Billy Casper Golf and Callaway Golf partner for Putterpalooza

VIENNA, Va. -- Billy Casper Golf (BCG) - owner and operator of more than 140 golf courses, country clubs and resorts - has partnered with Callaway Golf for the second annual "Putterpalooza" at more than 50 BCG-managed courses across America.

Every Friday and / or Saturday between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., golfers nationwide can demo the latest Odyssey putters like VERSA, "The Fastest Growing New Putter Model on Tour," and White Hot Pro, already a three-time winner on Tour. Golfers who make a 10-foot putt can earn an Odyssey Drain patch, and players who sink a 30-foot putt with an Odyssey putter will win a free round of golf. Putterpalooza runs through July 6.

"Billy Casper Golf is extremely creative when it comes to ensuring exciting experiences for golfers," says Randy Rubin, Senior Manager of Strategic Accounts for Callaway and Odyssey Golf. "You don't find many initiatives dedicated to putter trial and sales, so we are excited to drive experience and value to the consumer."

"We are thrilled to again partner with Callaway and Odyssey for this fun and inventive program," says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. "The pressure is on for golfers to challenge their friends each week to see who can make the long-distance putt."
