Callaway offering Tour-Limited, comic-book-inspired wedges

Published

on

Look in just about any golf bag on the PGA Tour, and you’ll likely find at least one customized wedge. But look in the bag of a Callaway staffer — such as Wesley Bryan, or Patrick Reed with his “Shhh!” wedge — and you’ll see artwork; not just a few letters or numbers. That’s thanks to Anthony Taranto who does the stamping, paint-filling and sand-blasting on Callaway wedges for Tour players.

Now, in addition to Callaway Custom program that launched in October, Tour-Limited wedges will be designed by Roger Cleveland, treated by Taranto, and made available to the golfing public. That’s right, you now have a chance at wedges that get the full Callaway Tour Van treatment.

Callaway will be releasing three unique wedges every month that will be blind-auctioned to the public. The trend started with these Ryder Cup wedges in September that sold for $1,010, and will continue this month with colorful, comic-book-themed wedges, which Callaway describes as “old-school Batman meet Hi-Liters.”

This month’s graffiti-style, “Boom,” “Pow” and “Smash” wedges (52-S Grind, 56 and 60 PM Grind) will come with a KBS Tour Custom Series shaft and SuperStroke’s S-Tech grip.

See more photos of the wedges in the gallery below (photos provided by Callaway).

The minimum bid is $650 for the set, and bidding will end on November 9 at 5 p.m.
