GolfToImpress.com: Mickelson using Callaway PM Wedge Hybrid
Golf.com's David Dusek confirmed while speaking with Callaways lead designer Roger Cleveland that Phil Mickelson is using a new PM Prototype Hybrid this week at the U.S open. Although its still in prototype phase Phil himself provided a lot of input in its build.
Previously Phil was using Callaway Golf's FT Hybrid off and on depending on the tournaments course venue.
Roger Cleveland did not divulge any specifics on the club, its design, or the technologies used but Mickleson did speak to reporters saying:
"This is a special club I actually made, taking the back part of the hybrid out so that I can open it way up and get through that thick rough."
Of course its far to early to confirm if this club will make it into retail release but it was still a great find by David Dusek and we felt is was worthy to report on.
It looks pretty good to me, very simple from what we can see from the small image, I can barely make out the word's Callaway & Prototype on it. By what Phil Mickleson is saying it appears the logic is somewhat similar to a wedge with trailing edge relief to help him open it up. That makes good sense if you plan on being in the rough a lot.
