Hot on the heels of unveiling its new Paradym family to great acclaim, Callaway has confirmed its line-up of DP World Tour staff professionals for 2023.
An exciting blend of up-and-coming young talent and experienced tournament-winning players, the #TeamCallaway roster includes a number of players who won on the circuit last season as well as as a number of new signings.
Here’s a look at the new faces…
Rasmus Højgaard – Three-time winner on the DP World Tour. Last victory was in 2021, winning the prestigious Omega European Masters in Switzerland.
Nicolai Højgaard – Two-time winner on the DP World Tour. Winner of last season’s Ras al Khaimah Championship by four shots.
Filippo Celli – The 22-year-old Italian turned professional at last year’s Italian Open. He was the leading amateur at last year’s 150th Open at St Andrews, finishing tied 47th.
Ockie Strydom – Already a winner on the DP World Tour, Ockie triumphed at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in December. He was previously an 11-time winner on the South African IGT Challenge Tour, and was runner-up 14 times on the Sunshine Tour, prior to a breakthrough victory in 2019.
