On the face of it, Michael Hoey’s decision to swap his yardage book for a rule book and take up a role as a DP World Tour referee might surprise a few people. By his own meticulously high standards, the Northern Irishman even impressed himself at times with his play...

Master of wedge design, Roger Cleveland, has worked closely with Tour pros to create a premium set of wedges that can be played by golfers of all levels. Forged of soft 1025c steel for great feel and consistency the new Mack Daddy Forged Wedges unveiled today offer a signature Tour performance with a forged wedge head. The new design introduces a new 16-groove configuration that incorporates an added groove near the leading edge for more spin, especially on pitches and chips. As well as the new groove configuration the Mack Daddy Forged have a host of new score improving features.

New shape
The unique new shape of the Mack Daddy Forged Wedges sees less offset, a squarer toe and a straighter leading edge, giving a clean, traditional appearance at address, preferred by tour players.

Progressive CG
Added control comes from progressive CG positioning, in which the CG gradually moves upward as the loft of each wedge increases. This promotes a lower and easier-to-control flight in the higher lofts without sacrificing spin, making it easier to attack the pin.

New groove configuration and Progressive Groove Optimisation
Maximum spin comes from the new Mack Daddy 16-groove configuration that incorporates an added groove at the bottom, close to the leading edge, to promote added stopping power, especially on pitches and chips. A Progressive Groove Optimisation system, which employs three different groove patterns to increase spin as loft increases, improves versatility and performance of these wedges.

•R• Sole Grind
The new •R• sole grind gives Mack Daddy Forged wedges the kind of versatility necessary to play a variety of shots from the types of grasses a Tour pro faces. The defined crescent sole and mid bounce makes a broad range of greenside shots easy to play, from square-faced skippers to open-faced flops and everything in between. Increased Versatility from New •R• Grind A defined crescent sole creates more precision shot-making options in the short game, especially on half shots and off of tight lies.

Tour Issue Shafts
Mack Daddy Forged wedges come equipped with True Temper’s Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S200 Blue label shaft (the most popular wedge shaft on the PGA Tour) and a matching blue Lamkin UTx grip custom-designed to promote outstanding traction and feedback to help execute delicate, feel-focused shots.

The Mack Daddy Forged is available from the 20th of January in Lofts/Bounce of 50°/10°, 52°/10°, 54°/10°, 56°/10°, 58°/8° and 60°/8° and has an RRP of €159. There will be a choice of two finishes: Nickel Chrome with copper strike for a refined look, Brushed Slate for a raw look.
