Recommended Posts

I'm Harry Arnett, the EVP of Marketing for Callaway. I've been at Callaway since July. I'm an avid golfer, have been in the industry for a while, and have been a lurker on this particular site and a big fan for quite some time. As part of introducing the new Callaway Golf Company to everyone, we spoke with the Golfwrx powers-that-be and thought it'd be a cool idea to have an official presence on the site (and others, potentially, as well). We'll be here in case there's anything that we'd like to clear up in the chatter amongst Golfwrx as well as answer any Callaway specific questions anybody might have. I'll be on here in person and you'll see an official Callaway username pop up here too.

 

We know this is really unconventional and our goal here is just give you guys some access to our company, our products, and our coming attractions...We're trying to do things differently, obviously, and we believe that being available and a part of the community of people that are most passionate about our game is necessary and critical. We'll see how it goes. If it's lame, we'll stop!

 

Looking forward to it.

 

Harry

Too bad Callaway is laying off some good people in the soft good division.

I assume you mean our new driver in the RAZR FIT type class, and we're not quite ready to reveal the particulars about this one. But I think you guys will absolutely love the look of it and will absolutely geek out about the performance. We're just now showing our retailers, staff professionals, and shop guys the product.

The reason we wait a bit before we reveal to you all is that we still haven't yet completed all of our sales meetings around the world and we like for our internal groups to hear first about the product before consumers and retailers do.

And we'll also be chatting with you guys from this account (my name is Chad Coleman and I'm the Social Media Manager at Callaway). Like Harry said, we're not here to police or persuade anyone - just want to get to know you guys a little better and answer any questions you might have about Callaway and where we're heading as a company.

If you're on Twitter, feel free to follow us there as well (fair warning - Harry is know to go on rants about the Braves and/or Falcons and/or Georgia Bulldogs from time to time):

Hey, we know we'll get the occasional and inevitable "You guys suck...blah, blah, blah...San Dimas Highschool Football Rules!" But we'll hang in there as long as you guys think we're adding value to the forum and not detracting from the fun you guys have on here.

Welcome Harry and Chad. And no problem talking about the Dawgs, anything is better than Gator talk.

Looking forward to the next lines of forged irons.

Will there be a new hybrid in 2013.... Or are those to be replaced by the Utility irons??
[/quote]

Yes, we'll have a new hybrid. Utility iron is definitely more of a club that will preferred more by better players than meant for the broader market.

Welcome Harry and Chad!! Welcome to WRX!! This is outstanding!! Welcome to the board!!

Can you tell us anything about the new forged cavity back iron offering to be released in 2013??

Will they be similar for a combo set with the new X Prototype Utility irons??

Hold that question for a little while and we can answer (or will get our iron team on here) all your iron questions.

Well I (Chad) am an Arkansas fan. So basically anything in the world is better than talking about the Razorbacks right now.

But we're very, very excited about our entire new line of irons for next year. Roger Cleveland and the guys in R&D literally cannot stop talking about them. Will give you more info as soon as we're allowed!

Harry and Chad welcome officially. ;)

Great to see your here and reaching out like this. Touch of class. Look forward to all the buzzz we are hearing in regards to the new lines and a new beginning. Harry I met you when you were at TMag and great to see you on board at Cally.

In case you missed some of the killer pieces that Chris Koske from Odyssey has shared with us over the years...
