(4) Testers Wanted

Callaway GBB Epic Driver

 

 

 

This may very well be the big one of the year, fellow GolfSpies. You might even say it's....

 

Epic!

 

Okay, sorry. 

 

This week's test and review opportunity is for one of the driver stories of 2017, the Callaway GBB Epic. We're looking for 4 avid golfers to test and review (and keep) the number one selling driver in the US for the last three consecutive months.

We saw the Epic finish in second place, just an eyelash behind the Srixon Z 565 in the MGS Most Wanted Driver Testing last week, so we know the thing is pretty hot. 

 

How hot? That's what we want you to tell us.  If you'd like to apply to be one of the four Epic testers, here's what you need to do:

 

In this thread (and ONLY in this thread), please tell us....

 

1. First name and home state or province

2. Current handicap

3. Current driver and shaft combo

4. Driver swing speed and carry distance

5. Favorite Callaway Staffer

 

We'll announce the 4 testers in this thread next week.  Good luck to all!!!
