Callaway new "Night Mode" Paradym
Callaway releases 'Night Mode' versions of the Paradym, Paradym Triple Diamond drivers
Callaway released the Paradym, Paradym X and Paradym Triple Diamond drivers in early January, and since that time, those clubs have been used by stars like Jon Rahm, Sam Burn, Chris Kirk and Si Woo Kim to win on the PGA Tour, and now Rose Zhang used one to win in her LPGA debut.
A key technology in the Paradym drivers is a 360-degree carbon fiber wrap that encircles the middle of the head and is made using forged pieces of carbon fiber. Callaway gave it a deep navy color, but now for golfers who love all-black clubs, Callaway is releasing Night Mode versions of the Paradym and Paradym Triple Diamond.
Like the standard versions, the Paradym and Paradym Triple Diamond Night Mode drivers feature faces that are designed using artificial intelligence (AI) to help maximize ball speed across a larger portion of the hitting area. Using triaxial carbon fiber in the crown and forged carbon fiber in the sole reduces weight by 44 percent. That allowed Callaway designers to redistribute weight in the Paradym Night mode to a 15-gram sliding weight in the back of the head that helps players create a draw or fade bias.
In the Paradym Triple Diamond Night Mode, Callaway added a weight screw behind the leading edge to pull the center of gravity position forward, which lowers spin, decreases the launch angle and increases ball speed.
The Paradym and Paradym Triple Diamond Night Mode drivers will each cost $699 and be available in 9 and 10.5-degree versions and come standard with a Project X HZRDUS Black GEN4 Night Mode shaft and Golf Pride New Decade MCC Black grip.
2023 Charles Schwab Predictictions
2023 Charles Schwab Challenge odds, predictions: Favorites and picks from the field
Last week we won big on Brooks Koepka (+2200 at FOX Bet) at the PGA Championship. Let's see if we can replicate the magic as we turn our attention to the Colonial for the Charles Schwab Challenge.
The par-70 track is 7,209 yards long with Bentgrass greens. The 87-year-old course has hosted the tournament since 1946, making it the longest-running non-major tournament at the same venue. This helps us from a betting perspective, as we can dig through plenty of data to help us narrow down our card.
Sam Burns won the tournament last year in a playoff over Scottie Scheffler. Burns comes into this week at +2200 to repeat, while Scheffler is the clear-cut favorite to win, +400 at FOX Bet. We'd be remiss if we didn't talk about PGA professional Michael Block, who was the real hero of last weekend outside of Koepka. Block, a sponsor’s exemption this week, is listed at +30000 to win the tournament.
I can go on and on about how good Scheffler is, but his number is just too short for me to throw down some pizza money on.
Now that we teed off with the basics, let's approach the favorites and my outright portfolio for this tournament.

Day breaks five year winless drought by winning AT&T
Jason Day breaks five-year winless drought, wins 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson
Rain pelted Jason Day as he lined up his approach shot from the fairway.
With a wedge in hand, he fired at the back right pin on the par-5 18th hole at TPC Craig Ranch. His ball landed just right of the flag, took one small hop and then spun back to two feet.
It has been five years since Jason Day won on the PGA Tour, but his winless drought is over. Day was phenomenal Sunday at the AT&T Byron Nelson, carding a 9-under 62 to win by one shot at 23 under in the same tournament he picked up his first career win 13 years ago.
“I don’t know how to explain it,” Day said. “I came into the week after missing last week’s cut, and I was kind of fed up with having to go over like a lot of technical thoughts with my swing. So I just decided I’m just going to go out and just try and play some golf.”
For Day, it’s his 13th PGA Tour victory and first since the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship.
Si Woo Kim, who played with Day in the penultimate pairing, birdied the 18th, as well, to momentarily tie the Aussie at 22 under, but Day tapped in his approach in a steady downpour before walking off the green and embracing his family.
“I was very close to calling it quits,” Day said of his thoughts during his struggles. “I never told my wife that, but I was OK with it just because it was a very stressful part of my life.
“Ellie (Jason’s wife), she never gave up on me trying to get back to the winner’s circle again. She just always was pushing me to try and get better.
“Yeah, I don’t know. It feels strange to be sitting here. I don’t know how else to explain it.”
It rained off and on throughout the day, but a downpour started once Day’s group reached the 18th tee. There were even claps of thunder as the final group approached the 18th green.
Day, 35, started his round with a pair of pars before three straight birdies on Nos. 3-5. He then birdied the ninth to turn in 4-under 32.
A birdie on 10 moved him to 19 under and into a six-way tie for the lead. But it was his chip-in birdie from the fringe on 12 that gave him the solo lead and put him in the driver’s seat the rest of the way.
“A couple years ago with all the stress — the stuff that was going on personally, it’s just strange that all that stuff kind of adds up and it’s nice to be able to — feeling like I’m on the other side of that,” Day said.
Austin Eckroat, one of the three 54-hole leaders, had an eagle putt on the final hole to tie Day, but he left it short. Nevertheless, the 24-year-old Tour rookie made the birdie to finish at 22 under and closed with a bogey-free 6-under 65 for his best finish on Tour. He led the field in Strokes Gained: Putting for the week.
“I felt great all day,” Eckroat said. “Slept good last night, really surprised myself with how I felt. When I came out and birdied the first hole, it really settled the nerves a little bit. Everything was solid, and I really felt like I played well enough to win.
“It’s just hard to beat a guy that goes out and shoots 9 under. A lot of positives to build off of.”
Marty Dou and Ryan Palmer, the other co-leaders, each shot 3-under 68 to finish at 19 under and T-7.
C.T. Pan matched Day with a 62, which including a pair of eagles on the back nine. It also was the lowest round of his PGA Tour career by two shots.
Dallas native Scottie Scheffler, who would’ve moved to No. 1 in the world with a victory, shot a bogey-free 6-under 65 on Sunday, but he finished T-5 at 20 under.
Now, Day heads to Rochester, New York, site of the 105th PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club. Day won the 2015 PGA at Whistling Straits.
