Callaway launch Mack Daddy wedges in collaboration with Phil MickelsonJanuary, 2015
The Phil Mickelson designed wedges launch today
Callaway today launched its new Mack Daddy PM-Grind Wedges, designed by five-time major winner and Callaway Staff Professional, Phil Mickelson.
One of the world’s finest and most creative short game players of his era, Mickelson worked closely with the Callaway Research & Development team to design and craft the new wedges by utilising his desired specifications.
A distinctive design feature of the new Mack Daddy PM Grind Wedges is the High Toe, which distributes the weight higher in the club, enabling players to make delicate shots from greenside rough easier.
The increased surface area helps inspire confidence to accelerate through the ball and be more aggressive with approach shots.
Mickelson said: “We made this high toe wedge last year. The first time I used it was at the PGA Championship and my short game was phenomenal – it was the best it had been all year.
“I think this wedge is going to have the same impact as some of our other successful club launches because Callaway were willing to take a risk and try some new things.”

Roger Cleveland said: “One of the toughest short game shots is from greenside rough, where the club can easily slide under the ball without making contact.
“To give him an edge in the majors, when the toughest possible course conditions are expected, Phil wanted to create a club that would counter this.
“Phil came to us with the idea for the Mack Daddy PM-Grind Wedges and has been passionate about developing the product to his exacting standards throughout the process.
“After testing every prototype on tour, Phil’s evaluation and feedback has helped ensure the final product offers performance that is demonstrably superior and pleasingly different.”
Callaway’s Mack Daddy PM-Grind Wedges are available in four lofts: 56˚ (RH & LH), 58˚ (RH Only), 60˚ (RH & LH) and 64˚ (RH & LH) with a stock KBS Tour V Wedge Shaft.
