ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “I’ve only been doing this for a month, give me a little more time. Let me play this event and see what I can or can’t do and I will have a better understanding once I‘m at game speed.”

BRAIN TEASER: Last December this former player and world #1 said Tiger Woods should consider quitting. Who was it?

SEEING RED! There was a time in golf when it was littered with early adopters. People that HAD to be the first to put something in play before anyone else did. epicredCost was never an issue; it was more a point of pride. Many times it was implied that it was technological, if not psychological advantage, especially with a new driver in the bag. There are still early adopters around today but not as many as there once was. The reasons are varied; however seeing something new in someone’s bag still generates plenty of attention!

With the holiday season now upon us, Callaway is getting into the spirit of things. The company has a limited edition offering, it's our first driver offered through the Callaway Customs-Tour limited program, called the Callaway Customs Tour Limited Epic Red Driver. Red is considered the color of fire, blood and associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is also considered a very emotionally intense hue. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. Callaway wants golfers to associate red beyond Tiger Woods choice of Sunday attire

The Epic Red, which we’ll call it, features a red-dye clear triaxial carbon crown, a premium Project X HZRDUS Red Shaft and a red leather headcover. It has all the technologies as the GBB Epic (including Jailbreak Technology), which Callaway said, is the #1 selling driver in the US in 2017.

The Epic Red is only available for right-handed players in lofts of 9*, 10.5. It is available online at callawaygolf.com (and very limited at retail). For those wondering about the cost, it’s priced at $599.99. Happy Holidays to the person who has everything or the early adopters still out there!

PAIN FREE! Early indications are that Woods is in a much better spot than when he returned a year ago in the Bahamas. According to those who played with him in recent weeks, his swing looks faster and more fluid, and Woods appears to be happy and healthy. “I didn’t realize how bad my back had become and how much I was flinching and just how slow I was,” he said. “I didn’t realize it because it’s been a slow, degrading process. I thought I had some speed, thought I was playing halfway decent, shot some good scores, but now I’ve looked back on it and man, I didn’t even have much at all.” READ MORE>>>

ANSWERS: “I’ve only been doing this for a month, give me a little more time. Let me play this event and see what I can or can’t do and I will have a better understanding once I‘m at game speed.”--Tiger Woods in advance of the 2017 Hero Challenge.

Greg Norman said Tiger Woods should consider retiring. "Coming from the experience of having many surgeries myself and trying to comeback to perform at the level you were prior, it’s a mountainous task - one where your mind wills and tries to force your body to deliver, but cannot.”
