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
Product At Retail Date (On All Epic Drivers and Fairway Woods): 2/18/21

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.

What’s important to know and remember, is that at private and semi-private golf clubs, many opportunities abound for those teachers who are personable and offer interpersonal skills.

For those teachers who belong to a club, they are able to relate to the “whole family” and are at ease with their membership, can offer a head pro an alternative to allowing the pro to take a vacation and to reduce his teaching workload.

Being able to conduct yourself professionally, dress the part play better golf than the membership, and know how to teach, (especially the fundamentals), are ideal ingredients to enhance your teaching practice.

Custom Club Fitting, Club Building, and Repairs Module

In our continuing mission of educating true professional golf teachers, this module is separate from the primary syllabus. Not only will this module increase your knowledge; benefit the player himself or herself, but also to afford the golf pro an ancillary income generating opportunity.
Available only for the 5-Day On-Site Course and Business & Marketing Module attendees.
A minimum of 6 students per class is required. $100.00 – 4 hours

________________________________________

Take a walk up and down the driving range, and a few things immediately are observable:
1. Not All Golfers Talk the Same
2. Not All Golfers Swing the Same
3. Not All Golfers Dress the Same

Only when you can put the same swing on every golf club, can you compete at the highest level and achieve results truly commensurate with your ability.
Probably the best example of this commitment to precision tuned and precision manufacturing, was when the great Ben Hogan invited Jack Fleck to the Hogan factory in Fort Worth to be fitted a set of precision Hogan golf clubs. The difference to Jack Fleck’s game resulted in his winning of the 1955 US Open over none other than Ben Hogan himself in a playoff.

Today all tour players today are precisely fit and most equipped with precision golf sets. There are 14 different considerations to include when custom fitting a set of clubs. On the other hand, the majority of the general golf public is stuck with off the shelf, mass- produced, inferior sets of clubs that do not match their swings.

So what’s the point? Custom Fitting is BACK. BIG TIME and we are not talking about the major manufacturer’s “Golf Fitting Carts” found on ranges and country clubs. Another favorable consideration – custom fitting runs about the same price as off the shelf clubs and if one has access to custom fitting, it would be well worth the time and effort.

Benefits:

• Taught by Professional Clubmakers’ Society members in their shops
• Learn to build, repair and fit golf clubs
• Offers student total service under one roof
• Lucrative cash generating option

Learn to build, repair and fit golf clubs. You will be taught how to determine loft, lie angles, shaft types and shaft replacement, shaft flexes, length, grip size and grip replacement, kick points and head designs and refinishing that will allow your customer/student to obtain the best possible clubs suited for his game.
