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


Recommended Posts

I just want to start by saying thank you to GolfWRX and Callaway for this incredible opportunity. I think I speak for all of us when I say we are beyond excited for this experience.

 

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?

 

When we went on CallaWrx 1 the new CEO Chip Brewer was just taking over. We had a meeting where they said the previous CEO didn't even play golf and cut costs everywhere and clubs suffered. It's why they went away from the white hot insert as well then when back to it after Chip took over. So the answer we got for why a lot of things changed was $$$$$. I also believe improvements in how heads are constructed got better and more reliable.

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

Well out of the 8 of us I can't yet identify the inevitable weird guy that everyone will secretly not like

 

Oh crap. I think I heard a saying about that once

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!

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.

Bro, I'm so glad that you got the nod!!

 

None more deserving on this board and I know there won't be any stoneless sugar coating from you, lol

 

Truth be told, THAT is why I'm glad that you're included in this little get together, haha

 

Stay well Bro, have fun and God Speed :)

 

My Best,

Richard

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!

Yep, You and Tai nailed it as these Guys represent the best of WRX

 

Well, I'd throw you two in that group but with your Little Guys, you've go your hands full, lol

 

I hope you both are well as are your Little Men :)

 

Always,

Richard

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.
