Abraham Ancer signs for Callaway as PGA Tour staff player

Abraham Ancer has joined Callaway's professional staff in a multi-year agreement. He will play Callaway woods and an Odyssey putter and will wear a Callaway hat in competition.

Ancer, 30, has emerged as one of the top players in the world over the past few years. In 2021, he earned his first PGA Tour win at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

He also finished ninth in the FedEx Cup Standings, all while using a Callaway Epic Speed Driver and an Odyssey Putter.

The Mexican is currently 17th in the Official World Golf Rankings and in fourth place on the International Presidents Cup standings. Abraham will make his Callaway debut this week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

"I’m excited to officially join Callaway, and after playing their equipment over the past several years, I feel really confident about making the switch," Ancer said.

"The performance from their drivers is always impressive, their putters are outstanding, and I’ve developed a strong relationship with their tour team. This is a great fit for me, and I can’t wait to get this new year started."

Ancer adds to Callaway’s impressive momentum on the PGA Tour. World No. 1 Jon Rahm won the US Open and Phil Mickelson made major history in his PGA Championship victory.

Annika Sorenstam won the US Senior Women’s Open and Xander Schauffele captured the Men’s Gold Medal in Tokyo. In total, 11 different staff professionals won on the PGA Tour.

Callaway continues to be the No. 1 driver brand on major tours worldwide and Odyssey is the No. 1 putter on every major tour.

Yuka Saso, who won the 2021 US Women’s Open at just 19 years old, has also joined the Callaway roster on a multi-year agreement. She has already won 3 events since turning professional in 2019 and is currently eighth in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings.

Saso will make her Callaway debut later this month at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions on the LPGA Tour.
