Terry Koehler - The Wedge Guy
Terry Koehler is known as “The Wedge Guy” for good reason. For more than 30 years, he has focused his design energies on the needs of recreational golfers, NOT tour professionals. Since 1992, his patented "Koehler sole" was the first (and still the only) wedge sole to combine both a high and low bounce into each wedge to make them versatile from any kind of lie and any swing path. If you are a reader of his hundreds of blog posts, you know that Terry's depth of knowledge regarding the game of golf, and about the golf equipment industry, goes far beyond wedges.
