The most distinctive thing about the new Callaway Big Berthas is the sheer width of the soles in the three longest irons. These “I-brids” are designed to be as versatile and forgiving as hybrids while retaining more iron-like styling. From 6-iron up, forgiveness is the key aim thanks to increased offset, a large effective hitting area and a highly playable sole.

The Callaway Big Bertha long irons definitely have a different, not overly attractive, look at address thanks to their distinctive rear appendages. But the trick is to ignore this and focus on the iron-like bit at the front because they’re ridiculously easy to hit a long way, with no evidence of the ballooning flight I feared. A hugely forgiving, widely playable iron. Where next?
