When I saw a few years back that the National Open would be held at THE Los Angeles Country Club, it’s a course I have played a few times over the past ten years. I have been eagerly anticipating how the Gil Hanse restoration would hold up against the best players in the world.
I was able to walk the front 9 with #rahmbo this AM, and my word is this golf course a masterpiece. I think it can potentially be one of the all-time greats in the rotation.
On site, we had a PACKED truck that included Head of R&D Tim Reed, Sports Marketing Manager Jacob Davidson, Peter Harrison, and Ian Garbutt from Callaway Europe, Mike Sposa (Callaway Next), Johnny Thompson, Dean Teykl, Kellen Watson, Simon Wood, and Greg Shaw: tour Manager Joe Toulon, Takashi Ishii (Japan) and the great Roger Cleveland.
There is not a ton of new stuff to speak of regarding gear changes….well that’s a lie; there is some new stuff on the truck that’ll spin your head around, but we can’t talk about that just yet.
It’s the U.S. Open!!

U.S Open bags this year are pretty on point.
Rahmbo had some new wedges delivered; AT went with a USA theme:)
Chris Kirk is looking for a bit more height and spin out of his 3-wood, so he had these Paradym Triple D’s built up to test. Height and spin will come in handy to hold these fairways AND the 260+ yard Par 3’s!!!
Candian Flusher Adam Svennson finally wore out the grooves on his 2018 MB’s and secured one of the last sets we have at Pro Tour.
Fran Molinari dropped off his sticks for a loft and lie check which was the hot ticket item most of the day.
This new Jaws wedge screams LSU and US Pride. #SamBurns
More tomorrow; going to be an insane week.
