Mr. Kevin Yeap expressed,” We are indeed excited that we can finally showcase the ROGUE series line-ups to all the golf fans here in South East Asia. The ROGUE series employs the more powerful and more forgiving improved Jailbreak Technology not only in the drivers but as well on the fairway woods and hybrid, making us the first ever to have successfully installed our groundbreaking Jailbreak Technology in a fairway wood and hybrid. Our new Chrome Soft & Chrome Soft X golf balls too are also another revolutionary innovation with the trailblazing new Graphene Dual SoftFast Core. These golf balls combine Tour-proven performance with unparalleled feel and exceptional mis-hit forgiveness. You will have to try it to believe it, as we truly believe that you’ve never played a ball like this.”

After the presentation, all invited dealers, business partners, guest and media were ushered to the driving range for the clubs demonstration, where all had the first hand opportunity in trying out the ROGUE for themselves. Taking place at the same time was also the Novelty Challenge consisting of the Longest Drive using the ROGUE Drivers and Speed Putting using the new extension line of Odyssey putters.
