Title: Callaway Golf Extends Big Bertha Heavenwood Hybrid Line; Forgiveness Goes Deeper in the Bag with 6H and 7H Models

Date: 10/18/2005 6:18:00 PM

  CARLSBAD, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Oct. 18, 2005—Callaway Golf
Company (NYSE:ELY) today announced the addition of two new models to
its line of Big Bertha(R) Heavenwood(R) Hybrids, the easier-to-hit
golf clubs that combine the accuracy and control of an iron with the
increased distance of a fairway wood. Now golfers can add the new
Heavenwood Hybrid 6H and 7H models to their arsenal to extend the
legendary forgiveness of Big Bertha even further into their bags. The
Heavenwood Hybrid 6H (29 degrees) and 7H (32 degrees) will be
available at retail beginning November 1.

  The original Heavenwood Hybrids were designed and created to
benefit the millions of golfers who struggled to hit long irons and
wanted an alternative to the highly-lofted fairway woods that
traditionally have replaced them. The Heavenwood Hybrids provided the
answer. Now Callaway Golf(R) offers the same solution to golfers who
are looking to apply the combination of distance and forgiveness to
their mid irons.

  The new Heavenwood Hybrid 6H and 7H feature a low profile design
that creates an extremely low center of gravity and patented Callaway
Golf technologies that deliver design and performance advantages no
other club manufacturer can match.

  All Big Bertha Heavenwood Hybrids, from 1H through 7H, have lofts
meant to correspond to the irons they replace. The same design that
dramatically lowers the center of gravity to make it easier to get the
ball airborne also promotes clean contact with the ball in various
turf conditions ranging from tight lies to deep rough. The extended
heel-to-toe head shape features maximized perimeter weighting, which
raises the moment of inertia (MOI) for increased stability and more
resistance to twisting on off-center shots.

  The modified War Bird(R) sole is designed to help the head glide
over or through any surface with minimal resistance. The lengths of
the Big Bertha Heavenwood Hybrids have been optimized to be longer
than corresponding irons, yet shorter than comparable fairway woods,
resulting in the opportunity for greater distance while maximizing
playability, control and accuracy.

  Big Bertha Heavenwood Hybrids incorporate proven and patented
Callaway Golf technologies. S2H2(R) (Short, Straight, Hollow Hosel)
repositions weight to the perimeter of the clubhead for a higher MOI,
Tru-Bore(R) Technology delivers improved feel and clubhead control and
VFT(R) (Variable Face Thickness) Technology increases clubface
efficiency for maximum distance on shots hit from all areas of the

  The Big Bertha Heavenwood Hybrids are offered in lofts 1H (14
degrees), 2H (17 degrees), 3H (20 degrees), 4H (23 degrees) and 5H (26
degrees), 6H (29 degrees) and 7H (32 degrees). Men’s left-handed
versions are available in the 2H, 3H, 4H, and 5H models. The standard
graphite shaft in the Big Bertha Heavenwood Hybrids is the RCH 75w,
available in light, regular, firm and strong flexes. The standard
steel shaft is the Big Bertha Uniflex. Women’s right-handed versions
are available in 3H, 4H and 5H in a striking Champagne and Shiraz
color scheme that complements the entire line of women’s clubs from
Callaway Golf. Big Bertha Heavenwood Hybrids will carry manufacturer’s
suggested retail prices of $200 for steel-shafted clubs and $225 for
graphite-shafted models.

  Through an unwavering commitment to innovation, Callaway Golf
creates products and services designed to make every golfer a better
golfer. Callaway Golf Company manufactures and sells golf clubs and
golf balls, and sells golf accessories, under the Callaway Golf(R),
