Callaway signs Matteo Manassero

Published

on

Callaway Golf has signed four-time European Tour winner Matteo Manassero to its Tour Staff.

Manassero, 20, is the 43rd-ranked golfer in the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR). He made himself known to the golf world as a 16-year-old at the 2009 British Open, where he tied for 13th and finished as the low amatuer. He has recorded a win on the European Tour every year since, winning the Castelló Masters Costa Azahar in 2010, the Maybank Malaysian Open in 2011, the Barclays Singapore Open in 2012 and most impressively the BMW PGA Championship in May 2013. 

Manassero joins new signings Harris English (No. 53 in the OWGR) and Henrik Stenson (No. 3 in the OWGR) as the newest members of Callaway’s increasingly youthful Tour Staff.

A photo posted from Manassero’s Twitter account shows the golfer with Callaway’s Big Bertha Alpha driver, Big Bertha fairway wood, two X Hot hybrids, X Forged 2013 irons, X Forged wedges and an Odyssey Versa putter.

    Great signing for cally. Not the bomber type they went after last year, but definitely an elite player. Wish he’d play more overview in the states.

    A great signing for Callaway. Manassero is a great player and a true gent on the course. Best of luck to him with the new equipment.

    Maybe Tiger will get tired of playing the Nike, and want to sign with Callaway. Isn’t he the only one left who hasn’t?

    Another great Titleist stuff player going commercial. I guess Callaway wants to sell Big Berthas to more folks under 50. Not a bad set though.

    This guy could use women’s clubs from the 80s and still be better than most other pros. Should be an easy transition here with essentially the same looks and setup as he had with Titleist.

SIM Max vs SIM2 Max – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting the original SIM Max with the latest SIM2 Max driver. WRXer “Spaceman1976” is torn between the two and reaches out to fellow members saying

“If anyone can offer their experiences with both drivers, I would greatly appreciate your feedback. I do see more SIM2 drivers for sale on the board than SIM drivers.”

And WRXers have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Yoshimonster: “Very minor difference between them. Go with Max.”
  • philleeeep: “I thought there was a big difference in sound. Hard to explain, but I personally preferred the SIM Max.”
  • tleader: “Love my SIM Max. Very little (if any) difference to “upgrade” to the SIM2 Max if fitted correctly.”
  • Kale_m: “Sim2 sounds and feels softer. Still super hot but just a different sound and feel. I personally like it. Sim2 is more neutral flight to me. I am playing it at a lower loft and in the upright setting. Dead straight bombs. Sim was much more fade biased, even when in the upright setting.”
