This goes out to all you naysers out there who think the Callaway Epic driver furvor on the internet is just a bunch of hype. I was proud to host a Callaway regional “Epic” event yesterday at Independence where 60+ representatives from all aspects of the regional golf community (Big Box, Green Grass, Mom+Pop, etc.) attended for a fun-filled afternoon of classroom and hands-on outdoor stations including wedge fittings, iron fittings, and driver/epic fitting/challenge.
The photo of the epic driver challenge results (which is proudly mounted by the door to my tour trailer) is a true non-biased representation of how truly Epic this driver is. Now there are only 15 entries on the leaderboard so I can’t show you the total results but EVERYONE added both ball speed and yardage in comparison to their current “gamer” drivers which everyone was encouraged to bring.
The field comprised of professionals, scratch amateurs, and everyday hacks with all competing drivers present (Cobra, Titleist, Taylor Made, Nike, etc).
MEDIAN AVERAGE YARDAGE GAIN = 12 YARDS!!!!
MEDIAN AVERAGE BALL SPEED GAIN = 6 MPH
On a side note – Data Tech February nationwide driver share increase for Callaway = 17 %
Sorry TM – One more nail in your coffin
