Callaway Golf MD5 JAWS Chrome Wedge

351702 Callaway Golf MD5 JAWS Chrome Wedge 1

The new JAWS groove design features groove walls angled at 37° with a tighter edge radius to promote consistently higher spin for precise control. This is a dramatic change from any previous Callaway groove designs.Every wall, surface and edge of each groove is milled into the face using a proprietary horizontal-milled, saw-cut process with a proprietary saw-cutter oriented to mill the groove with exacting precision. The bit is replaced after every 15 clubheads to ensure every groove is cut with maximum precision. That creates a more precise and consistent groove from end-to-end, and from one groove to the next. In fact, we’ve achieved our tightest groove tolerances ever with the new JAWS design. The combination of this proprietary process and proprietary blade is a major part of the “secret sauce” that helps JAWS MD5 promote consistently high spin.

Key Features:

  • JAWS Groove Design
  • 8620 Mild Carbon Steel
  • Optimized Head Progression
  • 2-Year Guarantee / TT Dynamic Gold Tour Issue 115 Steel Shaft / Lamkin UTX (Blue/Black)
