The Harry Taylor Design Wedge has a different design, a design that features dimples on a wide sole making it more forgiving and easier to hit out of the sand. The dimples add surface area (just like dimples work on a golf ball!) so these wedges have more surface area per square inch than any wedge in existence. The result, in the sand the extra surface area created by the dimples keeps the club from digging, the club glides effortlessly through the sand sending your ball on to the green. On the flip side, when the sole is moving through something firmer like taking a divot in the rough, those same dimples decrease the surface area coming in contact with the dirt. The sole just glides through the turf like a hot knife through butter. We call it Turf Dynamics. You can call it easy.
Look at every sand wedge you’ve ever owned, then the ones in your playing partner’s bags and you’ll see the same thing; thin, smooth soles that don’t have a ton of surface area and lack forgiveness in the sand. If you would like to get out of the sand the first time, every time there is an answer. And it’s not you, it’s not even your technique, it’s in the design of your sand wedge.
We think the enemy isn’t the bunker, it’s that thin soled, unforgiving sand wedge.
Because Harry has spent the last few years working on the perfect sand wedge for the amateur golfer, there is finally a wedge made just for you, one that will work in the sand even if you can’t practice every day. We know, we’ve tested the Harry Taylor 405 with hundreds of golfer’s just like you. 10 handicaps, 20 handicappers, no handicaps, righties and lefties with the same results… Everyone gets out of the sand the first time!
Did you know…?
The USGA did a study on the effect dimples have on the flight of a golf ball and discovered…
Dimples matter! A lot!
Without dimples golf balls travel less than 50% of the distance as the same ball with dimples.
Dimples create more surface area on a ball and a cushion of air that enables a golf ball to be more aerodynamic as it moves through the air.
The Turf Dynamics of our Dimple Soled Wedges works in a similar fashion. More surface area, more forgiving. All because of the dimples on the sole.

Brand new research shows….
Patches of flexible, scale-like denticles on the shark’s skin allow it to glide more efficiently through the water.
Millions of tiny “Denticles”, dimple like features, covering the Mako shark’s skin could be the secret to its incredible speed.
Mako sharks are known as the cheetahs of the ocean, rocketing thru the water at speeds of up to 68 kilometers per hour.
So, dimples work in the air, they work in water, that's why we incorporated them for turf.
Set it behind the ball, make YOUR swing, and prepare yourself. This is quite possibly the most forgiving wedge in golf. So, whether you're facing a dreaded half wedge or hoping to get on the green from a deep bunker, if you've got Harry's 405 in your hands you've just changed your game.

My Nephew got me the 56 Red as a gift. He's now my favorite relative! I am amazed how much easier bunker shots have gotten since I got this wedge. I'd recommend these to anyone.Dan Gliwiski
I am not a good golfer and I'm lousy around the greens. Thank God I found these wedges! At least now I can get out of the sand and I don't duff as many chip shots. Really an amazing design. I've got the 52, 56, and 60 degree. If you made a full set I'd probably have them all. Hey Harry, can you fix my slice now?Scott G
