Golfer Phil Mickelson, who plays in the LIV Golf league, recently told everyone that he's not working with Callaway Golf anymore. He had been using and promoting their golf stuff since 2004. This happened because Mickelson said some things about the Saudi government that Callaway didn't like, and they decided to take a break from working together.

Mickelson is known for his controversial statements, which caused him more problems than he expected. After that, Mickelson took a break from the usual golf games and joined a new league called LIV Golf, which is supported by the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF).

When Phil Mickelson decided to join LIV Golf, a lot of people had strong reactions. Many were disappointed with the choice made by this experienced golfer, but Mickelson clearly had his own ideas and reasons for the decision.

Despite everything, there will be no bad blood between them, and Mickelson still has a great opinion of the people inside Callaway Golf.

Phil also had only words of praise for the Chrome Tour X ball.

"I am no longer sponsored by Callaway Golf but have maintained a great relationship with everyone there," Mickelson wrote on social media.
"The new Chrome Tour X ball is the fastest ball off the driver, most spin around the greens,and most consistent aerodynamics of any ball on the market.

Trying it can’t hurt and I know you’ll see the same thing."

It will be interesting to follow the future of this great golfer and find out what plans he has for the future. We do not doubt that Mickelson will find new sponsors and achieve some new collaborations in the coming period.

His name is widely known in the golf world, and certainly, many brands would love to see Mickelson as their ambassador.
