  1. Went to a Callaway Demo Day yesterday looking for a 5-wood. Recently dropped my 3i to pick up an extra wedge and I don't love my GAPR Lo. Golf Galaxy has Epic Flash 5 woods for $200, so I figured I would use the fitting to see what shaft would make the most sense. The fitting, however, took a bit of a turn. Instead of the stiff-flex HZDRUS like my driver, I ended up in an X-flex Rogue White. Even stranger (to me) is that I was hitting the Mavrik SZ 4 wood off the deck as far as my 3 wood teed up and the Mavrik 5 wood was almost the same distance but with a higher flight and more spin, neither of which I need. I *love* my 3 wood off the tee, but it's such a deep face, I really can't hit it off the deck. So now I'm in a bit of a conundrum: drop the 3 wood and game a Mavrik SZ 4 wood, but keep the GAPR? Or keep the 3w but get the Epic Flash SZ 5w and loft up? (If it helps, clubhead speed for the 16.5* 4w was right at 100mph at 12.1 launch with ~3200 spin. And I get a 20% discount if I order through my club in addition to having $85 in my credit account.)
  2. Hello everyone, I have been playing callaway chrome soft for quite some time. I have tried other balls here and there, such as pro v1, bridgestone e6 and tour 330, maxfli tour, and just recently the supersoft from callaway. This is from the time i started playing 5 years ago up until last weekend. I love the way the chrome soft feel on a well hit shot and it was ok on mishits. The supersoft was less erratic and i will find out this weekend more about the distance. Im not even remotely close to a scratch golfer, but i figure straighter is better and should result in lower scoring. Im hoping the supersoft keeps going straight and i dont lose too much distance and control around the greens. Anyone have any thoughts on this, or any experience?
  3. Hope you enjoy this setup as much as I've enjoyed looking at some of yours - Cheers MGS! I'll start off with saying this is the first set of irons I've owned that aren't Mizuno and the first wedges that aren't Cleveland. I picked up the game about 15 years ago after I graduated college - finding a great set of Mizuno T-Zoids, GBB 4-wood, Driver, Cleveland wedges, and an old 1969 Ping hotdog putter at a garage sale for $20 with bag (I have all these clubs still - maybe I'll do a WITB with this set too). The lady that sold it to me told me that her husband just bought all new stuff and didn't need it anymore but he didn't know she was selling it. I have to assume he's never let her forget that - assuming he let her live. Fast forward 12 years through several used sets of Mizuno Irons, Celeveland wedges and revisions on all of these clubs I'm feeling great with every club in here, but feeling odd without the Mizuno irons in there. Long story short - Mixed bag, mixed feelings. I acquired the set of PXG's over the winter at a local shop for $400 and figured I couldn't pass them up. I did a shaft fitting and wow that makes all the difference. Right now the DG120S fit my game perfectly. Last year I went to a demo days, expecting to move from Cleveland to Callaway wedges (love the look), and somehow, after hours of hitting wedges walked away with Mizuno JPX919's. Still shocked because I had never considered Mizuno wedges, it was definitely not a brand name purchase - they were just the best for my swing. Same story with the Exotics 3W. Was expecting to walk away with a Rogue - but feel, sound, and launch monitor all agreed - Exoitcs it was. I stumbled into the Rogue driver after I got fit for the Epic a few years ago and had massive quality issues with it. Four Epic's later and one exploded crown, they sent me a Rogue and it's been fantastic. I think the most interesting club in my bag is my putter. I picked this up a few years into the game and haven't found better. I moved to the Spider last year and part of this year but had to come back to my Bobby Grace and it felt like coming home. I own 6 Bobby Grace putters, but the M5K-GT is the go to. Why Bobby Grace? I'm not sure... but it's been my thing. As a side note, I've always played Bridgestone balls, but this year decided to dedicate a year to ProV1 - it just seemed like I should probably play at least one season with the most popular ball in golf. I've been happy so far but am dying to give this years Bridgeys a couple rounds, too.

