Mickelson using Callaway GBB Epic driver, Sub Zero fairway wood at CareerBuilder

Published

on

Phil Mickelson made the switch to Callaway’s new GBB Epic driver and GBB Epic Sub Zero fairway wood at the CareerBuilder Challenge, his first PGA Tour start in 2017 after two sports hernia surgeries this fall.

Driver: GBB Epic driver (9 degrees)
Shaft: True Temper Project X HZRDUS T1100 (6.5 flex, 65 grams)

3 Wood: GBB Epic Sub Zero fairway wood (15 degrees)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Fubuki J 70X

“In the last three months, I haven’t been able to do much,” Mickelson said, “but the last two weeks I’ve been able to work out, been practicing for a week, game is rusty, but body feels good.”

Because of his limited practice time, Mickelson said he has not changed his other golf equipment. He said he decided to switch the new driver because “the ball speed was so much quicker.”

Tested: GolfWRXers Gain 11 Yards on Average with Callaway Epic Drivers. 

In 2016, Mickelson primarily used Callaway’s Big Bertha Alpha 816 DBD and XR ’16 Sub Zero drivers, although he switched to the company’s Great Big Bertha driver at the Safeway Open in October in route to a T8 finish, his last tournament on the PGA Tour. The Great Big Bertha is the direct predecessor of the GBB Epic driver.

Mickelson shot 4-under par in Round 1 and is tied for 25th, four shots behind leader Dominic Bozzelli. He is a two-time winner of the event, and finished T3 last year at the CareerBuilder Classic.

    Did anyone expect Phil to say his new Epics stink? If a thrift store paid Phil millions to tout old Northwestern clubs, he’d say they were the best on the planet.

    And I don’t blame him.

    Awesome to see but you know they are GOOD if Phil keeps them in bag throughout the season…

    My goodness gracious what a surprise. Callaway Staff Professional Brand Ambassador Spokesmodel Phil Mickelson is using Callaway’s newest retail offering.

    Awright, I admit I should not be so sarcastic. Especially since, if I were an equipment manufacturer, Phil Mickelson is one of the very first guys I’d want to sign, because he is just about the best in the business, at taking care of business. And I certainly don’t dislike anything about Callaway. I’d be happy to consider buying Callaway equipment, right now.

    I just have no confidence whatsoever in equipment endorsements, when those endorsements are purchased for millions of dollars.

    Tell me what is in the bags of the players at the U.S Mid-Amateur.
