Callaway recently added 10 heavy hitters to its long-drive team, including Jamie Sadlowski, a two-time RE/MAX World Long Drive champion. Sadlowski, who's expected to use a 6.5-degree Callaway X Hot driver, clinched his first world title as a 20-year-old in 2008 with a drive of 418 yards in the final. His teammates include former world champs Carl Wolter and Mike Dobbyn. Callaway also signed on as the exclusive club sponsor of the RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship and Long Drivers of America.
