TOUR REPORT: Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines

Closer look at Mav McNealy's Proto Apex MB V4

It was a #homegame at Torrey Pines this week for the Farmers Insurance Open. With the very popular (amongst players and reps) Wednesday start, players were on site Sunday afternoon to get ready, which meant the truck was open for business. In addition, it was also a week where we had inside-the-ropes access to video and take photos. Typically we are only allowed to collect assets on the driving range, putting green and chipping green. With the handcuffs off, we amassed a ton of content like…

and much, much more…

On site, we had Sports Marketing manager Jacob Davidson, Tour Manager Joe Toulon, Performance Reps Johnny Thompson and Kellen Watson, Odysseys Cody Hale and Eric Stubben, and Tour Tech Simon Wood. 

Let’s start with the numbers:

Total Callaway Drivers in Play: 35
Total Paradym: 23
Non-Staff Paradym in Play: 9
Staff Conversion: 75% 

Most used Paradym model: Triple Diamond 20 Total

Enjoy the Gallery/Report…

Mav McNealy, who has been in a Mavrik 4 wood for some time, tested some new Paradym TD Fairways this week, and both went into play
Ventus Black 10X….my word.
Xander did the same and put the 3-wood in play. The only change was going into Kai’li Blue instead of white for a bit more spin. The extra loft and softer shaft give Xander the option to hit a high draw (with spin).
Xander will test this next week, my hunch is the UW will stay in the bag, and that part of his bag is maximized. He LOVES his UW…so does his Caddy, Austin Kaiser.
X-man also has a fresh set of TCB raws headed home with him on Saturday.
Kelly Kraft bought these Legacy Black Forged CBs (almost ten years old) on eBay for $500 brand new.
After some shaft testing over the weekend, he put the PX IO 6.0’s in. The reason was the extra launch and spin 4-6 and the ability to keep the ball down 7-P
We discovered a new COG. The Face progression COG (left) positions the leading edge in different spots to dial in start lines. How it actually works will take 500 words to explain, but i’ll get to it at some point.
Cody Hale is our new Odyssey putting rep taking Joe Toulon’s spot (New TOUR Manager). He’s been amazing thus far. Welcome, Cody!!
Will Gordon put the Paradym Standard (15@12.6, 43 EOG, D3.5) in the bag, and he absolutely smashes this thing. 10 launch, 173 ball speed, 3300 spin.

LPGA News

After a SOLID start at the TOC in Orlando, I wanted to get some insight into Yuka Saso’s Paradym set-up. I caught up with Callaway Sr. MGR of Sports Marketing Bjoern Kreutzer, and this is what he had to share…

  • She LOVES the sound and feel of Paradym; it was the first reaction she had at testing.
  • Heel misses specifically are much better vs. Rogue ST, lower spinning (2500-2800 vs. 2700-3000)
  • She went up in loft about 0.5 (8.5 to 9) degrees vs. Rogue ST, as the Paradym TD is a little lower spinning.
  • She uses a prototype shaft made by “Seven Dreamers” @ 45.5” EOG, D1, 9g F 2g B, 2g lead tape in the heel.

As of Friday night Rahm is two back with 18 holes to play…3peat?

Have a great weekend:)
