Callaway Pauses Relationship with Phil Mickelson
The golf equipment empire Callaway has announced that it is pausing its relationship with Phil Mickelson.
The announcement came on Friday, just a short time after Workday announced that they were dropping Mickelson completely.
“Callaway does not condone Phil Mickelson’s comments and we were very disappointed in his choice of words – they in no way reflect our values or what we stand for as a company. Phil has since apologized and we know he regrets how he handled recent events. We recognize his desire to take some time away from the game and respect that decision. At this time, we have agreed to pause our partnership and will re-evaluate our ongoing relationship at a later date,” a Callaway spokesperson said in a statement released to Golf Channel.
Mickelson has been with Callaway since 2004.
He now has lost all three of his main sponsors within a week.
