Phil Mickelson’s Year with the Claret Jug Starts at Callaway HQ

by Jeff Skinner

Last we saw Phil Mickelson he was cavorting around the eighteenth green at Muirfield with his new best friend the Claret Jug.  When you’re the Champion Golfer of the Year you get to do that.

During the awards ceremony Phil thanked many people and made sure to thank the technicians at Callaway for setting him up with some great sticks.

Well, Phil pulled a bit of a surprise on the boys at Callaway as he showed up at their headquarters in Carlsbad, California with the Claret Jug to show his appreciation for all their hard work.

Yes, how cool is that.

Phil likes to take his awards on the road.  Remember this snap of him at Krispy Kreme in the Green Jacket?  He didn’t bring any donuts but the guys at Callaway didn’t mind seeing as they all got to hold the Claret Jug.

Here comes the Champion Golfer of the Year
