CARLSBAD, Calif., June 27, 2013

CARLSBAD, Calif., June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Through a series of videos
featuring Chief Club Designer Roger Cleveland, Callaway Golf Company (NYSE:
ELY) today introduced the Mack Daddy™ 2 line of wedges. Already played on TOUR
by Staff Professionals such as Phil Mickelson and Chris Kirk, the new forged
wedge features larger grooves for more spin, a soft carbon steel for greater
feel, and custom sole grind options to provide versatility for a golfer's
demands around the green. The Callaway-produced series of videos, titled
"Wedgeducation," feature Roger Cleveland and Callaway's Director or Fitting &
Instruction, Randy Peterson, and are posted on
www.CallawayGolf.com/wedgeducation. The series of videos will guide golfers
through short game tips and provide advice and instruction on how to get the
most out of the scoring clubs. The Mack Daddy 2 Wedges will be available at
golf retailers nationwide and on shop.callawaygolf.com on July 12, 2013.

Detailed in the videos is the new 5V Groove Pattern that is engineered into
the wedges with 56-degrees of loft and higher. This groove pattern provides
wider, more aggressive grooves that increase spin and thus promote more
control around the green. In fact, the new groove pattern is 39 percent larger
and produces 25 percent more spin than its predecessor*.

"Golfers ask their lob wedges to perform a lot of different shots so it's
important to design these wedges to be extremely forgiving and versatile,"
said Roger Cleveland. "And that's what we've done with these new grooves and
the added custom grind options. The MD2's will be a must for the golfer who
wants to perform to his or her best in the toughest of conditions."

The lower lofted wedges also feature the wider grooves, but with a larger
angled draft (20-degrees versus 5-degrees) creating the necessary spin to seek
a back pin or hit certain shots. All of the Mack Daddy 2 wedges feature a
unique Lasered Micro Groove for added face roughness.

There are three custom sole grinds available in the Mack Daddy 2 Wedge line in
both the 58- and 60-degree clubs:

U-GRIND
The U-Grind, which Phil Mickelson inspired, has a concave sole and the
tightest radius of the three grind options, which significantly relieves the
heel and toe. This allows the leading edge to stay low and under the ball when
opening the face to add loft. This grind is versatile in both firm and soft
conditions.

C-GRIND
The C-Grind is also relieved in the heel and toe to prevent golfers from
creating too much bounce when opening the face. The depth of the sole is
narrow to help facilitate proper contact and to allow the wedge to perform in
all conditions, firm or soft.

STANDARD GRIND
The S-Grind -- or Standard -- is relieved in the heel only, and is best suited
for firmer playing conditions. This grind is fitting for the golfer who does
not want to add loft for a shot and insead play it with a square face.

The carefully detailed shape of the Mack Daddy 2 wedges is inspired by
Callaway's most popular wedges of the past -- the X Forged '08 -- and was
honed by Roger Cleveland after thorough consultation with the world's best
players. The wedges will come in two finishes: a Slate finish that looks fresh
from a workshop bench, and a milky Chrome finish with a smoky, muted rich look
that reduces glare.

At launch, there will be 52-, 56-, 58- and 60-degree options available. A
second wave of options will follow in November, including a 47-, 50-, 54- and
64-degree options, and additional sole grind offerings for the 56-degree
wedge.

Callaway's new Mack Daddy 2 Wedges will be available for the new product
introduction price of $119.00.
