Interesting but I doubt it. Nike seems to be invested in their own thing right now and Callaway seems to be on the uptick.

I don't think this would happen due to Callaway's new releases and it seems as though they're going strong right now. If it did happen though, that would be pretty interesting.

Driver- Cleveland DST Launcher, 10.5*

Fairway- PING Anser, 14.5*

Hybrid- Titleist 910 H, 21* 

Irons- Mizuno JPX 825 Pro Irons, 4-GW

Wedges- SCOR 4161, 53* and 57* 

Putter- One from my collection.

Doubtful, Cally has invested a TON of money in marketing to build the brand.

In The Bag
Driver: TaylorMade Tour Issue Superfast 2.0 LCG w/ USPG Black Ops Pearl X 
Strong 3 wood: Taylormade SLDR TS 13* with Aldila NV 75X
3 Hybrid: Adams Super LSP 18* (bent to 17*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4 Hybrid: Adams Super LSP 20* (bent to 21*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
5-7I : Tour Issued Adams CB2 w/ Dynamic Gold Tour issue S400 hardstepped 1x
8-GW: Tour Issued Adams CB1 w/ Dynamic Gold S400 hardstepped 1x

SW: 56* Cleveland CG12 (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
LW: 60* Cleveland CG12 (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
Putter: Mannkrafted Widebody Rattler 34", 71* lie, 4* loft

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

currently nothing could be farther from the truth... according to a very high up insider at CG... But I am sure if someone were to tweet and ask Harry Arnette he will give an on the record statement...

I don't know about that... Callaway is reporting a raise in sales and their first profits for over four years...

Why would a company on the rise want to sell out? Theyre finally doing something right

Sure that worker wasn't just playing a joke? Can't see that happening as many have said too many things happening for the good in the Callaway camp, with better best year in who knows when??? Cally looking better and better all the time and with New APEX iron line and from what everyone has been talking about the New Big Bertha or should I say "Driver B" which will blow everyone's mind with crazy tech..... being able to raise and lower CG( at least that's what Phil said on GC. Just too much good happening for Cally right now to sell, plus they have that 5 year plan to overtake #1 Taylormade.....

    Just got fitted for Mizuno MP15 irons and I can tell you they are fantastic sticks ! I was playing Mizuno MP60's for 8 years so it was time to get current . We came to a mutual agreement that the KBS Tour stiff shaft worked best with these irons. I set them up with 2 degrees upright and so far I have been hitting my irons much more solid and the misses are much better. I highly recommend these irons.
