Phil Mickelson at The Masters

Callaway Staff Player and three-times Masters champion Phil Mickelson came up just short in his bid for a fourth Green Jacket this weekend at Augusta, falling two shots shy of a playoff that ultimately determined the winner. Displaying a dazzling array of shots on Saturday, Phil thrilled the Augusta patrons with a 6-under-par 66, including a spectacular flop shot from the back of the 15th green that will be remembered for a long time to come.

In Phil’s bag: RAZR Fit Driver (9.5º) ; Big Bertha Diablo 3-Wood (15º); RAZR Fit 5-Wood (18º); RAZR X Muscle Back Irons (4-PW); X-Series JAWS Wedges (52º, 60º & 64º); HEX Black Tour Golf Ball and an Odyssey White Hot XG ‘PM’ Blade Putter.

Furyk & Jacobson have solid Masters
Callaway Driver & Ball Staff Player Jim Furyk continued to rely on Callaway equipment (namely the RAZR Fit Driver and the HEX Black Tour Golf Ball) as he steadily returns to form in 2012. This week, Furyk finished a strong solo 11th at Augusta.

Fredrik Jacobson
(the answer to our #RAZRMasters Twitter competition!) had a gutsy week at the Masters. After an opening-round 76 had Freddie staring at a possible missed cut on Friday, the Swede fought back and carded a second-round 68 and third round 70. He finished with a 74 on Sunday and tied for 19th place. Freddie re-shafted his Callaway Big Bertha Diablo 3-wood with his Miyazaki Kusala gamer shaft at 43 ½ inches. He had tried another shaft at 44 inches but it felt too loose and was going left and right. The Miyazaki was re-built at 43½ inches, which is his normal length.

Gary Player and Arnold Palmer

Gary Player fine-tunes RAZR Fit for ceremonial first tee shot
On Thursday morning,  Gary Player made a little adjustment to his RAZR Fit Driver prior to kicking off the Masters with the ceremonial opening tee shot alongside Jack Nicklaus and fellow Callaway Icon Arnold Palmer (who also used the new RAZR Fit Driver). Mr Player worked with Callaway tour reps and got a higher lofted club head and adjusted the cog to hit the ball higher and help attain his desired draw ball flight. He loved the club so much that his caddy came to the Callaway Tour Truck on Wednesday to confirm the longer distance and wanted to get a RAZR Fit 3-Wood to match the driver.

So that’s it for another exciting Masters.
