The most popular golfer Phil Mickelson is currently playing at the 2016 US PGA tour championship at Baltusrol Golf Club in New Jersey.
He is taking part in this event that he had won about 11 years ago. The win at the US PGA tour event was his second major title in his career that he won in 2005.
This year was made special by Mickelson when he presented his friend and the Baltusrol PGA Head Professional Doug Steffen with a special gift to appreciate his long term yeomen service to this club. The gift that Doug Steffen received was not an ordinary one. It was commemorative PGA Championship wedges for this head professional, who has been serving Baltusrol since 1997.
There would not have been a better time for Mickelson to choose than now to give a commemorative gift for his dear friend as the head professional will be retiring in a few months time. Doug has done great service for this New Jersey golf club for the past 20 years. This will be the final majors that Steffen will be hosting in Baltusrol as he retires at the end of this year.
Callaway, the club sponsor of Mickelson, made two commemorative wedges for Steffen that was custom engraved. Doug Steffen eyes lit up when he saw this gift from Mickelson and there is no doubt that he was pretty pleased to receive this prestigious gift from his old pal. He is really pleased to see the finished product.
Mickelson and his sponsor Callaway wanted to send him off on a high note, considering all that he has done for the Baltusrol Golf Club. Hence, they thought about this unique gift. A logo was engraved on the matte black PM grind wedge using laser beams and the club has really come out well.
