It’s the beginning of a new year, which means it’s time for equipment companies to take a look at who should be playing their clubs this season. For those keeping score at home, Callaway has announced the players that they’re sponsoring for the 2016 season.
Callaway has a portfolio of marquee players in Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson and Branden Grace. But they also have two newcomers: Marc Leishman and Tom Watson.
Leishman, who formerly played Titleist, finished last year number 25 on the Official World Golf Ranking. The most notable moment of his 2015 season was the British Open. Remember? He was part of that playoff that brought the world’s dreams of a Jordan Speith Grand Slam to an end? He was also T-5 in the British Open in 2014, and fourth in the 2014 Masters. MORE
