Callaway to Launch New Forged Wedges

Written by  on Tuesday, 18 October 2011
Callaway have announced the forthcoming launch of their new Forged Wedges, the much anticipated replacement to the X-Forged Wedges.

The new wedges are the creation of Callaway's chief designer Roger Cleveland and promise to give golfers all the control, spin, and feel they'll ever need when attacking the pin.

These confidence inspiring wedges have been engineered with 21 tightly spaced grooves across the face, ensuring ideal trajectory and distance control. This is achieved through the Triple Net Forging Process.

The Forged Wedges are traditionally styled with a higher toe and straighter leading edge, producing a square look at address.

They will be available in a Trivalent Dark Chrome or a Copper Finish, both of which will no doubt look very striking indeed.

Due for release sometime in February next year, they will retail at £99 (€119 in Ireland) and Leaderboard will be wasting no time in trying them out just as soon as we can get our hands on them.

Graham Green

Graham runs the Leaderboard Golf Centre - a very busy 37-bay Driving Range, Retail Store, Custom Fitting and Coaching improvement Centre. 

He also runs the retail side for Reading Golf Club, where Leaderboard have a second shop.

His role consists of a multitude of responsibilities, from standard office work to face-to-face selling, custom fitting and team management. In his own words – "It's a very varied role and always full on, yet extremely challenging and exciting. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty, so and I'll do most jobs if required - that includes, being a green-keeper, repair man and general Jack of all trades."

Graham started his golf career at Reading Golf Club working with Andrew Wild, who was the head professional there at the time. When Paul and Jennifer Gibbons set up Leaderboard and purchased the driving range in December 1999, Graham jumped at the chance to work for them.

It was Paul Gibbons' enthusiasm for golf, along with his business acumen, which encouraged Graham and meant that he didn't hesitate when he was given the opportunity to work for Leaderboard. Graham believes it's a privilege and a pleasure to be working with such great people on the Leaderboard team.

Graham qualified from the PGA with Distinction in 2003, gaining a Titleist Scholarship. A couple of years later, when Andrew Wild moved across to run Sandford Springs Golf Club, Graham was promoted to General Manager at the Leaderboard Golf Centre.

He describes the favourite parts of his job role with great enthusiasm – "My biggest buzz is seeing amateur golfers of all abilities improving and enjoying the game more. Golf has been very good to me and being able to give back to the sport gives me great drive and determination."
