Abraham Ancer Joins Callaway Golf Tour Staff

After Winning In 2021 With Callaway and Odyssey Equipment, The PGA TOUR Star Adds to Callaway's Elite Professional Staff

CARLSBAD, Calif., January 4, 2021 - Today, Callaway Golf (NYSE: ELY), an unrivaled tech-enabled golf company delivering leading golf equipment, apparel, and entertainment, officially announced that Abraham Ancer has joined their Professional Staff in a multi-year agreement. He will play Callaway Woods, an Odyssey Putter, and will wear a Callaway hat in competition.

Born in Texas and raised in Mexico, Ancer has been one of the top players in the world over the past several years. In 2021, he earned his first PGA TOUR win at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and finished 9th in the FedEx Cup Standings, all while using a Callaway Epic Speed Driver and an Odyssey Putter. He's currently 17th in the Official World Golf Rankings, and Abraham will make his Callaway debut this week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

"I'm excited to officially join Callaway, and after playing their equipment over the past several years, I feel really confident about making the switch," Ancer said. "The performance from their drivers is always impressive, their putters are outstanding, and I've developed a strong relationship with their Tour Team. This is a great fit for me, and I can't wait to get this new year started."

"Abraham Ancer is a global superstar in golf, and we're proud to have him join our team," said Tim Reed, SVP of Sports Marketing for Callaway Golf. "He's already won on TOUR and moved near the top of the world rankings with our products, and we're ready to help take his game to the next level."

Ancer adds to Callaway's impressive momentum on Tour. Among their highlights last year, World #1 Jon Rahm won the U.S. Open, Phil Mickelson made major history in his PGA Championship victory, Annika Sorenstam won the U.S. Senior Women's Open, Xander Schauffele captured the Men's Gold Medal in Tokyo, and 11 different Staff Professionals won on the PGA TOUR. Callaway continues to be the #1 Driver Brand on major Tours worldwide, and Odyssey is the #1 Putter on every major Tour.
