Cameron Wilson became the latest high-profile amateur to announce a new equipment deal on the eve of his first professional start. The 2014 NCAA individual winner and Stanford University graduate agreed to term on a multi-year deal with Callaway Golf that will see him use the company's clubs, ball, bag, and wear a Callaway hat.
"I’m extremely excited to join the Callaway Golf family, as they have some of the youngest and brightest players in the game,” Wilson said. “I’m eager to started on my professional career and having Callaway behind me will only add to my confidence.”
Along with winning the NCAA individual title, Wilson recorded three wins, 11 top-10s and a 69.76 stroke average (second lowest in program history behind teammate Patrick Rodgers) during his senior season at Stanford. He was also a finalist for the Ben Hogan Award, given to the most outstanding player in college golf.
Wilson plans to make his pro debut this week in his home state of Connecticut at the Travelers Championship, and has already received additional sponsors' exemptions for the John Deere Classic and Frys.com Open.
