Phil Mickelson gave his direct input on the design of this wedge. Callaway Golf tries to come up with a wedge, which has the versatility to perform out of deep rough, bunkers, on flop shots, and any of the most difficult shots around the green.
The Mack Daddy PM-Grind has a unique shape with larger surface area, 39% more groove area that goes across the face, and a high toe that moves the weight higher so it’s easier to hit out of deep rough. Mickelson recently played 3 Mack Daddy PM-Grind Wedges at Augusta.
Callaway Golf R&D said that their biggest challenge was increasing the face area, keeping the sole width wide and still hitting the desired club weight. The grooves were also extended out to the toe based on how players adjusted the face for different types of shots.
The Mack Daddy PM-Grind Wedge will be at retail stores on May 15, and golfers can pre-order online starting May 1 on CallawayGolf.com.
The wedge will be available in 56*, 58*, 60* and 64* lofts, at a price of $129.99 each.
