    #TheWRX: Christmas Comes Early at Callaway Golf



    DAY ONE:



    I departed the Kansas City airport at 8:00 PM on Sunday, December 11th. I don’t think I have ever been as excited as I was that morning. During a quick layover in Phoenix, I had a chance to meet gregh729 (Greg). He is a great dude, and we hit it off immediately. After touching down in sunny San Diego, we had a black car service there to take us both away!

    30 minutes up the beautiful California coastline, we arrived at Cape Rey in Carlsbad. It is a beautiful Hilton property right on the ocean.

    At the bar (of course), we met up with MtlJeff (Jeff), Waterboy (Scott), HipCheck (Rob), zakkozuchowski (Zak), and Johnny Rodriguez from Callaway. I could already tell this was a great group of guys and we were going to get along very well! Johnny had already checked us in, gave us our cards, told us to go unload our bags, and then come back for a beer.



    Upon entering the room, we were greeted by this:

    Swag for days!



    After getting back to the bar and getting our beaks wet, we greeted Sean2 (Sean), Brizam (Bram), HotRod71 (Rodney), mackepa (Paul) as they arrived. We had our great crew finally together!

    After a few beers and cleaning up, we were shuttled to the Ely Callaway Performance Center for an unbelievable night event. They transformed the range usually used for Tour fittings and made it into an amazing event space. Buffets with sliders, Chinese, quesadillas, mac & cheese, bratwurst, anything you can ever want! And then a full bar with beer, wine, and liquor. It was a great space to meet and mingle with the massive Callaway staff that took time on their Sunday evening to be with us. They are felt genuinely excited and happy for us to be there (a recurring theme).



    After giving us a tour of the facility (no pictures allowed, sorry), they set up different events for us to rotate through. First, they had the practice putting green setup as a 7-hole putting course with the new 2017 putter line to try. Then, they had the indoor fitting studio ready with the new 2017 driver for a long-drive competition. Finally, a putter fitting!

    And of course, a common theme, they had prizes for each and every event! I won the long drive competition (signed PM driver headcover), Paul won the putting contest (signed PM putter headcover), and Bram won straightest drive (signed PM hat).

    The putter fittings were done by Nate Adelman (Retail Marketing Manager and host of Callaway’s Fitting Room podcast) and Nick Arthur (Senior Club Performance Specialist). I had talked to Nate prior and we got along right away. He is a golf nerd like me, and I really enjoyed getting to know him and talking golf. I was excited to see that I was going to be working with him on my putter fitting.



    Putter Fitting:



    The ECPC has an Odyssey studio that has every putter you could imagine. In the corner, bags of gold plated putters from Staff victories. Replicas of Phil’s from the Open Championship, Furyk’s 58, etc.



    For the past year, I have used an Odyssey Versa 1W 35” with SuperStroke Flatso 1.0. They had a replica of that exact putter there so it was easy to get a baseline. I talked with Nate about the state of my putting, my miss, etc. He watched diligently as I rolled 10 footers on the practice green. My miss is a little push, and it was a little evident. Nate would get down on the ground from in front and behind to check my path, the roll, etc. He is very good at what he does and I just put full trust in him. He cycled me through different heads, shafts, and combinations. For me, I like stability for shorter putts. I prefer the double-bend shaft for a face-balanced feel. However, Nate found that I wasn’t getting enough face rotation in my throughstroke. He wanted just a little more toe hang without compromising stability on the shorter putts, so he found an R-Line head in the New 2017 Putter line. It is very reminiscent of the V-Line but a little smaller. He tested for lie and length, and we were off running! Johnny and AJ were both there watching and they would have called me an idiot and beat me up if I chose anything else; I was aiming it perfectly, starting it on my line, and a new insert technology got it rolling quickly!



    They have a SAM unit there and anything else you might want to use, but we didn’t dive into it. I think the SAM is used more to analyze the stroke itself and improve, not as a fitting tool as much (my words, not theirs). This was done more by what compliments your stroke the best, what looks best for to your eye, what helps you align the best, and in the end what putts a straighter and better roll on the ball. The entire process took about 30 minutes.

    We were shuttled back to the hotel and I realized: we had only finished one half-day and there were two more to go! It was already an amazing experience.



    DAY TWO:

    I was in the first group to be fit. Paul and Rob were on both sides of me grinding away. They both have pretty good moves!

