We want to take a moment to congratulate Callaway staffer Tom Watson on his final appearance at Augusta. In one of the greatest careers in golf history, Tom won this event twice, posted 15 top-10 finishes and played in the tournament 43 times.

He’s one of Augusta’s true icons, and here is what he is playing in his competitive round at the tournament.
- Great Big Bertha Driver (10.5*)
- Great Big Bertha Fairway Wood (15*)
- XR 16 Fairway Wood (19*)
- Apex Utility Irons (3-4)
- Apex Pro Irons (5-PW) (Did you know we’re the No. 1 iron brand in golf?)
- MD3 Milled Wedges (52*, 56*)
- Odyssey Versa #7 Black 90 Putter
- A New Chrome Soft Truvis Golf Ball
Watson’s been playing his Great Big Bertha Driver and Fairway Wood all year long, and he put in the XR 16 Fairway Wood specifically for Augusta to give him a high ball flight that he could use to hit into the greens on the course’s Par-5s.
He’s also been playing the new Chrome Soft Truvis Red and White Ball all year long, and he’s told us that the Truvis technology even helps him on putting because he can see how much spin he has off the putter head.
We applaud Tom on the end of his phenomenal career at Augusta. It’s an honor to have him on our staff.
