The real difference between pros or nationally-ranked amateurs and the average golfer isn't their ability to hit 300 yard drives.
Sure, the long ball helps. but getting up and down is crucial to the bogey-free rounds that happen so often at golf's top level. And the easiest way to do that is to develop a short game so good that your friends might start calling you "Mr. Short Game" like my friend Matt Fisher. (Check out his amazing YouTube channel.
The right tools help.
Callaway spends millions on R&D not just for the long clubs, but to bring better short game products to the market as well. Having Roger Cleveland designing wedges with input from a wedge wizard named Phil and a gold medal winner named Xander certainly doesn't hurt. But what counts is what you can do with products like JAWS Full Toe wedges, which will be available at retail on September 9.
Do their shapes inspire confidence? Do they provide solid feedback? Do they work as well for full shots from the fairway or rough as they do around the green?
JAWS Full Toe wedges check all the boxes. They are designed to help you with all types of wedge shots, from chips, pitches, flops, bunker shots, and full shots into the green.
Let's start with the long shots. If you're like me you love a full gap wedge shot from 100-110 yards from light rough or a perfect lie in the fairway. It took me years to learn not to go 100 percent of a club's maximum yardage; my best shots seem to be when I dial it back to 90% and flight the ball down a bit.
The new JAWS wedges have a toe pad to move the CG higher, so you can flight the ball better. And a weight port pushes the CG away from the hosel so you get better contact and feel. The C grind is versatile, whether you're hitting a 3/4 or full shot where you want to use some bounce, or something off a tight like where you are digging with the leading edge a little more.
Around the greens, the raw face and groove-in-groove technologies, coupled with the full toe design (with a fully-grooved face) mean spin, spin, and more spin when you need it, like from deep rough, off a tight lie to a tucked pin, or from the sand.
Even the Dynamic Gold Spinner shaft from True Temper has been specially designed for optimum spin. A wide variety of loft and bounce combinations (all the way up to 64) and a choice of raw black or chrome finishes round out the selection process. A complete list of features and benefits follows:
Jaws Full Toe wedges combine full face JAWS grooves, offset groove-in-groove technology and an all-new raw face, giving you the spin and control you need to pull off every shot around the greens.
CONFIDENCE AND VERSATILITY
The Full Toe shape provides more face area with an enhanced toe peak. The shaping works with the specialized C-Grind to make short shots around the green easy to hit, especially bunker shots and high flops. This wedge is built to perform on mid and full wedge shots too, with great turf interaction through the ball so you can stick it close.
The Full Toe pushes the CG higher, for a design that creates a lower, more controlled trajectory. Our Variable Weight Port System helps us locate the CG away from the heel, for solid contact and enhanced feel. Premium Components and Finishes JAWS Full Toe Wedges come stock with a premium Lamkin UTX grip, True Temper’s newest Dynamic Gold Spinner shaft in steel, or a Project X Catalyst wedge shaft in graphite.
