CalawayXR16_SubZer_Driver_face-1500x1160Callaway Golf could be said to be on a roll with endorser Danny Willet winning at the Masters followed this week by Tour staff member Branden Grace crafting a fine final round in the RBC Heritage at the Harbor Town course at Hilton Head for his first PGA Tour victory and second victory of the year worldwide.

CallawayXR16_SubZero_Driver_Sole_1500x1940Grace’s bag was Callaway from driver—the XR 16 Sub Zero—to putter, the Odyssey Versa V-Line in a white/black/white pattern.

In between were the Big Bertha Alpha 816 Fairway Wood (16 degrees), an Apex Utility 3-iron, X-Forged Irons (2013) 4-iron through pitching wedge and three Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind Wedges of 52 degrees, 56 degrees and 60 degrees.

Grace is a devotee of low spin drivers and his XR 16 Sub Zero is the 8.5 degree model which his first played at the Dell Match Play in Austin last month. He has said he likes the shape, finish and sound of the Sub Zero and feels he can flight the ball any way he needs to, a major benefit playing the tight tree-lined fairways of the Harbor Town course.

Callaway is promoting this as the third week in a row one of the XR 16 family drivers has won on a professional tour. In addition to Willet at the Masters and Grace at Harbor Town, two weeks ago Lydia Ko used an XR 16 Pro to win the ANA Inspiration.
