Compare to a Titleist logo and a number below.

Or any other logo. Would not cover.

It's a Callaway prototype, old ball, or a new strange alignment aid

Did anybody catch Phil's comments on his driver this week at Pebble Beach. Wondering if he was struggling with the SubZero and went back to the 816 DBD? With the coverage this week it is hard to catch many swings from anybody.

I think he swapped to the DBD trying to hit it lower to run farther and quickly realized how good the subzero was treating him ....

This is from Spyglass on Thursday. Not sure what the line is for, but it's definitely a callaway.

Hopefully Callaway will make a production model of the Sub Zero! I love the clean top with the glossy finish. Would love to see one side by side with an 815/816 DBD.

I agree. The pics of Jason Gore's is, imo the best looking driver (not) on the market today. So very clean. I know it's a bigger head, but the last one that was that clean was the FT Optiforce 440.

What sort of screw up? Like an inappropriate logo?! Lol!

Is that conforming?

Why must these guys always play a prototype, and why do the prototypes always sound exactly what we would want in a golf ball but can't get?

I assume it was just a minor misprint, he had to sharpie over it to make it conforming.
Wall said that he would have the properly stamped ball in play next event.

Why would Phil need a 64 degree when he has a 60 (and can lay that open)?

Do you think it's because the greens are that fast and tucked in crazy, small positions, i.e. the landing area the size of the hood of a car?

Looks like Phil had a Fubuki J in his 3 wood today at the St Jude Classic.

I think he had a Fubuki K before the recent HZRDUS  (I've seen a Fubuki K with Fubuki J graphics, so who knows what shaft he's actually playing)
After a lot of testing my bag is pretty much set. I will be testing a few driver shafts soon, (Atmos Black 6X, T1100 65, etc) and I might test the 718 Ap2 irons. I just switched to Vokey SM6 wedges, I really like the SM6. I am currently testing an Evnroll ER5 against my Spider
