Key Feature: Forged carbon-steel construction, special PM (Phil Mickelson) grind and “Mack Daddy” grooves complement the head shape.

Key Feature: This wedge combines the Zip Groove technology of the CG12 and CG14 wedge with a Dynamic Sole Grind (DSG) feature that enables golfers to play open-faced shots without the leading edge coming up too high off the ground.
