With Rory McIlroy jumping ship to Nike, the last thing Callaway need is Phil Mickelson unhappy with his equipment. 

Hkg7974145 Yet that seems to be case as Leftie was spotted in Mission Hills last week with a TaylorMade RocketBallz 3-wood in his bag. He arrived in China with the club and explained to senior company official during a Callaway photoshoot that his current equipment would not be suitable for the event. 

Mickelson then removed his Callaway Big Bertha Diablo 3-wood with the blessing of Callaway's senior vice president of marketing, Harry Arnett.

Mickelson’s dilemma was that he needed a club that could go 290 yards off the tee (his Diablo fairway goes 275 his Razr driver goes 305) to negotiate tee shots at Mission Hills and still reach par 5’s at the event.

Arnett explained to Phil that although a prototype fairway was being readied it would not be available to him for several weeks and that he should “play whatever you want” to get a victory. Mickelson then produced the TaylorMade RocketBallz 3-wood complete with a matt black finish to attempt to deflect any attention.
