On this page you’ll find our detailed assessment of the Wilson FG Tour PMP Wedge, the pros and cons, and a side-by-side comparison with other wedges we have recently reviewed.
Wilson FG Tour PMP Wedge
The FG Tour PMP wedge is offered in either a Gun Blue PVD or a Tour Frosted option along with 3 differing sole geometries - Traditional, Tour or Wide - each offering different benefits. Coupled with the varying lofts and soles there are a total of 97 combinations in the FG Tour PMP wedge range! That is completely unique to have that wide a variety and undoubtedly Wilson are trying to make inroads in the golf market and win over more customers and followers. As for PMP, this stands for Precision Milled Performance, which has almost become a ticket to play for all manufacturers. Wilson's milled design has 11 deep grooves, with the balance laser etched in order to increase spin. And spin it does! The FG Tour PMP wedge has a possible 97 combinations to choose from and will fit anyone's preference. Fairly reasonable for the Tour Frosted option and custom stamping is a great added optional feature.
Pros and Cons
- Custom badging is a great offer & most of us love any sort of personalization
- 97 loft/sole combinations are a huge drawcard offering any player their exact preferred setting
- Solid, effective design
- Still lacks the demand of the average golfer – not to say it isn’t a great club though
- Distance control not top-drawer due to slightly flexi shaft tip

Detailed Review of Wilson FG Tour PMP Wedge
Design & Appearance
Available in either Gun Blue PVD or Tour Frosted, these wedges are aesthetically appealing.
We actually love the uniqueness of the deep hazy blue finish; only Mizuno has something similar.
Having been aided by the help of a few Wilson Tour players such as Kevin Streelman and Padraig Harrington, Wilson have made this wedge look the part to live up to the high standards and demands of the better player.
A great offering by Wilson is that these wedges can be custom stamped with whatever text you would like on the back of the club-head.
Three different sole options available in each of the lofts that provide an overall 97 combinations that will match absolutely ANY player’s game and preference.
The three sole grinds are Traditional, Tour Grind and Wide and whilst the latter is self-explanatory the first option is a standard size sole and Tour Grind is a thinner sole allowing for more workability and versatility.
In our opinion these sole grinds and loft combinations are what makes this wedge so appealing and different from competitors.
Control / Feel
One standout pro for this wedge is the lack of vibration through impact…it seems exceptionally sturdy and one-pieced on the follow through that most will enjoy.
The ‘active tip’ shaft does also aid the low vibration, but it also increases height. One minor con is that distance control is not quite as consistent as some other manufacturers because of this slightly flexy tip.
We also prefer a lower ball flight in general particularly on longer wedge shots as it reduces the effect that wind may have on approach shots.
Feel on impact is solid, but can’t say a whole lot more than that.
PMP stands for Precision Milled Performance and that solely describes the clubface and how it’s been crafted.
What Wilson have done is opt for 11 deep grooves and the balance are laser etched smaller grooves termed ‘Micro Spin Lines’ that aid spin on all shots whether it be from 100 yards or 15 yards.
In previous Wilson wedge lines they only offered two sole variations and now the Wide option has helped this range tremendously by offering the versatility desired by the better player.
Wide soles are also a huge help to any level of golfer out of a bunker.
Value for Money
The demand for Wilson equipment is not particularly high, but with that being said the Tour Frosted option at $99.00 is a good price and with all the combinations on offer you are definitely going to find something that suits.
Adequate spin, a unique look and custom stamping are all ticks from our side for the FG Tour PMP Wedge, but the Gun Blue PVD may just be a tad pricey at $119.00.
