A Win For Mickelson, A Win for Golf, and A Win for Callaway?

Phil Mickelson’s triumph at Augusta has been hailed as not only a win for himself, but for the world of golf. While the gallery drowned in mixed emotions for Tiger, Mickelson only heard shouts of encouragement and delight, which sounded more like a roar when he sank his shot on the 13th hole.

Less known was the effect that this win had on Callaway. If you don’t already know what’s in Phil’s Bag, it’s all Callaway and an Odyssey White Hot XG putter.

Callaway had a great start to the year already after being named top dog on Golf Digest’s annual Hot List. And;

“Through 16 PGA Tour events and the year’s first Major tournament, Callaway Drivers, Irons, Putters and Golf Balls have amassed more victories than any other equipment manufacturer. To put Callaway’s recent dominance on the PGA Tour in perspective, consider that the Company’s new FT Tour Driver has now won six of the last nine PGA Tour events; Callaway Irons and Tour i Series Golf Balls have won five in that same span; and the Company’s Odyssey brand of Putters has claimed five of its eight 2010 victories since this hot streak began at the Mayakoba Classic. Impressively, this run of success has been earned by a staff of tour professionals that is considerably smaller in number than those competing for the other major equipment manufacturers.”

You can be sure some golf bags are going to be changing this year! So how does your golf bag measure up Rockheads?
