Callaway Golf

Over recent years many of the top golf manufacturers have been ahead with their products because of aggressive marketing and spending millions of dollars in doing so but I personally believe that Callaway Golf has finally got back up there with some decent golf products, from their new Callaway drivers, great Callaway irons and their Callaway golf balls to suit all standards of golfers.

In this article I am only going to go over what I have personally purchased from the Callaway range but I will also cover some of the other products available, the first item I want to cover is the Callaway Fusion Driver, I never had a driver in my golf bag for over a decade because I just could not find one that I personally could feel comfortable with – I have now found the weapon of choice for me personally!

Callaway Fusion Driver

If you are looking for accuracy rather than distance then this is the club for you, but don’t think you have to sacrifice distance because of accuracy this Callaway Fusion Driver can combine the two, but accuracy was the reason that I bought the club in the first place, now that winter is out of the way I am now looking forward to using the driver in the warmer weather and firmer fairways. Callaway Golf - Fusion Driver

To keep it simple the Callaway Fusion Driver is shorter than your normal driver that you buy in either your local golf pro shop or golf retail outlet, golf manufacturers make shafts on drivers longer so it makes amateur golfers feel good about themselves because they can hit massive drives every now and again, when in fact, your average touring professional on the PGA TOUR and European Tour use drivers that are 43 inches long compared to your average driver in the market which is 45 inches long!

So if the world’s top touring professionals use shorter length drivers then surely that is an indication to me that they sacrifice distance for accuracy – even though they still bomb their drives 300 plus yards on average they would still prefer to be on the short grass than in trouble off of the fairway so that is why they choose to use shorter length drivers.

With the new Callaway Epic now in the market you might start seeing some real bargains on the Callaway Fusion Driver over the coming months, but if you cannot wait for a few months have a look on Amazon or eBay you might find some bargains on their websites, just search for Callaway Fusion Drivers:

Callaway SuperSoft Golf Ball

For many years I was a Titleist Pro V golf ball user until I was getting too much spin when I over cooked it with my draw, so I started giving the other Titleist golf balls a try, some were harder some were softer but I just wasn’t getting the all-round ball that I was after to suit my game until I tried out the Callaway Super Soft – what a great choice I must say, here are a few things that I like about the golf ball: Callaway Golf - SuperSoft Golf Ball

1. Great durability
2. Good distance ball
3. Brilliant soft feel around the greens
4. Superb for putting, my hatred for long putts is now in the past
5. Looks nice and fresh even after a round of golf

In the past I would use a Pro V for a round of golf and put it into my practice bag because they looked too marked and worn, these Callaway Super Soft golf balls stand up to my requirements for a round of golf even after visiting a bunker or two they just don’t scuff up like other golf balls I have used in the past – highly recommend trying them out even if it is a 3 ball sleeve to start off with.


Callaway Apex Irons

Even though I have not bought a set of the Callaway Apex Irons I have certainly tried and tested them out on the golf driving range, all I can say is that if you are looking to hit your irons long and straight these Apex Irons are certainly worth a look at – I personally didn’t go down the path of buying a set of Apex Irons because believe it or not but I was hitting them ‘Too Far’ compared to my current irons.

I am not saying that to ‘brag’ but I am now playing a few amateur senior championships and I need to know how far each one of my irons travels in distance on average, with the Apex irons I found every couple of balls you hit one of them would come off like a bullet and blow my distance averages out of the window, they are a great looking and easy to hit set of golf irons – just not right for my golf game at the moment.

Callaway has come a long way in recent years in my personal opinion and I will certainly be looking out for any new products they bring to market – then I’ll review any new additions as well.

I hope that this article Callaway Golf was useful and if you have any questions regarding this article please do not hesitate to leave me a comment below, I will be glad to respond to any comments left.

Happy Golfing as Always.

    Hi Kegan,

    Thanks for the comment and feedback about the article Callaway Golf, it is pretty funny considering we all thought that ‘longer’ was better – please let me know how you get on with the Callaway Fusion? I haven’t spoken to anyone yet who has been disappointed with club so far – I will look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks once again for the feedback about the article Callaway Golf it’s most appreciated.

    Cheers, Michael – Bogeys to Birdies

    Hi There, great post about Callaway Golf and the New Callaway Fusion Driver!

    A shorter than average driver? You’ve blown my mind – you’re right, longer shafts are designed for the amateur golfer, rather than those who’ve invested time and effort into developing an advanced golfing style, this club looks perfect! As humerous as it sounds, size really DOES seem to matter where professional golfing is concerned…I am visiting my local pro this weekend to give it a whirl on the driving range, thanks for the great review.

    Thanks, Kegan

    Hi Simon,

    So glad that you enjoyed the article about Callaway Golf, it is always nice to know that some of the articles are helping out our fellow golfers, you must let me know how it goes when you try out the Callaway Fusion Driver, I think you will be very impressed – but you must try it out using the different available loft options and also either the neutral or draw bias as well, its well worth a play about with to make sure you have got the right setting set up for your swing. Once again thanks for the comments about the article Callaway Golf and I look forward to hearing from you when you have tried out the Callaway Fusion Driver.

    All the best, Michael – Bogeys to Birdies

    Hi Craig,

    Thanks for your comments and feedback on the article Callaway Golf, I am so glad that you are still getting a good run for your money with your Callaway Great Big Bertha, still a great Driver and if you are hitting it well still why would you want to change, my motto is if it ‘ain’t broke why try and fix it’ so stick with the Big Bertha until it runs out of steam! When I speak to people about the varying lengths of driver shafts they are a bit confused because they thought that all golf touring pro’s used the same length driver has them, so have drivers 2 inches shorter comes to a shock to them, especially when you explain that the shorter length gives you more control. The shaft Callaway Fusion driver comes with a graphite recoil shaft which you can have either a stiff or a regular shaft in it depending on your swing speed.

    Thanks once again for your comments regarding the Callaway Golf article and if you have any further questions in the future please do not hesitate to drop me a message.

    Regards, Michael – Bogeys to Birdies

    I’ve never had a driver in my golf bag, I opted for a 2 wood instead purely because like you say it’s difficult to find a driver that suits your style and stance and for me accuracy dominated over distance and still does today. If you can keep hitting straight up the fairways you are putting the probability in your favour to accomplish a decent score, this is my view.

    I like the Callaway golf clubs but haven’t tried the Callaway Fusion Driver but having read your review I’m thinking of trying this out, it looks a quality club. I like the idea it’s a shorter driver than the majority and like you mention here, Callaway are placing accuracy at the top of their agenda.

    I play at Baildon Golf Club in West Yorkshire UK which can get windy so looking at the Callaway Fusion Driver might be an added addition before the golfing season gets underway.

    Thanks for introducing me to the Callaway Fusion Driver,

    Hi Jen,

    Hey Michael, I have always been a big fan of Callaway products and I still have my Big Bertha’s which I bought in Florida quite a few years back – so I really appreciated your article Callaway Golf. It just shows how long quality products last and it’s worth spending a few more $$$ to get that quality. Interesting what you said about the shorter length, I wasn’t aware of that. What is the shaft material, is it graphite?

    Once again great read and I will look forward to more of your articles.

    Thanks, Craig
