Callaway Golf Teams Up With New Diablo Brand Ambassador Manny Osborne-Paradis

CONCORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 5, 2010) - Callaway Golf today announced a formal relationship between its Diablo brand and all-or-nothing alpine skier and Olympian Manuel "Manny" Osborne-Paradis.

Osborne-Paradis is the first Canadian member of Team Diablo, a collection of intrepid Callaway staffers from around the globe who have been chosen for their passion and determination in sport to represent Callaway's Diablo brand of golf equipment.

"Callaway is thrilled to welcome Manny, one of the world's greatest downhill skiers, into the Diablo family," said Preben Ganzhorn, Director of Marketing, Callaway Golf. "Manny embodies the spirit of Diablo in the courageous, daring and competitive way he approaches all aspects of his life."

North Vancouver-born Manny is a charter member of the 'Canadian Cowboys', a new breed of Canadian ski racer. His devotion, lack of fear and natural talent have led him to multiple World Cup Downhill and Super-G victories. Manny also gives back to the sport as co-creator of a yearly youth ski camp in Whistler, BC.

"With hobbies as diverse as surfing, mountain biking and golf, 26-year-old Manny's devotion to sports, the outdoors, and his fun-loving personality make him the perfect ambassador for Callaway's no-holds-barred Diablo brand," said Ganzhorn.

In his first role as Diablo ambassador, Manny will travel to Europe this summer to host the Canadian winner of the Diablo Edge contest, which officially opens today. The winner will receive a seven-day once-in-a-lifetime golf experience, including a VIP Callaway Hospitality Experience at the 2010 Open Championship at St. Andrews, in addition to rounds at some of Ireland's best courses. The winner will also take home a bevy of Diablo Edge gear including a full set of golf clubs, a golf bag, golf balls and more. Full contest entry details are available here:

"I am thrilled to be a part of Callaway's Diablo brand. The no-holds-barred attitude Diablo embodies is a perfect fit with the way I approach not just a ski race, but all parts of my life," said Osborne-Paradis.
