Callaway Unveils Apex Utility Wood

Callaway Golf has released details of its new Apex Utility Wood which will be available at retail in January 2022.
Callaway says the club’s design and performance combines the best features of higher lofted fairway woods with those of a hybrid, while also delivering a more neutral ball flight that is preferred by better players.
Designed to be used off the tee and the fairway or from the rough, the Apex UW features the brand’s proven Flash Face, Jailbreak Velocity Blades, plus a Forged C300 Face Cup.
Apex performance is delivered through MIM’D Tungsten Weighting (18g per club on average), used to precisely position the centre of gravity. The neutral CG configuration promotes higher launch and steeper landing angles for better stopping power, along with optimised spin rates, all while reducing unwanted draw bias. The clean, compact shape creates workability for better shot-making with enhanced control. All these characteristics help to provide 17% tighter dispersion.
Features & Benefits
High Velocity Ball Speeds From Jailbreak A.I. Velocity Blades
Jailbreak A.I. Velocity Blades are engineered to increase vertical stiffness near the sole of the club, creating more speed low on the face where players often mishit their hybrids. These blades allow the Face Cup to flex on the crown for better spin rate consistency, and the bars are spread to enhance torsional stiffness, leading to more forgiveness all across the face.
Fast Ball Speed From A.I. Designed Flash Face SS21 + Forged Face Cup
Every loft is uniquely designed using advanced A.I. This proven ball speed technology puts an even greater emphasis on centre and off-centre ball speeds. The A.I. face is forged using a high strength C300 Maraging Steel for speed and spin consistency across the face.
High Launch, Consistent Control and Tighter Dispersion
The Apex UW lineup averages 18g of MIM’D Tungsten Weighting per club. The centre of gravity is precisely positioned in a neutral location for an exceptional combination of high launch, steeper landing angles, consistent spin characteristics and reduced draw bias. With 17% tighter downrange dispersion, these utility woods promote impressive accuracy into the fairway or green.
Clean, Compact, Workable Shape
The distinct clubhead shaping is inspired by in-depth feedback from TOUR pros. It’s a compact profile that they want to see and allows better players to shape their shots for enhanced control.
