Callaway Golf Company

The world famous US American business Callaway golf company with it's headquarters in Carlsbad (California) was established in 1982 by Ely Callaway and produces golf equipment and golf accessories. Callaway golf club manufacturers belongs to Ben Hogan but the putter and golf ball production is a division of Top Flite.

The wood series "Big Bertha" enabled Callaway to break into the stock exchange at the beginning of 1990. For the production of the Drivers Callaway were the first to use stainless steel while the competition still produced its woods out of wood (Persimmon).

Also the larger and more dynamic head form set new standards in it's field.

The wood series was further developed in the following years.

For the Great Big Bertha clubs and Biggest Big Bertha titanium was the material used. Bertha Irons joined the product range in1994.

A further decisive step that was reached by the use of computer simulation and programs to optimize the clubs shape and surface is the development of the Core S2H2 - technology. Through the use of a new flexible material in the whole club the S2H2 became the market
leader in this area.

A further improvement of the club is the variable Face Thickness Technology (VFT) which was introduced in 2000. Tension reduction is achieved through a flexible material in the club head that can optimally can support the club/ball collision.

The fusion technology was introduced 2007 that is situated in the interior of the club head. This technology enables weight to be drawn-off of the balance center. Through this new geometric
design on the external ends of the head an effective weight distribution to exploit the largest inertia of the shot. The positioned weights increase the inertia moment and control a high horizontal and vertical abolition of wind drag. Through this technology the golf ball flies higher, farther and more accurately.

As a supplement to the technologies the OptiFit TM became an ever developing system which can be voted very specially by the requests and needs of the player. Presettings for the Lofts are Draw for a wanted Draw or reduced Slice/thread/shank. These adaptable features offer a maximal Performance of straight shots. The presetting thread is selected to deliberately increase shank shots and/or reduced Hook/Draw. This allows players with a tendency to play left or right to instantly straighten shot trajectories.

The shaft Aldila NVS was developed specially for Callaway golf clubs.

The shaft Aldila NVS weighing in at a mighty 60 g brings independent Felx on the shafts and helps the player in addition to get the ball easily into the air. High club head speeds can be reached by slight power exertion.

If you look at golf club evolution throught the games history it is clear that Callaway is way ahead of it's time.

Most of the clubs offered by Callaway can be found and tested at sports stores and pro shops everywhere in the world.

So what is Golf...exactly...?

They say Golf is the easiest game to learn but the hardest game to play...but why?
Golf is actually a simple game. One has a set of clubs and a ball. One whacks the ball into a few holes that were dug into the middle of a big lawn surface. Then after the 18th hole one has the irresistable desire to go into the 19th hole and tell those he didn't play with that day about his heoric deeds on the course. Most of us play golf for recuperation and because we enjoy nature and looking at great landscapes. But also, of course, because of the athletic Energy and the improvement of our game. Reducing ones handicap is also a part of the Golf game that one should not fail to neglect.

Players like tigers Woods, Ernie Els and Bernhard Langer do exactly the same but are paid millions for their efforts. But they belong to the best pro golfers of the world. For fairness' sake, one must also add, that it is also necessary to overcome a few obstacles. If I may liberally quote Winston Churchill; "Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into a even smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose."

Therefore, golf is the most difficult game in the world: The ball doesn't move alone and on average there is approximately three minutes between each shot. One therefore doesn't react to the ball like in most sports. Normally, balls are passed on, thrown, kicked, but in Golf they are struck with a club.

A golf ball simply lies quietly there and asks you defiantly not to lose it. Only a short moment is allowed in most sports in order for one to react to the ball. The movement of the body takes place automatically and the game follows wherever where the ball flies. In Golf the player has too much time to think out what their next move will be. Golf would be much simpler if the little ball could move itself and if the players had to wear roller-skates. But then it would no longer be Golf.

So what is Golf really about?

Simply expressed, golf is about whacking the ball into one hole after the other for 18 holes with as few as possible shots usine a selection of 14 differently angled clubs. After finishing 18 holes and pocketing the ball, the player tots up their results for each individual hole and gets their final score. The score is normally much larger than allowed by the rules. The lower the Score, the better the game. That is Golf. That's all there is to it. The intriuging thing about golf is the fact that it lasts a long time (Normally between 3-5 hours per round). While one plays one normally develops their strategy as the game progresses while at the same time trying to have as few shots per hole. There are many exterior and even more numerous interior influences that make this adventure so interesting. The best advice that we can give is to develop your game slowly and learn the different angles of the game without thinking too intellectually about every shot. Golf is a game that unconditionally demands the full concentration and complete contempt of the private ego. Try to attain the inner silence of a monk, at least for the duration of the round. Golf is littered with chances for foolhardy shots. But only you alone decides over successes or failures: Does one dare to the hit over the water 220 meters away from the green? Bring all your talents with you and discover the never ceasing fascination of this game that demands so much brain power. And every round has a different result. Most shots will be made to the hole from a distance of approximately 90 meters. Whoever makes shots within this range will improve their result faster than the player whose main goal consists of beating the ball as far as possible. Practise putting, the bunker game and short shots twice as often as the Drives. Those who do this will see their hard work pay off at the end of every round.

