Brand loyalty is important in the game of golf. And for those high-level amateurs joining the professional ranks, sticking with the brand whose equipment has helped to ascend to the top of the game is even more important.
Recent college graduates Cameron Wilson, Talor Gooch and Joey Garber all stayed with their favorites by officially joining Team Callaway as they begin the professional careers.
Gooch, who recently wrapped up a career at Oklahoma State and made waves for his dramatic 30-foot putt in the Cowboys' semifinal playoff win over Stanford earlier this month.
While at OSU, Gooch had six Top 10s and a tie for third in his final seven college events.
Garber wrapped up his career with the Georgia Bulldogs where he rose to No. 5 in Golfweek's individual rankings.
Wilson, who hails from Connecticut, helped Stanford to the NCAA semifinals and won the individual championship after a stellar amateur and collegiate career.
“I’m extremely excited to join the Callaway Golf family, as they have some of the youngest and brightest players in the game,” Wilson said to Callaway. “I’m eager to started on my professional career and having Callaway behind me will only add to my confidence.”
