The new Black PVD irons have been a highly requested item from golfers since the first black T100 irons were spotted on tour shortly after the release of the T-Series, in the bag of Sony Open winner Cameron Smith.

    They all look great on the rack, but after 6 round they look TERRIBLE

    It’s adorable how you guys think “capitalism” means “let’s make things that last long”.

    It’s like you’re all riding unicorns past leprechauns under rainbows of trickle-down economy.

    Aww…

    Why aren’t they using DBM finishing like Cobra or even Maltby? These look awful in a season.

      Be lucky to last a season and keep the looks. Basically half of NA can’t use these without the sandy turf destroying it. But they will more than happily sell you another set…

    These are black chrome, which wears fast and looks terrible.
    Callaway has done this with black Apex and ended up with lots of unhappy customers. The Raw Black like the Cobra MB finish would be much better.

    I wish they would have done this finish on the T100 also and not just the T100s and T200. Wonder if they will ever do that?

    Why not use the more durable finish that Ben Hogan clubs use?

      Exactly. If you’re going to charge $200 per club, you should at least use a decent finish.

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.

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.”
