Last week we looked at finding the right golf ball to take advantage of the greens at this time of year. This week, we’re looking at how you’re going to land and stop your ball where you want to.

You’ll revel in wet weather as your playing partners struggle.

The old adage holds true that your scores are really decided around the greens. We’ve all heard about how putting is the decisive factor in any round, but if you’re hitting good, aggressive wedge shots then those putts get a lot shorter and easier. That can only be a good thing.

The idea behind Mizuno ES21 wedges is to help you play those aggressive chip shots with as much precision as possible; the perfectly-centred sweet spot and quad-cut grooves delivering high spin and square strikes so that you never have to think about playing it safe.

But, as we keep saying, rainy weather means soft greens that we can really get at with our wedges… if we can control the spin. Mizuno accounted for this too by engineering HydroFlow Micro Grooves that release moisture from the face to maintain the same outstanding spin that you get in dry weather, but with the added bonus of kind greens.

Having performance like this at your fingertips inspires you to go for the shots you’ve always wanted to from around the greens because you know that you can actually execute them. You can’t put a price on playing like that.
