New Callaway Apex Utility Iron Spotted at Hoylake

Posted at 10:36 AM by Michael Chwasky
Proto UT 1

The Open Championship is known for many things, including traditional links layouts, variable weather conditions and long-irons off the tee. When Tiger won at Hoylake in 2006, he dismantled the hard and fast track with long-iron stingers, and while this year's conditions appear to allow for a few more drivers, a ton of players -- including Tiger -- are still banging a variety of long and driving irons off the tee with regularity.

In light of this fact, Callaway has introduced a new Apex Utility iron at this week's Open Championship, and so far seven players are carrying it in their bag, including Gary Woodland, Branden Grace, Ryo Ishikawa, and Thomas Bjorn (Phil Mickelson experimented with it in practice rounds but hasn't gamed it yet).

Though the folks at Callaway aren't disclosing any details at the moment (the official release should be coming soon), it's pretty easy to see the resemblance to the company's existing X Utility Prototype, which features a relieved sole for improved performance from tough lies, a deep CG location for added forgiveness and a thin, forged face for increased ballspeed and enhanced feel. Safe to say the new Apex Utility contains many of the same features along with some improvements. Keep your eye on Callaway staffers this week and you should get a glimpse of one.
