Callaway have announced two important new Staff Professional signings, with rising stars Nicolai and Rasmus Højgaard joining its 2023 team on the DP World Tour.
The high-flying 21-year-old Danish twins, both already multiple winners on the DP World Tour, will use a full bag of Callaway and Odyssey products, including the newly-launched Paradym Driver, and the company’s Chrome Soft Golf Ball, featuring proprietary Precision Technology.
The brothers made history in 2021 when they both won in consecutive weeks on Tour. Seven days after Rasmus picked up his third DP World Tour title at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland, Nicolai became the DS Automobiles Italian Open Champion.
Golf, and winning, has been a key part of Nicolai and Rasmus’ lives from an early age, both competing in the ‘aged 10-and-younger’ category at the Danish National Championship, and claiming first and second places.
In 2016, Rasmus went on to become Danish Amateur Champion and, two years later, Nicolai became the European Amateur Champion. They were also both members of the Danish side that won the European Boys’ Team Championship in 2017, and competed for Europe in the 2018 Junior Ryder Cup.
Peter Harrison, Director of Tour Relations, Callaway Golf EMEA, said: “Rasmus and Nicolai join us at a hugely significant time in their careers. They are undoubtedly both superstars of the future, already proving they are born winners, and their Tour victories in recent years are just the beginning.
“We are thrilled to welcome them both to #TeamCallaway and offer them the very best equipment and technology to take their games to the next level, whether that’s on the DP World Tour, competing in golf’s Majors, or playing in future Ryder Cups.”
Rasmus said: “Testing my new Callaway equipment during the winter has gone really well, and I can’t wait to start the 2023 DP World Tour season as a member of #TeamCallaway”
Nicolai added: “I’m super excited to put the new 2023 Callaway and Odyssey products into play this week as I tee it up in Abu Dhabi for Team Continental Europe at the Hero Cup”
