Q & A
The classic tinkerer, Phil Mickelson teamed with Roger Cleveland, Callaway’s chief wedge designer, to create the Mack Daddy PM-Grind wedges. Among the motivations for the design was that Mickelson found in playing shots around the green that his impact point on the clubface was often high on the toe, especially from heavy rough. That being the case, the PM-Grind was designed with a higher toe and the grooves were basically extended all the way across the face to improve performance on shots struck toward the toe and/or higher on the face. Additionally, the clubhead design and the U-Grind that has been utilized make this a wedge that can be played easily from an open position, making it a great choice for flop shots and from greenside bunkers. In short, this is a wedge that is masterful around the greens. The PM-Grind is offered in lofts of 56, 58, 60, and 64 degrees and each model comes stock with a KBS Wedge Shaft, which weighs 125 grams. The Matte Black finish, which is popular with Tour players, will rust with use and is a good option for players worried about glare.

Golfers looking for more versatility for shots played around the green. On the PGA Tour, there might not be a more creative player than Phil Mickelson when it comes to the short game. If these wedges were designed by him to help him play any shot he needs around the green, than they can certainly help you execute your short game shots better as well.
TGW gets a look at the Callaway Mack Daddy PM Grind Golf Wedges.
With 39 percent more of the clubface having grooves, in addition to the higher toe and higher CG, the PM-Grind is a wedge that excels from deep rough around the green.
By drilling Weight Ports into the back of the flange, weight is saved and allows the CG to be positioned where it needs to be to make the wedge perform as intended.
“This is a really cool project. This is a project that Roger Cleveland, our chief wedge designer, worked directly with Phil Mickelson on. It actually has grooves all the way across the face. The deep weight ports allowed us to move the CG up higher and towards the toe. It’s got a wide sole with plenty of bounce that makes it really easy to use out of the bunker.”
