    This should be a lot of fun, not just for the Callaway experience but also to meet the other guys going. Being in Montreal I don't get to meet a ton of real life WRX guys.



    As others have said thanks to golfwrx for the opportunity, and thanks to callaway for accommodating a Canadian (not always eligible for stuff) a lefty (not always eligible for stuff) and some other generous stuff too with travel



    Look forward to updating you guys

    Have to echo Pure745, it's great to see that WRX selected guys who are a consistently positive addition to the site, instead of just a random draw. Very jealous of you all, but I hope you have a blast, and I'll be following with serious interest!

    If anyone has any questions for us or Callaway, just let us know! I'll do my best to provide updates and content during this jam-packed trip.




    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.

    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.

    Thank you. Your post means a lot. When I got the invite and saw the guys I was going with a couple days later I was really floored. We've got a great group of guys and I've gotten to know them more over txt and PM. I'm even more excited to meet them in person.

    I too offer my sincere thanks to Callaway and GolfWRX for this wonderful opportunity. You could have knocked me over with a very small feather when I was asked if I wanted to go. This will be my first golf trip.



    I started playing at 50 and am now 61. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have an opportunity like this. I'm still a bit in a state of shock.

    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
