Since turning professional back in 1992 American left-hander Phil Mickelson has enjoyed an illustrious career on the PGA and European Tour, with over 50 tournament victories under his belt – including five major championships. Mickelson is a three-time Masters champion with titles in 2004, 2006 and most recently, 2010. Regarded as highly competitive and aggressive in his attack of the ball on the golf course, one look at Phil Mickelson's 'what's in the bag?' and you will see the 43-year-old uses Callaway equipment.  He used the  X Hot Pro Deep 3 wood to great effect off the tee to win the 2013 Open Championship at Muirfield. At the start of the 2014 season Phil changed much of his equipment putting in the Alpha Big Bertha driver and Apex irons. Mickelson is said to earn a considerable sum more from endorsements than prize money and is thought to be the second-highest paid athlete in the sporting world.
