• Generates better distance than other forged irons because of a lower, deeper CG that has a penetrating trajectory
The story of Callaway Golf begins with the company’s founder and namesake Ely Callaway, a passionate businessman and well known figure in the game of Golf. The company got its start when Mr. Callaway bought a small wedge and putter company called “Hickory Stick USA”, which later became “Callaway Hickory Stick USA” and eventually “Callaway Golf”. From the beginning the company was committed to producing quality product for golfers of all skill levels. Mr. Callaway called it “Demonstrably Superior and Pleasingly Different” (DPSD) golf clubs. Though the company has grown exponentially since it’s modest start in 1982 (when Mr.Callaway would deliver product himself from the back of his Cadillac) the commitment to innovation and quality remains. Now a publicly traded company, Callaway is one of the most visible names in golf with a product line that encompasses the full spectrum of equipment and accessories including drivers, irons, wedges, putters and balls. Callaway golf also owns Top-Flite Golf Company, Odyssey Putters, Ben Hogan and Strata Brands.

Game Improvement Irons
The undercut cavity is designed to improve clubhead stability on off-center hits. The purpose of the Carpenter 455 forged-steel face is to optimize distance yet retain a soft feel.
"A 'tweener. Are you sure this isn't supposed to be in the players-iron section? The ball flight is perfect. The long irons help get it high in the air, but the short irons stay low and controlled."
"As long and forgiving as the rest of these clubs, but you can really put the ball where you want to."…"The topline isn't too big. It has a crisp sound and solid feel. It felt heavy when I picked it up, but it was way more balanced when I hit it."
Trying to improve the unquantifiable characteristic of feel could have been futile. Instead, this might be the sweetest-feeling iron on our list. Plus, the ball just fires off the Carpenter-steel face.
That's not the only fire here. The price tag will burn a sizable hole in your wallet.
