Callaway Golf also decided to use two of Hilton Head Island’s golf gems- Palmetto Dunes and Sea Pines, and friends of the Island- PGA Tour Radio stars John Maginnes and Brian Katrek, to launch its new set of irons featuring 360 Face Cup Technology. In a new video, the super-competitive hosts of “Katrek and Maginnes On Tap” offer up the new irons to resort guests at the two resort’s practice grounds to compare against their current irons, and report the increased distance of the new irons—up to 20 yards per player. You’ll have to watch the video to see which host’s “team” wins.
The real winners might have been firefighter Craig Mateski of Morris, IL and Chris Morris of Minneapolis, who were given new sets of Callaway irons for their participation. Morris could really use them, his clubs were stolen just before his trip to Hilton Head Island.
Oh, and that Callaway XR 16 Driver? It was in the bag, and used off the tee by eventual RBC Heritage winner Branden Grace, continuing a 5-year run of winners with a connection to title sponsors RBC or Boeing.
