Callaway Releases Mack Daddy Wedges for 2017
Golfers looking for premium wedges will be intrigued by the launch of Callaway’s latest Mack Daddy Wedges, designed by the master Roger Cleveland, which feature less offset, a squarer toe and a straighter leading edge, with that unique shape providing a clean, traditional appearance at address, preferred by tour players, who were closely consulted during the manufacturing process.
Added control comes from progressive CG positioning, in which the CG progressively moves upward as the loft of each wedge increases. This innovation promotes a lower and easier-to-control flight in the higher lofts without sacrificing 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. A Progressive Groove Optimisation system, which employs three different groove patterns to increase spin as loft increases, improves versatility and performance of these wedges.
Elsewhere, the new •R• sole grind gives these wedges 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.
Additionally, Mack Daddy Forged wedges come equipped with True Temper’s Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S200 Blue label shaft (the most popular wedge shaft on the PGA Tour) and a matching blue Lamkin UTx grip custom-designed to promote outstanding traction and feedback to help execute delicate, feel-focused shots.
