#TheWRX: The EPIC Event at Callaway Golf. 8 Members are treated to TheWRX


Recommended Posts

On the 2017 driver I increased my ball speed by 14 mph, added 25 yards of carry. That doesn't mean I will hit it like that every time, but still...

 

My previous driver was the XR 16.

 

I also have the 3 wood, Heaven wood, and 9 woods in the 2017 addition with the new Diamana 40 gram shaft. My irons are Apex CF16, 6-GW, with the Recoil 460 F4. I hit the 7-iron as long as my Steelhead OS 6- iron. For wedges I have the MD3 54, and the PM Mack Daddy in 58. Shaft is the same as the irons.

 

Nick Arthur was my fitter and did a superb job, even threw in a lesson. We also hit off grass with a trackman tracking our progress.

 

We attended a couple of mini-seminars, toured the R&D areas, and met with Callaway's senior executives for a lively discussion lasting about an hour over at Callaway HQ.

 

Busy day, long day, but very fulfilling.

 

That's an impressive increase with the driver, Sean! If I was seeing even an average 10 yard gain over my old driver, then I'd want to switch up.

Or to put it another way, only that sort of gain would persuade me to splash the $800+ on a new driver and shaft.

Thanks to Brizam for the cool video during my 3W fitting:

 

 

The 2017 low-spin model sounds and feels really good!

Which wedge grinds have you guys been choosing?

 

I went with mack daddy forged which I think is only C grind. In the black finish.

 

Supposed to be pretty good for sweepers, which is nice since I don't take divots

Something about Callaway just brought out my inner Patrick Reed. I'm going to Reed-coil all over the Torrey Pines South tomorrow en route to a 91.

I went with the new 2017 wedges with c grind. I preferred these wedges due to the straighter leading edge.

You could have knocked me over with a feather. That doesn't mean I will do it on every shot, but it was very encouraging.

Getting time with Roger Cleveland would be EPIC. I think that is the part I would have enjoyed most. If I could dial in my game from 125 and in, I know I could really do some damage on weekend games.

 

Thanks for all the pics and posts, you lucky guys are making me incredibly jealous.

Quick post and wanted to share a highlight of my golfing life. During some wedge discussion in the range I got a 15 minute mini lesson from Roger Cleveland. The man couldn't move been more helpful and nice to work with.
