Years back, Callaway Golf had a hit with their X Forged wedges featuring the original Mack Daddy Grooves. Those grooves were wide and deep and chewed through golf balls. Then the rules changed and the company had to go back to the drawing board. After a few different models, the company and Roger Cleveland created the Mack Daddy 2 wedges. These wedges have proved to be popular ones, which is evident as they are still the companies current wedge despite being released two years ago. That isn’t to say that things have remained completely stagnant though; as time has passed more options have been made available. At first it was just a couple more loft/bounce options with different grinds. Last year, the company released the Tour Grind version. This year, the change is a bit bigger. The company’s newest version of the Mack Daddy wedge is the PM grid, and it will be available starting May 15th.
If you haven’t figured it out already, the “PM” in PM Grind stands for Phil Mickelson. Having combined the talents of renowned designer Roger Cleveland and short game artist Phil Mickelson, the company believes that they have something special.
The first thing that golfers will probably notice about the new wedge is that it’s more than just a different sole grind. The wedge has a unique shape which they say allows the golfer to be more aggressive. The club has grooves that cover the entire face (39% more coverage) and a higher toe. The design adds to the clubs versatility as it allows golfers to accelerate through the ball on all types of shots, be it flops, bunker shots or out of thick rough.
The club is available in four different lofts, 56°, 58°, 60°, and 64°. Retail price for the clubs is $129 each.
