Well if it is on the conforming list it has to be classified as a Driver:

I am thinking this is the 10-11* Monster in a 3 wood sized head that [b]Phil can control and shape.[/b]

Lol. US Open 2008 worked well for him with that strategy. Phil is a great player if his timing is on, no club is going to change the fact that his swing has a tendency to get off and he can spray anything from a driver down to a 5 iron off the tee. It's usually just a coincidence that a new club makes him play better.....he's already switched drivers from the one he couldn't stop mentioning after the Phoenix tournament on how great he hits it. I do hope he plays well and we have a Tiger/Phil showdown this week.....

Hey all: Thanks for the find looks interesting. As far as only being listed on the USGA site in LH that's because It is considered a one off club for the masters for Phil only. There have been many one off clubs made over the years ,but it seems that Phil and Tiger are the only players that are big enough for anyone to really care. Thanks :wave:

How is this gonna help him with those short putts?

Wouldn't it be funny if this whole thing was just a myth, Phil may just show up to the first tee on Thursday with his normal stock set, and the driver he was raving about back in Arizona.

Ping G410 3, 5 and 7 wood

This club is like a two wood essentially. Bigger than the 3Deep, 9.2 degrees loft and 45 inches long. This info. was passed along to me from a reputable source at Callaway. They currently have no plans for retail. I was given the ok to report this here.

Yes ft optiforce it was mentioned in the other thread.
It was trademarked by cally in late january :)

FT Optiforce seems like an extension on the "OptiFit" (the adapter on RF, RFX & X-Hot woods) name. I also think FT was short for Fusion Technology or similar... Not really sure where they might be going w/ all of it though.

I can picture it now. He is going to bomb it 295 in the fairway all week, win the Masters, and then pull it out of the bag a few weeks later for something else.

Perhaps they registered the name to throw us off the trail or for future planning years ahead.

I can't see another driver being released until next year at least.

except he will lose by 2 because he will miss the putts with his ever changing grip

Maybe next, he will get a special prototype putter made for the U.S. Open

I love that it's only available in LH and hope it stays that way. Then RH golfers can get a slight understanding of being a lefty golfer who misses out on so much equipment.

So does the guy here on golfwrx who started the frankenwood name get some credit/love from Callaway? Some free clubs maybe?

Its not our fault that you choose to stand on the wrong side of the ball :)

Jumping in here.... just thought id clearify it for you... have a look at a left handed golfer from a down the line shot... he/she is standing to the right of the golf ball, therefore he/she is on the RIGHT side of the ball ;)
