Callaway Golf has announced a further brace of additions to its European Tour staff following the signings of Italy’s Guido Migliozzi and Spain’s Adrian Otaegui.
The two new player announcements follow last week’s signings of Matt Wallace, Oliver Fisher and Jorge Campillo to Callaway and Odyssey equipment contracts.
Migliozzi (pictured above) earned his place on the tour in 2019 after graduating from qualifying school, and enjoyed a sensational start to his rookie European Tour season, winning both the Magical Kenya Open and the Belgian Knockout. The 22-year-old from Vicenza has a range of Callaway gear in his bag, including the new MAVRIK Sub Zero Driverand Fairway woods, Apex pro irons, JAWS wedges, an Odyysey Toulon San Diego putter and Chrome Soft X balls.
Migliozzi said: “Callaway is one of the biggest golf brands in the world and has a great reputation on Tour. I’m looking forward to putting my new bag of clubs into competitive play as I start the next stage of my life on Tour, and build on last season’s successes.”
Otaegui, 27, who won the 2017 Paul Lawrie Matchplay and the 2018 Belgian Knockout, will now play a full bag of Callaway and Odyssey products, including the Epic Flash Sub Zero driver, Apex Pro irons, JAWS wedges and a Stroke Lab putter. He will also wear apparel from US fashion lifestyle brand TravisMathew, which Callaway also owns.
Otaegui said: “I’m starting the 2020 European Tour season with high expectations, and I’m excited to use some of the just-launched Callaway and Odyssey products, and work with Callaway’s Tour team, which is one of the best in the business.”
Peter Harrison, Callaway’s EMEA Director of Tour Relations, commented: “Guido exploded onto the European Tour with a double-win in his first season. He has a very bright future and we anticipate big things as he continues to develop his career with our full support. Our company has a strong reputation of working alongside some of Spain’s up-and-coming Tour stars in the past, including the likes of Ignacio Elvira, Pablo Larrazábal and Alvaro Quiros, and Adrian, who is already a proven tournament winner, is a welcome addition to our team.”
Sergio Garcia, who signed for Callaway in January 2018, is no longer contracted to the company and was seen making his return to action in Abu Dhabi earlier this month playing with a mixture of TaylorMade and Ping clubs and wearing an adidas hat. A spokesman for Callaway said: “We can confirm Callaway did not renew its agreement with Sergio Garcia for the 2020 season. We parted on great terms and the option for Sergio to carry Callaway equipment in the future remains.”
