Patrick Reed and Callaway Ready for the FedEx Cup Playoffs

Patrick Reed was struggling. By the end of April 2013, he’d entered 13 PGA Tour events and had missed the cut eight times. Save for a 7th place finish at Pebble beach in February, his first full season on Tour was horrific. In fact, from mid-march through the end of April, Reed had missed the cut in 5 of 6 tournaments and finished t71st—almost dead last--in the only event in which he’d managed to play the weekend. With the truncated 2013 season half over, Reed made the switch to Callaway in May. Since then, he’s missed only one cut and garnered 4 top ten finishes, including his first ever victory at the Wyndham Championship, and earned over $1.6 million and enough FedEx Cup points to begin the playoffs at number 22 in total points earned. Reed’s change to Callaway in May resulted in stellar play ever since, and in July he added the new FT Optiforce 440 Driver and Mack Daddy 2 Wedges to his bag. Entering the FedEx Cup playoffs, he’s one of the tour’s hottest players with top tens in his last three starts. In winning the Wyndham Championship, Reed was 1st in Greens in Regulation, 5th in putting and 11th in driving distance. We can’t tell you definitively that Reed’s game turned the corner with Callaway, but the stats don’t lie…and they would indicate the equipment change propelled his season in a new—and highly lucrative—direction. Here’s Patrick Reeds Bag; DRIVER: Callaway FT Optiforce 440 (9.5 degree) with an Aldila Rogue shaft IRONS: Callaway X Forged (2-iron bent to 15 degree, 2- and 4-irons) and Callaway Razr X MB (5-PW) with True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts WEDGES: Callaway Mack Daddy 2 (50, 56 and 60 degree) with True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts PUTTER: Odyssey White Hot Pro #3 BALL: Callaway Hex Chrome+ You'll find Patrick Reed's Callaway equipment and much more at DGW.

Mickelson + Callaway = Open Championship

By his own admission, there was a time when even Phil Mickelson, not one known for self doubt, questioned his ability to ever win a British Open. That changed Sunday with his victory at Muirfield. Phil’s first Open Championship and fifth Major title was much more dramatic than the three shot margin of victory would indicate. Starting the day 5 shots off the lead, Mickelson was steady, if not spectacular through the first 12 holes on a day when steady looked, well, spectacular compared with the rest of the field. Pars were at a premium and birdies were scarce. So it was remarkable that Phil played the last 6 holes in 4 under par, sealing the victory and ending a tournament that looked as if it were anyone’s game until that final, fateful hour. How did he do it?   Phil is known for changing up his equipment, for experimenting (see, e.g. The Phrankenwood) and for tailoring his equipment to the venue and conditions, even more so than your average tour pro, who does a fair amount of all of the above. For the Open Championship, Phil packed five wedges and no driver, opting to tackle the lengthier tee shots with a Callaway X Hot Pro 3Deep Three Wood. In the end, he credited his three wood and his Odyssey Versa #9 Putter for his finish as the only golfer in the field to break par. And Mickelson is nothing, if not gracious, so it was no big surprise, really, when he thanked the Callaway design team and technical folks for outfitting him with the perfect set to fashion what he claimed to be his best round of golf ever as a professional.   Here’s Phil’s Bag:   Fairway Wood: Callaway X Hot 3 Deep (13°) Hybrid: Ping Anser (17°) Irons: Callaway X Forged (4-PW) Wedges: Callaway Mack Daddy 2 (60°, 64°); Callaway X Series Jaws (52°, 56°) Putter: Odyssey Versa #9 Ball: Callaway Hex Chrome+   For a limited time Callaway and DGW are commemorating Mickelson’s winning score of 281 with a celebratory sale on Callaway Hex Chrome+ Golf Balls for $28.10. We have all of Phil’s Callaway equipment at DGW.

Justin Rose and TaylorMade Winners at US Open

The USGA likes to say they set up the US Open venue to identify the very best player as our nation’s champion. And despite the fact that this isn’t always the case—see Michael Campbell--Justin Rose clearly fit that description for the Open just ended at Merion Golf Club. In the end, he struck the ball better and putted better than anyone else through 4 rounds on what appeared to be the hardest golf course on the planet. Particularly impressive were his clutch putting, including a 20 footer for birdie on 13 that tied him for the lead, and his long iron play on both 17 and 18. Of course, he had to hit fairways to hit good iron shots, and none was more impressive than the drive on 18, setting up the opportunity to rip a 4 iron dead at the hole, and effectively eliminating any legitimate drama from Phil Mickelson’s finish.   Rose used a full complement of TaylorMade equipment, including the new Lethal Golf Ball. Here’s his bag:   Driver: TaylorMade R1 Fairway Wood: TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 Tour Irons: TaylorMade RocketBladez Tour (3-6), Tour Preferred MB (7-PW) Wedges: TaylorMade ATV (52°, 56°, 60°) Putter: TaylorMade Spider Blade Ball: TaylorMade Lethal   Check out DGW today for all your TaylorMade equipment needs.    

Nike Golf Limited Edition Products Commemorate Golf's Greatest Moments

April is just around the corner and for even the casual golf fan that means only one thing: The Masters is coming. It’s not the oldest Major championship, and it may not have the deepest field, but The Masters is universally revered by pros and amateurs alike as their favorite. The Masters is loved in part, but only in part, because it’s the first Major of the year. Far more important is the location of the event, Augusta National, and the unique traditions that have developed over the years since Clifford Roberts and Bobby Jones first decided to hold their invitational tournament in 1934. And the most identifiable part of Masters Tradition involves the yellow Masters flag and the ubiquitous green which one finds well, everywhere in Augusta during Masters Week. In anticipation of the tournament, Nike will release three limited addition items to commemorate the year’s first Major. [caption id="" align="alignleft" width="470" caption="Nike Limited Edition Lunar Control Golf Shoes 2012"][/caption] First, in the footwear category, Nike has designed and will have available April 2, the exclusive, Limited Edition Lunar Control, uniquely designed with green accents in very limited quantities. Like Augusta National, these shoes are simply gorgeous to look at, so you may be tempted to put them on display, alongside the cool leather and canvass shoe bag that comes with each pair. If you choose to wear them, you’ll know why these shoes are favored by a number of Tour players, including Charl Schwartzel, who happened to win…oh yeah, The 2011 Masters. With Nike’s Lunarlon cushioning system and stealthy Flywire construction combining for the ultimate in comfort and performance, look for Charl to be sporting a pair of Lunar Controls as he traverses the Augusta fairways. When you tee it up you may want to use the Limited Edition Green Swoosh 20XI Golf Ball. This player’s ball delivers faster initial velocity for maximum distance. And the green swoosh? Very cool. Save at least one for your golf ball collection. [caption id="" align="alignright" width="353" caption="Nike Limited Edition Green & Yellow Method Concept Putter"][/caption] Finally, Nike will also offer the Limited Edition Green & Yellow Method Concept Putter. If you need a reason beyond making putts like a pro to buy a putter, then check out the green blade and contrasting yellow body. Of course, this isn’t just a showpiece putter, as it has the same technologically advanced design for which Nike is known, such as the lightweight aluminum face and high-mass steel body that combines for a perfectly-positioned center of gravity. With the Limited Edition Method Concept, Nike offers a putter that delivers the technology to make more putts in a package almost too pretty to use. Each of these Nike, exclusively-designed, Limited Edition items will be available in limited quantities beginning Monday, April 2, 2012. Every Masters is special. Make this year’s version your special event with the addition of the Nike Limited Edition Lunar Control Golf Shoes, 20XI Green Swoosh Golf Balls and Green & Yellow Method Concept Putter. Prilosec
