Callaway Golf‘s new Mack Daddy CB Wedges, which are at retail from September 24, are designed to offer higher handicap players enhanced forgiveness with precise control and spin around the greens, even when they don’t make perfect contact.
Designed to create a seamless transition from cavity back irons into wedges, player-friendly shaping, a slightly larger head and thicker top line, and Callaway’s proprietary JAWS grooves, combine to offer the confidence of an iron with the control of a wedge.
The brushed chrome Mack Daddy CB Wedges are available in two sole grind options, both specifically developed to promote consistency. In the lower lofts, a full sole provides iron-like turf interaction with moderate bounce. In the mid and higher lofts, a modified W Grind enhances bounce to give greater forgiveness during bunker play and hitting shots from deeper rough. The addition of JAWS grooves, with a precise edge and sharpness, also helps golfers generate lots of spin from a host of lies.
In the Sand and Lob models, JAWS grooves extend across the whole face – an innovation borrowed from Callaway’s PM Grind Wedges, developed in consultation with Phil Mickelson, to give control wherever you hit it.
A KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 105 shaft has been developed in a new lighter weight for Mack Daddy CB, and for players playing graphite-shafted irons, an all-new KBS Hi-Rev G graphite shaft option in 60g and 80g versions, is available. Completing the package, a special grip has been developed in partnership with Golf Pride (the SG-1) that is longer than normal at 11.5 inches, allowing players to choke down on the club for improved distance control.
Available in PW (46°, 48°); GAP (50°, 52°); Sand (54°, 56°); Lob (58°, 60°) options, Mack Daddy CB Wedges will be available in right and left-handed models, priced at £119 per club.
