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.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best players iron on the market now?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from drvrwdge and delves into the subject of 2019 players irons. Drvrwdge asks fellow members which players iron they rate as the best of this year, with Srixon’s Z785 proving to be very popular amongst WRXers.

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.

  • swoooshlt: “I’m nowhere near the player I once was, but the Z785 is giving back some of that confidence……, and the feel is BRILLIANT!”
  • KC13: “MP-20 MMC all day.”
  • hypergolf: “I tried all the new iron releases as I am in the market to replace my Mizuno MP60s (TT DG S300). After hours of search, different shaft and head combinations I am going to go with Titleist T100 with Project X 6.0. Historically I never liked Titleist irons and was always a Mizuno iron player, but this year the feel and performance in T100 won me over…”
  • dalillama47: “Z785’s are my vote. Yes, I do play them. I can play anything I want. Between feel, forgiveness and the way they go through the turf, all a tough combo to beat. I’m not saying they are the best, but hard to believe there is anything much better.”
