PGA Tour Caliber Wedges You Can Play: The Callaway Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind Wedge
With Roger Cleveland as the brain child behind this wedge, you know it’s going to be the very best it can be. Callaway has taken the success of the X-Forged wedge and Mack Daddy 2 wedges with feedback from the top players in the world (Phil Mickelson and others) and created a wedge with ultimate precision and control.
The Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind wedge is forged from ultra-soft, 1020 carbon steel giving the feel and feedback needed to control shots from any lie on the golf course. The chrome finish has a soft, almost flat, finish that does a great job of reducing glare. The slate finish is pre-oxidized ensuring that the sun won’t create a glare.
The wedge design has a straighter leading edge, a slightly higher toe with relief near the heel and toe lending to better turf interaction. All of these enhancements provide flexibility when opening the club. It reduces bounce allowing the leading edge to get below the ball during the swing.
The grooves in the Mack Daddy 2 wedge were just scratching the surface with how much spin Callaway was able to produce. Now with some understanding and time to conform to the USGA groove rule, they’ve found a way to create 39% larger grooves for an increase of 25% more spin out of the rough. The new grooves are laser milled micro grooves that increase the roughness on the face.
“Tour pros love how we’ve combines the popular shape and straighter leading edge with the more aggressive mack daddy 2 groove technology. It’s a club they can really use to attack those delicate short game shots.” Roger Cleveland, Chief Designer
The wedges are available in the following options.
The Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind wedge inspires confidence allowing you to attack the golf ball from any lie; green-side rough, tightly mown collars, even bunkers.
