DAVID LEADBETTER “SCHOOLS” JASON KAPONO ON GAME OF GOLF

Event will raise funds for the Jennifer Ashleigh Children’s Charity

Attention: Assignment Editor, Photo Editor, Sports Editor CONCORD, ON, MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - March 24, 2008) - Callaway Golf Canada and David Leadbetter, one of the world's leading golf instructors, are taking Jason Kapono, the most accurate three-point shooter in NBA history, from the court to the course.

On Tuesday, March 25 in Toronto, Leadbetter will show Kapono how to bring his shooting accuracy to the game of golf at the launch of Callaway Golf Canada's 2008 CPGA Lesson Program - a partnership between Callaway Golf Canada and the Canadian Professional Golfers' Association. The CPGA Lesson Program offers a free 30-minute golf lesson with a registered and accredited CPGA professional for golfers who purchase a set of irons or driver from the 2008 Callaway Golf lineup.

David, the "World's No. 1 Golf Instructor" according to Golf Digest, will also share his words of wisdom on the golf swing and the state of the game in the heart of Toronto's financial district. For a donation to the Jennifer Ashleigh Children's Charity, whose mission is to raise funds for seriously ill children and their families, a lucky few onlookers will also have a chance for a swing lesson with the legend.
