PGA TOUR star Abraham Ancer and LPGA major winner Yuka Saso officially joined Callaway Golf as Staff Professionals.
Ancer will play Callaway Woods, an Odyssey Putter, and will wear a Callaway hat in competition. He 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.”
Saso won the 2021 U.S. Women’s Open, capturing the major championship in a thrilling playoff finish. Now at just 20 years old, she has already won 3 events since turning professional in 2019 and is currently 8th in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings. Yuka will make her Callaway debut later this month at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions on the LPGA Tour.
“I’m so happy to join Callaway, and to work with their outstanding Tour team as I start the next phase of my career with their equipment,” Saso said. “From their drivers to their golf balls, the performance really stands out to me in testing and out on the course. I feel confident that this is the best setup for my game, and I’m looking forward to a great year.”
