Callaway wants you to mack out its Mack Daddy 3 wedges

Published

on

The only thing better than buying a new wedge? Being able to customize that wedge to your exact specifications. For some golfers, that simply means getting the right shaft and grip. GolfWRXers often like to take it a step further, though, which we support and understand. And the good news for Mack Daddy 3 wedge lovers is that Callaway understands, too.

A new program called Callaway Customs allows golfers to mack out their MD3 wedges with custom paint fill, stampings, loft, lie, shafts, grips and the finish of their choice (satin chrome or matte black). Say you wanted a Matte Black MD3 with red-and-white paint fill, plus murdered out skull-and-crossbones stampings. Maybe you wanted to throw in some white “59” stampings for good measure, just so your golfing buddies know your 58 W-Grind is bent 1-degree weak. You can do that.

Of course, the more you do the more it costs. Custom paint fill will set you back $20 and custom stampings are $15-25. Callaway’s full line of custom iron shafts and grips are available, some of which carry an extra charge.

The price of the wedge I customized — I added True Temper’s Dynamic Gold S400 Tour Issue shaft (+$35) and Golf Pride’s Tour Velvet grip (+$6) — came to $215.99 and would ship to me in 1-2 weeks.

Customize your wedge now.

    Can you send in the MD3 wedges you already bought to have them customized?

    So that means I can get an Custom Edel Fitted Wedge with (less) Stampings for less than a Callaway MD3 Wedge.

    I applaud Callaway but the price for limited extra stampings and paint should not be more than $25.

Published

Our GolfWRX Forum Thread of the Day was started by member devey07 who posted photos of red-white-and-blue Bettinardi Ryder Cup putters with the Paris skyline on the back cavity. On the hosels, you’d think there would be names of the 12 players on the USA team… but that’s not the case.

Jackson? Rice? Who? At the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris, there’s a celebrity match being played with players such as Samuel L. Jackson, Condoleezza Rice , Michael Phelps and more. See the full list of names here.

And some head covers…

Dustin Johnson decided to putt cross-handed mid-tournament at East Lake

Published

on

Dustin Johnson made a weekend charge at the Tour Championship, and it was almost good enough for him to capture the FedEx Cup title (and with it the $10 million jackpot). Although he fell short, the revival gave him a third-place finish at the season finale, after he fired back to back rounds of 67 at East Lake. The most interesting part about his weekend performance? Well, during the sixth hole on Saturday, Johnson decided to putt for the rest of the event cross-handed.

Speaking to the media after the event, Johnson elaborated a little more on the decision (transcript from ASAP Sports)

So how did Johnson perform with the cross-handed technique? Well, the American gained strokes over the field on the greens on both days over the weekend. For the two days of action, Johnson gained 0.63 strokes over the field with the flatstick, which incidentally was more than he managed over the opening two days in Atlanta. However, a missed birdie chance from inside six feet on the 18th hole on Sunday evening doomed his chances of taking home the FedEx Cup.

Johnson is no stranger to making impulsive changes on the golf course. Recently at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Johnson switched his TaylorMade Spider Tour mid-tournament in favor of the Spider-Mini, despite winning the RBC Canadian Open the week previously with the Spider Tour. While earlier in the year, Johnson decided to implement the AimPoint putting technique. A change which didn’t last long, after instructor Butch Harmon told him to stop as he had no idea what he was doing.

With just four days until the Ryder Cup begins, how comfortable do U.S. fans feel about Johnson deciding to putt cross-handed for the biennial event?
