Mickelson becomes the oldest major champion ever with a new Epic Speed Driver, Chrome Soft X Triple Track Golf Ball and Callaway equipment

CARLSBAD, Calif., May 24, 2021 – Phil Mickelson delivered a record-breaking performance for the ages at Kiawah Island and claimed his sixth major win on Sunday at the PGA Championship. Mickelson relied on Callaway Golf (NYSE: ELY) equipment and an Odyssey Putter throughout the week while becoming the oldest major champion ever at age 50.

With the combination of his new Callaway Epic Speed Driver, Callaway Irons, and a Callaway Chrome Soft X Triple Track Golf Ball, Mickelson led the elite field in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green. He drove the ball exceptionally well throughout the championship and hit a 366 yard bomb at the 16th hole on Sunday when he needed it most.

Callaway believes that their Chrome Soft Golf Ball Family isn’t just better, it’s better for everyone. Mickelson’s golf ball features Callaway’s innovative Triple Track Technology, which utilizes Vernier Hyper Acuity for improved putting alignment and accuracy. He has been playing with Triple Track Technology since the beginning of 2019.

His winning driver is engineered with Callaway’s A.I. designed Jailbreak Speed Frame. By applying Artificial Intelligence, this structure improves stability in horizontal and torsional direction for increased ball speeds across the face.

In Mickelson’s bag this week from Callaway Golf and Odyssey:

  • Callaway Epic Speed Driver, 6-degree
  • Callaway MAVRIK Sub Zero Fairway Wood, 16.5-degree
  • Callaway X Forged Utility Irons, 4-5
  • Callaway Apex MB Irons, 6-PW
  • Callaway Mack Daddy PM Grind Wedges, 52-, 55-, 60-degree
  • Odyssey PM Prototype Putter
  • Callaway Chrome Soft X Triple Track Golf Ball

“We want to congratulate Phil Mickelson on capturing his historic win at the PGA Championship,” said Callaway President & CEO, Chip Brewer. “He has been such a tremendous ambassador for Callaway and the game of golf, and we couldn’t be happier for Phil as he reaches another illustrious milestone in his Hall of Fame career. It’s clear that he still has plenty of championship level golf ahead.”
