The Callaway Jaws Mack Daddy 5 wedge is one of the products featured in our Editor's Choice 2020 product list.
Callaway Jaws Mack Daddy 5
If you can’t find just the wedges you’re looking for in Callaway’s comprehensive Jaws MD5 line-up then you must be a very fussy customer indeed! This new range features nine different loft options from 46˚ to 64˚, five different sole grinds and two different finishes – Chrome and Tour Grey.
With a name like this, you won’t be surprised to learn that the primary aim is spin, which it delivers in abundance thanks to the new Jaws grooves. These grooves feature a 37° wall angle that makes them sharper for maximum grip and spin from all types of lie, while three raised micro-ridges between the grooves increase the number of contact points with the ball for even more spin.
On the sole grind front, there’s now a new low-bounce version of the W-Grind, featuring added sole taper and heel relief in the higher lofts, but we suspect that for most, the C-Grind will provide enough heel and toe relief to allow you to manipulate the face and play different shots from different lies. The standard W-Grind has more bounce making it ideal from the sand, while the new low-bounce version could be just the ticket for those with shallower swings or who play a lot of links golf.
The complete package
It’s not all about spin though. They look gorgeous in both finishes too with a fairly traditional shape, and they deliver a lovely buttery-soft feel on shots of all lengths thanks to their mild carbon steel heads.

We think you’ll struggle to find a better all-around wedge, but there’s no escaping the fact that spin is the main story here, with the Jaws MD5 really excelling on longer pitch shots and full shots. We’d even hazard that those who have never spun a wedge back in their lives might just surprise themselves with one of these in their hands!