    Rob_1.jpg



    I was fortunate to work with John Degen (ECPC Tour Fitting Manager) and we hit it off right away. John is very talented and works with a lot of Tour staff (Patrick Reed the next day Belen Mozo later this week). Luckily, I was hitting the ball well, so we didn’t waste much time. We started with wedges and worked our way up the bag. ​



    JDegen_3.jpg



    Wedges:



    I like to play 3 wedges (or 4, including PW). Usually that means 50-54-60, so that is what we worked off of. First, we went through their 4 grind offerings to determine what fits me best in the 60. For the last two years, I have been playing a Taylormade Tour Preferred:



    hero.jpgWe cycled through the different grinds (S, C, W) and determined that I worked best with the C Grind. The 2017 wedge model has a more aggressive C Grind with straighter leading edge. We took both to the practice green with a greenside bunker to test out of the sand. The C Grind from the previous MD3 line fit me best. For my swing, it provided the best amount of bounce and didn’t dig like I found the new C Grind to do. I happen to like the more rounded leading edge, as well, so the MD3 C Grind was perfect for me.

    Irons:



    I have been playing the Taylormade Tour Preferred irons for 3 full seasons now (MB PW-8i, MC 7i-4i). I love the shape and size. I have played KBS Tour X since I picked up the game almost six years ago. I feel comfortable with them.



    John focused on the Apex Pro. I love the shape; I wouldn’t want anything smaller or bigger. Just perfect to my eye and similar to the Tour Preferred profile. From there, we wanted to determine what shaft provided suitable spin and limited my misses.



    After getting a baseline with my 6i, I tested the Apex Pro with: KBS Tour X, new KBS prototype, PX 6.5, two Modus shafts I didn’t jot down, and finally X100. My launch and spin with the KBS Tour were in the right window, but the dispersion wasn’t great. The new KBS prototype was too low/low, and I just didn’t jive with PX or Modus. The trusty X100 turned out to be perfect. It seemed to hit the same window, with similar launch as my KBS Tour X, a little less spin, and the dispersion was halved. It seemed like the last half of the flight just maintained its line instead of that last little bit of curve.



    John wanted to get the lie perfect. We went into the Tour Build shop to test my gamer and the new shaft for SW, length, and lie. My gamer was about 1.5* up (63.5) compared to stock (62.0). Just to double-check, he put me on their hand-to-floor ruler to confirm I needed +1/2”.



    JDegen_1.jpg



    On the course, I found them fractionally longer with a tighter dispersion. 5 yard draws instead of sweeping draws and better flight in the wind.

    Hybrid:



    I would trade off between a Titleist 915 (Diamana White 90X) and a TEE CB ProH 3i (KBS Tour X) depending on course, conditions, etc. We started with the UT and I just wasn’t hitting it well. It felt hollow and clanky with my swing. I didn’t expect to get fit into a Hybird, but that was the case. We tested different shafts until determining the same Diamana White 90X was the best fit for me. Then it came down to the head. Again to take out the left miss, he suggested the XR Pro from the previous year, not the newer Apex Pro. He found it had more fade bias than the newer Apex Pro and would be best for my dispersion. The 20* fills the 235-240 gap between 3W and 4i.

    This is the only club that didn't feel right on Sunday. I don't know why, but the build felt heavy, stiff, and I kept missing it right. Beat-on pushes. I need to get it figured out if it wants to stay in the bag.



    3 Wood:



    I went in with an open mind regarding the 3W. I have played the SLDR Mini (Matrix White Tie 7X3) for the last two years and love it. The deeper face allows me to tee it a little higher and is confidence-inspiring.



    At my swing speeds and skill level, John told me he was going to fit me like he does Tour staff. It wasn’t necessarily about chasing numbers but instead minimizing misses. The first thing he wanted to do was get me in an 80-gram 3W shaft. The weight & stability would tighten my dispersion.







    My numbers were almost identical with the 2017 3W and 2017 low-spin 3W, so it came down to personal preference. I found I liked the shape of the low-spin model better. To my eye, it seemed shorter heel to toe and that make it look a little deeper, which I prefer. I don’t care for really shallow 3W profiles.



    Again, we went through a multitude of shafts (White Tie, AD DI, Blueboard, Kuro Kage, etc.). The trusty Blueboard prevailed. I wasn't surprised, as I've always liked a Mid-Mid profile. While the spin numbers were all within range with all the shafts I tried, it felt the best and in turn provided the best dispersion. Then John remembered he had the new Diamana Tensei CK Pro Blue and popped it in. Pretty much identical numbers and feel to the Blueboard. So I say, “well if they are the same to you, can I get the cooler and newer shaft?”

