    Why did you put a 4 leaf clover on it but called it The Shamrock??? They are two different things..

    1. A.J. Voelpel says:

      Yep, we realize the difference @sbkguy:disqus but MD3 four-leaf clover doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

      1. jbigarow says:

        No. I think not. If so, you would have changed the four-leaf clover to a shamrock. Not change the name to MD3 four-leaf clover. You are about to be laughed at by the Irish. Posers.

        1. Brian says:

          Now Rory will never use this wedge

      2. PAJARTHUR says:

        Being obsessive, of course I had to do some research. This is kind of a summation.

        While all shamrocks are clover, not all clovers are shamrocks. If you’re
        confused by the difference, you are not alone: even botanists have
        struggled to agree on what defines a shamrock. Although they may have
        different ideas, both botany and Irish legend have their own opinions of
        what makes a clover a shamrock.
        Even among botanists, there is some disagreement on what species is
        the “true” shamrock, but most agree that the White Clover is probably
        the original shamrock of Irish symbolic heritage. While trying to
        convert the Irish into Christians, St. Patrick used the shamrock to
        explain the holy trinity with each leaf representing the Father, Son and
        Holy Spirit. The three leaves of a shamrock are also said to stand for faith, hope
        and love. A fourth leaf is where we get the luck from. The four-leafed clover, or “lucky clover”, is an uncommon variation of the three-leafed clover, and widely considered to be a symbol of good luck. Because they are a mutation, they are rare, and not found in the same abundance as the shamrock,

        To further confuse things, if you look up Shamrock Images in Google, you get both 3 and 4 leaf images.

        The traditional Irish symbol of a shamrock does not include the fourth leaf.

          I expect a full book report from you @pajarthur:disqus by Monday morning. No excuses!

  2. Jim Shields says:

    Will they come in Left hand models?

    1. A.J. Voelpel says:

      Unfortunately only right-handed models will be available.

    2. Brian says:

      just learn to chip righty

  3. PAJARTHUR says:

    Love the look. Black/Green is awesome. In the market to replace my worn 60 degree. Will definitely take a look.

    1. A.J. Voelpel says:

      Glad you like ’em @paj@pajarthur:disqus!

  4. Mtrewet says:

    Looks like there are 6 lofts available, not the 5 they mention in #4 above.

    1. A.J. Voelpel says:

      Correct, it comes in 6 lofts.

  5. Bo Faro says:

    Can you use this club (60 degree) as a sand wedge?

    1. A.J. Voelpel says:

      100% Bo!

  6. Dingalo says:

    How/where do you pre-order

    1. A.J. Voelpel says:

      March 11th. Right here!

  7. Eric Carstensen says:

    So is online the only route in acquiring one of these beautiful clubs?

    1. A.J. Voelpel says:

      Nope, they’ll be available at retail stores nationwide Eric!

  8. Bo Faro says:

    AJ, If I wanted to use one of the 6 wedges as sand wedge as well as another wedge (2 in 1), which degree wedge would you choose? I definitely need help with a sand wedge but would like to use it for double duty. Thanks.

    1. Brian says:

      56 degree, 14 degree bounce is a winner for everything around the greens

    2. A.J. Voelpel says:

      These are all S Grind @bofaro:disqus. I’d recommend you go either W Grind (58° or 60°) or PM Grind (58° or 60°). That’s what Roger Cleveland would tell you too!

  9. Bo Faro says:

    56 degree, 14 degree bounce is a winner for everything around the greens — One more question then, If sand and short game are by far my biggest problems, I see your answer in the beginning which I highlighted but which W , S or I believe C would be the best especially where I want to use it in sand. Thanks

    1. A.J. Voelpel says:

      No question that W is the grind for you if you’re looking strictly to use it out of the bunker. That’s the winner Bo!

  10. PAJARTHUR says:

    The only added comment I have (until after I probably buy one), is that I would have balanced the graphics and had the S Grind in white and made the Clover green.

  11. Gymflake says:

    Thank you Rodger! Got Two on order, 60 and 56! Have to trade in the old, MD3’s first!

  12. Michael Santopietro says:

    Here it is March 11th … and I am looking for the pre-order button somewhere on the Callaway site. Is it going to be available at a certain time?

    1. Robert says:

      I’m looking too..I don’t see where to order it