The History of Golf

Golf's interesting origin actually began five centuries ago. It is a historical fact that due to the interference of golf with much more serious combat drills, James II of Scotland banned golf in an act of Parliament on March 6 in the year 1457. There is general agreement among historians and golf fans alike that the Scots were the first golfers to become addicted to the sport. However the person or persons responsible for the invention of golf is open to debate.

It has been suggested that bored sheepherders became quite exceptional at knocking around shaped stones into rabbit holes with their wooden shepherds staffs. This and various other inventive forms of golf were played as early as the fourteenth century. These games were played in Holland, Belgium, France as well as in Scotland, thus the debate on golf' s origin is
rightly fueled.

There is another historical fact that Scottish Baron, James VI, was the man who delivered the game we know today as golf to the English. For many years the game was played on severely rugged terrain, where no proper upkeep was required. In most accounts golf was played with crudely cut holes in the ground where the earth was reasonably flat.

It was a group of Edinburgh golfers who first formed an organized club. In 1744 the Honorable Company of Edinburgh Golfers was established. At this time in history the first thirteen laws of golf were drawn up for an annual competition. This first competition consisted of players from Great Britain and/or Ireland.

One of the earliest Golf Clubs that were formed outside golf' s debatable native home of Scotland was the Royal Blackheath Golf Club of England. Blackheath came into existence in 1766, and the Old Manchester Golf Club was founded on the Kersal Moor in 1818.

By the late 1800' s the Royal Montreal Club and the Quebec Golf Club were to become the first clubs in North America. It wasn't until 1888 that golf resurfaced in the United States with more fervor than each prior surfacing. Even then it was a Scotsman, John Reid, who first built a three-hole course in Yonkers New York. St. Andrews Club of Yonkers was built in a thirty-acre site near to the original three-hole course.

From this hesitant and fitful start, golf grew rapidly as the new national pastime in America. Modern for its time the golf club, Shinnecock Hills, was founded in 1891. And in the nine years left in that century, more than one thousand prestigious golf clubs opened in North America.

The historical value of golf is as interesting as any part of our heritage. Following the path that golf took to get from a shepherds' field to the amazing golf courses that dot our culture today, it is no wonder that golf has developed into a popular pastime in all parts of the world.

Buying Great Golf Clubs Without Emptying Your Wallet

Golf clubs are some of the most expensive accessories to buy when it comes to sporting goods. However, there is no reason why they should be this way. Expensive golf clubs usually have more technology and more features, but for the average golfer it is a complete waste of money. It is possible to get clubs at a reasonable rate. The surprising thing is that most of the time these clubs will be even better for you than the more expensive ones. Read on to find out about some of the reasons why you should stick with cheaper clubs, as well as some of the places that you can buy them.

For a beginning golfer, the temptation to buy more expensive clubs comes from the illusion that they will improve the skill as if by magic. The truth is that an amazing golf club requires an amazing technique in order to make it work as desired. Expensive golf clubs are designed so that they are more efficient and less forgiving. With the slightest wrong move, you will throw the trajectory of the ball so far off track that your stroke will be laughable. If you stick with beginners golf clubs (as you should), the heads of the clubs will be much more forgiving and you will be able to practice your technique without completely embarrassing yourself in the process.

Secondhand clubs are also a good way to save money and still get some nice clubs. If you golf with people who like to stay on the cutting edge of technology, they are likely to have older clubs that are still of a very high quality level. Speak with them about purchasing the used golf clubs. With used golf clubs you need to be particularly careful, and look for anything that would compromise the quality of the clubs. Sometimes when used enough, even golf clubs will wear out and become nearly unusable. Before any money exchanges hands, take the clubs out for a test game. If you are a good friend with the person who you would like to buy from, they might even let you use the clubs for a longer period of time.

So where do you find older models of clubs, or used clubs? Auctions and pawn shops are two of the best places to go for golf clubs of this type. Golf clubs are almost a staple of auctions, and you are likely to have at least one choice. If you spend a lot of time at auctions, you will be able to have quite a few different choices for golf clubs. You will simply have to learn to recognize golf clubs and judge whether they are a worthy investment. The same goes with pawn shops. If you are able to recognize the features that you desire in a golf club, you will have endless opportunities to check for these in various venues. If you end up finding clubs that fit with what you are looking for, they will likely be much cheaper than if you had bought them at a retail store.

Cheap golf clubs are very possible to come by, but they are very risky at the same time. If you know enough about what you’re looking for, you can look at a golf club and immediately tell if it is something that is worth your time. But if you are inexperienced in buying golf clubs, you are not likely to have this knowledge. Therefore you need to carefully plan out all of the things that you are going to look for in your future golf clubs, and bring this list with you when you go to scout out for possibilities. This will help you in every way, allowing you to recognize what you need and weed out what you don’t. It may even help you to avoid wasting your money on something that isn’t exactly what you need.
