Callaway Becomes Official Golf Ball Provider to LET

4.45am 16th February 2011 - Sponsorship - This story was updated on Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Callaway has become the official golf ball supplier to the Ladies European Tour in a partnership that sees the new three-piece HX Diablo Tour golf balls used for all pre tournament practice sessions. In addition, Callaway will be sponsoring 20 players who will be putting the product in competitive play.

Alexandra Armas, Executive Director of the Ladies European Tour, commented: “The Ladies European Tour is delighted to be teaming up with Callaway, a company internationally renowned for superior quality products. Callaway provides equipment to the best tour professionals on the world’s biggest stages, of course not forgetting Annika Sorenstam, a European vice-captain at this year’s Solheim Cup.”

The new HX Diablo Tour provides an optimum combination of distance, feel and control in a three-piece performance golf ball. Featuring a Power Reaction Core with a softer centre that gets firmer towards the outer edge, it creates lower spin with the driver and more spin around the green for better control.

An advanced DuPont HPF inner cover increases ball speeds, promoting the maximum distance on all shots, whereas a soft ionomer outer cover produces an incredibly soft feel off the clubface, with increased spin on short-iron shots.

Callaway’s proprietary HEX Aerodynamics used on the outer cover reduces drag and promotes a more penetrating trajectory, preferred by golfers on Tour, for stability in all conditions, particularly wind.

Neil Howie, President of Callaway Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “Ladies golf is hugely important to us and this new long-term association with the Ladies European Tour underlines our commitment to support not only the Tour and its players, but ladies golf in general.

“This alliance establishes a firm partnership between Callaway and the Ladies European Tour and creates ongoing opportunities for collaboration.”
