Yeah, no problem. Thank you for having us. Before we get started on the product itself, because this is really something that's off the charts. Cool, yeah, tell us a little bit about your background how this whole thing got started because it's really taken off like gangbusters. Yeah, so you know we originated in the E Commerce world learning kind of selling products on Amazon a few years back and decided to make a try. But and you know it, all kind of started with or in buying a cutting mat off Amazon and just saying like hey, I know I can make this better, you know. And he had some ideas in his head. He you know was a high school golfer played competitively. And you know, putting was something that he only struggled with an wanted to get better. And there wasn't really anything out there that filled that void. So you know, we started with this low budget Amazon product that you know we started prototyping coming up. Designs and improvements and sourcing different materials, whether it be for the the base or the the map itself, concepting the kind of training lines that you see now, and you know, putting that all together until we got to a point where we were comfortable putting this product up for sale. And you know something we were excited about. So you know, just like anything that was kind of a passion project started with just, you know, two guys that like golf and you know wanted to see in an industry that they were passionate about and you know found an area that we thought we could do well with and and succeed so. You know, after that it was really. Yeah, we put up a crude Shopify site. I think we've you know, built it simple. Started reaching out really on Instagram to PGA Tour Pros and influencers. Just trying to get the product out there in front of as many eyeballs and people as possible. We were fortunate to get responses from, you know, some prominent PGA Tour pros that gave us their address and I think our first one was Smiley Kaughman, which. You know he's had a little bit of a tough go as of late, but you know, at the time he's, you know, super cool big following on Instagram. He's had it and gave us some positive feedback and then snowballed from there with with other names. But yeah, you know I I have to look at this long list. PGA Tour pros and influencers who are telling us like hey, this thing is great and I like it so. Yeah,

Today is a great day to join us as well because we have one of our longtime guests on the show. A wily veteran joins us every year this time, he's the president of Titleist clubs, Mr. Steve Pelisek. Peli, great to have you with us, man. Hey Tom, thanks for having me. Well, we hate that It's gotta be this way this year, you know, we normally do this at the PGA merchandise show. But I guess I guess everything we've done in the past year has been virtual anyway in it. Yes it has. We were. Wearing out Microsoft Teams and zoom in just. Like everybody else. Before we get into clubs, take us back about 10 months or so. When everything started, all this craziness hit. In the what you guys want to do 'cause it's been some it's been some weird time. Yeah, yeah it was. It still is. You know this is still an issue in especially in California and and I think one of the things I'm most proud about is is we worked really hard to true all of this. Yeah, we're trying to run a business, but we're also first and foremost trying to keep people safe and our priorities all along has been the health and safety of. The of the team and. And then the quality of what would we continue to produce and and then productivity? But yeah, when when the governor issued that first stay at home order back in March, it was. It was. Use some unique is the first time we've ever faced anything like that, we close the factory. You know that half our folks work in the factory and the other half out here work on everything else. You know, sales and marketing in the R&D team and the planners and then. But the factory was closed for about two months and when we opened back up, we had you. Know this has started to pick up and they put you know considerably, and so that was a real challenge. You know? Trying to run the factory and keeping people safe and but we we worked through it made it very clear what the rules were and and and so again, I'm really, really proud of that part of the business and then the other part was just how seamlessly the team transition to working remotely. You know, we we we, I've told the story a couple times this week but we actually finished. The TSI driver design during the shutdown isn't working with the new material in that driver is called ATI 425 and. Limited use of it. And it's in the face, and face designs are pretty comp. Created and just highly iterative process and and obviously you want to get it as as as fast as you can and still conforming and all that stuff and so we weren't done and so had to finish it. We had to finish it remotely, which was really an amazing process and and. Hats off to RIT team. For getting everybody in April. But anyway, it was. It was really cool actually to see people come together like that and stay focused. And really it was some of our best work. Ironically, because the product came out fantastically well, so it was. It's been wild from the shut down to the surge in the second half. You know where where business was, you know was better than we thought. Just there's just. It's been an amazing and amazing here. Yeah, the silver lining you coming together when you physically can't come together and pull the whole thing off. That's that's amazing. When we talk with Steve, it's always new clubs. An odd number of years.

