Francesco Molinari, the reigning Open Champion and 2018 Race to Dubai winner, has joined Callaway Golf’s tour staff ahead of his appearance in the PGA Tour’s Arnold Palmer Invitational.

A complete line up of Callaway equipment will feature in the world No.10’s bag for the event, including an Epic Flash Sub Zero driver, an Epic Flash Sub Zero fairway wood, Apex MB 18 Irons, Mack Daddy 4 wedges, an Odyssey Toulon Madison putter and a Chrome Soft X ball.

“I am joining Callaway because I’m so impressed by their equipment,” said Molinari. “More than anything, I’m looking forward to playing the new Epic Flash driver and the Chrome Soft X ball. The ball speed gains that I’m getting from the driver are unbelievable. And this golf ball is the best one that I’ve ever played. The performance from tee-to-green, especially the feel and control, is exactly what I want.”

Neil Howie, Callaway’s Managing Director, said: “We are so proud to welcome another European major winner to Callaway, joining Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson and Danny Willett. Francesco was testing equipment from various manufacturers over the winter break, and we are therefore incredibly excited to see what he can achieve having chosen to use Callaway and Odyssey products. If his performance gains in testing are an indication of what is to come, 2019 is set to be another stellar season for one of Europe’s finest golfers.”
