Callaway Golf re-signs Phil Mickelson
Phil Mickelson is one of the most recognisable golfers in the world and his partnership with Callaway is well known. So it was hardly a surprise when the news came in a couple of weeks ago that the company had offered Phil an extension to his current deal – just as it was no surprise to see ‘Lefty’ quickly accept the offer.
In a statement on Callaway Golf’s Official website, Mickelson talks about his reasons for not considering a brand switch and opting to continue his career as part of the Callaway team.
“When I joined the team at Callaway 10 years ago, I knew I was making the best decision of my career,” Mickelson said. “And I feel even stronger about the decision today. Backed by innovative technologies, industry-leading products, and the outstanding R&D group that works so closely with me, I honestly believe that these next few years will be the best of my career.”
Mickelson has enjoyed a stellar career to date, with his name already placed in the hallowed World Golf Hall of Fame. He has won 5 major championships and 42 PGA Tour events. As a Staff Pro, Mickelson will continue to use Callaway clubs, Callaway golf balls and Callaway staff bag.
