Callaway launch X Series Jaws wedges

Callaway has launched its new X Series Jaws wedges, offering aggressively sized Mack Daddy grooves that will conform to the Rules of Golf until at least 2024 for maximum spin and control, as well as C-Grind versatility for precision shot-making.

Crafted by Roger Cleveland, Callaway’s Chief Designer, the X Series Jaws wedges are made of Forged 1020 carbon steel and undergo a Triple Net Forging process to produce incredible feel and consistent sole geometry. They come in two finishes, Dark Vintage or Milky Chrome, and can be purchased with steel or graphite shafts.

“The Mack Daddy grooves featured in Callaway’s new X Series Jaws wedges have been designed to the absolute limits allowed within the Rules of Golf. As a result, they produce incredible shot-making results,” said Roger Cleveland. “We’ll offer these wedges with Mack Daddy grooves through the end of 2010 and feel confident that players will benefit by using them for many years after.”

The USGA and R&A ruling bodies have recently adopted a new Condition of Competition groove specification that applies to play on the professional tours in January 2010 and certain top amateur events starting in 2014. While the Mack Daddy grooves featured in Callaway Golf’s new X Series Jaws wedges do not satisfy this new Condition of Competition, they do conform to the Rules of Golf and may be used in all other rounds, including handicap rounds and the vast majority of competitions. In fact, as noted above, they may be used in tournaments as prestigious as the U.S. Amateur and British Amateur until the year 2014. For the vast majority of golf played around the world, the Mack Daddy grooves featured in Callaway’s new X Series Jaws wedges will conform to the Rules of Golf until at least 2024.

X Series Jaws wedges feature a new C-Grind sole that enhances versatility and delivers precision shot-making by improving turf interaction. This “C” shape of the sole relieves the heel and toe bounce and reduces the sole width. This, combined with Jaws’ tighter heel-toe radius, enhances playability from all lies and conditions. The soft 1020 Forged carbon steel enables golfers to feel tour-level feedback around the greens.

The Mack Daddy grooves found on X Series Jaws wedges were named by Callaway Staff Professional Phil Mickelson, and were designed at the maximum conforming depth and width, resulting in maximum spin from any lie.

The wedges are initially available in loft offerings of 52°, 56°, 58° and 60°, all of which are also obtainable in left-handed models. Additional lofts (50°, 54° and 64°) arrive at retail on December 15th.
