Matt Wallace has endured a rapid rise to prominence over the past two years. He won three times on the European Tour in 2018 and was one of the first players left off the European Ryder Cup team. Then, in 2019, he finished T3 and T12 in back-to-back majors and rose to 23rd in the Official World Golf Ranking.
Since putting the Callaway Mavrik in play, his driving distance jumped from 300.6 yards in 2019 to 310.2 in 2020.

Wallace’s key for more distance? Don’t swing hard.
