The Callaway ambassador was spotted using a new driver, which is thought to be the Rogue based on the writing seen on the bottom of the clubhead.

As well as the new prototype woods, Paisley had the new Callaway X Forged UT in the bag and Mack Daddy 4 wedges – both of which were launched this month.
