With a bunch of young talent, Callaway is poised for a big year.
Callaway has made a lot of noise to start 2014. In addition to releasing an entire fleet of new equipment, the Carlsbad, CA-based company has signed some of the hottest rising stars on the PGA and LPGA Tours. We’ve put together a quick rundown on just a few of their latest additions and what you can expect from them in the upcoming season.
- Professional Wins: 4
- Previous Equipment: Ping
The lanky Southerner is one of the rising starts on the PGA Tour and has one of the most impressive swings in the professional ranks. A bomber off the tee, English credits Callaway’s wedges as what initially sparked his interest in working with the company. Look for big things from him with another year of experience under his belt.
- Professional Wins: 5
- Previous Equipment: Titleist
The Italian Stallion, what’s not to love about this guy? At 20 years old, he is a favorite week-in and week-out on the European Tour. He’s been in the spotlight ever since bursting onto the scene at The Masters back in 2009 as a teenager. He has as big an upside as anyone teeing it up right now, and should be a major factor in the majors for years to come.
- Professional Wins: 16
- Previous Equipment: Multiple
After playing the last couple seasons with a mixed bag of equipment, Callaway has signed the equivalent of a league MVP entering free-agency. Stenson won the FedEx Cup last year and the European Tour’s Race to Dubai, making him the first player in history to do so. Plus it netted him about $20 million in on-course earnings for 2013.
- Professional Wins: 5
- Previous Equipment: None
This is a huge signing, and it’s likely that all the equipment manufacturers were licking their chops after Ko announced she was turning professional at only 16. She’s arguably the biggest phenom in the sport of golf since Tiger Woods, marketable globally, and has the talent to absolutely dominate the female side of the game. She’s already the No. 4 ranked player in the world, and she’s only been a professional since October 2013.
