Callaway unveils 2021 ERC Soft golf ball

Published

on

Callaway Golf has unveiled its new 2021 ERC Soft golf ball, billed by the company as their longest ball with soft feel.

The new ERC Soft ball from Callaway features a high energy core engineered to increase ball speed and distance through the bag while also working with the high-speed mantle to boost resilience and speed.

The ERC Soft features a new Hybrid Cover with a Paraloid Impact Modifier made by Dow Chemical. This high performance, multi-material construction is designed to promote high launch and low spin for added distance and maximum feel in a durable offering.

The new hybrid cover also aims to offer ultimate control around the green, with the Paraloid Impact Modifier allowing Callaway to construct a cover offering both speed and spin.

In addition, the 2021 ERC Soft’s high-speed mantle is designed to create more efficient energy transfer between the layers for more ball speed, while providing more wedge spin around the green.

The advanced alignment From Triple Track Technology on Callaway’s ERC Soft ball aims to help golfers focus and improve their alignment on the greens.

The 2021 ERC Soft golf ball hits retail on February 25, 2021, and is priced at $34.99 per dozen.

‘How many GolfWRXers have a backup bag?’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing backup bags. WRXer ‘thibeedough’ kicks off the thread saying:

“Interested to see how many of us have a backup bag of clubs. Doesn’t have to be a full set, maybe some extras that you swap out depending on the course, or just old clubs you have laying around the garage?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts on the validity of having a backup bag and what clubs they have in reserve.

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.

  • GLF4EVR: “Have two sets of irons & another set of iron heads. Two other drivers, two sets of the wedges I use, & one putter. The 3 wood is the only club that I do not another one of lying around anywhere. One guy I play with every weekend has an old putter. Three others that we try to get out together when we can have at least one of my old clubs.”
  • 14max: “My back up bag has some older clubs I’m fond of (Hawk Eye 5 wood, ISI-S irons, Eye2 wedge), and I swap out driver and putter with my main bag. I also have a set of Warbird woods that I’ll switch out with the 5 wood and longest iron as well…”
  • NDGolfer13: “I don’t have a backup bag per se, but I do have a travel set up that I will either travel with or ship when I’m going to be somewhere where I can play.”

Valspar Championship Tour Truck Report: DJ sticking with new flatstick, Kisner ditches the armlock

Published

on

With little margin for error at the Copperhead Course this week, it’s not surprising to see few major changes from the participants in this edition of the Valspar Championship.

That said, we’re still spotting plenty of interesting things in Florida, including the apparent end of Kevin Kisner’s armlock experiment and Dustin Johnson sticking with a surprise putter switch he made in the final round of the RBC Heritage.

Remember, you can check out all our photos from the Valspar here!

Titleist

Viktor Hovland is putting a 2021 Pro V1 in play after using it last week at the Zurich Classic. According to Titleist, he’s seeing higher ball speed with the driver and more control into the green.

Denny McCarthy is testing a TSi2 driver (10 degrees). He’s seeing more speed and better spin control.

Roger Sloan is testing a U500 4-iron, which he finds easy to launch and is able to work it both ways.

Byeong-Hun An put a Fujikura Motore X F3 6 X in his TSi3 driver.

Staffer Jimmy Walker tested a L.A.B. Blade putter before returning to this Scotty Cameron.

Callaway

Kevin Kisner moved from the armlock to a “very stable and consistent” 2-Ball Ten putter with a Red Stroke Lab double-bend shaft. SuperStroke Traxion 2.0 Tour grip. 34.25 inches. 3.5 degrees of loft.

Grayson Murray is testing a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 9 X in a Mavrik Sub Zero 7-wood.

New to us since we last saw him, Phil Mickelson is going with a Callaway PM Grind ’19 “Raw” (52, 58, 64) setup.  

TaylorMade

After putting it into play for the final round of the RBC Heritage, it looks like Dustin Johnson is sticking with a new TaylorMade Brandon 1 prototype putter and LA golf graphite putter shaft. If this putter seems familiar, it’s because we saw Tommy Fleetwood put something very similar into play a couple of weeks ago too (pictured below in photo from TaylorMade).

Ping

Andrew Putnam is testing a Fujikura Ventus Red 6 X shaft in his driver.

Scottie Scheffler (not a staffer) is decreasing loft in his Ping G425 LST driver.

PXG

James Hahn tested a Cobra RadSpeed driver with a prototype Aldila shaft.

SEG

Scott PUREd KBS C-Taper 125 Custom Black shafts for Gary Woodland and Project X 6.5 shafts for Jordan Spieth (3-PW, 6.0 in wedges).

Free agents/others

Justin Rose was spotted testing a number of grips.

Chris Kirk is testing a Cobra RadSpeed driver with a Mitsubishi 1K shaft.

Both Brendon Todd and Rory Sabbatini are testing Mitsubishi MMT iron shafts.

William McGirt is testing a Graphite Design Tour AD DI HB 95 S shaft in a Callaway Apex Hybrid.
