Irons & Wedges
Big Bertha OS
Big Bertha OS Irons promote more distance in an entirely new way, led by extraordinary light and strong Exo-Cage that allows us to strategically position weight to increase forgiveness.
More Forgiveness and Ball Speed from New Exo-Cage Technology
The uniquely light-and-strong design of the Exo-Cage allows more weight to be positioned in strategic locations to increase forgiveness while also helping our next-generation 360 Face Cup technology to function more efficiently.
Even More Ball Speed from Next Gen 360 Face Cup
Next-generation 360 Face Cup technology elevates clubface COR closer to the USGA limit to produce even faster ball speeds and more distance.
Higher Launch for Longer Carry from Tungsten-Loaded Standing Wave
Tungsten-Loaded Standing Wave technology in the sole lowers the center of gravity to promote a higher launch angle for longer carry and more ball speed on hits low on the face.
The newest addition to the XR family, Steelhead XR Irons, combine the beautiful shaping and playability that made the Steelhead X-14 one of the most successful irons of all time.
More Speed and Distance from Next-Generation 360 Face Cup Technology
Next-generation 360 Face Cup™ technology increases ball speed with greater efficiency on both center hits and mis-hits for more distance on every swing.
Higher Launch and Better Feel from Steel-Infused Polyurethane Layer
A bar of steel-infused soft urethane layer positioned behind the lower portion of the face serves two functions. 1) Absorbs unwanted vibration for great feel. 2) The integration of steel into the urethane adds weight, which lowers the head’s Center of Gravity for faster ball speed on low hits and higher launch characteristics.
More Forgiveness from Hollow Bore-Thru Hosel Design
Hollow Bore-Thru hosel design saves significant weight that’s repositioned in strategic places in the head to create more forgiveness and easier launch.
Distance With Playability
This is our first face cup in a forged players iron. We’ve taken our industry-leading 360 Face Cup technology that’s redefined ball speed in fairway woods and irons, and precision engineered the face cup to give you consistent ball speed across the face in a forged Apex design.
Scoring Performance Through The Set
The progressive offset, sole widths, CG height and notch weighting provide the right balance of ball flight, playability, forgiveness and control for each iron. The longer irons feature more offset where you need it for more forgiveness, while the shorter irons have a more compact shape with less offset for feel and control.
This high tech construction goes through the whole set to create a remarkable combination of distance, feel and control for any player. The longer irons (3-7) utilize the 360 Face Cup to increase ball speeds and forgiveness across the face. In the shorter irons (8-AW), we’ve included a unique engineered face plate to enhance feel and distance control.
Golf Digest 2015 Hot List Gold Medal Winner! For the first time, we’re putting the 360 Face Cup Technology we use in fairway woods into our irons.
Distance Where You Need It
HIGHER BALL SPEED all across the face comes from the same 360 Face Cup technology we put in fairway woods to give you more distance where you need it. Combined with an Internal Standing Wave, this is the hottest iron we’ve ever produced.
Your shots will launch higher and fly straighter. Hollow body construction lets us put the weight where we want it so you get an incredibly forgiving iron.
Advanced, Progressive Looks
The sole designs are what you want to see - wider in the longer irons to give you confidence, narrower in the shorter irons because we know you’ll hit those well. With a progressive, modern topline, you can take one look at the Big Berthas and know that they’ll work for you.
360 Face Cup
For the first time ever, we’re putting cup-faced technology into a cavity back iron. Our 360 Face Cup provides outrageous ball speed all across the face.
Low CG, High MOI
The Internal Standing Wave is the ultimate team player. It’s refined the way that we lower CG, increased MOI and gives the face cup the freedom to provide more ball speed.
New Construction And Shape
An iron built for speed needs a different level of refinement and attention, in this case a 2-piece construction that includes a dual heat treatment. It’s precise, meticulous craftsmanship that XR deserves.
The XR OS Irons are easier to hit, more forgiving, and long with our industry-leading 360 Face Cup technology and wider soles. They’re easy to launch for a ball flight that leads to more distance.
Long With Our Industry-leading Face Cup
We’ve taken our 360 Face Cup technology that’s redefined ball speed in the category, and helped us become the #1 iron in Golf…and we’ve made it even faster. And with the multi-piece construction we’ve implemented a new heat treatment in the face cup for even more ball speed, with a soft heat treatment on the body for better feel.
Easier To Hit
XR OS Irons are easy to launch with a Center of Gravity that’s lower and further back. It’s easy for you to get a ball flight that leads to more distance.
The soles are wider to give you more forgiveness, and it’s easier to get more distance out of every impact location. You’ll feel confident over the ball, and you have the technology to hit good shots more consistently.
3 Grinds For Every Shot, Every Condition and Every Swing
We’ve developed 3 unique grinds to suit the shots you hit, the courses you play and the swings you make. It’s the versatility and selection you need to get up and down from anywhere.
W-Grind: A slightly wider sole. It’s perfect if you play in softer conditions or you come in with a steep angle to the ball. And it’s extremely playable out of all types of bunkers.
S-Grind: Our most versatile option. It’s great for a wide range of conditions (normal, soft or firm), shot types, and swings (moderate to sweeping attack angles).
C-Grind: Designed for firmer conditions and versatility around the green. The heel and toe relief allow for a number of shots, especially opening up the face and keeping the leading edge low.
Progressive Groove Optimization
The MD3 Milled line has Progressive Groove Optimization – A 3 groove package precision milled into the face of these wedges that optimizes spin as you go up in loft. It creates a smoother spin transition from your irons to wedges. The 30V grooves in the Pitching and Gap Wedges are built for shots that require a steep angle into the ball. The 20V grooves in the sand wedges are designed for full shots and bunker shots, and we put in wider 5V grooves in the lob wedges for better control for shots out of the rough and around the green.
Advanced Shaping and Design
Legendary Callaway wedge designer Roger Cleveland took Tour input and blended that with advanced CAD design. The result is a balanced wedge with a high toe profile and a semi-straight leading edge. The weight ports in the back of the wedge gave us the freedom to reposition the weight for better shot-making, especially out of deep rough.
Designed By Phil Mickelson
Phil Mickelson gave direct input to legendary Callaway wedge maker Roger Cleveland, and they worked closely together on this design. They took a Mack Daddy 2 Wedge and grinded out the high toe shape, added the right materials, and had Phil constantly test it on Tour until the look and performance were exactly what he wanted.
The Versatility To Take On Any Shot
This design lets you accelerate through the ball and go after every shot. You can get up and down from anywhere - even on flops, bunker shots, and out of the thickest rough.
A Unique Shape For Aggressive Wedge Shots
This is clearly a different shape than your standard wedge. It has more surface area, 39% more groove area that goes all the way across the face, and the high toe moves the weight higher so that it’s easier to hit shots out of deep rough.
