Callaway Big Bertha
Golf Monthly Verdict

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?

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.
