Phil Mickelson spotted with new Callaway driver (and 178 mph ball speed) in holiday video



At GolfWRX, we have a keen eye for things “out of the ordinary,” and in a recent video shared to both Instagram and Twitter, Phil Mickelson is spotted not only hitting his recently internet famous “bombs”—while admitting to “needing more speed”—(eye roll from every regular golfer trying to break the 140 mph mark when it comes to ball speed) but…

…we also get a glimpse of what looks to be the next yet-to-be-named driver from Callaway in the video.

Check it out below.

    Phil advertising a Driver? – now this is funny, he wouldn’t hit a fairway that was 500 yards wide regardless of ball speed

    Yet another driver Phil will claim is the answer and best ever (same thing he has said about the last 6 or 7) will have one or two good rounds and then be back to hitting it all over the place. Come on people if Callaway cannot make a driver Phil can keep in play what are the chances they make one the 15 handicapper is going to keep in play?

    Old man Mick needs accuracy, not faster club head speed.

    Have to say I’m more interested to find out if they are replacing the Apex Irons line-up in 2021. I know they’ve got the Apex MB and CB’s coming but I’d like to know if there’s more coming to the PGA show next month.

      Yes Apex pro’s, Apex forged and Apex “DCB” I think is what I saw – all new for ’21

    I fully expect to see Phil in an Autoflex shaft this year.

      The autoflex has been shown to be overrated.
