Welcome to the latest installment of Catching Up With Callaway, a monthly series that keeps you informed with anything and everything to do with Callaway. We’ll let you know what’s happening with their tour pros as well as exciting things they are doing off the course. This week we will look at #TheLinksAtPetco, designing your own wedges, and recapping the results by their tour staff.

For the second year, Callaway has transformed Petco Field, where the San Diego Padres play baseball, into a golf course! Hitting from different spots around the stadium, players aim at different “holes” designed in the outfield. The 9-hole course attracted young to old and amateur to pro to the weekend event. The Padres listed the tournament info on their site and how to sign up to get on the waitlist for next year, should it return there!
The MD3 milled wedge by Callaway is now being offered as a customizable wedge! In addition to the stock options, customers can go to the Callaway Customs site and design their very own wedge. Custom options include paint fill, stamping, head, shaft, and grip. What cool creation can you come up with?
Callaway staffers made a strong showing at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Harris English, Pat Perez, and Aaron Wise finished in the top 10 while four other staffers made the cut. Pat Perez followed up his strong performance at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, taking home his first victory since 2009! Adam Hadwin and Emiliano Grillo also finished in the top 10. Some familiar names in the Callaway family finished in the top 10 the following week at The RSM Classic. Jim Furyk and Patrick Reed finished T6 and T10, respectively.
Recently on The European Tour, the Race To Dubai champion was crowned. The season-long race, similar to the FedEx Cup on the PGA Tour, was awarded for the second time to Henrik Stenson. Henrik joins Rory McIlroy as the only 2-time winners of the title!
Callaway staff players will look to continue their early season success in the weeks to come.