He is the 2020 United States Open champion, Mr Bryson DeChambeau. Bryson. Thanks so much for joining us. I don't know about you, but I like the way that sounds 2020 US Open champion. It has a good ring to it. Thank you. Appreciate You have me on so with a lot of fun. I want to talk about the incredible year last year, but question our listeners like to hear is we all fell in love with this game somehow, you know, take us back to you know what you did. Normally childhood somebody influenced. You talk about that briefly. Yeah, my dad was a Professional golfer for a little while until he had me and he turned back to being an amateur, but I got to the golf course with him all the time and grew up around the game. Played a bunch of other sports, but we're really drew me into the game was How individualized it was and how you know it was outdoors and then you know it was in nature and love looking at trees and seeing birds and wind and all that. I just loved nature in general and once I got a little bit older. I started watching golf films and watching Ben Hogan and I washed out part how hard he worked and you know my parents always talked to me about hard work and dedication and whatnot, and I found a similarity there and once I saw his golf swing I just wanted to swing it as good as him and that kind of gave me the golf bug and from then on I've always been trying to pursue. And you know, excellent as much as possible. Well, you mentioned Mr Hogan. Is that where the cap came from? You got it. That is exactly where it came from. So yeah, not too bad. And then once I got to college too, you know at SMU Payne Stewart obviously went there and so it kind of worked out in that fashion too. So it's a tribute to Hogan and paints it as well. Let's go back to about. This time last year, maybe a little past pricing 'cause you starting off a new season there. Everything is going well and then around the first round of The Players Championship our whole world comes unglued. I mean everything stops. We don't know what safe is if it's safe to go outside if it's safe to hit balls. Talk about what you did and what you were going through and those next few months, yeah? It was an interesting time for sure. I was very blessed to have a gym at home and I had a hitting simulator golf simulator in my house and I really thought, OK, how we're gonna be locked down for a substantial amount of time now. How can I get some really good practice in. And how can I do something with my body that will make a difference when I come back out and so from then on I started working out really hard every single day and getting a lot of strength and muscle size and mass. And over the course of, you know, a few months I was able to change the transform my body, you know. So once we got back out of quarantine and then Colonial started, it came back a different person with a whole new swing speed. Yeah, it was kind of like Bryson 2.0 and we saw something totally different. You win at rocket mortgage. And. It was on display talk about that that was that was awesome. Yeah, that was pretty cool moment for me. It definitely showed that I could change and transform my body and still win. Yeah, only only a few people in the course of this game of golf have done that and it was cool to see that and to be able to experience it.

Appreciate it. It's exciting times. Yeah, well I'm looking at the TaylorMade website right now and it sure looks nice. It’s the whole new family of products before you take us through it. Why don't you kind of start with what went into this? This is pretty Cool. Well, yeah, I mean we we, you know we're looking at things really pretty far out. Three to five years. And you know, within two years we start to solidify what we might do. And in this particular case what's unique about it is that we kind of had to to break it all apart, so to speak. Almost deconstruct. This July. However, to advance the performance and we started to look at things like hey, what about what material could be used for this part of the club and what process can we do to make that part? And ultimately you know of course our goal is to just make these products perform better, make the driver go longer, straighter, farther, more forgiving. The things that all golfers need. What but to do it in this case? What was unique is that we kind of had to again deconstruct it. Work on the little parts, and then sort of put it back together, which is what what really you know is in the SIM 2. You started with drivers. Let's go ahead and dive into there because there are three different drivers, but talk a little bit about what you guys did technology wise. Well, of course you know we don't. We build off of the things that we've done really well and SIM, of course radically changed the geometry. The shape of the driver to improve the aerodynamics and improve that forgiveness. And so we're getting we're getting more speed and getting more forgiveness on off center strikes. But with SIM 2 again, we we now what was. This titanium head with carbon on the Crown in this radical shape. We kind of took that apart. Took the back perimeter of the driver. Detached it so to Speak.

