Callaway’s Jaws Raw is the newest extension to the acclaimed line of wedges that offers some of the most aggressive grooves in golf for extreme short game spin and control – and more ‘hop and stop’ performance.

When making the JAWS Raw ($180; 4 burrs, 48-60 degree lofts, two finishes; callawaygolf.com), Callaway removed the veneer from the face and toe areas, which maintained the radius of sharpest groove allowed by USGA rules. Shaping and grinds have also been improved for more versatility and forgiveness.

According to Roger Cleveland, Callaway’s master cleat craftsman, “What really excites us is the updated shaping with a straighter leading edge for alignment, and our new Z-Grind, which has a chamber on the leading edge that acts as a secondary skid plate to prevent digging, especially on tight lies.
