Phil Mickelson follows Tiger Woods by splitting from a long-term partner in 2024.

LIV Golf star Phil Mickelson has confirmed he has parted ways with Callaway Golf having played and endorsed their golf equipment since 2004.

Following Mickelson’s 2022 remarks in which he referred to the Saudi government as “scary motherf*s” in an interview with golf biographer Alan Shipnuck, Callaway decided to immediately halt their relationship.

Mickelson also said at the time he wanted to use Saudi Arabian money in the game as ‘leverage’ to get things done how he saw fit on the PGA Tour.
