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.

Modern Classics (Ep. 4): Testing a TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 3-wood

Published

on

GolfWRX recently launched a new 8-part video series, called “The Modern Classics,” in partnership with 2nd Swing Golf. Throughout this video series, GolfWRX’s Head of Tour Content, Andrew Tursky, tests out 8 legendary used golf clubs that are still being played on Tour today. How do the older, less expensive products compare to modern technologies?

In the first three episodes, Tursky tested out TaylorMade’s Tour Preferred MC 2011 irons, Adams Idea Pro hybrids from 2006, and a TaylorMade Rocketballz RBZ fairway wood.

For episode 4, we highlight the TaylorMade Burner SuperFast fairway woods, which were released to the public in 2010. Although they’re more than a decade old, we spotted one in Richard Bland’s 2022 WITB.

The Burner SuperFast fairway woods are currently available for $76.99 on 2nd Swing’s website.

Check out the video at the top of the page for more on the product, design, and how it stands up in testing against a modern 3-wood.

Best wedge for bad bunker players? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing wedges for poor bunker players. WRXer ‘gdb99’ kicks off the thread saying “I’m not good out of sand. I used to be, 35 years ago. I blade shots over the green. It’s all technique, and I need a lot of practice. I know that,” and reaches out to our members who have been sharing what they feel are the wedges that can help him the most.

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.

  • hammergolf: “Ping Eye2 is the best bunker club ever. If you’re blading it you’re not steep enough. Open the face and hit down on the sand. The bounce will stop it from digging too much.”
  • flubberlange: “Try a Vokey 60* in a K grind.”
  • Fwitz11: “I also struggle with the bunker and have found that an open 60 and hitting just behind the ball is the easiest out I have used. Has helped me a ton with not blading it over the green.”
  • lazyjc4: “I’ve hit the best bunker shots of my life with PM Grind wedges.  I look like I know what I’m doing almost all of the time.”
