    Contest: The Company - 2019 Grandaddy of em All with Callaway Golf

    If you have been on this forum for any period of time, you have seen mention of the Grandaddy. The greatest amateur event ever created. The 2019 edition is coming and we have the captains and 4 participants, but need a full team of 11 THPers. This is contest #5 and you could be joining them.



    It is an all expenses paid trip of a lifetime.

    What's Included

    Airfare
    Hotels
    Club Fitting at ECPC
    Full bag of clubs
    Tour Callaway
    Meet R&D
    Play Golf against the Zoo Crew (Callaway Marketing team)
    Play at one of the finest courses you will ever step foot on
    And so much more its ridiculous
    And you can be part of Team THP

    The Contest
    What does Callaway Do?

    Qualifying
    You must be a 2019 Albatross Club Member to enter. The club is open to anybody and helps benefit a wonderful charity. Details here.

    How to Enter
    The Grandaddy is not just a few days of playing golf at a beautiful golf course. It is intermingling with some of the brightest minds with the current #1 company in golf equipment. When you think of Callaway Golf, what does the company say to you personally? This is not a "they are the best" type of entry. This is how a brand, its people, the equipment and the culture speak to you (if they do). You have 50 words, make them count.

    Good luck everybody. This contest will remain open for about a week.

    Callaway pushes the envelope. Like my favorite brewery, they make a great Maple Bacon Bourbon Stout even if I prefer their Hazy Grapefruit IPA. Callaway make equipment for all with pure excellence. Callaway marketing makes paying customers feel like part of the family. A Callaway club in bag since 1995.

    Wedges: OH PLEASE OH PLEASE LET THEM BE FORGED
    Putter: Whatever the hell Luke and Sean tell me to use.

    I think Callaway provides incredible value with outstanding customer interactions. I ordered the Apex 19 irons with Ctaper Lite shafts and expected to pay an up charge for them.... I didn’t! When I had a question about delivery and finish, DNevs emailed me back promptly! Callaway delivers!

    Wow, another Grandaddy opportunity, and on a Saturday! Thanks THP and Callaway, totally stoked for the opportunity.

They provide a complete array of quality products, covering everything a golfer might want or need. They obviously get it ……. THEY HOST THE GRANDADDY BABY!!!!!!!

    With all my interaction with Callaway, it comes across that the company is a real life working family. From the average tenure at the Chicopee ball plant, to how their leaders interact with people, everything comes across as a genuine family atmosphere and for that, they should be proud.

    Callaway: Leaders rather than followers. Pushing the envelop with technology and innovation and putting it in a consumable package. Understanding ALL golfers. High performance for pros and joes alike. Engaging new and budget golfers just the same (callaway preowned has no compare). Plus, the logo is awesome.

    Callaway connects with me because it feels like they love golf the way that I love golf, and that they want golf to be fun the way that I want it to be fun. They get that having the best equipment is equal to having the best foursome of friends.

    What speaks to me is how invested in US they are. The way they treat us with open arms for a few days in the desert is one thing, but what sticks out more is seeing them go above and beyond raising money to help THPers in moments of need.
