www.golfweek.com is reporting that Phil Mickelson is ready to jump ship on Titleist. This would be a huge blow for Titleist and would leave them looking for a new “big name” staff player.Ernie Els is another “big name” under contract with Titleist but anytime you loose a guy like Mickelson it has got to hurt! Callaway Golf appears to be the frontrunner to grab Phil but anyone I have talked to at Callaway is quiet about this rumor.
I tried the Odyssey White Steel 2 Ball putter today and it could be the nicest putter I have ever used. It is heavier than the current White Hot 2 Ball but looks a lot like it. The insert is soft and it feels great! It should come in at about the same cost as the current 2 Ball as well. This new putter should be available in the fall. This same technology will be available in standard putter models as well.
www.callawaygolf.com now has pictures of the Callaway Heavenwood hybrid club. It looks a lot like a Big Bertha fairway wood cut in half.
