Mack Daddy gonna make you jump!!!
New wedges from Callaway
Words: Daniel Owen
Callaway wedges have quietly been finding their way in to many of the best bags in the game. They might be known for the Big Bertha, but we love the feel and spin of their forged wedges. Phil Mickelson is obviously a big fan while Danny Lee won just last week using Roger Cleveland’s designs. More importantly, who else out there names their golf clubs after a Kris Kross song?
Crafted and shaped by Callaway’s Master Wedge Designer, Roger Cleveland, the new MD3 Milled Wedges offer a choice of three different grinds and a Progressive Groove Optimisation system which employs three different groove patterns to increase spin as loft increases.
Available in either Satin Chrome or a new Matte Black finish, all MD3 Wedges have been engineered with milled Mack Daddy grooves and laser micro grooves for the ultimate in control.
Roger Cleveland said: “By increasing each groove’s wall angle and therefore the aggressiveness, as you move higher in loft we can now give players better control and the ability to stop the golf balls more efficiently.”
“Typically, a player will create their most spin with around a 50° wedge and their spin will then drop off as they go higher in loft. However, thanks to Progressive Groove Optimisation, our MD3 Wedges generate greater spin as the loft increases, giving maximum control when and where the golfer needs it,”
What he really means to say is that these will spin like a good’un.
Three unique sole grinds are offered to match perfectly to swing styles and typical conditions a golfer may encounter:
The S-Grind is our most versatile, all-purpose grind and shows its utility across a variety of conditions and swing types.
The W-Grind has a slightly wider sole and is perfect for the golfer playing in slightly softer conditions or who has the tendency to come in steep with their swing. Great out of the sand, the W-Grind suits a variety of swings from more steep to more sweep, creating a moderate divot pattern.
The C-Grind is designed for firmer conditions and versatility around the greens. The heel and toe relief of this grind allows for a number of shots, especially opening up the face and keeping the leading edge low.
The MD3 Wedges will be available from September 4th and will cost £109
