Zhang joined Callaway’s NEXT program for elite junior and college players at the age of 13, and since then she has played with a full bag of our equipment in competition. In 2022, Rose entered a new agreement with Callaway, officially becoming our first ever NIL Amateur Staff Player.
She turned professional last Friday shortly after becoming the first woman ever to win back-to-back NCAA Individual Championships. On Tuesday, she officially extended her agreement with Callaway, and today she could become the first woman since 1951 to win on the LPGA in their professional debut. Here's a look at what's in her bag this week.
“Callaway equipment has played such a big part in my success, and I know that this is the right decision for me,” Zhang said earlier this week. “I’ve used their clubs and golf ball in every one of my wins since I was a junior, and that gives me so much confidence when I’m out on the course."
Rose immediately switched to her Paradym Triple Diamond Driver at the beginning of the year after picking up 3 MPH in testing, and she's played a Chrome Soft X Golf Ball since joining Callaway. She's had a tremendous week off the tee, hitting 38 of 42 fairways through her first 3 rounds. Paradym continues to perform at golf's biggest events, and it's the most played driver family on the LPGA this week with 37 in play.
