After the success of Callaway Golf’s Epic Flash driver last season, the first golf club designed using artificial intelligence and machine learning on a supercomputer, a new larger capacity computer allowed not only design of the 2020 Mavrik metal woods but capacity to be used for designing irons.

 

The supercomputer had the capability to run thousands of simulations to find the configuration that meets specific performance goals for distance, spin and playability. The new design for the faces is called the Flash Face Cup with different face thickness patterns for each iron loft. Callaway says the Mavrik irons are a breakthrough comparable to what they accomplished with the Epic Flash driver.

 

Long iron faces are biased to provide higher launch and ball speed, in mid-irons for speed and spin consistency while short irons optimize spin and trajectory control. Internal weighting to maximize face rebound and impact dampening uses tungsten weights surrounded by urethane microspheres and tagged as a Tungsten Energy Core.

 

Three models will be available Jan. 23, the Mavrik, Mavrik Pro and Mavrik Max offering the choice of True Temper, Project X, and KBS shafts plus grips are from Golf Pride. Pricing is the same for the Mavrik and Mavrik Max with a 7-piece set $799 with steel shafts and $899 for graphite. Mavrik Pro is $899 for a 7-piece set and only with steel shafts.
