Callaway Golf is invoking the name of Big Bertha, its iconic line of drivers and fairway woods, in their newest set of irons and hybrids. But they’re not just slapping the name on some new clubs; they’re bringing technology from those woods to these new clubs.
The clubs are weighted similarly to woods, with an internal wave design that pushes weight lower and toward the toe of club to offer forgiveness. However, the weight does not touch the face, leaving it flexible to impart more energy (read: distance) on the ball. The sole of the irons get progressively wider through the set, taking a page from hybrid technology without the hybrid look.
The clubs go on sale at retailers and Callaway’s website on Oct. 17.
