Callaway Epic Flash, Epic Flash Sub Zero hit USGA conforming list

Published

on

Speculation has been rampant in the GolfWRX forums for month that Callaway’s 2019 driver offering will be called the Epic Flash. And it stands to reason that, like the Rogue, the company could offer a Sub Zero version of the driver.

Today, the Epic Flash and three versions of the Epic Flash Sub Zero hit the USGA’s conforming list. While we have no official information beyond the photos at present, we’re happy to present those for your speculative and viewing pleasure.

Epic Flash Sub Zero V3

All models feature a sliding rear weight, similar to what we saw in the original Epic. Not surprisingly, the company incorporates its ball-speed boosting Jailbreak Technology in all four models. As with the Callaway Rogue Sub Zero, the Flash Sub Zero looks to feature a forward-placed weight.

Also interesting to note, as Andrew Tursky pointed out on Twitter, the single, double (an no) diamonds graphics near the hosel. The drivers are also rumored to included a successor to X-Face VFT: “Flash Face” technology.

Let us know what you think about the photos, GolfWRX Members? Do you think more than two Sub Zero models will come to retail, or are some of the models Tour only?

    I hit a pile of the latest drivers yesterday and came to one clear conclusion. There’s no need for me to carry a driver. Sticking with my RBZ2 3-wood

    At a glance from these pictures can anyone see any differences from the 3 Sub Zero models shown? I just bought a Rogue sub zero model and am happy with it. No need for me to get the latest.

    Any official word on what they will retail for? I have heard it’s going to be around $599, but that was just speculation from my friend that works in the golf retail business.

Bettinardi signs Eddie Pepperell

Published

on

Eddie Pepperell is a singular quantity in to world of golf, so it’s not surprising that the Englishman has taken a unique route to becoming a Bettinardi staffer.

20 months ago, the two-time European Tour winner walked into Core Golf in Thame, Oxfordshire, and bought four putters, including a Bettinardi Studio Stock No. 8.

Pepperell, who jumped from No. 513 to No. 38 in the OWGR since putting the Bettinardi in play in April 2017, won’t have to pay for his putters any more. He joins the likes Francesco Molinari, Haotong Li, and Matt Kuchar as a Bettinardi staffer, the company announced the today.

“I’ve tried a number of putters and time and again, it’s the one model I keep coming back to.” said Eddie. “Positively I won’t have to buy a Bettinardi putter again, but having bought four putters from Core Golf I’m just hoping I haven’t put them of business as a result!” he added.

It was after Pepperell’s British Masters triumph in October that negotiations to bring him on board began in earnest.

“Once Eddie stayed ahead of a strong field at the British Masters to win his second Tour title of the year with a Bettinardi putter, we decided to reopen negotiations and we’re delighted with the outcome. It means that we now have another top 50 player in the world playing Bettinardi putters…” said Executive Vice President, Sam Bettinardi.

Here are the specs for his Studio Stock No. 8, courtesy of Bettinardi, which also provided the photos below of Pepperell’s putter (pre rust).

Material: Mild Carbon Steel
Finish: Mercury Gray PVD Finish
Face Milling: F.I.T. Face
Weight: 358 grams
Length: 33.25”
Lie: 71 degrees
Loft: 3 degrees
