Buyers Guide 2017: Callaway Mack Daddy Forged Wedges

Callaway Mack Daddy Forged WedgesRoger Cleveland’s special talent for working with Tour pros and understanding the nuances of what they want in a wedge’s look, feel and performance is what makes him the industry’s preeminent master of wedge design. That, and his unparalleled knowledge of all that’s necessary to bring a wedge from initial concept to finished club is what makes the new Callaway Mack Daddy Forged wedges ultra‐premium. The unique new shape, forged of soft 1025c steel, delivers exceptionally satisfying feel and response on every shot. Less offset, a squarer toe and a straighter leading edge create a clean, confidence-inducing appearance at address to promote crisp contact and command control. Added control comes from progressive CG positioning, in which the CG gradually moves upward as the loft of each wedge increases. This promotes a lower and easier-to-control flight in the higher lofts without sacrific-ing spin, making it easier to attack the pin. Maximum spin comes from the new Mack Daddy 16-groove configuration that incorporates an added groove at the bottom, close to the leading edge, to promote added stopping power, especially on pitches and chips. The new “R” sole grind allows the kind of versatility necessary to play a variety of shots from the types of grasses a Tour pro faces. The defined crescent sole and mid bounce makes a broad range of greenside shots easy to play, from square-faced skippers to open-faced flops and everything in between. Finishes include Satin Chrome with a thin copper strike layer that enriches the surface’s appeal and enhances toughness, and Brushed Slate for a raw look.