    Driver:



    After all of that, we hadn’t got to the best part: the New 2017 Driver! That is the reason we were there, right?



    I have had my PING G30 for two years now, and I was fit for the Alta X shaft from the new G line while I was at the PING HQ last spring. I feel really comfortable with it and love its forgiveness. It is plenty long for me, I just like hitting fairways. I am a very low spin player, and once he saw some balls in the 1800-2000 range with my G30 and new 2017 driver, we didn’t even try the new low-spin version.



    The New 2017 Driver may not be the best looking club to some, but crown didn’t bother me at all. It provides a muted but solid sound that is addicting.



    As explained earlier, John’s #1 priority with me was dispersion. If I picked up a few yards, cool. He would rather tighten my dispersion by 50%. Like the 3W, it started by going to a heavier shaft. We tested everything in the 70X range (AD DI, Kuro Kage, Tensei White, etc.) After a few with those, we went back to his first hunch, the same Diamana Tensei CK Pro Blue in my 3W but in 70X. It was money!



    At one point, I hit a perfect ball with my PING and then immediately grabbed the New 2017 Driver with the Tensei CK Pro Blue and hit another perfect ball on the same flight. Probably my two best swings of the day, back to back. The PING playing at 45.75” had a 169 ball speed while the new 2017 driver at stock 45” was 171. Carry was about 4-5 yards longer.



    A note on club head speed and smash factor: John doesn’t even have smash factor displayed normally when he’s working with Trackman. As he explained, how Trackman measures club head speed, as a blob moving in space, it isn’t exact. Readings can be different between heads. Ball speed is measured exactly. At his level of fittings, he usually only concerns himself with ball speeds. To the best of my recollection, I was seeing ball speeds 1-2 MPH faster with new 2017 driver despite a heavier and shorter shaft.



    EDIT: My Trackman Report shows ball speeds were +0.5-3.3 MPH with the New 2017 Driver in every configuration despite a heavier and shorter shaft.

    After our group was finished fitting, we flip-flopped with the other group and participated in a Tech Fair to learn the ins-and-outs of the technologies on the new driver line, new putter line, and old iron lines. I will share more information once allowed, but they are doing some really cool and innovative stuff.



    The last part of that session was a little lesson with the one and only Roger Cleveland. He had us hitting some balls and walked the line giving tips. It was amazing. He taught me how to hit a high soft pitch (almost flop) off of any lie and explained the differences between the new wedge line and previous MD3 line, as well as differences in bounce configurations.

    6a08402e25b31bd48f3e88edef8e9b65.jpg



    I had a picture of my Taylormade Tour Preferred and a Cleveland RTX3 MG I recently bought. I had to ask him about the differences in the two clubs and the results I was observing. He threw on his glasses, zoomed in on my phone, and was explaining the differences in amount of bounce and location of bounce and how that affects playability. It was just surreal to hear from the man himself.



    d325bf3a3b3518846d6064afd3d30040.jpg



    After the other group finished their fittings, we had a presentation with KBS and Mitsubishi Rayon to discuss their new lines before being shuttled to the Callaway HQ for lunch, a factory tour including witnessing our clubs being built in the Tour Department, and a roundtable with Callaway executives such as Chip Brewer, Harry Arnett, Sean Toulon, Alan Hocknell, Jason Findley, and more. I hope to share more information as soon as possible.



    That proved to be an exhausting day. After a great dinner at Chandlers at our hotel, we had a few beers and broke for bed early. We had one more amazing day ahead of us!



    DAY THREE:



    Torrey Pines!



    What else can I say? You can imagine the excitement as we boarded the shuttle and headed to that infamous property. We also knew we would be meeting our recently built beauties, and the excitement was palpable.



    As we pulled up, there they were, lined up in all their glory next to the putting green. I was so excited I lost my shoes and gloves! We were all on cloud nine.



    48e4d0248ab4a73e7747316daffe44f3.jpg



    ed5106fb7eec92f53cedfe6d593c3f1f.jpg



    So let me lay the stage…



    Torrey Pines. The South Course. Home of Tiger’s last major and that famous putt. Home of the 2021 US Open. And now home of #TheWRX showdown where we play for a one-year supply of Callaway golf balls! It was lit!

    8bdb6e41acd416180ee23c16425f1369.jpg



    I have played in some big state amateur events, and I have never been as nervous as I was on that first tee with everyone watching! And I was in the third group; I don’t know how Greg even hit the ball.

