Callaway LPGA staffer Georgia Hall just took home her second career LPGA Tour win. Here’s a look at the clubs in her winning bag:
Georgia Hall WITB – Portland Classic
- GBB Epic Driver (9*) – Fuji Speeder Evolution Shaft
- Epic Flash Fairway Wood (15*) – Fuji Speeder Evolution Shaft
- MAVRIK Hybrid (18*) – Graphite Design Tour AD Shaft
- Apex 19 (4-iron) – Nippon NS Pro 950 Shaft
- Apex Pro 19 (5-PW) – Nippon NS Pro 950 Shafts
- JAWS MD5 Wedges (50*, 54*, 60*) – Nippon NS Pro 950 Shafts
- Odyssey Stroke Lab #2 Double Wide Putter
Georgia hit over 83% of fairways for the week and over 74% of greens on the way to her win. She also used her JAWS MD5 Wedges to make some key saves down the stretch and in the sudden death playoff where she closed out the victory, just moments after Jim Furyk won on the Champions Tour. Callaway continues to be the #1 Driver Brand on the LPGA Tour and Hall’s win comes a week after Callaway comfortably won the driver count and Odyssey dominated the putter count at the ANA Inspiration.
Another Outstanding Week For Odyssey
Odyssey won yet another major putter count this week at the U.S. Open, and we’ve now been the #1 Putter at EVERY major across the PGA, LPGA and Champions Tours in 2020. We were the #1 Putter at every major in 2019 too, and we continue to be the #1 Putter Brand on every major Tour in 2020. Odyssey also took home two wins today with Hall’s victory in Portland and Jim Furyk’s win with a Versa #1 White Putter. Odyssey leads all putter brands in worldwide wins this year as well.
ICYMI: Xander Adds Another Great U.S. Finish
In case you missed it, Callaway staffer Xander Schauffele added to his strong run in major championships after posting a top-5 finish at the U.S. Open. More specifically, he’s now finished T6 or better in all four of the U.S. Opens that he’s competed in during his young career. He’s the first player to do that since Bobby Jones! Here’s a look at some of the key equipment in his bag:
Xander is using his trusted MAVRIK Sub Zero Driver, which has been in his bag since the 2019 Presidents Cup. His driver features our A.I. designed Flash Face SS20 that’s engineered to promote fast ball speeds across a more expansive area in each model and loft. It also delivers a great combination of low spin & high MOI, and features two interchangeable weights to fine tune trajectory. He’s using a Graphite Design Tour AD BB 7X Shaft.
This week, Callaway Tour Reps added half a degree of loft in Xander’s driver to promote higher launch off the tee. They made this adjustment to help Schauffele hit more fairways on the tight, fast Winged Foot layout, where it’s easy for drives to run out through the fairway.
Xander continues to use his Apex Pro 19 Irons (4-PW), which have been in the bag for his victories at the WGC-HSBC Champions and the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Apex Pro 19 is a forged Tour performance iron that provides extremely soft feel from a 1025 mild carbon body and our proprietary urethane microspheres.
Our 360 Face Cup employs a shallow, flexible rim around the perimeter of the face that flexes and releases at impact to promote fast ball speed for consistent distance on center hits and off-center hits. In the short irons, the spin control VFT Face is designed for pinpoint shot-making in the scoring clubs.
The multi-material construction allows us to infuse on average 50 grams of Tungsten into each iron, so we can locate the CG in each iron with extraordinary precision while maintaining the flexibility of the Face Cup. This tungsten promotes optimal shot-making, ball flight, and control for scoring performance through the set. And Apex Pro 19 offers a classic look that the best players want to see with a straighter leading edge, higher toe, thin top line, and a smooth hosel transition.
His Golf Ball
Schauffele has been playing a 2020 Chrome Soft X Ball and during the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January, he said, “I’m using a new golf ball, Callaway’s new Chrome Soft. (I’m) not even trying to solicit it, it’s just (that) I feel more comfortable with it.” He’s also said, “The performance is unbelievable. The distance and performance are exactly what I want.” Our 2020 Chrome Soft X continues to be the #1 Callaway Ball on Tour.
