    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. Rodney
    We should get together and play a round once the weather gets better, I live in Fredericksburg and was part of the Gear Trials crew, congratulations btw, GolfWRX always does it big you will enjoy it to the max...

    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.

    i still want someone to legitimately answer my question on mixed materials...



    callaway nearly pioneered it - made if successful - went away from it - moved back to it (after another OEM made it popular again). why move away from it? why move back into it?




    Great question, I will also like to hear their explanation on that one.



    I am going to guess cost and materials. Price on carbon fiber production and material tech has dropped a lot in just the last 8 years or so.
    I've still gotta RAZR Hawk TI that was a beast though I'll never be able to take advantage of that again but that was a saweeet driver!



    Fairways & Greens 4ever,

    RP


    It is quite the coincidence that you say that, Richard. The Razr Hawk Tour was the last Callaway club in my bag. It was one of the first drivers I acquired when I picked up this crazy game, and I loved that club (sound, flight, distance). However, the head failed and had to be replaced multiple times. Callaway Customer Service was great, but I finally gave up trying due to the inconvenience and uncertainty.

    Richmond is good middle ground between NoVA, Fredericksburg, and Va Beach. Just north of Richmond in Caroline is Pendleton golf course, which is nice. Just southeast of Richmond is Williamsburg. Some great courses there including Vineterra, Royal New Kent, Brickshire, and Stonehouse. We could always consider a stay and play at Kingsmill.

    Advice to those on the trip: Have a good time first. Fill us in when you have time. Don't let posting stuff get in the way of having the time of your lives.......which is what this is.

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






    Hey now not all of us Huskers havent seen the ocean haha. Ive seen the Pacific Ocean from Pelican Hills in Newport beach CA and just saw the Atlantic a month ago from Kiawah Island. Granted I didnt play Ocean course that was $360 but views from clubhouse were amazing.
