Callaway X-22 Irons

Filed under: by: golf clubs showcase

We're starting to see more and more "Game Improvement " clubs make their way into the hands of tour players. Two companies for the most part (Mizuno because of their feel and accuracy) , and lately--Callaway, for their forgiveness without playing clunky or losing overall distance. It's nice to see that some of the clubs that are being peddled to us, are actually as good as the makers claim they are. This particular set of Callaways is the weapon of choice of none other than Rocco Mediate--that same Rocco who battled his way to an 18 hole playoff, and then a sudden death playoff at last year's 2008 US Open with none other than Tiger Woods.

A good friend of mine has a son in law who is a Callaway Rep, and he actually dared me to try these. He knows full well that I have been known to write unkind things about Callaway in the past, but these golf clubs are a brilliant example of the amazing turnaround in quality control that has brought Callaway back to the forefront of both technological advancement and craftsman like workmanship. The Ben Hogan Division of their Top Flite Acquisition is still paying tremendous dividends. The last time I was this impressed with Callaway Irons was way back in the days of the Hawkeye Titanium VFT series. Those were well ahead of their time, and very well crafted. These, though not quite as cutting edge, are exceptionally well crafted, and extremely well thought out.