    ProTracer video on #1 from Bram: http://www.golfwrx.c...0#entry14656990



    I was hitting the ball pretty well and my caddie, Grant, was awesome. On the infamous #3:

    Unfortunately, that ball sailed over the green into the hazard. It is not Grant’s fault, I just hit it too pure. image/taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' />



    My group was amazing! I played with Johnny Rodriguez, Tyler Shean, and Robert Julian (Senior VP and CFO). Because of the odd number of GolfWRX guys, I was the only one who played with all Callaway guys. The rest of the groups were 2 & 2. Johnny, Tyler, and Robert were amazing to play with. I felt like we were best friends by the first green.



    Johnny_at_Torrey_1.jpg



    Tyler_at_Torrey_1.jpg



    Robert_at_Torrey_1.jpg



    The match was Net 2 Best Balls. Our team was victorious at -13. But most of all, we had a blast! These are some great dudes, and I was lucky to play alongside them.



    At one point, after missing 4-5 makeable birdie putts, I told Johnny we needed to get one to drop because I needed that one-year supply of golf balls. Robert pulled out his business card and yelled I was getting a lifetime supply of balls! I don't know if that is an enforceable contract or not...

    Shots_2.jpg



    I had two bogeys (3 & 12) and four birdies (9, 15, 16, 17). 16 was your everyday 2 Net 3!



    I hit a bomb up the right side of 18 that hit cart path and only left me 8i in. The pin was back left; I left it front right in the bowl about 40 feet below the hole. My personal best is 68 at my home club, so I was a little jacked up especially, with Amanda Balionis and a photographer perched next to the green watching. I slammed the first putt 8 feet by and then completely misread the comebacker. An anticlimactic 3-putt par on 18 for a tidy 70. But good enough for a post-round interview!







    As I mentioned earlier, my caddie Grant was amazing. He made the incredible experience even better. It was awesome to hear he lurks on GolfWRX. I hope we keep in touch.

    At the end of the round, they had a private space set up right next to the 18 green with drinks and appetizers. It was an incredible finish to an incredible day.

    As mentioned over and over, the Callaway guys seem to love what they do, love the game, and love talking to people about the game. I never got the sense that they were working and burdened having us out there. They felt like friends and seemed genuinely happy to be there with us.



    Group_at_Torrey.jpg



    To finish, I just want to thank Callaway and GolfWRX. This was an experience I’ll never forget, I’ll I’m eternally grateful. I hope we all stay in touch as we continue playing this crazy game.

    Sorry guys, just a tad frustrated by this thread. To much silly talk and not enough photos, specs, stats, gains, losses, photos and photos and did I mention photos of all the new stuff.

    To finish, I just want to thank Callaway and GolfWRX. This was an experience I’ll never forget, I’ll I’m eternally grateful. I hope we all stay in touch as we continue playing this crazy game.
    Great overview of your time with Callaway. Really enjoyed reading about the club fitting experience!
  • swanry30swanry30 Lights Out ClubWRX Charter Members Posts: 4,529
    I'm taking a couple of big things out of Q's write up...



    First, Callaway was licking their chops knowing they were fitting a good player with speed using a Ping G30 with a stock shaft. Regardless if it was fit at Ping - the fitting process wouldn't touch the extensive/details they would put him through.



    Second, Callaway fit him right. They didn't chase yards - they fit to the miss. One of the easiest way to tighten up dispersion pattern is going shorter, heavier and stiffer (for a strong player). Callaway attacked all three. Pairing this with a head that provided the appropriate spin (in his case a head that would spin). The Tensei is a top notch shaft/line - the CK PRO BLUE might as well have been made for Q.



    Third, JAILBREAK is legitimate. When you go shorter, heavier and stiffer you lose swing speed, and for your quality player ball speed (because they are already hitting it on the screws - higher handicappers can benefit and see ball speeds increase on average if shortening aids in center face contact). Callaway's new technology appears to have made up the loss and increased his ball speed. If they gave him the same driver .75" longer like his Ping with the 60g CK PRO BLUE - imagine the gains...wow!



    Finally, gear/equipment aside - the level of fitting provided should not be overlooked. When you have a great fitter with incredible equipment and product knowledge (great example is the hybrid fitting - an older model would eliminate left more than the current model - I loved this...).



    I will for certain be giving the CALLAWAY 2017 "LOW SPIN" DRIVER a go...I play my drivers at 44.5" - .75", D4-6 with 75-80g TX tipped 1". I'm looking for control not distance (already have speed) - yet don't hit "forgiving" heads well. If I can gain ball speed at my playing length, I will be just fine with green on the crown.



