Callaway Mack Daddy 3 Review

Mack Daddy’s name comes from Phil Mickelson’s and Roger Cleveland’s innovative crafting with the original high-rotation grooves created by Callaway before several of these wedges were released. The green paint feel complements the Lamkin UTX handle and illuminates the chrome or black nickel finish. The Callaway MD3 also comes with plenty of loft options for right or left-handed players, as well as a selection of grinds. In addition, the progressive groove not only allows you to get a lot of spins but it also rotates properly depending on the loft

Callaway Mack Daddy 3 Chrome S-Grind Wedge


The Callaway MD3 Milled Wedges possess with 3 grooves and 3 grinds for the better flexibility for your excellent swing, course condition or even short.

Mack Daddy 3 Progressive Grooves

The Callaway Mack Daddy 3 wedge has grooves which are shaped differently from the raised wedges, sand wedges, gap, and pitch wedges to adjust the amount of rotation produced. One of the biggest factors that makes these wedges more consistent and closer to the aperture in the groove. The lower loft wedges have a different groove than the higher loft wedge while the higher lofts have more aggressive grooves for greater rotation. The lower lofts also have slightly fewer rotating grooves to control the ballistics, but still, leave enough grip on the ball.

The appearance of the wedge is also not to be underestimated, thanks to the four holes drilled behind the sole. However, these are not just cosmetics as they allow the player to adjust the weight from the sole and move it up above the club head to control the impact and maintain flight speed of the ball

MD3 Three Types of Grinds Review

The Callaway MD3 has three types of grinds, from the newly released S Grind, the wide W Grind, and the C Grind. Each grind is very balanced and if you are really focused on the game and field, you won’t really feel that much of a difference. You will start noticing when you feel like you weren’t performing well and that is where the choice comes in. The heavy or clunky feeling of the usual club is aimed towards a casual market, but with these grinds, that little control and confidence give you a firm, steady feeling. 

The S grind is your traditional wedge-shaped sole with a little relief on the heel, while the more flexible C-grind has a slightly wider sole from front to back, but the heel and toe have more relief. Most professionals recommend the W grind in the higher levels because of its low camber and wide sole combination to provide you with excellent playability and reduced chances of errors. Another good thing about W grind is that it performs as good as any other grind on lush green grass, this is because the heel relief and low-bend hints give you a lot of options for hitting the ball close for a strong impact.

While the S grind is suitable for a wide variety of surfaces encountered by most players, It is recommended for you to check all lofts from 54° up, especially the 58° and 60° booms. Only by experimenting with them can you see and feel the difference in bounce levels and how they benefit the game.
