Need To Know
The new Callaway MAVRIK driver launched earlier this year and is already in the hands of many players on both the PGA and European Tour. By investing in a new and more powerful supercomputer, Callaway’s R&D team advanced its ability to use Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and Machine Learning to design wide-ranging performance features and technologies that have been incorporated across the entire MAVRIK line.
With the current weather conditions in the UK, testing clubs outside is a bit of a challenge, given the high wind, rain fall and cold conditions, so we thought we'd mix things up a bit.
Tee Box is the latest indoor golf facility to hit London, found in the heart of the city in St Paul's, it's the perfect place to work on your game if you work in the country's capital.
We took the Callaway MAVRIK driver down to Tee Box where PGA Professional Scott Winyard put the driver to the test using a Trackman launch monitor. Watch the full review in the video below:
MAVRIK Drivers feature Callaway’s new Flash Face SS20 architecture, designed by A.I., with a more expansive area that delivers ultra-fast ball speeds working in conjunction with Callaway’s proven Jailbreak Technology. Each driver model’s face is designed to work with the individual specifications of each head – size, shape, CG location, footprint, internal weighting – to maximise distance. The complexity of each Flash Face SS20 design demands a new and stronger material — FS2S titanium — to allow the ultra-thin design to stand up to the stress of impact, allowing MAVRIK Drivers to maintain fast ball speed without compromising clubface integrity.
Callaway engineers didn’t limit A.I. to the clubface. For the first time they used it to create a new internal rib system designed to more efficiently control impact vibration to promote more satisfying sound and feel. Callaway Tour Staff pros who tested and provided feedback during the MAVRIK Driver development universally praised the sound and feel.
In addition, MAVRIK Drivers leverage several proven technologies that are crucial to the overall performance – Jailbreak and a T2C triaxial carbon crown. Jailbreak features two internal bars that connect the sole and crown to promote faster ball speed, and the T2C triaxial carbon crown is significantly lighter to raise MOI and forgiveness.
