Callaway woods are some of the most innovative on the market, and have grown quite a following on the professional golf tours. It has four major lines of woods, each of which has its advocates in the pro ranks.

Phil Mickelson has Callaway FT Tour . Fairway Woods . Phil usually shoots his golf wood from the fairway to the green, and does it quite effectively. Callaway's FT series, apart from wood, contains irons and drivers. The two letters - FT - stand for Fusion Technology and reflect the blend of materials that goes into the production of these golf clubs. The company employs stainless steel and tungsten in the Callaway FT series. The FT Tour woods also have an interesting system of altering the weighting of the clubs, called Opti-Fit. This technology allows the players to change the weight settings of their woods easily and quickly, to customize the club for the slice or the fade in the swing.

Next line of Callaway Woods is the X Wood. An example of a professional PGA player using the X series is Ernie Els. The Callaway X Wood boast a bigger head volume than the FT series, and are fitted with a fairly shallow steel face. Callaway advise that the X series of wood allow to create higher ball speeds.

Rocco Mediate uses the FT-I Squareway 3-wood, part of Callaway's most forgiving woods series. It has an MOI that rivals that of a typical driver, and its squareway inertial design moves discretionary weight to the clubhead perimeter, helping it resist twisting.

What about the lady golfers? Annika Sorenstam has Callaway woods in her bag. She has been seen playing the 15-degree Callaway Tour X wood, and the 5-wood from the same series. She has won numerous competitions in the 2000-2009 decade using Callaway woods.

Cristie Kerr is another LPGA professional example. She has Callaway Big Bertha woods, which are made with a stainless steel clubhead, allowing the player to enjoy a combination of good forgiveness and notable ball speed. The Big Bertha is quite a popular model in the Callaway series