Dave Neville Podcast #332 – Callaway EPIC Speed
Worldwide Golf Shops INSIDER PODCAST #332! In this installment, we chat with the Senior Director, Brand & Product Management - Callaway Golf, Mr. Dave Neville! Dave talks Callaway's new EPIC Speed! Please Enjoy this INSIDER Podcast. Callaway Epic Speed Driver What happens when the undisputed ball speed leader goes out and creates a NEW formula for speed that doesn’t even seem possible? The answer is.... you get the new Epic Speed, our fastest driver ever. Epic Speed is built on a simple equation that’s going to make a profound impact on the category. A.I. + Jailbreak + our new Speed Frame = more distance for every player. The future of driver technology and performance is here, and it’s about to change the industry forever. Extraordinary Ball Speed From NEW Jailbreak A.I. Speed Frame: Epic ball speeds start with our new A.I. Jailbreak Speed Frame. Previous Jailbreak designs stiffened the body in the vertical direction. By applying Artificial Intelligence, the new design improves stability in the horizontal and torsional direction as well. The result is exceptional ball speeds all across the face.Fast Ball Speed From A.I. Designed Flash Face SS21 : Our advanced A.I.-designed Flash Face promotes fast ball speeds across a more expansive area. Each face and each head geometry are uniquely optimized in Epic, and the super strength titanium promotes optimal speed, forgiveness, and spin robustness. This all results in a greater emphasis on center and off-center ball speeds.Our Fastest Driver Head From A Cyclone Aero Shape: This advanced aerodynamic head construction promotes lower drag for higher head speed and ball speed. The taller ribbon and flatter crown are engineered for a new shape that can help golfers generate more speed from their swing.Increased Forgiveness From Advanced Composite Design: Our proprietary Triaxial carbon covers a larger portion of the crown, leading to weight savings of over 18 grams vs. a titanium crown. Callaway engineers have redistributed that saved weight to enhance forgiveness versus previous Mavrik designs. An additional Triaxial carbon toe patch adds draw bias while saving weight to promote a powerful shot shape.

We've been had a huge lockdown out here in California and we've been very fortunate to be healthy. But there's a lot of people who are struggling so you know our hearts go out to them. Callaway has bounced back. We had a really challenging year last year, but as you know, golf has been a sport that's been arrested for a lot of people to be able to get outside be with their family socially distance. And so we've been really supporting that and we've got some really nice momentum coming into this year. Yeah. Yeah, golf has been the silver lining in this cloud that we're in and getting outside playing distancing outdoors. But when we talk to you Dave, it's always something new and that's what's fun.

John K Solheim Podcast #330 – PING G425
Worldwide Golf Shops INSIDER PODCAST #330! In this installment, we chat with the President of PING Golf, Mr. John K Solheim! John talks PING's NEW G425 Family of Drivers, Fairways, Hybrids, and Irons! Please Enjoy this INSIDER Podcast. Ping G425 Iron Set In a departure from recent iron models, PING’s experts re-engineered the face of the G425 iron by employing a metal-wood-style, variable face thickness(VFT)design. This greatly increases flexing for measurable ball speed gains that launch shots higher and farther with the stopping power to hold greens – a rare result with most of today’s distance-minded irons. In the process of creating the new face design, they developed a more compact head that sets a new standard for forgiveness for an iron its size. While shorter heel-to-toe than the G410 model, it boasts a 3% higher MOI due to mass savings from the new face geometry that have been re-allocated to the toe and hosel weights, which expands the perimeter weighting and greatly tightens dispersion. Extensive finite element analysis was used to help develop a multi-material cavity badge that covers more of the face to damp undesirable frequencies and ensure a superb feel and pleasing sound. The G425 irons feature a performance-improving, water-repelling hydropearl chrome finish. The grooves in the PW, UW, SW and LW are precision-milled to ensure control and touch into and around the greens. Multi-material construction: Hyper 17-4 stainless steel body, 3-piece badge (aluminum, ABS material, damping tape) and tungsten toe/shaft weightsAvailable in 10 color codes/lie angles:(Gold/4°flat, Brown/3°flat, Orange/2°flat, Red/1°flat, Black/std, Blue/1°upright, Green/2°upright, White/3°upright, Silver/4°upright, Maroon 5°upright)Stock steel shaft: PING AWT 2.0 (R, S, X).

