Get The Latest From Callaway: The New X Utility Prototype Iron Is Here

Callaway teased us for a good part of the summer following its announcement in May of a new X Utility Prototype Iron, available only for Tour Staff. Introduced in May at the Byron Nelson Championship, the X Utility Prototype, available in lofts of 18, 21 and 24 degrees, went into the bags of notable Callaway staffers Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson, among others. Prior to the US Open, Callaway specifically announced they had no plans to market to the public, but would consider it if one of their staffers won.   Whether an intentional marketing ploy, or simply a realistic assessment of the somewhat limited market for this “player’s” utility, the decision paid off later in the summer when Ernie Els won the Open Championship with three of the prototypes in his bag. It helped also that Ernie led the field in greens in regulation and fired a tidy 4 under 32 coming home on Sunday.   As the Tour season progressed, more and more players decided they liked the look, feel, sound and workability of the X Utilities, so much so that players with 10 club deals with other manufacturers (a pretty common arrangement) began lining up to give these a try. Following Ernie’s win golf junkies were salivating with the hope that Callaway would go to market. Well, they have, and the new X Utility Prototype Iron is here at DGW and ready for your bag.   The X Utility is probably not for everyone, but for those among us reluctant to let go of our longer irons, these are the ticket. The X Utilities will be available in the same 18, 21 and 24 degree lofts as those made for the pros, which makes them suitable replacements for your current 2, 3 and 4 irons (or hybrids). They are constructed using a hollow forged body made of 1020 carbon steel and tungsten with a high-strength maraging steel face that produces higher ball speeds than long irons for hybrid-like distance. The hollow construction with a low CG creates higher launch and more forgiveness. The shaft lengths are more akin to irons than hybrids, and there is a lack of bulge radius on the face that helps create a straighter, more consistent ball flight than hybrids.   The X Utility offers something further for the better player that hybrids do not—workability. You can work the ball consistently in either direction, so there’s an element of versatility that allows iron-like control with hybrid distance.   The X Utilities from Callaway are available as a limited edition model (at least for now), with your option of either True Temper Project X PXi steel shafts or Graphite Design G Series 95 shafts. Place your order today at DGW and experience the power of a hybrid combined with the feel and workability of a forged iron.      

Cleveland 588 Altitude Irons: New Product Review

Cleveland Golf just introduced the new 588 Altitude Irons. Constructed with a full hollow body design, these “hybrid irons” are for any golfer seeking distance, height and forgiveness.  Each iron in the set is engineered to provide optimum, flight, forgiveness and feel, according to Cleveland.   The Altitudes have advanced internal weighting that promotes a low and deep center of gravity for both high launch and maximum distance. The company says the center of gravity is 13% lower and 121% deeper compared to a typical game-improvement iron resulting in iron shots that are easier to hit with proper trajectory. This is possible because of the hollow body construction that offers hybrid-like playability through each iron in the set.   Each club offers Face Forged® Technology that enhances ball speed and delivers feel. Cleveland says the Altitudes are designed for customization through a notch in the hosel that allows change in lie angle by three degrees up or down and loft by two degrees weaker or stronger. This is a significant acknowledgement by a company that higher handicap players can benefit from custom-fitting options, as well.   The 588 Altitude Irons are available in 3-SW for both men and women in graphite or steel shafts. Cleveland will begin shipping these new hybrid-irons November16, 2012.   Pre-order your set of the new 588 Altitude Irons at DGW today.

Play Golf All Year With New Nike Outerwear

Fall is here, and for those who live in a four season climate, or in a place where the temperatures fluctuate greatly, that means some of the best golfing weather of the year. Cool, sunny days and firm, fast conditions make for great golf. There was a day when most of us would hang up our clubs following Labor Day and not play again until late March or early April. The reason we used to quit when the weather turned? There was no such thing as cold weather apparel–at least for the golfer. Anyone who played cool or cold weather golf back in the day knows that the clothing was simply not conducive to enjoying a round. Heavy, bulky sweaters and jackets made swinging a golf club a chore. A lack of wind-resistant fabric allowed the wind to cut through even heavy wool sweaters, dissipating the warmth offered by all those layers.   Today, golfers are fortunate to have lightweight, warm, breathable and wind resistant fabrics that make golfing in cooler, and even cold temperatures a much more enjoyable pastime. Consequently, there is no longer any reason to hang up the clubs for the winter. Nike Golf wants you to keep playing golf–all year long. Read the rest of this entry »

Introducing R11 Irons.

This month kicks off the launch of the new and highly anticipated R11 Irons. The R11 Iron is a cast, progressively-sized iron with TaylorMade’s inverted cone technology in the face to improve off-center hit ball speed. They combine the distance-enhancing technology of the Burner 2.0 Iron, introduced the fall of 2010, with the Tour Preferred forged irons, introduced earlier this spring season. The top line thickness starts thin in the short-irons to thicker in long-irons so the offset and center of gravity locations change with each different iron to optimize trajectory and spin. The wider soles and head shape increases forgiveness for an easier launch. The player-focused look and feel creates some interesting talking points. Read the rest of this entry »