  6. Actually did a video of what's in my bag for 2020. I'm a team Callaway supporter all the way. I break down not only the clubs in my bag but also what accessories I have as well. https://youtu.be/a8PTyUVbPPE
  7. Hey Crew, Long time forum reader, first time poster, forgive me if I ramble. Excited to talk golf! 2020 is the year I decided to step outside my comfort zone. I had struggled for years with the common inner struggle of “Am I good enough to hit ‘players’ irons?”. After hitting a Callaway X Forged ‘18 7 iron at my local G.T. I was in love. The smile that hitting the middle of that club put on my face was something I had never experienced in golf. I was addicted, but they weren’t ‘meant’ for me (18 hcp at the time). After a few more visits, a few more hits, I decided if they weren’t meant for me, I had better improve, I needed these clubs in my life! 2 months in, 32 rounds down, couldn’t be happier with my decision. When I put a good swing on the ball I get good results, bad swing, bad results *BUT* I know exactly where I mishit it. As for my driver, what a story... Last year I purchased a Callaway Fusion Driver second hand. Liked it, but didn’t LOVE it. Distance was ok, sound wasn’t my jam. About half way through the season I took my honey out for her first round of golf. 3 Holes in, after assuring her “Don’t worry babe, you won’t hurt my clubs”, she tees off, something doesn’t sound right.... I inspect my driver to find a crack in the top crown. So, it sat in a closet for the rest of the year, assuming there was nothing Callaway would do, as I purchased it second hand. Before throwing it out this year I decided, what’s the harm in asking them. I called Callaway customer service, was completely honest about where I purchased it and what happened. They confirmed there was no warranty BUT they are happy to keep me as a customer and instructed me to pick a shaft from their stock offerings as they would send me an Epic Flash..... Jaw dropped....Stunned. This driver is mind blowing, I have never had confidence off the tee with Driver. I’m consistently 10-20 yds further and much more accurate. (See photo below, My drive on a 310 yd Par 4 - Dogleg Left - Bunker on Right side of green. Thread the needle and putting for eagle!) Everyone always says “it’s not the club”. While I agree to an extent, everyone of my friends that has hit this club has gotten consistently better results than their own driver. A few stating they hit their longest drive ever with it. A few searching for deals to purchase their own. I was so happy with Callaway’s service and product I filled out the bag with the following: Callaway Epic Flash 9 deg. Kuro Kage TiNi Silver 70g Callaway Epic Flash 5W Project X Hzrdus Smoke 70g Callaway X-Forged ‘18 3-PW KBS Tour 90 Callaway Forged 52-56 DG S300 Callaway Forged 60 DG S400 Scotty Cameron Kombi S
  8. Hey all, for my first post I have a question. I bought my first clubs almost 10 years ago at a pawn shop. A year or two later I won a graphite shaft from this site, so I bought a driver head off of eBay (Callaway RAZR Fit Xtreme). I didn't know any better to look up club testing so I went ahead and got it assembled at a local golf shop. It never felt great, but it worked pretty well and I would get the occasional 300+ yard drive. Recently though I have completely taken it out of the bag. I can barely hit the thing 200 yards now. Is it just dead? I would imagine that happens to all clubs at some point but I honestly don't know. Thanks!
  9. What do you guys think about this 2 on 2 match they just announced? Sent from my SM-N970U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  10. I picked up a box of these for $20 in an East Texas pro shop while on the road this weekend. I couldn't help myself because this was my favorite ball back when I was a junior. There was something about the name and the red-orange Callaway logo and Warbird emblazened on the cover that drew me to them then. Of course back then I needed the distance, and now I prefer something with a little more feel and workability. But I played a round with them for nostalgia sake, and I have to say I was a little disappointed. For the lack of spin I figured I might pick up a little more yardage but I couldn't tell much difference in the category. For those of you that used to hit this back in the day, am I just recalling the find memories of jr golf or was this ball never all that special. These certainly feel like the $20 I paid for them, which I suppose is the anticlimactic answer, I just hoped for a little more. Sent from my SM-G973U using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  12. With divided bags being of countless variations, what do you all prefer? I have a mizuno Aerolite micro bag that i have been using for about 4 years. I would like to get a new 14 way bag because I am a meticulous person. But I figured I would ask since there is nothing else better to do with this quarantine.

  14. Seeing heavy marketing for the 2nd gen CBX wedges from cleveland. Many other manufacturers have come out with models similar to these. I just don't see the cavity on a wedge doing much. Anyone have cavity back wedges or has given them a try? Are they worth the hype?

