Not sure if there is a topic on this yet, but I heard that callaway is planning on giving its tour staff who use the x-hot driver a patch for on their equipment/bag for every drive they hit over 325 yards. What does everyone think about this? It's a black bomb with a fuse and an X on it. I saw it on twitter. Seems interesting

I imagine the players couldn't care less about those things.  Only for the TV audience.

I think it is something cool and different in the golf world. It is very similar to college football and how they get stickers on their helmet for big plays. I don't think the staff pros are going to risk their score to try and add another patch, but it will be cool to see a lot of bags with those bombs all over them!

Check out Two Gloves' bag...they look ridiculous.  I think they should leave them to the Buckeyes and HS football helmets.  There's also bombs that say 4bills for the 400 yd drives.

Discussed in the #callywrx thread, but deserves its own thread.

I think they're fun, although with the distance guys hit the ball nowadays, the bag will be covered halfway through the season. I think it might be better to have a new bomb each week or something, with a number on it showing how many 325 yard drives one has hit to date

I like them!  Would love to get a fitted Callaway Hat with it on there or maybe a Bag Tag or a couple for my bag!  Certainly don't think it would look great in bunches like that on a non-staff bag.

Thanks for the link. This may be a better idea.

I'll just jump in because I think this thing is awesome (as you would expect I would, I guess). This started back in October when we were sitting around one night after a commercial shoot. Luke List, Gary Woodland, and Adam Hadwin and our team were just shooting the breeze and the players started talking about wanting to do something that brought a competitive, fun thing to the Tour staff that they could talk about with each other every week. So we were just kind of laughing about that and throwing out outrageous things like recurring bets and championship belts and Tour De France jerseys for our money leader (which, by the way, the Tour just announced they are doing!). Anyway, someone, and I honestly cant't remember, said something about keeping track of all of the great "plays" the guys had, kind of like they do in football with the helmet decals. It was sort of a way to unify the #teamcallaway idea. Anyway, we landed on this Xbomb patch idea for golf bags. And the guys and the rest of our staff loved the idea. So we did it. Nothing more than that. May not be for everyone, but that's okay. Not everything we do is going to be test marketed and carefully planned out, obviously. I will say that the Tour guys love it, the media are loving it, and our customers are loving it. So I'm hoping that golfers enjoy it too and accept it in the spirt in which we are doing it.

I was about to post that this seemed like a hackey bit, but Harry, your explanation(once again) has me changing my opinion. Sounds like a nice off the cuff idea for the tour fellas to have a little fun.
Kudos to you guys for doing something different and not plastering Hearts and "17"'s all over their accessories.

Good background. But I think it was really to justify a wild night at the bar which resulted in a drunken bet and mysterious appearance of an XHotBomb tattoo on one of the Callaway staff....

This is why I can't wait until I can practice weekly and get my groove back so that I can try our the new equipment from Callaway, especially the xhot and driving irons. Callaway is taking the road less traveled in golf and making it seem like once again they are out to make an appeal to the average golfer which they seemed to have lost over the past years. I for one think that patches are a nice touch in an effort to make the #teamcallaway pros, as well as Callaway Golf, more personable. I believe Harry's reason for the patches because it actually seems like what a group of guys would do, amongst friends, just a way to get one over on another. Another member posted that it seems like College football and yes I agree but how big of a money maker is college football and collegiate merchandise. Guys are already asking for a patch or a way to get a patch and its only the second week of the 2013 season.
