Spotted: Callaway GBB Epic Sub Zero “PM440” hits USGA conforming list

Published

on

Callaway’s GBB Epic Sub Zero driver — the more forgiving, yet deeper-faced option in the GBB Epic driver series — has made waves on professional golf Tours, and it also garnered the most votes in GolfWRX’s Members Choice: The Best Driver of 2017. The retail models measure 460cc, but there’s another 440cc version floating around on Tour in the bag of Alex Noren.

Now, there’s yet another GBB Epic Sub Zero model in existence; a “GBB Epic Sub Zero PM440” is listed on the USGA Conforming Clubs list.20160753

What could a left-handed Callaway driver named “PM” possibly mean? We’ll go out on a limb and guess that Callaway has made a GBB Epic Sub Zero 440 driver especially for Phil Mickelson, but we will update this story when Callaway representatives provide further insight on the “PM440.”

Update: “It’s a left-handed 440cc version of Phil’s driver,” said a Callaway representative. “It’s a one-off Tour prototype that they built of his driver for him, instead of the standard 460cc head.”

    I wish they would come to market with that same black/ silver or black/grey color scheme versus the green/ black scheme.

    Personally I lprefer a smaller head like a SLDR/M1 430/440, 917 D3.

    But I really wish a there was a pic from the address point of view, because that’s really a huge factor of importance I think.

      I like the EPIC Sub-Zero much better than the Taylormade M1 which I thought was a pretty good driver. So for me and many others it is more epic than fail….

PXG introduces high-MOI, adjustable Operator putter

Published

on

Joining the Drone and Gunboat on the high-MOI mallet-style putter end of the spectrum, PXG is launching its highest MOI putter to date: the Operator.

With a maximum head mass of 400 grams, depending on weight adjustments, the Operator features a soft billet-milled 304 stainless steel face and a body made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum.

PXG made the Operator for those seeking advanced customization and maximum forgiveness. Multiple sole weights, available in increments of 2.5g, 5g, 10g, 15g and 20g, can be used to adjust the overall head mass.

Regarding the name: “Operator” is the specific term for Delta’s operational personnel, although in recent years it has become a term for almost all U.S. military special forces.

The putter is available in three models.

Operator

The double-bend hosel style creates a full shaft of offset with a face-balanced hang angle. Built for players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.

Operator H

The hosel neck is heel-shafted with a half shaft of offset and mid toe-down hang angle. Built for players with more face rotation in their stroke.

Operator P

The plumber’s neck shaft creates a full shaft of offset with a slightly toe-down hang angle. Built for players with a moderate amount of face rotation in their stroke.

All Operator models feature PXG’s proprietary TPE honeycomb sole insert and a TPE insert behind the face to dampen vibrations and enhance feel.

$450 retail.
