Phil Mickelson Callaway

Phil Mickelson will be a Callaway man until he retires from competitive golf, the Carlsbad-based company announced today.

The terms of the 47-year-old’s deal were not released.

Mickelson, who joined Callaway from Titleist in 2004, will continue to play a full bag of Callaway clubs for the remainder of his career. He won four of his five major championships while playing the company’s equipment.

“Phil has meant so much to Callaway and to the game of golf,” said Callaway Golf President and CEO, Chip Brewer. “He is a dynamic athlete and an iconic ambassador. We are excited to continue our relationship with him for years to come.”

“Our long association has been hugely important to my career and this extended agreement is a great honor,” said Mickelson. “We’ve enjoyed close personal and working relationships for 13 years and I’m very grateful that it will continue through my playing days and beyond.”

Mickelson’s bag includes a Callaway Great Big Bertha Sub-Zero Driver, Great Big Bertha Epic Fairway Woods, prototype irons, an Odyssey Putter, and a Chrome Soft X Ball.

    I bet on a per year basis, he’s not getting paid as much as did as he was in his prime. He’s on the tail end of his career.

    He’s gonna be the winningest player in Senior Tour history by beating Langer’s record to shreds

      Langer’s record*
      * note: This player used a putter more than 40″ long to establish this record.

    As long as you can get what Phil’s using from Callaway.

    What? LH Blade irons? Callaway? Prototypes.

    “Such a “tiny” market.”

    Didn’t Phil win the British Open with a PING club in his bag too?

    Phil is just a walking talking advertisement for Callaway… nothing more.

Bob Parsons explains why PXG Gen2 irons cost $400, but are “probably worth $1000”



As part of the launch of its new 0311 Gen2 irons, Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG) offered me time to interview the man himself, Bob Parsons, who’s the founder and CEO of PXG. Parsons founded in 1997, among other companies throughout his professional career, and depending on how much you trust Forbes’ Net Worth estimates, he’s worth $3 billion.

Kelly Tilghman leaving Golf Channel after 22 years



Kelly Tilghman is stepping away from Golf Channel after a 22-year run at the network. The Myrtle Beach native has been a less visible presence on air in recent years.

The first woman to serve as play-by-play announcer for a PGA Tour event, Tilghman announced Wednesday that this will be her last week at Golf Channel.

Tilghman began working at the network in 1996 in the tape library, starting just a year after Golf Channel’s inception. Her departure leaves Mike Ritz and Rich Lerner as the only remaining on-air talents from the channel’s early years.

Golf Channel released this statement.

Tilghman told Golfweek’s Forecaddie she’s not done with television just yet.

“This process was very peaceful for me…I can’t imagine a scenario where I would never be on television again.”

In a farewell letter published on Golf Channel’s website, Tilghman wrote about the decision to step away at Bay Hill.

“It’s the perfect spot for so many obvious reasons. Arnold’s family will be there. My Golf Channel and NBC family will be there. I know you will too, like you always have. I’ll forever cherish the memories we’ve built together.”

You can read her full letter here, which includes the Arnold Palmer anecdote below.

“Enter Arnold Palmer. I’ll never forget that day in the early years when he paid our tiny newsroom a surprise visit. It was an honor to be in his presence. One could only imagine how I felt when he put his hand on my shoulder and whispered, “I hope you believe in this place as much as I do.”

“Yes, Arnold, I did.”

Wednesday’s Photos from the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational



GolfWRX is live from Bay Hill Club & Lodge (par 72; 7,419 yards) in Orlando, Florida for the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational. The tournament, in the namesake of the late Arnold Palmer, has been played at Bay Hill aka “Arnie’s Place” since 1979. Tiger Woods, who’s in the field this week, has won eight of those events — the last time Woods played in the event was in 2013, where he picked up his eighth victory at Bay Hill.


Joining Woods in the field this week are notables Justin Rose, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, honorary co-host Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott, Bubba Watson, and Hideki Matsuyama, who’s back from being sidelined with wrist problems.

Last year, Marc Leishman shot a final-round 69 to beat out Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman by one stroke to capture the tournament title.

Check out our photos from this week at Bay Hill below!
