Callaway to release “Tour Grind” Mack Daddy 2 Wedges

Published

on

Callaway has announced the release of its Mack Daddy 2 “Tour Grind” wedges, which have tour-validated C-Grind sole designs, as well as straighter leading edges and higher-peaked toes than the company’s original Mack Daddy 2 wedge models.

The Tour Grind wedges were first spotted on the PGA Tour at the Shell Houston Open in April, and players including Pat Perez, Matt Every, Patrick Reed, Freddie Jacobson, Branden Grace, Brian Stuard, Stuart Appleby, Sang-Moon Bae, Danny Lee and Nicolas Colsaerts have all used the wedges on the PGA Tour.

The Tour Grind, or T Grind wedges are available in lofts of 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60 degrees, and will be in stores on July 18 in both Callaway’s Soft Chrome and Slate finishes.

Like the Mack Daddy 2 wedges (click here to read our review of the MD2’s), the T Grind wedges are forged from 1020 carbon steel and have the company’s 5V grooves in the 58- and 60-degree models for maximum spin. The 52- and 54- and 56-degree models have Callaway’s 20V grooves, which produce slightly less spin.

The wedges come stock with True Temper’s Dynamic Gold S300 shafts, and use a Golf Pride “Whiteout” grip with an “acid yellow” accent color that matches the paint fill of the wedges.

Additional Specs

52° – 10° of bounce, 35.375” long, available in left hand

54° – 11° of bounce, 35.25” long, not available in left hand

56° – 11° of bounce, 35.25” long, available in left hand

58° – 9° of bounce, 35.125” long, available in left hand

60° – 9° of bounce, 35.125” long, available in left hand

    Just got a 60.09 with the Project X Flighted 95 shaft and at some point soon will be adding a 56 or 54 bent to 55. I have some of the Cally Mack Daddy wedges already and really like the playability a lot, as good or better than ANY wedge out there imho. The Mack Daddy 2 Tour wedge will probably be a pretty big seller because a lot of folks like the idea of a tour grind. The tour grind no doubt has a lot of versatility and might require a little more practice because of having less bounce.

    Just picked up a 52* and 58* degree in these bad boys at my local PGA Superstore in Irvine today….All I can say is that the Tour Grind is by far the best wedge I have ever played

    Actually, Nike invented the modern golf ball. They were the first to injection mold a core. Just for clarification.

    The best part is that they don’t say “Designed by Roger Cleveland” on the back

    If this means custom engraving as well, I can see myself getting a 54/58 combo. Love the C grind sole

    How exactly would a “tour grind wedge” help the average player, if any?

      REALLY., ?! Callaway are king of innovation ! Are u really saying this is the first product from them that interests you !!

      • Dick

        Jun 2, 2014 at 2:18 pm

        Indeed, that’s exactly what I’m saying.

          If that is indeed what you are saying then you have NO idea what you are talking about. Callaway is probably the most innovative golf company around. Get a clue.

        I’m not sure I’d call Callaway the King of innovation. I think that title would more appropriately go to Ping with the invention of the perimeter weighted putter and irons, then you might give a nod to Taylormade for the invention of the first metal wood or Titleist for the invention of the modern ball. Those are true innovations, Callaway has more or less just piggy backed of those ideas.

          Well, let’s give them props for the original Big Bertha. which is as important as the other paradigm shifts you mention. But I still wouldn’t call them the kings of innovation.

            Yes I thought about that as I was making my post. True they did make the first over sized titanium driver but I guess I kind of see that as an advancement on the metal wood instead of a true innovation. Personally I consider the perimeter weighted putter an irons the most significant innovation in modern times.