To achieve the new performance levels in the G425 Max, PING engineers combined key technologies from the G400 Max and G410 Plus. The resulting increase in MOI in the 460cc head comes mainly from a 26-gram tungsten movable weight, which is made possible by weight savings attributed to advancements in the driver’s dragonfly crown technology.

Enjoy this INSIDER Podcast PRODUCT FEATURES COBRA RAD Speed Driver features a compact shape (460cc) and forward-biased RADIAL WEIGHTING with front to back adjustability to deliver the fastest ball speeds, lowest spin, and the most workability of the three models. FORWARD-BIASED RADIAL WEIGHTINGThe RADSPEED driver frame features 28g positioned as forward as possible (16g of fixed weight and a 12g adjustable weight) to deliver ultra low spin and our fastest ball speeds. An additional 10 grams of weight positioned in the back (8g of fixed weight and a 2g adjustable weight) creates the perfect balance of front and back weighting for RAD speed & forgiveness. THIN-PLY CARBON WRAP CROWNThe Carbon Wrap Crown system features a new carbon fiber material that is 30% thinner which creates another 6 grams of discretionary weight that can be repositioned to optimize performance. T-BAR CHASSISA refined T-Bar Speed Chassis design is 7 grams lighter, giving us even more discretionary weight to position more mass forward within the frame to decrease spin and increase ball speed. CNC MILLED INFINITY FACE An infinity edge face design expands the milled area by 95%, increasing the zone of maximum ball speed. KING RADSPEED IRON SET W/ STEEL SHAFTS The RADSPEED irons represent a significant leap forward in golf innovation. A breakthrough in weighting technology is combined with the first application of 3D printing in golf club design, setting the bar for performance and technology higher than ever before. EXTREME HEEL AND TOE WEIGHTING 10g and 3g of mass is positioned on the toe and heel extremities to create the best combination of speed, low spin and stability for optimized performance. TUNED RAD WEIGHTING A 10g weight positioned low and in the toe area centers the CG and adds stability for more distance and forgiveness on off-center hits. FORGED PWRSHELL FACE A forged face insert is made of a thin 17-4 stainless steel, and is designed to increase flex in and around the Sweet Spot for faster ball speed and higher launch. 3D PRINTED MEDALLION 3D printing offers unlimited complexity in design, allowing us to produce an intricate lattice medallion structure that saves weight and fine-tunes feel.