    Appreciate the detailed write up Q!

    I'm intrigued to hear more about this R-Line. I like the shape and look of the V-Line, and I think I've seen some tour issued Mini V-Lines, so is this R-Line coming to retail? And it's probably a safe bet this is with an O-Works insert as well...sounds like a solid flat stick!



    Great job on the write up, everyone so far. Q, 70 is a **** of a round at a course you've never played with clubs you've never touched. Hopefully '17 has some good things in store for you! I'm honestly kinda pissed at you though knowing you only picked up golf 6 years ago. You were that kid growing up who was just naturally good at everything, weren't you? WEREN'T YOU?

    great read. So you have only been playing 6 years? That's very impressive to get to the level of player you appear to be. Did you play when you were young and pick it back 6 years ago or start from scratch? Did you come from a different sport that made it easier to get good quicker.

    Alright boys, i'm going to keep redundant pictures to a minimum and only try to post new material.



    This trip was without a doubt the best golf experience of my life. Our trip kicked off with my man Johnny Rodriguez greeting us upon arrival and giving us our room keys and strict orders to clean up and meet at the bar for beers. I went straight to the room and was greeted by a bed full of swag/goodies depending on which side of 30 you are on. After arrival beers and introductions we decided to take quick naps before our first night at ECPC.



    Up to this point we've been treated pretty darn well and were really kind of expecting similar treatment throughout the week but dinner at the ECPC was beyond anything we could have ever expected.

    Full Bag Fitting:



    Irons:



    After breakfast we loaded the bus and headed back to the ECPC for our full back fitting. I made a bee line straight to Nick since we had worked together the night before. Nick and I started right off the bat with the irons. I already play the Callaway Apex Pro 16 irons with Project X 6.5 which were a pretty good fit already. We got a good base line with them and really noticed that they could be pretty tough to beat. Nick wanted me to try Modus 120's, Tour V's and C-Taper's. The Modus and C-Taper's were just ok. C-Tapers had a decently large dispersion range but the Modus were fairly tight. Even though the Modus dispersion were pretty good the launch and spin varied more than normal between solid strikes so we kicked it out of the equation. The Tour V's on the other hand were very, very consistent. The launch and spin were money and dispersion were right there as well. my ugly swings weren't wild misses like i've seen before. They were just good.



    FInal Specs: We went with 5-PW at +3/4", 1* flat and 1* strong to keep spin down.



    We also added a tweener club in there that ended up being a bit of a frankenstein. I told Nick I didn't feel like I hit my 4 iron that much farther than my 5 so we hit some balls with a 21* Utility and it was just a hair too long for my gap so it got bent 1* weak and slid right into that gap I needed. The Utility was build to the same specs as the irons except the paying length was left standard to match the progression.



    The 2017 Driver:

    Torrey Pines:



    Oh, the last day of the trip. Bitter sweet. We got off the bus and saw all our clubs in a row right by the putting green. I played with Sean2, Dave Bartels and Nate Adelman. Torrey Pines is no joke. The rough was so thick that reaching a green from it was impossible. actually, the only green I reached from the rough was the hardest hole on the course. I hit a hybrid from the right rough on 4 from about 220 to about 15 feet and I only did it because I hit it in the one area where the rough was laid flat. I shot a 78 and felt good about my round until I found out Matt shot a 70. Nate and Dave were great to play with. Dave is rocket scientist smart and Nate has the coolest odyssey RSX i've ever seen. Dave handles all the golfball engineering and asked me after every wedge shot if the new ball preformed like I expected it to.

    Awesome Mackepa! So just out of curiosity, do you have a final verdict on the driver? Seems maybe you weren't completely blown away by it?

    @Qmany, I know you've been getting a lot of questions, I just had one. What was it like seeing the ocean for the first time?

    But if any of you have questions, please let us know. There was a lot of information to digest, and I'm sure it will be hard to remember and include everything in our recaps.




    Have a great honeymoon Q!



    You bringing your clubs? lol


    Sean, I know I read that you were fit into irons that are +2" in length? As a tall guy with over length as well, I'm curious, what length driver were you fit into. I'm back and forth whether longer or shorten benefits me and think I strike better at 45.5" or longer. What did they do for you? Thanks

    Did I miss it ? What wedges did you end up with and driver shaft?




    Driver shaft is the Diamana S+ 60, stiff at 45.5"

    Wedges are the MD3 56W and 60W. I liked the wide sole and more bounce
