Spotted: FootJoy DNA Helix Golf Shoes

Published

on

Earlier this week at the Wells Fargo Championship, we photographed Adam Scott wearing a yet-to-be-announced pair of FootJoy golf shoes on the course. They appear to be FootJoy’s new DNA Helix golf shoes, and are rumored to hitting stores in August.

According to our boots on the ground, Max Homa was also wearing the new shoes.

Insight from GolfWRX Members

Hawkeye: New version of DNA with more stable platform. Named DNA Helix and should be available around August 1.

parrnj: They look good, definitely more modern looking coming from FJ.

sampga1976: Third version of the DNA named “Helix.” Wider platform sole making the shoe much more stable than both of its predecessors. Additional upgrades also including an integrated tongue design that will always stay centered and the bicycle toe stitching on the toe is back. FJ is hoping to see their staffers move back into this shoe and have their flagship offering be No. 1.

kush614: Richy Werenski posted this photo on twitter today. If you zoom in on the top of the box it lists all the improvements. Wider, lighter, and lower. Can’t wait for these!!

    I hope the quality is better. I recently got a pair of Pro SL’s and am disappointed with some of the stitching and padding. Not normal FJ quality. I ordered online from TGW and the problems weren’t bad enough to go through the hassle of sending them back but I’m not very happy considering how much they cost.

      There’s a 90 day guarantee on quality. Why wouldn’t you return it? You may have just gotten the tune of the litter. I love my Pro SLs so much I bought every color. Never had a single issue with any.

    I’d love to have a pair of Pro S/L with the foam cushion in the inside back available in the original DNA’s made for Adam Scott

    Nice move. The second DNAs where absolutely horrible. Whoever made that change needs to be takin out back and beaten with Tigers cane.

      That was actually tour player input that inspired the change on the 2.0. They wanted a cleaner look when looking down at address. Really excited for these new DNA! Much more stable platform, comfortable shoe but the lack of stability on side hill lies especially made me not like the first two versions as much. Excited for the new ones!

        You say it was Tour player input, yet all but maybe 2 players who had worn the original DNA’s continued wearing them when the 2.0’s were released. Sounds like BS to me. The only thing that would’ve made a difference at address would’ve been the toe. They changed that for the 2.0 but then they added that ridiculous stripe down the side, which is no doubt the reason so many players stopped wearing them. Aside from the toe stitching, which I wasn’t a fan of, the original design was perfect: modern yet classic. Had the clean all-white look with just a splash of color on the heal. The stripe on the side of the 2.0 killed any chance of Tour pros wearing them. Glad they finally realized the error of their ways but I think if they stuck with the design of the original but ditched the “bicycle” toe stitching it’d be absolutely perfect.

Callaway announces huge all-stock merger deal with Topgolf

Published

on

Callaway Golf has announced an all-stock merger agreement with TopGolf with the number of shares to be issued based upon an implied equity value of Topgolf of approximately $2 billion – including the 14% already owned by Callaway.

Callaway first invested in the golf entertainment company, Topgolf, back in 2006 entering an exclusive golf partnership agreement at all Topgolf venues.

 

On the new deal expected to be completed in early 2021, Chip Brewer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Callaway said that the all-stock merger between the two can create “an unrivaled golf and entertainment business”.

“Together, Callaway and Topgolf create an unrivaled golf and entertainment business. This combination unites proven leaders with a shared passion for delivering exceptional golf experiences for all from elite touring professionals to new and aspiring entrants to the game. We’ve long seen the value in Topgolf and we are confident that together, we can create a larger, higher growth, technology-enabled global golf and entertainment leader.”

Under the terms of the merger agreement, Callaway will issue approximately 90 million shares of its common stock to the shareholders of Topgolf, excluding Callaway, which currently holds approximately 14% of Topgolf’s outstanding shares. Upon completion of the merger, Callaway shareholders will own approximately 51.5%, and Topgolf shareholders (excluding Callaway) will own about 48.5% of the combined company on a fully diluted basis.

Topgolf’s revenue for 2019 was approximately $1.1 billion, and the company currently has 63 locations worldwide, including 58 in the U.S., and has more than 23 million customers. Find out all about Topgolf here.

What irons are left-handers playing? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our lefty members have been dishing on the irons currently in their bag. WRXer ‘1221’ is in the market for a new set and wants to see what other left-handers have been finding success with, and our members have been sharing their clubs 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.

  • dclccoritti: “Titleist…all blades. Love the look of the new TM P7-CB’s.”
  • LeftyMatt24: “I’m in T100s bent weak. They are an awesome middle ground between blades and players. Titleist offers their full line in left and right-handed. The new SEL from Mizuno is a good option. Can’t go wrong with Srixon z785 either.”
  • The_Champ: “Ping Blueprint.”
  • Llefty: “Srixon 585 3-PW and Bridgestone JGR Tour B HF2 5-AW.”
