Callaway Apex UW Offers Tour-Inspired Versatility

CARLSBAD, CA – Apex UW is a high-performance Utility Wood that Tour players love. This unique design combines the best features of higher lofted fairway woods, the best features of hybrids, and a more neutral ball flight. Using direct feedback from world-class pros like Phil Mickelson, we’ve created a multi-purpose club that better players can rely on from the tee, fairway, or rough.

Ball speed is a given from our proven A.I. Designed Flash Face SS21, Jailbreak A.I. Velocity Blades plus our Forged C300 Face Cup, and distance is just one of the performance benefits of this versatile Utility Wood.

We’re delivering Apex performance from MIM’D Tungsten Weighting (18g per club on average), which we use to precisely position the Center of Gravity (CG). The neutral CG configuration promotes higher launch and steeper landing angles for better stopping power, along with optimized spin rates, all while reducing unwanted draw bias. The clean, compact shape creates workability for better shot-making with enhanced control. All these characteristics help to provide 17% more consistent downrange dispersion for impressive accuracy.

Tour Pros and better players have been asking for a new “go-to” club that’s easy to hit, easy to control, consistently long, and a reliable option for a variety of shots.

Features & Benefits

High Velocity Ball Speeds From Jailbreak A.I. Velocity Blades
Our Jailbreak A.I. Velocity Blades are engineered to increase vertical stiffness near the sole of the club, creating more speed low on the face where players often mishit their hybrids. These blades allow the Face Cup to flex on the crown for better spin rate consistency, and the bars are spread to enhance torsional stiffness, leading to more forgiveness all across the face.

Fast Ball Speed From A.I. Designed Flash Face SS21 + Forged Face Cup
Every loft is uniquely designed using advanced A.I. This proven ball speed technology puts an even greater emphasis on center and off-center ball speeds. The A.I. face is forged using a high strength C300 Maraging Steel for speed and spin consistency across the face.

High Launch, Consistent Control and Tighter Dispersion
The Apex UW lineup averages 18 grams of MIM’D Tungsten Weighting per club. We’ve precisely positioned the Center of Gravity in a neutral location for an exceptional combination of high  launch, steeper landing angles, consistent spin characteristics and reduced draw bias. With 17% tighter downrange dispersion, these utility woods promote impressive accuracy into the fairway or green.

Clean, Compact, Workable Shape
The distinct clubhead shaping is inspired by in-depth feedback from TOUR pros. It’s a compact profile that they want to see and allows better players to shape their shots for enhanced control.

Foresight Sports and Bushnell Golf Bring “Game Changing” Personal Launch Monitor to Every Golfer

SAN DIEGO, CA – Two of the game’s technology leaders have teamed up to deliver an uncompromising indoor/outdoor launch monitor at a price that puts pro-level tech in reach of every player.

More than a decade after the debut of Foresight Sports’ GC2 – the golf industry’s all-time bestselling professional launch monitor – the leading-edge technology maker has teamed up with Bushnell Golf to change the game once again with a personal launch monitor that redefines accuracy and performance.

Built on the same advanced photometric innovation found in Foresight Sports’ Tour-dominating GCQuad, the new launch monitor, sold under the name Launch Pro by Bushnell Golf and GC3 by Foresight Sports, features a three-camera system that delivers ball and essential club performance data both outdoors and indoors with industry-leading precision. And like its professional-grade predecessors, the new Launch Pro/GC3 personal launch monitor will be available in a price category that puts its advanced capabilities – from the range to the course to the simulation studio – well within reach of the avid golfer.

According to Foresight Sports’ Director of Sales Rick Cuellar, the Launch Pro/GC3 answers a long-awaited need in golf – making the highest-level performance and entertainment technology accessible to more golf consumers. “The Launch Pro/GC3 was designed from the start to improve on our original GC2 by including some of the unmatched club data insight of our GCQuad. It delivers the ball and club data players rely on for actionable game improvement both on the range and in the virtual golf simulator. No other product on the market comes close to delivering the range of options and level of indoor/outdoor accuracy within the price range of the Launch Pro or GC3.”

To bring the new technology to the largest audience possible, Bushnell Golf’s Launch Pro will be offered at a base price of $2,999. Players will be able to access additional performance data and entertainment features via yearly subscriptions plans. Foresight Sports’ GC3 will include comprehensive ball and club data access out-of-the-box, including the company’s FSX performance and entertainment software and 10-course bundle, for $6,995. The company plans to offer the GC3 with a subscription-based data access model to its international customers starting in 2022.