  18. Hi All, So last spring I went to True Spec Golf and got a full bag fitting. The only clubs not fitted were the Ping Wedges and the putter. I just changed the shaft in the putter last week to The Stability Shaft and regripped the bag with Lamkin Sonar Tour Calibrate. I'm pretty sure it's the Indian not the arrow now. Here's all the deets. IRONS Apex 19 5-AW Shafts NIPPON NS950 S 5I WEDGES PING Glide 2.0 Stealth 54° & 58° SS DRIVER M6 9° Shaft FUJIKURA TSG PRO XLR8 61 S 3 WOOD M6 Shaft OBAN ISAWA RED 75 04 HYBRIDS cobra King F9 Speedback 3&4 Shafts KBS TOUR HB GRAPHITE 75 R PUTTER ER2cs 370gr Shaft The Stability Shaft Lamkin Sonar+ Tour Calibrate Standard Golf Grips I also use Garmin Approach S62 and TecTecTec Range Finder. And a SkyTrak launch monitor for the three times a week or so I hit the mat.
  19. Alright everyone, here's my WITB for 2020: Umbrella - I usually don't have it in the bag, but for these pics & the sketchy weather in the north east right now. Its in the bag. Driver - Callaway Epic Flash SZ - 9* - HZRDS Yellow 65x - I turn the head down 1* to 8* and move it to the D (Draw setting) Driving Iron - Ping G410 Crossover - 17* 2i - Alta CB 70x Irons - 4i - PW - Callaway X-Forged 18 - Project X 6.5 Shafts - 2*UP lie - "Standard" Callaway X-Forged lofts & lengths Wedges - Titleist Vokey SM7 - 50* - 54* - 60* - Standard L/L/L Putter - Taylormade TP Patina Series - Del Monte- 2* Loft - 70* Lie - 35" Ball - Bridgestone Tour BX - Flower mark on it, I haven't seen anyone else with that (that i play with) so its very easy to identify which ball is mine! I recently purchased some Srixon iron heads & some KBS $Taper 130x shafts, so i'm going to be giving those a whirl when the shafts come in! Pumped for the weather to start turning so we can get on the course more than once/wk! Also the putt out mat & putting trainer is awesome, def worth the investment, my putting has dramatically improved & my consistency is much better! I just purchased the mirror to take to the course and work on my putting stroke, looking forward to even more positive feedback!
  20. Here is my WITB for 2020. Although it may change with the addition of addition of a new driver. Driver - Taylor Made M1 10.5° 75g Aldila Rogue Stiff 3W - Callaway Epic Sub-zero, set to 15°, HRZDUS Smoke Stiff Hybrid - Taylor Made Rescue - 3i Irons - Mizuno MP-5 (7-PW), MP-25 (4-6) Wedges - S5, 50°, 54°, 58° Putter - Scotty Cameron Newport 2.5 Ball - ProV1x
  21. Callaway Tour Notes - #1 Driver At WGC Mexico Championship Callaway is the #1 Driver Brand at the WGC Mexico Championship, and we’ve got some other great early notes on Tour this week: Callaway Is The #1 Driver Brand At WGC Mexico AND At The Puerto Rico Open It’s a big week on Tour for our drivers, as Callaway is the #1 Driver Brand at the WGC Mexico Championship, and we’re the #1 Driver Brand at the Puerto Rico Open – the other PGA Tour event being held this week. The success at the WGC is led by the popularity for our MAVRIK Drivers, and at the Puerto Rico Open there are 22 MAVRIK Driver models in play. Our MAVRIK Drivers are dominating all over the world - last Sunday two non-Callaway staffers won with the driver on the Champions Tour and Korn Ferry Tour, MAVRIK has earned two LPGA wins already, Marc Leishman won with it at Torrey Pines, and some of the best in the game like Phil Mickelson and Xander Schauffele are contending with MAVRIK in the bag. Odyssey Sweeps PGA Tour Putter Counts Odyssey is having an outstanding week as well – it’s the #1 Putter Brand at the WGC Mexico Championship with 41.7% of all putters in play – more than the #2 and #3 putter brands in the field combined. The success is led by our Stroke Lab Black Ten Putters, which continue to be an extremely popular choice on Tour. And at the Puerto Rico Open, there are 50 Odyssey Putters in play (also 41.7% of the field). Odyssey continues to have the most putter wins of any brand by far in 2020. 50% Of Chrome Soft Golf Balls In Play At WGC Have Triple Track Our Chrome Soft Triple Track family continues to make a significant impact on Tour for players like Phil Mickelson, Xander Schauffele, Francesco Molinari and Dylan Frittelli among many others, and this week 50% of our Chrome Soft Golf Balls in play at the WGC event feature Triple Track Technology. This innovation uses Vernier Hyper Acuity with the three lines on the ball to help significantly improve a player’s putting alignment.
