Phil Mickelson and Callaway
Callaway signed Phil Mickelson back in 2004 after his first Masters win. Previously Lefty was playing Titleist. Four more major titles later, he signed an extension in 2009. Although details of the deal were not disclosed, we can only assume Phil wheeled and dealed something in his favor.
“When I joined the team at Callaway 10 years ago, I knew I was making the best decision of my career,” Mickelson said as part of a release. “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.”
