Callaway modify Mickelson’s Open winning wedges


Phil Mickelson shot the ‘round of his life’ to win last year’s Open at Muirfield, and his Callaway Mack Daddy 2 wedges more than played their part.

Now the wedges that propelled the short game specialist to victory have been improved upon, leading to the release of the Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind Wedges.

The wedges feature a new shallow C-Grind sole, a Tour validated head shape and an aggressive grove pattern for greater control.

“A new element to the Mack Daddy 2 line.”

Roger Cleveland, Callaway Golf’s Chief Club Designer, has confidence in the new models.

“Blending one of the most popular head shapes Callaway has ever created with Mack Daddy’s aggressive groove pattern, and adding increased face roughness, has brought a new element to the Mack Daddy 2 line,” said Cleveland.

Callaway Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind: Key features


Shallow C–Grind sole – Relief is ground from the heel and toe, so you can lay the face open while at the same time reducing the bounce angle. This allows for the leading edge to get under the ball with proper sole contact for maximum spin and control.

Tour validated head shape – Crafted by Callaway Chief Designer, Roger Cleveland, the straighter leading edge creates better turf interaction through the ground and the higher toe is a favourite for Tour players.

Forged high performance Mack Daddy 2 groove pattern – 39% larger grooves for 25% more spin out of the rough and increased surface roughness for more spin and control.

Two finish options – Soft Chrome finish produces a rich muted look that reduces glare, while the Slate finish is pre-oxidized to give a Tour preferred, distinctive, non-glare look that ages over time.

The Callaway Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind Wedges come in two finishes, soft chrome and slate. If you’re looking for a set, they’re available in loft options 52°, 54°, 56°, 58° and 60°, and will be available from July 18 with an RRP of £99.
