“Our golf sponsorship on Sky Sports has created a real buzz in the industry, as well as for the new Big Bertha Driver,” said Neil Howie, President and Managing Director of Callaway EMEA.
He added: “The campaign also recognises the global importance and influence of social media channels and allows our own consumers to become the stars alongside their Callaway Staff Professional heroes.
