PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. — Two weeks after Phil Mickelson put a Callaway RAZR Fit Xtreme driver in play at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and won by four shots, the four-time major winner arrived at the Northern Trust Open with two new Callaway woods in the bag on Wednesday -- an X Hot Prototype 3-wood and a RAZR Fit Xtreme 5-wood.
Mickelson started working with the X Hot Prototype 3-wood two weeks ago during the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open but went back to his TaylorMade RocketBallz 13-degree (bent to 11.5) shortly thereafter.
After working with the fairway wood over the last few weeks, including on Tuesday at the Ely Callaway Performance Center, he decided to put it back in the bag.
The RAZR Fit Xtreme 5-wood is a brand new addition this week and would replace the Titleist 980F 5-wood Mickelson's been playing of late.
Assuming Mickelson puts both fairway woods in play on Thursday, he would have 13 Callaway clubs in the bag to go along with an Odyssey putter.
