Callaway players hope to Master Augusta

Callaway Golf is boasting about a number of players that have their clubs in play this weekend.

Phil Mickelson has shown up again this year with 2 drivers – the FT-5 and FT-i. As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, the FT-i is designed with a square head and high MOI to help keep the ball straight. We certainly found that to be the case in our preliminary controlled look at the club. Mickelson is excited about the prospect of having a club he can depend on to go straight. It’s now up to Phil to align himself properly.

As everyone has heard by now, Gary Player is making his 50th consecutive appearance in the Masters. To commemorate the occasion, Callaway has designed a special bag for the ten tour pros in the tournament. The bags are now scheduled for sale – yet!

Charles Howell III finally got off the snide a few weeks ago with a long overdue tour win. The Augusta native is loaded to bear with a full line of Callaway clubs including the new FT-5, the Black Series putter by Odyssey and X-Forged irons.

My personal fave, Ernie Els once made big noise moving from Taylor Made to Titleist. This year he made considerably less noise filling up his bag with Callaway clubs. We’ll see if these help him bounce back into form.

And finally, The King, Arnold Palmer hit the ceremonial first ball of the tournament with a Callaway driver in his hands.

We’ll see how these guys do and whether they can ride Callaway into the winner’s circle.
