spin. But no question the majority of spin comes from when you increase the friction of the flat areas between the lines. With other wedges, this flat face area friction only can come from how rough the sand blast is that is put on the face during the finishing of the heads. And as you have probably seen, normal blasting on the face wears down quite quickly with hitting shots. So with most wedges once you hit 300-500 balls, that friction from the face blasting is severely reduced, and with it, so too is the spin.

      With the PCF’s this is why we mill the face. That face milling does substantially increase face friction over what is possible with sand blasting or glass bead blasting. And the milling lines really don’t wear down anywhere near as close to how a face blasting surface will wear down to become smoother. So even though the glass bead blast we put on the PCF wedges will wear down quickly with use, the milling of the face does not wear that much and will be then working with the micro grooves to keep spin strong longer than is possible with other wedges with normal face blasting and normal scorelines.

  14. I paired these wedges up with some True Temper “Spinner” shafts and find that the stop faster and more consistently with any wedge I’ve ever played. I can count on being able to hit into the ball and have it bounce once and stop. Amazing. I’ve already chipped in several times with these. The 56 degree is great for those high soft shots over a bunker to a tight pin. I’ll be replacing these heads with a new set when they finally begin to show wear. Great wedges, Tom

  15. I am bit of a wedge fanatic even going back to my younger days playing Pitch and Putt. You name it and I have probably played it or tried it at some point. PCF Micro Tour wedges are the best I have ever played, period! I hope Tom and his crew never stop making these because what they have is a perfect blend of looks and performance. We all no that to get better we must keep working on our short game and with these wedges that so called work becomes allot of fun.

    • Neville:

      Thank you very much for your kind comments about the PCF Micro Tour wedges. WE’re very glad to hear that you like them and that they are helping you enjoy this great game a little more!

  16. The Micro-Grooves with the milled face make for the “spinniest” wedges available. Soft hosel makes them easy to bend lie and loft to fit any customer. Have yet to have a customer that isn’t extremely satisfied with them. More like the look of the Dark Nickel Platinum. Some customers haven’t liked the look af the PCF’s heads and they will love the look of the HM´s and vice versa. Will outperform any of the big brands after a correct fitting.

  17. These wedges are fantastic. They are deadly around the greens. The micro grooves make stopping a short pitch shot child’s play. When I fit wedges I let the customer take the demo we found to work the best home to play with and they always come back saying it is the best wedge they have ever played. These have true handicap lowering ability. The most convincing thing I can say is that one of my regular playing partners, who has been a name brand guy forever, put these wedges in his bag and they are not coming out EVER, so he says.

  18. I almost never own a golf club of any kind long enough to put any real wear on it, but I am starting to wear out my 56* PCF Micro Tour so I bought another that will probably go into use next season. I’ve tried a number of different wedges and some of the OEM ones are as good in many respects, but where the PCF Micro Tour shines is right around the greens. It checks up the ball so much better than any other wedge from right around the green. One of my golfing buddies (who plays a very expensive forged wedge) is always shocked at how I can shortside myself and still keep the ball from running out. He swears my wedge is illegal and says I’m really good around the greens, but its the design of this wedge.

  19. Vind u het lastig om spin op de bal te krijgen en de ballen te laten stoppen op de green? De PCF wedges zorgen ervoor dat ook de gemiddelde golfer de bal ” dood naast de pin” kan leggen. De doordachte CNC miiling geven u maximale spin. Deze wedges concurreren moeiteloos met de top wedges in de wereld.

  20. The PCF micro tour is the ultimate spin monster in the 56 and 60. It is a pleasing to the eye wedge. I played an older version which had some face milling, but then saw the newer one and could see what seems to be more aggressive face milling from several feet away. Rub your finger on it and you worry if you are going to take some skin off. I carry a couple of other wedge lines that have face milling, but they are not close to the roughness that these wishons have. You can definitely see it in the wedge play. Softer chip/pitch shots that may not get a lot of spin, this one does. This head is the best on the market.
