Coltsaerts should just be given a black bag in the shape of a bomb with a big red X as the side graphic!

Haha definitely! He would have a ton of patches already if the Euro guys were in on this.

Why not patches for different things?  Eagles, aces, a big bomb patch for 400+, etc?

I think its a fun idea . . . wouldn't be surprised to see that patch on Callaway hats in the retail market if they get some buzz from this.

Sign a bunch of bombers, come up with this strategy. Ooooohhhh Callaway is learning they are....

though i demand they all get pictures of drains put on their bag for each put over 25 feet

That way the shorter hitters could be like "i only got 3 bombs, but i've got 32 drains"

probably should not say that in airports

if it requires a drive in the fairway, how are poor woodland or philly mick going to get any patches? ;-) J/K this sounds like a fun idea, and a smart way to get a little extra marketing effort out there; it does sound very much like the "17" and "heart" promotions, which may have seemed a little over the top, but certainly grabbed attention; 325 just ain't happening for me, but can i get say a firecracker patch for a 225-yarder if i really catch one?

Wish they would have given them to pre-orders.

stickers on pros golf bags and "new" clubs with the word "Hot" written on them is not my idea of getting better and better- sorry but they're in trouble with the consumer if you ask me.

They are chasing a company that just sold a billion clubs named Rocketballz..............and we're worried about "Hot" and some goofy patches on the pros bags?  Come on man, that's a little rough.  Cally just signed a whole mess of bombers and they are trying to capitalize on that.  I think its good marketing personally.

Stickers.

Phil, please don't put stickers on your bag.

What would Bobby Jones say?

"Please remove those bomb stickers before entering my golf course"

They guys who are killing this idea are too up tight.  This is just fun.  Nothing everything has to be so serious and golf is supposed to be fun.

When these guys travel as much as they do and make as much money as they do then little things like this make it fun.  Plus as someone said this is what a bunch of regular guys would talk about and do.  Nothing else.  This sounds like what I would have talked about/done when I was on my college basketball team.  We always had goofy games to keep it interesting.

It's not for everyone but nothing is.  If you don't like it fine but don't kill a company for a patch.  Give the clubs a shot.  This is not a marketing hype machine, just something fun.

Common Harry let the wrx clan have the XHot patch.  You would sell thousands more with the patch.


I've already stated it, but I LOVE this idea.  I've always been a fan of college football teams that do it as well.

Anything that brings FUN to the game is great idea in my mind and it seems like Callaway Golf is really embracing it in 2013.  I sincerely hope they are awarded for their efforts with great success on tour and more importantly retail.

Now my plea to Callaway (know you're reading)...

GET THESE TO MARKET!!!

Some how, some way... let people buy these.  I can't tell you how many you'll sell, how profitable, etc.  What I can tell you is that it will further engage your customer . Market it...

"Set your mark and drop an XHot bomb on it", #setyourmark, etc

Have your pro's set their mark.. competition amongst your staffers.  I can see Woodland... "My mark? 4 Bills only"    Love it!

You know what's going to happen... someone in China is going to be selling identical patches on ebay.  It's going to happen (order is probably already placed), so beat them to the market.

Sell indivdually or bulk on your site.. heck even do it pre-order for now.  I'll be your first bulk purchase :)  I'll set my own long drive distance mark and everytime I get it in a round, I'll add my own patch.

She's sitting here waiting for her new Callaway clubs and blank ready for some patches!

I like it, fun idea. Goes nicely with all of the long hitters they've added to their staff. Callaway should give one or two with each X Hot driver they sell.

However, looking at Two Gloves' bag, at the third tournament of the year, I think 325 yards to earn a patch might be little low :lol: His bag is already covered up pretty good.

Yup that's why their own #setyourmark would work great, then incorporate into print/tv ads.  

Maybe on their bags.... Gaines could have #setyourmark350 and woodland #setyourmark4bills

Would be great!
