The year is 2014. Callaway had just launched the original PM Grind built expressly for Phil Mickelson as a one-off prototype to help Phil hit his famous “Phlop” shots. Co-created with Roger Cleveland, arguably the greatest wedge designer in history, the result was a new, high-performance wedge category none have come close to matching. Phil’s satisfaction with the prototype led Callaway to introduce it to the public, in 2015.
Fast forward to today, the two extraordinaires have come together once again to work on improvements to the PM Grind that make it easier to hit three essential shots Phil thinks every golfer needs:
- The Knockdown — a low-flying, high-spinning shot ideal for attacking the pin.
- The Hit & Check – a short pitch that bounces twice and stops.
- The “Phlop” – the high-flying, steep-landing, fast-stopping greenside shot Phil made famous.
The two conferred closely on the improvements necessary to help any player hit these three shots. The result is PM Grind 2019, a truly astonishing achievement in wedge design.
Groove-in-Groove Technology for High Spin Lob & Pitch Shots
Positioning the micro-grooves on a 20º angle in relation to the standard grooves promotes added spin on chips, pitches and lobs.
Increased Offset & Higher Toe for Crisp, Flag-finding Knockdown Shots
Increased offset and higher center of gravity from the higher toe together help players control trajectory on full and partial shots.
C-Grind Sole Configuration for Crisp Contact from a Broad Range of Lies
Generous relief at the heel and toe promote crisp, clean contact from a variety of greenside lies.
