Callaway Golf Fusion Wide Sole Irons Approach Wedge

By Lyle@Nymble

The Callaway Fusion Wide Sole irons are a game-improvement iron made of multiple materials and designed for higher handicap players who need a little extra help getting the ball into the air. The Approach Wedge in this set is designed more like an iron than a high-performance wedge, but it does take advantage of all the best that technology has to offer.
 

Sole

The first difference you'll notice on the well-named Wide Sole irons is the extreme width of the sole. This is designed to let the club head glide across the turf and helps high handicappers who tend to hit the ball fat--or strike the ground slightly behind the ball.

Iron Design

Unlike the pro level, high-performance wedges Callaway designs for highly skilled players, the Approach Wedge is made more like a typical iron and takes advantage of all the game-improvement technology available, from perimeter weighting to wide sole to cast steel and multiple material design. The 51-degree model is a gap wedge that fits well between the standard pitching wedge and higher-lofted sand wedge.

Perimeter Weighting

Most high-level wedges are not designed using perimeter weighting technology. The wide sole Approach Wedge, however, is. This enables the average player to take advantage of all the top-tier capabilities of Callaway and still utilize the game improvement component of cavity-backed perimeter iron weighting.

Lefthanded Clubs

With top players like Phil Mikelson on staff, Callaway is tuned into the needs of the lefthanded player more than most golf equipment manufacturers. The classic challenge for lefties has always been finding the same clubs a company makes for righthanders, but in lefthanded models. Luckily, Callaway makes all its Wide Sole Irons for lefties.
