Callaway Mack Daddy CB Wedge: Adding Forgiveness To Your Short Gamey

By Drew Mahowald -- 2nd Swing Staff Writer

Short-game performance is paramount for all golfers, from a tour professional down to a beginner and everywhere in between. Maximizing control around the greens is one of the most important factors in lowering scores.

For years, golfers in the mid- to high-handicap range have had limited options when it comes to wedges that actually fit their game. The blade-style wedges, the design most commonly thought of when thinking of wedges, don’t necessarily deliver the performance on mis-hits that those players need.

Meanwhile, the “wedges” that are essentially just higher-lofted irons that come with a game-improvement set lack the spin and control needed around the greens.

How did the models compare? The results might surprise you.

Arm Lock Putting: Simplify Your Putting Stroke

By Thomas Campbell -- 2nd Swing Master Fitter

In April 2019, I tried out an Arm Lock putter for the first time in a 2nd Swing store. Immediately, I was hooked, and I haven’t looked back. I was astonished with my ability to make putt after putt, seemingly in the center of the hole each time.

I would consider myself a decent putter without the Arm Lock technique and I have found success in my competitive career with a traditional method. But due to the simplicity of the Arm Lock putting style, I switched 18 months ago and have committed to the change.

TaylorMade SIM UDI and SIM DHY Utility Irons Deliver Power And Versatility

By Drew Mahowald -- 2nd Swing Staff Writer

Perhaps the most critical decision to make when configuring one’s golf bag is filling the gap between the longest playable iron and shortest fairway wood.

Utility irons have soared in popularity over the past couple of years as the best choice to bridge that gap. The idea behind these clubs is that they have the appearance of a thicker traditional iron and perform like a hybrid.

TaylorMade’s new SIM UDI and SIM DHY utility irons are the newest products to the market in this category. As is the case with all SIM products launched in 2020, the shape of the clubhead plays a pivotal role in the performance.

Mizuno ES21 Wedge Design Improves Consistency

By Drew Mahowald -- 2nd Swing Staff Writer

Mizuno’s reputation over the past several decades has been built largely by producing stellar iron sets, especially forged muscle-back designs.

So, it wouldn’t be surprising if they also excelled in wedge design. The new Mizuno ES21 wedges confirm that, yes, Mizuno is also excellent at wedge design and performance.

Mizuno has decided that the best way to improve short-game performance is to help golfers make solid contact as often as possible. To do this, Mizuno has repositioned weight from the heel into the middle of the clubface.

How High Should Golfers Tee The Ball Up?

One of the most common questions golfers ask is in regards to the appropriate height to tee up the golf ball. A common belief is that the tee height doesn’t matter. Others, meanwhile, believe there’s merit to the popular phrase “tee it high, let it fly.” In this exclusive video, 2nd Swing’s Thomas Campbell and Drew Mahowald used Trackman technology to gather data and interpret the differences between three different tee heights.

Callaway Big Bertha B21 Lineup Delivers Exceptional Forgiveness

By Drew Mahowald -- 2nd Swing Staff Writer

Callaway’s Big Bertha products have been some of the most popular golf clubs on the market over the last 20 to 30 years, with good reason. In terms of forgiveness, there might not be anything better than what Big Bertha products have offered over the years.

Big Bertha products have specifically targeted high-handicap golfers with an emphasis on improving launch and providing better performance when the ball is not struck in the center of the clubface. Optimized center of gravity positions and precise weighting have been key in Callaway’s construction of Big Bertha clubs.

TaylorMade Expands P700 Iron Series With P770, P7MB, and P7MC

By Drew Mahowald -- 2nd Swing Staff Writer

Cleveland Adds to Huntington Beach SOFT Putter Series

By Drew Mahowald -- 2nd Swing Staff Writer

Cleveland Golf knows short game. Most golfers think of wedges when they hear Cleveland Golf. However, Cleveland is also superb when it comes to developing putters. The Frontline putter line from Cleveland was recognized on Golf Digest’s 2020 Gold Hot List for putters.

At the beginning of 2019, Cleveland introduced the Huntington Beach SOFT putter line with five models that are designed to fit all stroke types and deliver an exceptional combination of performance, looks, and feel at a lower price point.

Now in 2020, Cleveland has expanded the Huntington Beach SOFT line and added the Huntington Beach SOFT Premier line. Like the originals introduced in 2019, each new model provides a beautiful appearance, consistent performance, and soft feel.

Campbell’s Corner: Arccos Golf Is The Future of Game Improvement

By Thomas Campbell -- 2nd Swing Master Fitter

As a club fitter, instructor, and playing professional, I have been intrigued by the Arccos Smart Caddie technology and how it can help a player improve. I was hesitant at first, but I can say now that I wish I had started using Arccos much sooner. The data that I can use to improve my game and is so game-changing that I have no doubts it can help anyone.

The setup is actually quite simple. While Arccos comes with stock grips in new Cobra equipment and is available with new PING equipment, I simply wanted to add the technology to my current clubs. So, I regripped my clubs with Cobra Connect Lamkin UTX grips and attached the putter sensor to my putter grip. Then, I just had to sync the clubs to the Arccos Caddie mobile application on my phone and I was ready to gather some data about my swing.

Cobra Adds to MIM Wedges in 2020

By Drew Mahowald -- 2nd Swing Staff Writer

Wedges are perhaps the most overlooked clubs in the bag for most golfers. They’re influential in not only saving many pars, but also creating a lot of birdie opportunities.

Cobra Golf has stepped up its development of wedges significantly over the past couple of years, specifically using a unique construction approach not commonly used to build wedges by other manufacturers.

The Metal Injection Molding (MIM) process is common in the golf industry for other golf clubs, but not necessarily for the complete construction of the club. Cobra has brought that process to wedge construction with the MIM wedges.

Distance Gains Help All Golfers, Not Just The Pros

By Drew Mahowald -- 2nd Swing Staff Writer

Distance has become the name of the game in golf, at least on the PGA Tour. More and more golfers are prioritizing physical fitness in an effort to gain distance and, for the lack of a better term, overpower golf courses.

Bryson DeChambeau has become the poster child for this movement over the past several months. He has packed on 50-some pounds of muscle in his effort to become the longest hitter on the PGA Tour.

Titleist Vokey SM6 Wedges Still Deliver Short Game Performance

By Michael Geiger -- 2nd Swing Staff Writer

Golf is a game of precision.

Famed golf psychologist Bob Rotella once wrote, “Everything that happens from the tee to that 120-yard range is almost insignificant with what happens thereafter.”

For decades, coaches, players, and pundits have stressed the importance of a sharp short game. So many strokes can be saved with tidy play around the green and effective approaches from the fairway with a wedge in hand.

With this in mind, I chose to purchase a pair of Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges from 2nd Swing a couple of years ago, and they have greatly helped my performance inside the “scoring zone.”
