Callaway Golf adds three PGA Tour pros to staff roster

Attention: Assignment Editor, News Editor, Sports Editor CONCORD, ONTARIO, NEWS RELEASE--(Marketwire - Jan. 16, 2008) - Callaway Golf Company today announced it has reached agreements in principle with three PGA Tour players to join Callaway's roster of staff golf professionals. J.J. Henry, Fredrik Jacobsen and Cameron Beckman plan to play with a full complement of Callaway golf equipment.

"We currently have a stellar staff of endorsers and with the addition of Henry, Jacobson and Beckman, we're adding depth to an already solid group," said Nick Raffaele, vice president, sports marketing, Callaway Golf. "Pair them with our 2007 in-season additions of Ernie Els, Anton Haig and Nick Flanagan - I'd say Callaway Golf products are represented pretty well on Tour."

In addition to the staff signings, South African Rory Sabbatini has been signed to play with the new Callaway Golf Tour ix golf ball, Callaway's latest technological advancement in the golf ball category, scheduled to be released to the public later this year.

Americans Henry and Beckman had two and three top-ten PGA finishes in 2007 respectively. Jacobsen, who hails from Sweden, ended 2007 with five top-10 finishes last year, and Sabbatini rounded out the year with 10.

Callaway Golf plans to sign additional players to use its golf balls on Tour this year.
