    But the logo on their wedges is NOT a shamrock. It’s a four-leaf clover. An entire marketing campaign about the Irish and St Patrick’s Day, based on the wrong symbol! Looks like Callaway has been made aware of this mistake – last night they changed the name of the clubs to Lucky Clover instead of Shamrock!

    Gimmicks to sell bad products wow.. You should have made a forged version and it might would have worked. I have played Callaway wedges from the beginning, the X models are legendary!! But the MD3’s are the worse wedges ever. For the first time ever I bought a different brand wedges this year..I hope you fired who ever decided not to do forged this year.

    Similar feedback from my playing partner. Loves the shape but hates the clicky feel and jumpy face. Forged Cally wedges have always felt great. Not this model though.

Tiger Woods WITB: 2020 PGA Championship (Possible putter switch?)

  • Tiger Woods WITB accurate as of the PGA Championship.

Driver: TaylorMade SIM (9 degrees)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited 60 TX

3-wood: TaylorMade M5 (15  @14.25 degrees)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited 70 TX

5-wood: TaylorMade M3 (19 @18.25 degrees)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited 80 TX

Irons: TaylorMade P7TW (3-PW)
Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100

Wedges: TaylorMade MG2 TW/MT Grind (56-12, 60-11)
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Putter: Scotty Cameron GSS Newport 2
Grip: Ping PP58

  • Woods is reportedly testing a different Newport 2 design. We will update when play begins whether he sticks with the 14-major-winning want or the putter below. Woods practiced with a similar-looking putter ahead of the 2019 Open Championship.

Shaping is similar to Woods’ foe-vanquishing flatstick, but based on images floating around on social media, and if indeed it is the same model shot at last year’s Open, the putter may have a pair of 30-gram sole weights. 

Grips: Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord 58R

Ball: Bridgestone Tour B XS

TaylorMade unveils 2020 PGA Championship staff bag and headcovers (and we’re giving a set away!)

Published

on

TaylorMade has launched its commemorative staff bag, as well as headcovers, to celebrate the opening major of 2020 at TPC Harding Park.

For the first time in its 102-year history, the PGA Championship will be hosted in the Bay Area. To honor the occasion, the staff bag from TaylorMade is accented by the San Francisco Giants’ traditional cream, orange, and black colorway.

GIVEAWAY: TaylorMade PGA Championship Staff Bag and Headcovers! Super Limited!

The commemorative bag also features the TaylorMade logo in the same font used by the MLB franchise and is decorated by eight stars on the bag’s upper with each representing a Giants’ World Series victory.

The three stars in orange signals wins captured in San Francisco, while the five stars in white represent wins in New York before the club’s 1957 relocation.

The interior lining of the bag shows the San Francisco Chronicle headlines that followed each of the team’s most recent championships.

Additional nods to the city include stitching of Lombard Street on the handle, an outline of the city’s skyline on the lower paneling, and an image of the iconic Golden Gate and Bay Bridges across the base.

A WGH insignia acknowledges the 29th President of the United States, and the venue’s namesake, Warren G. Harding.
