Callaway Golf Company (NYSE:ELY) has extended its relationship with Phil Mickelson. Mickelson, currently the No. 2 player in the world, will play a full complement of Callaway Golf equipment. Terms of the agreement are not being disclosed.

“Phil has been an integral member of the Callaway Golf family for several years and together we’ve achieved great success,” said George Fellows, President and CEO, Callaway Golf. “He’s clearly one of the most talented golfers ever to play the game and we’re proud to have our equipment in his hands as he continues towards the World Golf Hall of Fame.”

Mickelson, 38, enters Augusta with serious momentum. With victories in two recent events, he took firm control of the No. 2 world ranking and comes to Magnolia Lane as a clear favorite. He’s looking for his third Green Jacket after victories in 2004 and 2006, and his fourth major championship overall.

“I can’t imagine playing this game without Callaway management’s support behind me and Callaway’s equipment in my bag,” said Phil Mickelson. “Both have contributed to my success and I’m planning on their support throughout the rest of my professional career.”

Mickelson currently plays the Callaway FT-9 Driver, Big Bertha Diablo Fairway Woods, Tour Authentic X-Prototype Irons and X-Forged Irons, an Odyssey White Hot XG #9 Putter and Tour i Series golf balls.
