Mickelson to remain with Callaway until retirement
Callaway Golf announced on Tuesday that it had agreed a contract extension with Phil Mickelson, ensuring the five-time major winner will play the remainder of his career using the company’s golf clubs.
Mickelson, 47, is preparing to play in his 13th Presidents Cup his week, and is buoyed to have his contract done and dusted with the brand he signed with way back in 2004.
Lefty is no stranger to switching up the Callaway golf clubs in his bag, either. Over the years, he has opted to play two drivers, no driver, highly-lofted fairways and prototype wedges – the latter of which would later bear his name at retail.
“Phil has meant so much to Callaway and to the game of golf,” Callaway Golf President and CEO Chip Brewer said in a release. “He is a dynamic athlete and an iconic ambassador. We are excited to continue our relationship with him for years to come.”
“Our long association has been hugely important to my career, and this extended agreement is a great honour,” Mickelson said in the release. “We’ve enjoyed close personal and working relationships for 13 years, and I’m very grateful that it will continue through my playing days and beyond.”
