Englishman Jordan Smith, one of the rising young stars of European golf, has today been confirmed as a Callaway Staff Professional, using a full bag of Callaway and Odyssey product, including Chrome Soft Golf Ball.
Jordan (26), already a winner on the European Tour – he triumphed at the Porsche European Open in 2017 – did not take up the sport until he was 12, but went on to play in the 2014 Walker Cup, before turning pro in the same year.
His win at the Porsche European Open was also Jordan’s ticket to play in the US PGA Championships where he tied 9th, the highest placed European player. In 2018, he was also 3rd at The British Masters, and 43rd in the Race to Dubai rankings.
Peter Harrison, Callaway’s EMEA Director of Tour Relations, said: “Jordan is one of European golf’s rising stars and he has already demonstrated his tournament-winning pedigree by successfully competing at the highest level. We are excited to see what the next chapter of his career brings as part of our family, and have full access to our products and support teams.”
Jordan added: “Callaway is a huge brand in the world of golf and has a rich pedigree of successfully supporting the careers of young players on the European Tour. The 2019 product line is fantastic and I’m genuinely excited to see how my game develops this year and beyond.”