It's that time of year we get to catch up with our good friend Chip Brewer out of Callaway Golf. Chip, great to talk with you. I wish we could do it in person like we normally do every year, but not now. I don't know when it'll be but hopefully will turn the corner soon. Chip Brewer: Tom is great to have the opportunity to talk to you, virtual as it might be and. Get a year kicked off, talking about golf and equipment and some good news stories. Tom Brassell: Let's hit that Arrow back button and we used to call it rewind on VCRs, but people don't know what the rewind button is anymore, but let's arrow back to, you know. Last March when everything kind of went sideways, I think the Big East Basketball tournament stopped at halftime and The Players Championship got around then. Where were you when all that was going on and just kind of take us through what was going on with you and with Callaway back then. Chip Brewer: Holy smokes, you know I can remember it was. To like it was yesterday, Tom and it was like a, you know from where I was sitting. It was like a little bit of a slow motion trainwreck. You know we are global company and we had something going on in China and then China was shutting down a little bit and. You know that was inconvenient and we were feeling bad for them. But you know, no big deal and then it spread to Europe and you know I was hearing from our businesses over there and. Uh, before you know it. Shutdowns here and they cancel the the second round of The Players Championship. The global lockdown and what just happened is what we were thinking about. And analysts are calling me at that point and they're like well. How long can you last with zero revenues and? Right O revenues. How the hell do I know how? How Long I can last with zero revenues. I never Never thought about that. You know we went into survival mode, be honest with you. We just didn't know where the bottom was when we're coming out of this, what it was, what it meant for our business, the world in general. Yeah, you know, Fast forward a few months and you know I'm proud of what the team did in terms of how we rallied around our business and our teams and various things we did to make sure Callaway survived and not only survive but thrive. And obviously, we're fortunate enough to be able to. Say we did that, you know. Towards the mid and late part of the year and. Likely getting a little bit of a CoVid dividend from it, and as we've got new entrants and everything else so holy smokes what a what? A turn around and come back for the game of golf and the industry. It's likely to be positive for you know, a long period of time and we're seeing. Interesting growth like we've never seen before, so. If somebody could have told me that in March or April 1st, I wouldn't believe them so it wouldn't have done any good at all, but. It might, it might have saved me some Gray hairs or or so. Tom Brassell: Chip, what did you learn or what did you find out about your team or yourself or your company during this crazy time that you may not have known or maybe what did it confirm that you knew about your company? Chip Brewer: Well,

The guest list this year will be second to none, once again, and it starts with our special guest today. Always great to catch up with our good friend TaylorMade Golf's David, Abeles. David, how are you my friend? David Abeles What a what? A crazy ride. This has been a rollercoaster Tom hasn't it? and yeah, it feels like we're still Dealing with it a bit here early in 2021, but I'm doing well. I appreciate having some time on The podcast is always and spending some time with all the fans of worldwide golf. So this this time of year is always an exciting one for me to have the opportunity to reengage with you and the team and share a few thoughts about golf and certainly TaylorMade. Tom Brassell Yeah, this is kind of our state of the Union. Let's turn the Clock back David. I mean, it was about what 10 months ago and Everything kind of hit. I think the Big East tournament got stopped at halftime and The Players Championship was going to take us back to what You were doing when all this happened and how it kind of started. David Abeles Yeah, you know, I'll even backtrack beyond ten months ago because it was March 13th or 14th on Friday when Jay Monahan and the PGA Tour suspended play and then ultimately canceled The Players Championship withstand really started to. Create what I call the lever pulls in golf all the different decisions that were being made around our great game sport at the professional level. At the amateur level, and certainly the businesses that's when things started to migrate, but we had had some level of awareness to a virus in China back at the end of last year. Had no idea Was coronavirus had no idea that it was epidemic of sorts at the time that could ultimately manifest itself or develop into a pandemic, but like many like many of us in this industry, we do some work with Asia based entities, some in China and we started to see A little bit of absenteeism and some of the facilities, and so we weren't sure what that was, so we paid very close attention to that.ˇSoˇweˇweˇgot a sense that something unusual was happening at the end of last year. Really. The beginning of this year and then once the media started to get engaged in the Public Health Committee, started to engage both nationally and internationally. We found out like everybody else That there was this epidemic happening in Asia, that ultimately has become coronavirus on a worldwide basis.ˇSoˇwe had a little bit of a notion that there may have been something unusual, although we really didn't know what that was. In our companies. One that I alwaysˇprioritizesˇhealth and safety and everything we do absolutely everything comes its people, customer health and safety. First that tailor made Soˇwe're very cognizant of it then then really to the Genesis of your question, Iˇactually duckedˇout with my family For a couple of days on a holiday inˇmid Marchˇand that's when the news started to break that this isˇseriousˇand we were obviously like every other company going to take this very seriously. And then The Players Championship was suspended. the NBA was suspended. I'm silvers and the NBA suspended the NBA season and then things you know started to ramp so Over the past ten months, there have been a series of actions and decisions that have had to be made on behalf of our sport On behalf of the business and certainly all the people involved, that has been a bit surreal to be honest with you,
