Roger Cleveland-Designed Mack Daddy 2 Wedges Announced By Callaway Golf

Stocks in this article: ELY





CARLSBAD, Calif., June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Through a series of videos featuring Chief Club Designer Roger Cleveland, Callaway Golf Company (NYSE: ELY) today introduced the Mack Daddy™ 2 line of wedges. Already played on TOUR by Staff Professionals such as Phil Mickelson and Chris Kirk, the new forged wedge features larger grooves for more spin, a soft carbon steel for greater feel, and custom sole grind options to provide versatility for a golfer's demands around the green. The Callaway-produced series of videos, titled "Wedgeducation," feature Roger Cleveland and Callaway's Director or Fitting & Instruction, Randy Peterson, and are posted on www.CallawayGolf.com/wedgeducation. The series of videos will guide golfers through short game tips and provide advice and instruction on how to get the most out of the scoring clubs. The Mack Daddy 2 Wedges will be available at golf retailers nationwide and on shop.callawaygolf.com on July 12, 2013.

Detailed in the videos is the new 5V Groove Pattern that is engineered into the wedges with 56-degrees of loft and higher. This groove pattern provides wider, more aggressive grooves that increase spin and thus promote more control around the green. In fact, the new groove pattern is 39 percent larger and produces 25 percent more spin than its predecessor*.

"Golfers ask their lob wedges to perform a lot of different shots so it's important to design these wedges to be extremely forgiving and versatile," said Roger Cleveland. "And that's what we've done with these new grooves and the added custom grind options. The MD2's will be a must for the golfer who wants to perform to his or her best in the toughest of conditions."

The lower lofted wedges also feature the wider grooves, but with a larger angled draft (20-degrees versus 5-degrees) creating the necessary spin to seek a back pin or hit certain shots.  All of the Mack Daddy 2 wedges feature a unique Lasered Micro Groove for added face roughness.
