Callaway Used A.I. To Design These Groundbreaking Golf Clubs

The golf giant utilized machine learning technology to analyze more than 250,000 swings.


An edge on the links and an improved game in the fairway can come down to the smallest swing adjustments, but what about cutting-edge technology to give golfers an even greater advantage? Callaway is betting on more than just swing tweaks with its new Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke line of clubs, which boast the world’s first series of club faces designed with Ai Smart Face technology.


The groundbreaking technology is a new frontier for Callaway: The golfing gear giant used machine learning technology to analyze more than 250,000 individual swings (yes, you read that correctly) with the goal of designing cutting-edge clubs packed with “sweet spots.”


Using that player data allowed Callaway to dream up more than 50,000 virtual face prototypes across a line of drivers, hybrids, irons and fairway woods.

More than 80,000 lines of custom code were written in the process, a level of customization and technical appeal nearly unheard of in the market.

The result? Drivers made with “optimized performance in mind,” with a series of micro-deflections across the face to create better spin and launch. Your father’s drivers and fairway woods, these are not.


As Callaway notes, the line of Paradym Ai Smoke drivers in particular “represent a quantum leap forward in Callaway’s Ai journey,” with a sweet spot that carries across the face, rather than just the center of the driver.


There are multiple variations of club face within each category of the Paradym Smoke lineup, including irons designed for higher ball flight and moderate ball speed, as well as irons designed for the highest possible ball flight, with more forgiveness built right into the face.

The same goes for its hybrids and fairway woods, and it doesn’t hurt that the sleek forged carbon look is stylish in any golf bag on the green.


The company even geared its drivers toward players with variable and consistent (and even semi-consistent) shot patterns, adjusting each club face according to extensive swing data and next-level technology.

It’s no guarantee that such technology will lower your score across 18 holes right away, but in a golf world where the smallest details make the difference, it very well might be worth investing in these tech-savvy clubs.

They’re available now for pre-order at Callaway, with a standard 7-piece set running $999.99 once the pre-sale starts on January 12th.
