    It's a less in-direct type of trash talking but it definitely works. Worked quite well on me.

    Another amazing video, those this banter and back and forth between them. And you can always hear when a callaway employee talks about their passion, but holy cow does Harry bleed Callaway, what a great asset for them as a company.

    As it's been pointed out by JB, a golf purchase is an emotional purchase. People want to feel connected to a brand and story and no one is doing that better than Callaway right now.

    Callaway Engagement with Harry Arnett

    Great interview. That genuine attitude Harry has comes from the top down and they’ve really empowered everyone over there to think that way. I remember at The Grandaddy listening to Chip Brewer come in and talk to us, he had he same attitude, it was clear it wasn’t an act, but really how passionate they were. And a lot of the guys on the bus talked about how awesome it was to have that type of leadership.

    Great interview! I really like Callaway's direction in the last 5 years, it's been fun and it started from the top and everyone has bought into it. It does help that the products can stand up to the message.

    Glad you guys enjoyed this one. This was Michael Vrska's idea as he has enjoyed following the brand's success after working for Chip and Tim Reed. Im glad we were able to get it done as we did not spend a whole lot of time in the Callaway booth (or any booth).

    Harry is always a great interview. A smart and witty guy, it is always enjoyable to me. I really like what they've done over the last couple years. Having their team be engaging and able to be talked to like they are on social media is huge. It really does go a long way in making me feel like they have the same passion about the game as I do. It is pretty darn cool. Just makes you want to give it a try. And then, they really want the equipment to be tried and see for ourselves and get that input. Pretty ingenious tactic imho.
