Curtis Luck signs equipment deal with Callaway
Curtis Luck, who turned professional earlier this year, has agreed to an equipment deal with Callaway Golf.
The 20-year-old Australian was the #1 amateur in the world when he turned pro, and both he and Callaway are hoping things will only get better now the two are on the same team.
Tomorrow I play the @valerotxopen a professional and I can't wait to get my first event underway in San Antonio. I'm joining @callawaygolf for this next phase of my career as I believe in surrounding myself with the best team possible. Thanks to everyone for the support as I start this new chapter in my life.
Curtis already has 14 Callaway clubs in the bag, including a GBB Epic Driver, and a GBB Epic Fairway Wood.
He will add to Callaway’s tremendous group of talented young players, a list that includes Patrick Reed, Adam Hadwin, Danny Willett, Wesley Bryan, Ollie Schniederjans, Aaron Wise, Branden Grace, Thomas Pieters, Michelle Wie, Cody Gribble, Danny Lee, Patrick Rodgers, Emiliano Grillo, and Daniel Berger.
In a dominant amateur career, Luck won the 2016 U.S. Amateur, the 2016 Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship, and the 2016 Western Australian Open on the PGA Tour of Australasia while using Callaway equipment. His convincing win at the U.S. Amateur secured his invitation to Augusta, where he was one of just two amateurs to make the cut.
