New Callaway Mack Daddy Wedges for Me!

5 posts in this topic

It has been way too long since I replaced my wedges. Was playing Cleveland cg14's for years and years...with the groove change, I figured they still had more bite than what is now "conforming". Boy, was I wrong!

I was unable to find a 52, 56, and 60, but got the latter two and have had the joy of hitting these wedges. Talk about bounce and stop!  Too be clear, I have only spun a few balls back in my life - when the green was tilted toward me and dry and short! However, these wedges are freakin' amazing. I suspect that they don't play much different than the Rotex wedges, or many other new wedges, but they have reinvigorated my desire to pull off very difficult shots. And, after just a couple rounds, they have saved me several strokes.

So, the 52 is shipping from Amazon as no pro shop or big box store in the Mid-Michigan area had one - ? - which seems strange to me.

My question to you guys is simply this, "Have you noticed a similar change in your shot-making ability when you replaced your wedges?"

Yes brand new wedges can be a lot of fun.  With the new grooves I haven't noticed a difference from previous models.

I just purchased a new to me 54 wedge and I notice a big difference in my shots, a much better difference. I can sweep the ball out of trap now and making more accurate shots around the green. Par 3 165 yards yesterday, I pushed it right into a grove of cedars from the tee, pin high about 20 yards off the green. I used my 54 and pitched from the trees, hit the green and sank a 25ft putt....a great par 3.

How are you finding these now? I'm looking at getting new wedges and have been very interested in the Mack Daddy's.

    • I know what u mean. I found Bridgestone e5 brand new for 14.98 a dozen which is a 50% savings!!!! I wanted to shout it from the roof tops!!!! Bought six dozen...then shouted it from the roof tops. From the response, it appears no one is listening to anything golf ball related being shouted from the mountain tops as my forum entry had 0 replies. But hey!!! GO US!!!! Everybody loves golf ball deals!! :)
    • I agree with the first reply. Take some time away and give yourself an opportunity to recharge. We all have our slumps - even the tour pros. Remember, it's just a way to get some fresh air and exercise!  
    • I had a stretch like that about a month ago. For a few solid weeks (playing nearly every day), I couldn't break 80 for the life of me. I kept shooting 83, 86, 84... that sort of thing. And I think I was just trying too hard to fix everything all at once.  I started to overthink about mechanics and my confidence was low and I was tense over every shot and every putt and it all just compounded into poor scores and frustration. But then I decided to take a few days off and then followed it up with a few good sessions on the driving range where I focused on swinging smoothly and swinging within myself.  The issues I was dealing with seemed to fix themselves.  I didn't change anything about my swing, I just focused on approaching the game with "ease".  And at the moment I am playing some of the best golf in my life! Everybody goes through their slumps. Maybe just take some time away and when you return remind yourself to slow down and play within yourself. I bet that will help a lot!
    • I disagree with this. Let's take Titleist and/or Mizuno for example, the manufacturing tolerances are the same, the heads are all coming from the same factories and they all get assembled in the same building. In terms of design they probably spend much less time on the muscle back irons because there is only so much you can do with a blade design. More time goes into the design, R&D of the AP irons than the blades.
    • I was in the same place as u about 9 months ago. My home course was a very tight challenging par 66 golf course. Between the terrible hooking and the complete inability to get the golf ball in the air and the losing of 14 golf balls during one round I absolutely hit rock bottom. I was terribly depressed, angry, and heart broken. Unlike most everyone I know, golf is the only interest I possess other than my family. I own firearms but I do not hunt. I enjoy shooting and bowling over work but Im not overly passionate about either. My round on that given day concluded with me on 18 25 yards before the green aimed away from it. I retrieved the last 9 balls from my bag and hit every single one as hard as I could into the lake!!! I yelled, I cussed, I screamed, I behaved like an absolute lunatic. Broken and ashamed, I returned to my car and swore that no matter what I was done for six weeks. I had lost control and track of my priorities. I was holding golf above all else including my beautiful wife and amazing young son. Im ashamed to admit that esp publicly, but golf had consumed me. It was hell, but for six weeks; no golf channel, no golf browsing, no sand trap visits, didnt touch a golf ball or golf club. After six weeks and re prioritizing my life (getting my shit together) I returned refreshed and re discovered my love for the game. And now Ive dropped 8 strokes from my handicap and have done so while playing much longer more difficult courses. And MOST importantly Ive learned to balance golf with life and things that actually matter. Like family!! If u have reached the point u are at now, u are in danger of becoming me. RUN!!! Dont walk...RUN away from golf before its too late. For six weeks ignore all things golf at any and all costs!! Then come back and see what happens. Hopefully u rekindle your passion, if not, theres no law that says u must play golf. There comes a point where giving it up is the right move. ;) But I bet it doesnt come to that. Best of luck!!!!  P.s. Golf takes a lot of time away from the ones we love. Spend that extra time with those u cherish most.
