UK golfers are being offered a unique insight into life as a tour professional when the Callaway Golf Tour Truck stops off at golf venues across the UK over the coming months.
In the same way a Touring Pro is fitted and his clubs built on the same day, golfers attending these events will have their performance computer analysed by FlightScope (opens in new tab) - the radar ball-tracking system - and have their clubs made up on the spot by one of Callaway Golf’s European Tour technicians.
The 28-tonne mobile facility normally custom builds clubs for top Callaway Golf Staff Professionals including European Tour stars Oliver Wilson, Alvaro Quiros, Graeme McDowell and Major winners Ernie Els and Michael Campbell. But during April it will be at three UK venues, offering amateur golfers the ultimate Tour Pro experience and same-day club making.
Golfers will also experience the FlightScope (opens in new tab) system, newly-introduced to the Callaway Demo Day Programme. FlightScope is a 3D golf tracking radar system that follows the clubhead and the ball flight feeding back information by way of a series of screens on a computer. It shows simulated ball flight of all shots hit giving a ranked order of statistics, including carry, speed, trajectory, spin and launch angle.
So not only will golfers be able to experience the incredible new Callaway Golf 2009 product range (including the Tour winning Callaway FT-9 and the Callaway Diablo Driver) and be treated like a Tour Pro, they will receive information about their golf swing at the same time too.
The 18-metre long Tour Truck has two seven-metre pop-out sections, and is kitted out with every cutting-edge device, to customise iron loft and lie angles, cut shafts to size, put on or change grips, measure swing weights, plus grind and buff clubs.
The Callaway Tour Truck will be visiting the following venues during April. Please call in advance to book your custom fitting appointment :
