SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?

Published

on

Photos of a new Callaway Forged iron popped up in our GolfWRX Forums, and our members are trying to figure out whether they’re going to be replacements for Apex Pro irons, or whether they’re an update on the Legacy series. They could also be X-Forged irons, but since Callaway recently came out with new X-Forged irons, that would be unlikely.

Here’s what GolfWRX Members are saying:

  • elwhippy: A new Legacy iron? Looks a bit Japanese shaped. 
  • mattTHEkatt: Like an X-Forged/Legacy Black mashup. They look powerful. 
  • DTown3011: …gotta be the next Apex!
  • J13: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • mgholda: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • TheMoneyShot: I thought Cally was going to phase out the Apex name after they released the MBs?
  • john443: A larger cavity in these then the X- Forged… competitor to the 750 and AP3 maybe? …or Legacy Black finally brought to retail…hallelujah. CF16 replacement???!
  • Equipto: These look very sharp, and like thumpers. I don’t care if they are a Legacy Black or Apex replacement, call them whatever… i’ll try them 
  • mrmikeac: Next gen Callaway Apex Legacy? Hmmmm…..
  • Brizam: The Legacy Black might be the best players cavity back ever made.  If they were to become available they’d move straight to the top of the list of clubs to buy for me. 
  • Jourdan M: This is the Apex Pro 

Here are photos of the new Callaway irons we spotted

    To quote PT Barnum, there is a sucker born every minute, and the Marketing of a new club every few weeks proves it, so buy them up fellas, my stock will get better. And don’t forget the new Balls and Woods which are sure to follow. lol

    one thing for sure…they are a full club longer, higher , straighter and easier to hit than the clubs you just bought 5 months ago…I would sell those old ones now before they become worthless.

    These are ‘fake-forged’ irons. They’re cast steel and then ‘coin’ or stamped forged which only affects the surface metallurgy. Not ‘hot’ forged, only ‘cold’ forged. Gullible gearheadbaters will believe anything.

    OoOoOoooh!!! Look at the wicked cavity design. I bet balls fears getting hit with this awesome weapon. What will your golffing buddies say if you have this arsenal in your WITB … 😮

    Great looking club at address. The high frequency grooves look is awful. Glad to see it gone.

      yup the ‘look’ is important since you can’t play worth a snot.

    I play the Legacy Black as well. Great look and hope they bring it out here. Everyone who looks at the Legacy Black just love the top down look and the ‘help’ from the wider sole.

    If Stenson was testing, they’re Legacy. If it was another pro, they’re Apex Pros.

    Looks like the Pro with a bit more weight directly behind the center of the clubface.

    Looks a little i200 with less offset from the top

Photos of Sergio Garcia’s Ryder Cup-themed Odyssey Toulon Atlanta putter

Published

on

Sergio Garcia, who was given a controversial captain’s pick to play in the 2018 Ryder Cup next week in France, is playing in the Portugal Masters this week using a new, custom Odyssey Toulon Atlanta putter with European team colors. The putter has Euro-themed yellow, blue and white paint fills on the sole and back of the head, and stars that represent the European flag on the side.

Using the putter, Sergio’s off to a hot start at the Portugal Masters, played at Victoria Clube de Golfe, shooting a round of 5-under to put him at T6. He discusses the custom Toulon putter here:

Familiar with the style of putter, Sergio used a Odyssey Toulon Atlanta model to win on the European Tour last year, and has used several different Toulon models throughout 2018. The Atlanta model in particular is characterized by Odyssey as a mid-sized mallet that’s “fully milled with a multi-material aluminum sole plate and short-slant hosel.” It also has Toulon’s familiar diamond face milling.

To learn more about diamond face milling and Sean Toulon himself, check out our recent TG2 podcast with him below.

Here are ten 2018 Ryder Cup products available that we think you’ll like.

Another plus about this classy polo is that it’s almost half the price of the official match polos, check it out in more detail here.

Titleist releases new Vokey WedgeWorks Limited 60-degree T Grind

Published

on

The Vokey SM7 L Grind proved to be a welcome addition for those golfers who were looking to excel around the greens on firm conditions. The enhanced heel, toe and trailing edge grind provided the lowest bounce option available from Titleist upon its release.

Now, Titleist has announced the release of their new Vokey WedgeWorks Limited 60-degree T Grind. Just like the L Grind, the latest release from Titleist is a low-bounce option designed for players with a shallow attack angle playing in firm conditions, however, the new T Grind’s dual-bounce sole allows the wedge to sit closer to the ground, making it easier to get the leading edge under the ball and promoting lift. According to Titleist, the dual bounce sole creates a narrow, forward bounce which helps to provide a gliding sensation.

The new Vokey T Grind proved a popular choice at the Open Championship earlier this year, where the conditions were firm and fast. Charley Hoffman and Cameron Smith were just two of the PGA Tour professionals who decided to put the T Grind into their bag for the test at Carnoustie, and Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill explained just why it is such a great option to have on firm golf courses:

“When we arrived at Carnoustie and saw how firm and fast the course was playing, it was clear that the T Grind was going to be a great option. Bob crafted the T Grind to have low bounce that can be easily manipulated while keeping the leading edge close to the turf. It really excels when faced with those hard, unforgiving lies.”

The limited edition 60-degree T Grind features a brand new, ultra-premium Slate Blue finish, and those who desire can even get their T Grind customized. Customers will have the option to avail of Titleist’s personalized stamping of up to 10 characters and in one of 12 paintfill colors.

The Vokey WedgeWorks Limited 60-degree T Grind is available now through Wedgeworks at Vokey.com or by custom order, starting at $250.
