Phil Mickelson Showed Up at Callaway’s Headquarters Wednesday to Bro Out with the Claret Jug


According to Callaway CEO Chip Brewer, Mickelson came up with the idea for the visit. “This wasn't even planned. Phil texted me this morning asking me if he could come by,” he said. Lefty—who wore flip-flops, because off-day, brah—told the crowd that he would stay until every employee got a moment with the Claret Jug. This, of course, led to dozens of tweets with the hashtag #speechless, which, more than likely, were kind of passive-aggresively directed at those poor saps across the street at TaylorMade.

(In all seriousness, while the Masters may carry more prestige in certain circles, the Jug is undoubtedly the coolest trophy in golf. You're going to want to linger a bit while holding it.)


Phil is a true company man. His bag for that dramatic, come-from-behind final round:

Callaway X Hot 3Deep fairway wood, 13-degree

Callaway X forged irons, 4-9, plus PW

Callaway JAWS wedges, 52- and 56-degree

Callaway Mack Daddy 2 wedges, 60- (prototype) and 64-degree

Odyssey Versa #9 putter (white/black/white)

Callaway prototype HEX Chrome+ golf ball
