Being completely honest I avoided Callaway clubs and well everything for years because of Phil. Silly I know, but I never jived with him or just how he is and because of that avoided all things Callaway. It wasn't until I bought a XR16 driver that I started to look at their clubs more seriously.

I felt the same way as you. It wasn’t until this year that I was selected as a tester for the Paradym irons that I changed my mind on Callaway. I also avoided Nike because of Tiger. Silly, yes. However, while stationed in San Diego, I attended the Farmers PGA event at Torrey Pines several times. I witnessed two events which led to my view on Phil and Tiger. One was Phil berating a volunteer in front of everyone. Plus, he always seemed very fake. The other was Tiger swearing at a father in front of his son. The dad had waited at the practice green after the round. When Tiger was done and leaving the green the dad asked for an autograph for his son on his birthday. Tiger instead of giving the autograph or declining politely, he just started swearing and berating the gentleman in front of his son. It was not the first time I witnessed Tiger be less than pleasant. So, while great golfers I never was a fan of either. 

Play like a champion today!

Phil lost my respect when he blindsided Watson in the Ryder cup press conference

Yes, that is arguably his lowest/dumbest/least classy move... kind of forgot about that one 😑.

I think I remember Phil playing PING in college, then Yonex, Titleist and Callaway.

He was a master with the Eye 2 SW & LW.

After retiring from the PGA of America, I did some demo days and club fitting for TaylorMade, Callaway, Titleist, Ping, Cobra, Srixon and Mizuno.

His post on Twitter was gentlemanly and kind…he had immense praise for the company in general and was glowing over the Chrome golf balls.  

The least he could do after they paid him millions all those years...

Now come on, to be fair, they made millions all those years with him playing/endorsing that ball.  You know, the CS may very well be the "ball the changed the ball", but it was Phil's moves that made it a club house name 😆.
