 Callaway CB Wedge – Versatility Has Never Played Easier

CARLSBAD, CA – The new Callaway CB Wedge is built to deliver short game forgiveness with incredible spin and feel. From player-friendly shaping, premium feel technologies, and the most aggressive groove in golf, this profile is designed for players who want maximum confidence from their short game.

Confidence and Forgiveness from Player-Friendly Shaping and Design
The cavity back design delivers a friendlier shape at address to benefit playability on all types of wedge shots. The larger head size and grooves across the face add confidence at address. On
the sole, a pre-worn leading-edge acts like a skid plate to avoid digging, and it’s paired with higher bounce for even more forgiveness.

Premium Feel
Callaway CB is the first Callaway Wedge to feature our Urethane Microspheres. They’re strategically placed behind the striking area of the face to enhance feel and sound, making the
Callaway CB an incredible feeling cavity back wedge.

Aggressive Spin & Enhanced Control from Jaws Grooves
Featuring Jaws grooves, the most aggressive groove in golf, Callaway CB is an absolute Spin Machine. These grooves have been treated with a face blast to enhance surface roughness on the face, helping to provide spin on short shots around the green. These grooves extend across the face to enable groove to ball contact at every impact location.

Premium Shafts and Grips
The True Temper Elevate 95 is the stock steel shaft, while graphite options are available from Project X Catalyst in 65g, and UST F1 in a WMS flex. We have partnered with Golf Pride to develop a special wedge grip that is longer than normal. This longer grip allows players the option to choke down on the club for enhanced distance control.

Nippon Shaft Wins KPMG Women’s PGA Championship

CARLSBAD, CA – The winner of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship captured her first major championship using Nippon Shaft’s N.S.PRO 950GH S flex shafts in her irons.

The 20-year-old from China shot an 8-under par total at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, NJ with rounds of 67-73-69-67—276. She stuck her approach on the 18th green to 10 feet and made the putt to win by one. She won $1.5 million for the victory and is the second woman from China to win a major.

“Nippon Shaft would like to congratulate the winner of this year’s KPMG Women’s PGA Championship,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft. “Despite being a young player, she stepped up to the plate and played fearlessly and wound up in the winner’s circle.”

The Champion now has two LPGA Tour victories, both coming this year – the PGA and the DIO Implant LA Open, and leads the LPGA in strokes gained approach (shots over 50 yards from the hole) per round.

More than 500 players on the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, European Tour and Korn Ferry Tour use Nippon Shaft’s N.S.PRO and MODUS³ series steel shafts to help gain their desired distance, accuracy, and trajectory.
