Phil Mickelson shows that gravity works - every time. His catching hand - not so much.

Callaway Golf is doing all it can to promote the return of the iconic Big Bertha driver. And of course, part of that is bringing out their heavy hitters to talk about - well, their heavy hitter (see what I did there?).

Anyways, Callway's biggest name is Phil Mickelson and as we all know, he LOVES the new Big Bertha. Of course, if you play like Phil Mickelson, it's easy to love a good golf club. But you know what's not always easy? Filming an ad talking about how much you love a new driver.

The ad is about the new technology of the club's "gravity core." To illustrate the importance of the center weight, Callaway is using imagery of Sir Isaac Newton and the famed falling apple. Mickelson attempts to talk about the gravity core and then catch a falling apple. The ad isn't out just yet.  But Callaway Golf is having some fun by sharing the outtakes from the shoot. 



Mickelson is currently ranked No. 4 in the world. It's a good thing Phil is better at catching birdies than apples. Just sayin'
