To be fair to Phil, the fairways at Pebble are at the same width as they will be for the US Open, and it was wet enough that a ball out of the rough would still hold.  He played it nearly perfectly for the conditions.  His strategy will have to change if it's dry and hard for the Open, but this was masterful play.

The Rogue is a legit driver

And still a current release despite the flash being released

Yeah Callaway is a bit confusing in that way. When the Rogue came out they said it wasn't an Epic replacement and they are saying the Flash isn't a Rogue reaplacement, so who knows...?

Itís two year cycles with overlapping families.

Epic - 17/18
Epic Flash - 19/20

Rogue - 18/19

He mentioned something to that effect during his post-round interview today. He bombed his driver as much as possible this week, but his strategy now had no bearing on how he will play at pebble this summer.

But as quick as they discounted epic when rogue released and then rogue before epic flash was even announced the avg Joe consumer things they are direct replacements and Callaway really isnít doing anything to sway that thought. They didnít even mention or show rogue in their tweets about Phil this weekor afysr the win.

Snedeker was hitting the original TM Superfast (the black one) for years.  I think Westwood took a few years to part with his G10 as well.  I can understand why a pro would be reluctant  to part with a club that he's successfully earning his livelihood with.

Yes. How dare pros keep
Older clubs in the bag. And how dare companies release more stuff to make money. Weird flex but Ok.

What is this crap?

This crap is pros playing what works for them. And calling him out on it is bizarre.

It’s two year cycles with overlapping families.

Epic - 17/18
Epic Flash - 19/20

Rogue - 18/19

But as quick as they discounted epic when rogue released and then rogue before epic flash was even announced the avg Joe consumer things they are direct replacements and Callaway really isn’t doing anything to sway that thought. They didn’t even mention or show rogue in their tweets about Phil this weekor afysr the win.

They also stop all marketing push and advertisement for Epic when Rogue was released, and Rogue when Flash was released.  I've had this same discussion with Callaway each launch.  It definitely doesn't help the consumer to know each isn't a replacement for the previous year's product line.
