A first look is now available for those curious about Callaway’s next driver installment following the GBB Epic. According to the USGA Conforming List, the next driver will be called the Rogue. It will also come in a Sub Zero version. The listing doesn’t describe all of the changes that there will be compared to the Epic, but it does mention the return of the Jail Break Technology.

As 2017 comes to a close, the promise of new golf clubs in 2018 is just around the corner. While many players will spring to try out the latest and greatest, the equipment released this year remains capable as ever.
