Question:

Guess its no longer secret?

Is Roger Cleveland, who invented the cleveland wedges?




Quote :
With the U.S. Open just two weeks away, some Callaway staff pros have already added what they hope will be a secret weapon to their bag—a new X Prototype Tour Utility iron.

Utility irons certainly aren't new, but the number of Callaway staff players who tinkered with them during the HP Byron Nelson Championship and Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial—including Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Brendon Steele, J.J. Henry and Colt Knost—indicates that players may be willing to experiment with higher-flying, softer-landing irons for this year's U.S. Open. In fact, Els added three X Prototype Tour Utility irons to his bag at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Designed by Roger Cleveland, Callaway Golf's chief club designer and resident wedge guru, the X Prototype Tour Utility irons are hollow like a fairway wood but are more compact. They have added material behind the face to help lower the center of gravity and get the ball up in the air more easily—like other utility irons—but also feature a shallow stainless steel face and a port that can hold either a 2-, 4-, 6- or 8-gram weight.

wonder what's so different about it compared to a hybrid? Looks more pro?

I thought "higher flying, softer landing" kinda stuff is hybrid territory.

Adams already make really small head hybrids.
