Callaway adds Gold Nickel finish to MD3 wedge line

Published

on

If you’re currently in the market for new wedges, you couldn’t have picked a better time. The wedge space is chock full of grinds, finishes and lofts — the options and varieties are seemingly endless.

And a leader in this space is Callaway with its Mack Daddy 3 (MD3) Milled line. Recently, it just extended the line with three new loft-grind options, and now, the company has announced that a new Gold Nickel finish will be made available as well.

The Gold Nickel finish — adding to the Black Satin and Satin Chrome finish options — will be offered in lofts of 50, 52, 56, 58 and 60 degrees, with the Standard-grind (S-grind) and in right-handed only. The S-grind suits golfers who play in a variety of different playing conditions, as this grind is Callaway’s most versatile offering.

Like the rest of the MD3 wedges, the new finish will have what Callaway calls “progressive groove optimization,” which means that the lower-lofted wedges have narrow and deeper grooves like irons, while the higher-lofted wedges have wider grooves for increased spin around the greens.

The MD3 Milled Gold Nickel wedges will be available on July 1 for $129.99 and on Callaway’s website.

    I prefer 2012 Callaway Forged Wedges. A bigger head with a straighter leading edge.

How far do you really hit your driving iron? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing driving irons. WRXer ‘ Dufner’s Waggle’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“I have been through SIM UDI, U510, HMB, U85, CB ProH…I just don’t hit driving irons very straight or very far. I’ll have a day where I stripe it, but on the whole it’s not really giving me accuracy or a ton of distance. Maybe 225-230 at MOST.”

And our members have been revealing the driving iron they use and what distance they get out of it consistently.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Gsea: “My driving iron is a Mizuno True 2 iron. Hit it 200-210. Strictly for tight short par 4s. Love the trajectory.”
  • MtlJeff: “I have a G400 crossover at 20 degrees, I hit it about 225 or so.”
  • COL_B: “I’ve been playing a Srixon U65 18* that I hit 220-235. I can hit it further, but high spin kills it. The Miyazaki Stiff shaft has too much flex, and when I try to really turn on one, it is a hook machine. I recently got a TM TP UDI 2 iron with a C-Taper Lite 110 S that matches my irons. It is 2 in shorter than the Srixon and goes about the same distance, but with a lower spin, and lower trajectory. Carry is 220-225, but it will roll out further than the Srixon if the fairways are dry. The thing is that I really don’t want it to go any further, as I use it on dogleg Par 4s and par 5s where a 250-yard shot gets you in trouble. Straight is the priority with the DI, which is my the Srixon is out of the bag until I get around to reshafting it.”
  • SUPERG: “19 P790 3 iron bent strong 1 degree. C taper 130X same as my irons. It’s going 250 after roll, my fave club. I hit my driver maybe 3 times a round; I hit my 3 iron everywhere else. Just way more reliable!”

Entire Thread: “How far do you really hit your driving iron?”
