New wedges from Callaway

Callaway has launched Mack Daddy 3 Milled Wedges, the most complete wedge line the company has ever created and said to offer grinds and groove packages for every condition, every swing and every golf shot. Designed by Roger Cleveland, MD3 Milled Wedges offer a choice of three different grinds (S-Grind, W-Grind and C-Grind) and a ‘Progressive Groove Optimisation’ system which employs three different groove patterns to increase spin as loft increases.

The S-Grind is all-purpose and shows its utility across a variety of conditions and swing types. W-Grind has a slightly wider sole and is best for the golfer playing in slightly softer conditions or who has the tendency to come in steep with their swing. 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.

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 control. MD3 Wedges will be available with a True Temper Dynamic Gold Wedge Shaft and Lamkin UTX grip as standard.

Commenting on the new wedges, 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.” More at: www.callawaygolf.com
