Sam Burns, NCAA Player of the Year, signs with Callaway, Adidas

Published

Sam Burns is officially a Callaway man. The 21-year-old former LSU standout makes his professional debut this week at the Sanderson Farms Championship, and he’ll be doing so with a full bag of Callaway equipment.

Here are the clubs currently in his bag at the Sanderson Farms Championship. 

As a sophomore, Burns won four times during the 2016-2017 season. He was named the NCAA Division I Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year and was voted SEC Player of the Year. He was also a First Team All-American.

“I am so excited to join Callaway as I start my professional career,” Burns said. “I have been using their clubs and have seen just how good the performance is, especially in the driver and irons. I’m entering the next phase of my golf career with a lot of confidence.”

To go along with Callaway equipment, Burns will wear Adidas apparel and shoes, per a press release today.

Burns has already played an impressive tournament on the PGA Tour: He tied for sixth at the Barbasol Championship in July, setting a scoring record for an amateur in a Tour event in the process.

Callaway’s current stable of young stars includes Patrick Reed, Daniel Berger, Adam Hadwin, Wesley Bryan, Ollie Schniederjans, Aaron Wise, Branden Grace, Thomas Pieters, Michelle Wie, Grayson Murray, Patrick Rodgers, Emiliano Grillo, and, most recently, Maverick McNealy.

    Other notables in the “stable” would include niche favorite Phil Mickelson and some other dude from Europe or something named Henrik Stenson.
