Ely Callaway Jr. founded Callaway Golf in 1982. Since then, the company has been on the cutting edge of club technology and has grown into a household name. Callaway has expanded its product lines by purchasing Odyssey Golf in 1997 and Spalding Golf in 2003.
Callaway introduced the Big Bertha line of drivers in 1991. It was one of the first drivers with an oversized club head designed to increase distance and be more forgiving on poorly hit shots. Currently, Callaway offers the Big Bertha Diablo for amateurs along with its professional line of drivers.
With the purchase of Ben Hogan irons in 2003, Callaway was able to improve on the quality of its forged irons. Callaway offers several models of irons, depending on the strengths and skill level of the golfer.
Odyssey putters are among the best putters in the world. The Odyssey brand was purchased 1997, bolstering the Callaway lineup of clubs by offering a wide selection. Different types of blade and mallet putters are available along with regular and long shafts. Callaway's Odyssey brand released the 2-ball putter in 2001 and sparked a revolution in the industry. The design gives the appearance of three balls at address to aid alignment.
Callaway has been at the forefront of innovation and it's safe to assume they will continue to improve all their product lines.
