UNVEILED: Bridgestone Golf’s Tour B XW-1 wedge


Bridgestone Golf has a new wedge in their Tour B 2018 club lineup: the XW-1 wedge.

This forged wedge has a teardrop shape, while the Tour Grind sole offers increased relief in the heel and toe. The XW-1 features more weight behind the middle of the head, designed to offer more feel at impact. On the spin and control front, a new micro-milling pattern in each groove helps improve touch.

The XW-1 has two finish options -- Black Oxide and Satin -- and six aggressive loft-bounce combos: 50-08, 52-08, 54-10, 56-14, 58-12 and 60-06 degrees.

The clubs feature the True Temper DG Spinner shaft.

The Bridgestone Golf Tour B XW-1 will be available Jan. 3, 2018 for $139 per wedge.
