NEW Callaway Epic Drivers and Fairway Woods Announced

Today Callaway Golf , an industry leader in golf equipment and innovation, announced its new family of Epic Drivers and Epic Fairway Woods . The Epic product line is framing the future of speed, with exceptional new technologies that are designed to deliver fast ball speeds for every type of player.

Epic Driver lineup is available in three models – Epic Speed, Epic MAX, Epic MAX LS – and it’s led by our new Jailbreak A.I. Speed Frame. Previous Jailbreak architectures stiffened the body in the vertical direction. By applying Artificial Intelligence, this new structure improves stability in both the horizontal and torsional direction. The result is exceptional ball speeds across the entire face.

Callaway's A.I.-designed Flash Face is specifically engineered to optimize the Jailbreak Speed Frame, promoting fast speeds across a more expansive area. Each face and each head geometry are uniquely enhanced in Epic Speed, and the super strength titanium promotes maximum speed, forgiveness and spin robustness.

Epic Speed is Callaway's fastest Epic ever, Epic MAX is their most forgiving Epic ever, and Epic MAX LS is designed for mid- to-low handicap players who want more speed, neutral ball flight and forgiveness in a lower spin, high MOI package.

Two new fairway wood models are available – Epic Speed (which appeals to a wide range of players) and Epic MAX (which promotes more forgiveness in an oversized shape.

Their exceptional ball speeds start with the new Jailbreak A.I. Velocity Blades. Callaway used A.I. to design a completely new Jailbreak system which spreads and angles the Jailbreak blades. Along with stiffening the body, the new design allows the forged face cup to flex efficiently. Every model and every face in our new fairway woods are uniquely designed using advanced A.I. It’s a proven technology that puts an even greater emphasis on center and off-center ball speeds.

Epic Speed, Epic MAX and EPIC MAX LS Driver Pricing: $529.99
Epic Speed and MAX Fairway Wood Pricing: $299.99 each

Pre-Sale Date (On All Epic Drivers and Fairway Woods): 1/26/21

We often talk bout how to overcome slumps and mental blocks in golf... But how do you stay at the top when you are performing well in the game?

Why do many golfers have difficulty staying at the top or maintaining a high ranking?

Can you relate to the following scenario? You put in a lot of time and hard work to break into the Top-10: extra time on the putting greens, more time at the driving range, a bit more work with a golf pro, additional weight training, hours working with a mental training coach, etc...

You saw a lot of improvement and the hard work paid off as you climbed the rankings and placed higher in tournaments. Finally, you achieved exactly what you set out to do. You felt proud and accomplished.

Now came the tricky part... maintaining momentum and staying at the top.
You felt happy to be "there." You were content so you felt you no longer needed the extra work. You settled back into your old ways. You slowly tapered off the extra training sessions.

Instead of continuing doing what got you "there" in the first place, you pulled back. Your play slowly declined. You had a formula for success but chose not to repeat the strategies that led to your success. Your scores suffered and you became frustrated at the fact you worked so hard to get there and were back to square one.

If you do not continue to work at a high level, it's harder to perform consistently at a high level.

In the LGPA, many golfers are battling for the No. 1 ranking. When So Yeon Ryu reached the World No. 1 ranking in 2021, Ryu decided to work on her game even further. Resting on her laurels was not an option. Instead, Ryu focused on her next goal of achieving the career grand slam.

RYU: "Even though I'm No. 1 right now, I still have to knock down three more tournaments to become a Grand Slam winner. So I don't think I'm going to stop improving myself."

Success requires continued work. If working with a mental game coach helps improve your focus, continue your work with a mental game coach.

If strength training helped add more distance to your drives, continue your strength training.

If taking extra putting practice helped improve your confidence, continue your extra work on the putting greens.

Following your success formula will help you maintain momentum and achieve more in your golf game.

How to Continue to Perform at a High Level:

To maintain your winning ways, you need to keep working on your game.

What is your success recipe? What practice and preparation routines helped you to play your best golf. Does mental training, strength training, additional practice rounds, work with a private instructor help you succeed?

What do you need to focus on to further improve your game and accomplish your next goal? What is your weakest link in your game?

Create a plan to improve your weaknesses and how you will go about putting your plan into action.

Asking and answering these important questions will help you understand and replicate your formula for continued success.

SPECIAL NOTICE

Please don’t be fooled by imitators of the Professional Golf Teachers Association of America. It has come to our attention that several other organizations are attempting to hijack our reputation, our certification designations, mimic our unique programs, especially our Home Study module, and in some cases, leverage even our name as their own. The name “Professional Golf Teachers Association of the United States”, formerly operated by National Golf Schools has ceased to exist after a settlement was reached between the parties.

The Professional Golf Teachers Association of America is and always will be the foremost 100% professional golf teaching certification institute in the world.

While these other programs and teaching organizations direct their marketing materials and resources to the targeting of all applicants (to cover their extensive advertising and marketing costs), whether qualified or not, the PGTAA’s philosophy and target market are that individual/golfer who desires to be a teaching professional in the field and not just an enthusiast. Since 1997 our mandatory personal telephone interview helps the PGTAA maintain their high level of members appreciated by all in the golf industry.

We do not offer various levels of certifications designed to separate you from your money and whose “membership/certification/levels of instructor” cards are useless and of zero value in the golf industry.

When comparing the PGTAA to ANY other teaching institutions, whether the PGA, LPGA, or USGTF, our cost to become a fully certified golf teaching professional is $995.00 via the Home Study module.

Going through the certification programs of the aforementioned organizations, specifically the PGA and LPGA, could cost you in excess of $5,000.00!

Additionally, contrary to what any of these alternate “schools” tell you, ONE CANNOT BECOME A PROFESSIONAL GOLF TEACHER IN A 5-DAY SCHOOL NO MORE THAN YOU CAN BECOME A DENTIST, PLUMBER ELECTRICIAN OR ANY OTHER PROFESSION. The theoretical foundation requires studying. At the PGTAA, our written manuals exceed 700 pages and include a DVD of all the key points of teaching and playing golf.

Most importantly, the PGTAA is 100% all about teaching.

The PGTAA has over 50 Tour players including Master’s, PGA, and US Open Champions, who avail themselves of our member’s teaching expertise.

There is only one Professional Golf Teachers Association of America, and you can always find us at PGTAA.com.
