CARLSBAD, Calif., May 20, 2024 ~ On Sunday, Xander Schauffele made history as he clinched his first major win at the 2024 PGA Championship. The Callaway Staff Professional set a new record for the lowest score in major championship history with an impressive 21-under, thanks to rounds of 62-68-68-65 at Valhalla Golf Club.

Schauffele's victory was sealed with a birdie on the final hole, solidifying his wire-to-wire win. This was not the first time he had shot a 62 in a major, as he also achieved this feat during the opening round of the 2023 U.S. Open.

The equipment that helped Schauffele secure this historic win included a Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Driver and a Chrome Tour Golf Ball. His winning setup also featured a Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Fairway Wood, Apex UW, Apex TCB Irons, JAWS Raw Wedge, and an Odyssey Putter.

One of the key factors in Schauffele's success was his use of Callaway's Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Driver. This driver boasts an industry-first Ai Smart Face that optimizes performance by utilizing swing dynamics from thousands of real golfers. It comes as no surprise that this driver is currently the #1 driver in the U.S. market for Q1 according to Golf Datatech.

The Chrome Tour Golf Ball also played a crucial role in Schauffele's victory. With its fast ball speeds and exceptional greenside control, it provided him with total performance from tee-to-green. This is evident in his rankings on the PGA TOUR this year – 2nd in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green, 2nd in Strokes Gained: Total and 8th in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee. The success of Callaway's new Chrome Tour lineup has contributed to their highest share ever in the premium golf ball category.

Schauffele's Odyssey Putter, with its mallet shape, was also a key component in his win. It helped him make crucial putts throughout the weekend and has been a top performer on the PGA TOUR, making it the #1 Putter at the PGA Championship and on Tour. It is also the #1 Putter in the U.S. market for Q1 according to Golf Datatech.

Since joining Callaway and Odyssey's Staff in 2018, Schauffele has won six PGA TOUR events and a Gold Medal in 2021. This impressive track record has earned him the #2 spot in the Official World Golf Rankings.
