    Here is a list of excuses i will use when you see my unimpressive LM numbers with driver



    1) Arm fell asleep on flight

    2) Wind was in the face all day

    3) Going from the east coast to west coast you lose yards due to time zone

    4) My carry distances were in meters due to being Canadian

    5) Stop being a "hater" bro (not necessarily applicable, but will just write that)

    Three pages and they aren't even there yet. I remember reading all the posts when the first group went back to Callaway(The dscvrr group). What a blast that was. Some of the best I've read on this site.

    Can someone ask them what the "R" and dots* on the hosels of their superb Callayway forged prototype irons meant? I've heard lots of different reasons, from headweights, to clubhead lies, to conforming/non-conforming grooves. I'd like to hear the definitive answer from the horse's mouth.

    This post almost made me misty eyed, lmao



    Started playing at 50, now 61 and your first golf trip. Genuine surprise and happiness.



    Bro, the only thing that would make me happier than you goin on this friggin trip is if Maddie called me right now, told me that she was pregnant, we were having a Boi and she wants to name him RP Jacobs III, lol



    Talk about never in my wildest dreams, LMAO



    Seriously though, I'm happy that you're gonna get to hit the ball in December in warm sunny weather!!

    Not sure what the dots mean but I heard the R stands for Roger Cleveland who designed the wedges. Not sure if that's definitive or not though.

    Disregard that. I misread. You said irons. Not wedges

    As much as I'm intrigued about the new drivers... Thus trip has got to be equally about the experience and the wonderful folks at Callaway.
