Callaway X2 Hot Deep fairway woods
Phil Mickelson virtually sealed his British Open win last year with a brilliant pair of 3-wood shots to reach Muirfield's par-5 17th in 2 during the final round. The Champion Golfer of the Year smashed those shots using Callaway's X Hot 3Deep (13°) 3-wood. A new fairway wood called X2 Hot Deep consists of a 2Deep (12.5°), 3Deep (14.5°) and 5Deep (18.5°). The clubs feature a thinner, lighter Carpenter 455 forged cup face than in the X Hot Deep for faster ball speeds (in particular, on shots struck low on the face). A higher MOI contributes to more forgiveness and improved consistency, while a flatter roll radius helps shots to launch higher. Mickelson is one of the Tour players sporting the X2 Hot 2Deep, which is 20cc larger than X Hot 3Deep, has a bigger face and added forgiveness. $230 each
