It’s all go for January after the R&A and USGA published their finalised Rules of Golf. So what’s coming in? Steve Carroll outlines the changes.
Callaway Golf unveils next generation Great Big Bertha Driver
Callaway Golf has lifted the curtain on what it claims is the most forgiving and distance-enhancing driver ever created – the Great Big Bertha.
Fans of the Big Bertha series will be rubbing their hands together in anticipation for this driver to land, while those who are new to either Callaway or the Bertha ranges should definitely take time to check this over before choosing their next driver.
The Great Big Bertha works to increase golf ball speed and refine shot-shaping capabilities – along with offering maximum forgiveness and distance for every player.
One feature sure to excite the die-hards is Callaway’s R*MOTO Technology. The Great Big Bertha utilises a thinner face to produce higher ball speeds on both centre and off-centre hits, and the driver’s Adjustable Perimeter Weighting increases stability at the same time as offering a near unlimited number of draw and fade fitting options.
The Great Big Bertha equals maximum dispersion control and forgiveness to help keep every players’ shots straighter and longer.
But all the above technology does not mean Callaway has been forced to take anything away from this driver. In fact, it’s all still here – most notably Callaway’s Optifit Hosel, which allows for 8 different configurations to tune loft, lie and face angle.
“The combined key technologies of the Great Big Bertha, married to simple adjustability, will unlock previously unseen performance for all levels of golfer, allowing everyone the opportunity to increase driver distance without having to compromise playability,” explains Dr. Alan Hocknell, Senior Vice President of Research and Development at Callaway Golf.
Chip Brewer, Callaway’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “The original Great Big Bertha was iconic, it was the driver to own. The new Great Big Bertha will create a similar legacy, it will step-change performance for everyone.”
The Callaway Golf Great Big Bertha is available from 18th September, giving you just enough time to start thinking about a driver upgrade. Because when you have a Great Big Bertha in your bag, you’ll “leave no yard behind.”
