Els relied on the following Callaway equipment to win the fourth career major championship—and second Claret Jug—of his Hall of Fame career:
Callaway RAZR Fit Driver, 8.5*
Callaway X-TOUR 15* Fairway Wood
Callaway RAZR X Muscleback Irons (5-PW)
Callaway X Utility Prototype Irons (18*, 21*, 24*)

"Ernie's major championship victory proves our unwavering commitment to making the best performing products for the best golfers in the world," said
Steady iron play with his Callaway RAZR X Muscleback Irons propelled Els' rounds of 67-70-68-68. He led the major championship field in Greens in Regulation, hitting an impressive 79 percent for the tournament.
Complementing his RAZR X Muscleback Irons were three Callaway X Utility Irons, a technical iron designed for the world's best players by Callaway Chief Designer Roger Cleveland. The new clubs, introduced in May, feature a shallow, deep Center of Gravity, which creates a higher launch angle for many players than their longer irons. The Callaway X Utility Prototype irons - only available on Tour - are made with a hollow forged construction and a high-strength steel face that produces high ball speeds. The irons also feature removable weights on the sole that allow players to make adjustments.
