22-year-old Callaway staffer Yuka Saso made history earlier today, becoming the youngest player ever to win two U.S. Women's Opens. It's also the second major win in the past 14 days for Paradym Ai Smoke Drivers and Chrome Golf Balls, following Xander Schauffele's win at the PGA Championship. Plus, it's another major trophy for Odyssey, the No. 1 Putter on Tour. 

Saso's equipment setup is all Callaway and Odyssey. Take a look at what she used to post an impressive final round 2-under 68 in her unforgettable performance. Here is her full bio on Callaway.com

The Chrome Golf Balls continue to set the new gold standard in performance, including at major championships. Saso used a Chrome Tour X Golf Ball to navigate around the incredibly difficult Lancaster Country Club layout. This Tour ball is designed for the best players who want speed and ultimate control. Callaway has engineered Chrome Tour X to provide outstanding distance, workability, and spin so you can experience your best performance from tee-to-green.

Saso's victory comes just two weekends after Schauffele's final round 65 and his first major win at Valhalla. Schauffele plays a Chrome Tour that's built for players who want the best in distance and feel. Chrome Tour is engineered for outstanding performance with exceptional speed, consistent flight, incredible spin, and greenside control.

Callaway is the No. 1 Driver, Fairway Wood, and Irons Brand at the U.S. Women's Open. The No. 1 Driver position is led by the Paradym Ai Smoke family, as players like Saso, Andrea Lee, and Minjee Lee all have one of these models in the bag. Schauffele gamed a Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Driver as well in his major victory. 

The new Paradym Ai Smoke Drivers feature an industry-first Ai Smart Face that promotes multiple sweet spots across the entire face. This face design optimizes driver performance using swing dynamics from thousands of real golfers. These swing dynamics, or Swing Code, consist of swing speed, club delivery, and face orientation just prior to impact.

Odyssey continues to be the top performing putter brand at major championships and this week was the No.1 Putter at the U.S. Women's Open with 64 in the field (29 more than the nearest competitor). Remarkably, 26 players in the field are using either an Ai-ONE or Ai-ONE Milled Putter, including Saso. These putters feature Ai-ONE inserts that create more consistent ball speeds across the face, even on off-center hits, leaving putts closer to the hole.

Ultimately, 5 players who finished T6 or better at the championship used an Odyssey model at Lancaster Country Club. Xander Schauffele used an Odyssey at the PGA Championship, and Callaway has been the No.1 Putter Brand at every major this year.
