Callaway soon releasing the new “Tour Grind” Mack Daddy 2 Wedges

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.
