It’s US Open week. You’ve probably heard about the fescue, wide fairways, and potential winning scores since Monday morning. But now its time to put pegs in the ground and play some golf. And of course, you can expect to see Team Callaway make a run at the 2nd major of the year.
Here’s what you need to know about Callaway this week:
How Many Of Our Guys Are In The Field?
17 (and potentially 18). Let’s list them off quickly so you know who all to pick in your US Open pool: Daniel Berger, Wesley Bryan, Jim Furyk, Talor Gooch, Emiliano Grillo, Adam Hadwin, Marc Leishman, Alex Noren, Thomas Pieters, Jonathan Randolph, Patrick Reed, Danny Willett, Branden Grace, Kevin Kisner, Henrik Stenson, Brian Stuard, and Jeung-hun Wang.
Our good friend Phil Mickelson is also trying to make it to Erin Hills this week. You may have heard about that. We’re not saying we’re hoping for rain, but we certainly won’t complain if the umbrellas come out.
Who’s Hot Right Now?

That’s a long list. Berger just won last week. Kisner won over Memorial Day Weekend. Leishman, Wesley, and Hadwin have all won recently.
They all have momentum coming in, and pre-tournament favorites like Alex Noren (world no. 8), Furyk (past U.S. Open champion), Pieters (one of the best up-and-comers in the world), Stenson (a machine at majors), and Grace (ditto) are also on the short list.
What’s The Most Important Club This Week?
Driver! And specifically with this group the GBB Epic Driver. This is the word association we’ve heard about the course design:
With the wide fairways, thick rough, and tall fescue, they have to hit the driver well this week. As we’ve seen, our guys love the Epic, and because we’re shameless marketers it’s also our duty to remind you that Epic is the #1 selling driver this year.
Did Anybody Have Belts Sent To Them From Taco Bell?
Yes, Wesley Bryan did.
Check out my new belts!

He made headlines when he went to Taco Bell after winning at Harbour Town and collecting a check for well over $1 million. We can tell he’s ecstatic.

Any Last Thoughts?
A little 4-hour rain delay never hurt anybody. Enjoy the US Open and Happy Father’s Day Weekend!
