Lamkin Grips


It is finally here. The event that caps a wonderful year and one that is often billed as “The Perfect Golf Event” begins next week 12 lucky THP Forum Members are flown to California for a chance to spend the week getting fit for new clubs and playing at one of the finest golf courses. It can only be billed as The Grandaddy.

Year long buildup with contests to gain entry as twelve THP members and twelve members of the Callaway marketing team, affectionately known as the Zoo Crew, will arrive in Palm Springs for the war to settle the score.

This year, THP and Callaway Golf have a staff out on the range and course covering all of the action for everybody, and posting those updates in the THP Live Update Thread. Amanda Balionis, Tony Toulon, Jeff Newton and JB from THP will all be bringing you the action in the Live Update thread on the THP Forum. The golf trip of a lifetime is laid out over three days beginning in Carlsbad where each participant will get fit for new clubs at the Ely Callaway Performance Center and then head to Palm Springs to play golf at one of the finest courses in the country, where they will put their new clubs to the test.

But just because you are not headed to play, does not mean you can’t be a part of the action. First you will be able to follow along live and see everything the participants do, right here on the THP Forum.

Before the festivities kick off Monday evening though, you have a chance at a BIG Contest! Entering is easy and all you have to do is pick the winner. Team Prestige made up of lucky THPers or Team Zoo Crew, from Callaway Golf.

    I don’t think I’ve ever picked the Grandaddy winner correctly. I flipped a coin this year. I’m pulling for Team Prestige, but the coin came up Zoo Crew, so the Zoo Crew is my pick.

    I’ve got a feeling the Zoo Crew is taking this one back this year. I really hope I’m wrong though.

    Zoo Crew with team Callaway will walk away with it this year.

  23. TheHeez says:

    If my picking is anything like fantasy sports I’ll pick who I don’t want to win and they will win! With that I select The ZooCrew as the “winners”.

    Hate to go against THP, but I say Zoo Crew takes this one with the new additions to the team.

  27. HuddieJ says:

    I’m going to go with the Zoo Crew cause my brother, JDax is on Team THP and I don’t think his game can hold up under the pressure! Hahaha! Hope you have a great time bro! Best of luck!
