It's time...





They've kept the trip (mostly) quiet until now, but the time is here to post. All are excited for the experience.



We kick off officially 5PM Sunday night, Pacific Time with some night time at Ely Callaway Performance Center!



This is the first night event ever at ECPC, so it's going to be a blast.



More updates on Monday and Tuesday as we have a packed itinerary there as well.



They guys are chomping at the bit, so we're opening it up to posting and look forward to the community following along.



Enjoy!

    Awesome! Thanks for the list, nice to know who is going.



    Congratulations to all of you, hope it is an amazing trip (not sure how it won't be).



    I guess I meant "Epic" trip. Can't wait to hear about everything.

    Thank you so much to both Callaway and GolfWRX for the opportunity to be on this trip. After chatting with the other trip members over the past few weeks I think we are going to have a really good time.



    I cant put into words how excited I am about this trip. My wife told me it has pretty much ruined anything she could possible come up with for Christmas.....



    For all of you that want to see head to head with the new clubs we will be able to provide that. We have all shipped our gamer drivers and our 6 irons out to Callaway so we can compare our current clubs to their products, which I think is awesome!!!

    I'm very excited for the trip. I'll do my best to post lots of pictures as we go. As long as Callaway gives me the ok.



    I'm thrilled that Callaway has us bringing our driver and 6 iron so we can see our real gains as opposed to speculating.



    Feel free to PM me or post in the thread if you have anything specific you'd want to see or ask. (Within reason)

    Hello everyone! I just wanted to stop in and say thanks to GolfWRX and to Callaway for this once in a lifetime trip. I'm super excited.



    The eight of us have been communicating through PM for the last few weeks and everyone is pumped about the trip. We've exchanged phone numbers and email addresses in an effort to stay connected and provide everyone with updates without repetitious posting.



    I will do my best to provided objective, unbiased reporting on the process and the outcome.

    I echo the sentiments of my travel partners. This is going to be nuts! To say I am excited is an understatement.



    It will be very interesting to get the numbers and fitting. I have been fit for irons in Golf Galaxy, but I want to see if there is any difference. Also, I have never had a driver fitting. All of my shaft changes have been trial and error.



    I am very grateful to GolfWRX and Callaway for this opportunity.

    Great point, mackepa; I forgot to mention that! I believe this is one of the first trips like this where Callaway has asked attendees to bring their own clubs. I think the head-to-head comparisons will be very helpful.



    I shipped my PING G30 driver and Taylormade Tour Preferred MC 6i to Carlsbad on Tuesday. I was fit for the driver head and shaft at PING HQ last March.

    Seconded. Y'all will be going 100 miles an hour pretty much the whole day until you get back to your rooms at night. Do your best to post back here to the thread, but don't forget to enjoy the fact that, you know, you're actually there! The Callaway guys are an absolute blast so enjoy yourselves.

    I bit and texted QMany about it. Wouldn't have surprised me given his love for the cornfields of Nebraska.

    I'll be curious how the feedback, reporting, testing will go compared to the 'other' sites Granddaddy trip. They are pretty pro Cally over there so you have to take everything with a grain of salt.

    Probably because a ton of those older heads exploded and shed a bad light on the company.... Now that materials and technology have approved they are more confident in the QC. At least that is what I expect them to say and it's probably partially true, real answer, to keep up with TM.

    I wouldn't be surprised if advancements in the material brought them back to it from how it was originally used. I don't know much about carbon fiber, but I understand that materials are constantly being improved from previous versions.

    When we went on CallaWrx 1 the new CEO Chip Brewer was just taking over. We had a meeting where they said the previous CEO didn't even play golf and cut costs everywhere and clubs suffered. It's why they went away from the white hot insert as well then when back to it after Chip took over. So the answer we got for why a lot of things changed was $$$$$. I also believe improvements in how heads are constructed got better and more reliable.
