I'm a Titleist guy. I admit it. I've gone to counseling and it's not helped. I've undergone shock treatments, withstood bribes, and watched Tiger Woods win major after major with "inferior equipment" following his move away from Titleist to Nike. I even saw Phil Mickelson shoot 59 after switching from Titleist. Still, I'm a Titleist guy.
But at the core, I'm a golfer, and one who plays fairly well. The line that separates "good enough" equipment from "perfect" equipment is a blurry one. I'm always looking for a bit of an advantage, and the Callaway Big Bertha 454 has gotten some rave reviews. Though Phil and Annika are playing the next Callaway driver (the recently introduced FT-3), the 454 promises to be an everyman's driver - good technology that doesn't require the ability to shoot 59 to handle it.