  22. Phil Mickelson Puts In New MAVRIK Sub Zero Driver This week, Callaway staffer Phil Mickelson is using a new MAVRIK Sub Zero Driver (9*) and he played his first tournament round with it earlier today on the European Tour. His new gamer driver has a KBS Prototype shaft, and he carded an opening round 66 to move near the top of the leaderboard. Mickelson likes how much he can control the new driver on different types of shots – he’s added more control shots with MAVRIK Sub Zero in addition to his “bomb” swing which he uses to hit his longest drives. He likes the launch and spin that he gets from this model. The MAVRIK Sub Zero features our new A.I. designed Flash Face SS20, which is engineered to promote fast ball speeds across a more expansive area in each model and loft. It also delivers a great combination of low spin & high MOI, and features two interchangeable weights to fine tune trajectory. Our MAVRIK Drivers are off to an impressive start on Tour – last week Marc Leishman won with MAVRIK at the Farmers Insurance Open, and Madelene Sagstrom earned her first LPGA Tour win with MAVRIK in the bag. Callaway is the #1 driver brand across the major worldwide Tours so far this year, and there are 26 MAVRIK driver models in play this week on the European Tour. Callaway is the #1 fairway wood brand and irons brand at the European Tour event as well, and Odyssey is the #1 Putter brand with over 56% of all putters in play! In addition to his new driver, Mickelson is using a new MAVRIK Sub Zero Fairway Wood (13.5*) this week. For the MAVRIK Fairway Woods, our new A.I. optimized Flash Face SS20 is forged from exotic materials, which are uniquely designed for each model and loft to maximize ball speed and performance.
  23. Been a good golf year and I’m getting pumped for next year. For now it’s clean the clubs and practice putting in the garage. Curious to see if anyone plays or has opinions about my clubs.

  25. Almost a total remodel of the bag. Epic Flash SZ 10.5 set at -1 N Graphite Design Tour AD TSG Blue X (45") M3 15 set at -2 Paderson Fairway KG 860-F30 S Epic Flash SZ 18 set at S N Tensei AV Blue 70 X Z585 4 & 5 KBS C Taper S Z785 6-AW KBS C Taper S Glide Forged 56 KBS Hi Rev 2.0 Glide Forged 60 KBS Hi Rev 2.0 SS 28 CS 33" Driver: Thank you MGS, flat out the best driver I have ever had in the bag. 3W: A random purchase after being unable to hit the original epic 3w. Put same shaft that I was fit for in the epic and it has been a match made in heaven. Absolute money from the tee and I know exactly what it will do from the fairway. Combined with the driver there are not many par 5's that I can't reach. 5W: Solid club but this spot has always been a trouble spot in my bag and that hasn't changed in 20 years. Irons: Love the combo and they feel absolutely amazing. All of them are 1* strong, standard lie and +1/2" Biggest thing I was looking for in making the change was more control. They definitely fly different than P790's but hopefully after an adjustment period they will meet or exceed my expectations. Wedges: A different look from what I am used to but feel is amazing. The shaft on full swings is so easy for me to deliver correctly. Putter: Not a fast revolving door but one that moves some. Have gotten used to the look of the center shaft but still struggling with alignment some. Ball: Titleist PROV1X #23 imprinted with THEZIPR in blue. Have played this ball since its birth and while I have tried many other options nothing has been able to kick it out. Rangefinder: Bushnell PRO X2 Glove: Footjoy Weathersof. Love the Ping tour glove but at the rate I go through gloves I just can't justify the price difference. Shoes: Ecco Biom G 3 BOA and Biom Hybrid 3 BOA. Most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.
