It may not have been a year to remember for Rory McIlroy in 2018, but his wedge game was up there with the best thanks to his trusty TaylorMade Hi-Toe.

In 2018, Rory ranked T15 in approaches from 100 to 125 yards across the whole PGA Tour, with an average distance of 17' 5" from the pin, beating his TaylorMade colleagues comfortably, with Dustin Johnson his closest rival at T24.

The Northern Irishman had a sand save percentage of 52.43% using his TaylorMade Hi-Toe lob wedge and he will be looking to continue and improve on his impressive wedge game in 2019, as he hunts for a return to the Major winning circle.

TaylorMade has made some improvements to the Hi-Toe wedge for 2019, adjusting factors of the wedge with the help of the TaylorMade Tour professionals. GolfMagic caught up with TaylorMade at The Kingdom in California to hear all about the new Hi-Toe wedge:
