ApexElevateExperience presented by Callaway & True SPORTS - WGC St Jude’s Invitationa

Tomorrow the fun begins. Last month Callaway Golf & True Temper teamed up to co-sponsor a contest entitled ApexElevateExperience. Thanks to a lucky guess, I was chosen the winner and given this opportunity to experience a day on tour at The WGC/St Jude’s Invitational held in Memphis Tennessee at TPC Southland. Here’s a run down of the itinerary:

7/24 - San Diego to Memphis. Meet up with the team from True Temper. Then in the evening, it’s an evening with True Temper for a private corporate party that they’ve been gracious enough to extend an invite to.

7/25 - it’s breakfast with the Team then off to the course and WGC/st Jude’s invitational. I’ll be shown around the course by the tour team and given a chance to chat up Mr Don Brown and the rest of the team that supports the players on tour.
After that, it’s off the course and headed to a private fitting with Callaway Master Fitter Scott Felix of FelixClubworks, www.felixclubworks.com, for a set of Callaway apex. Fitting will be held at Spring Creek Ranch.
Once the fitting is done, it’s back to the hotel for a clean up and off to dinner with the team to discuss results.

7/26 back home to San Diego.


Been looking forward to this experience for a while and very grateful to Callaway and True Temper for it as well as THP for allowing me the space to document and photograph the experience. Please feel free to post up questions before, during or after the event and I’ll do my best to get them answered promptly.

Congratulations ! You will enjoy your club fitting at Felix Clubworks. Scott Felix fitted me a couple of years ago, and I’m still playing with that set. Spring Creek is a phenomenal golf course. One of the best in the south. Beautiful club house. The FedEx St. Jude has always been a great tournament, and now that’s it’s a WGC, even more so! I’ll be there all weekend and hope to play Spring Creek, as well. Have a great time in Memphis!

Another fan of Scott. Great guy. You’ll have a fantastic time with the fitting.

Give Nixon a scratch and a pat on the head.

Can’t wait for the pics and updates ! Well deserved, enjoy it and have a blast. Hope you get time to see the truck and the guys! Also interested to see if there’s any difference in fitting results from the mothership?
