Callaway has extended its relationship with Adam Hadwin. While terms of the partnership were not released, Hadwin will continue to play a full bag of Callaway equipment.
Last year when he recorded a round of 59 at the CareerBuilder Challenge, won the Valspar Championship and qualified for the Presidents Cup, Hadwin played Callaway Epic woods, Apex irons, Mack Daddy wedges, an Odyssey putter and a Chrome Soft ball.
“This was an easy decision,” said Hadwin. “Callaway equipment helped me take my game to the next level and the Callaway Tour Team gives me the best support I’ve ever had.”
“Great player, great guy,” said Tim Reed, Callaway SVP, Global Sports Marketing. “We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with Adam and proud of his trust in Callaway equipment.”
PING Signs K.J. Choi
PING has also signed K.J. Choi to an agreement that will see him play a minimum of 13 PING clubs, with the company logo on his hat and golf bag.
“K.J. has played a lot of PING equipment in his career and been a friend to us going back to 2011 , and he’s been a consistently strong performer on tour for many years. We’re proud to make him an official member of the PING team,” said PING chairman and CEO John A. Solheim.
“He’s a friendly , highly likeable person and widely respected by his peers. He’s been on four Presidents Cup teams, playing in three and serving as vice captain of the International Team in 2015, so he’s competed at the highest level internationally. He’ll bring the PING brand tremendous exposure and credibility around the world, especially in South Korea, where he’s extremely popular among golfers,” he added.
This week at the Sony Open in Hawaii, Choi will play a G400 driver and fairway woods, G400 hybrid, G 400 irons , Glide 2.0 wedges and a Sigma G Piper putter.
