Timberlake & the Father’s Day Connection:  Timberlake was first introduced to the game by his dad, Paul Harless, on the Mirimichi course that they now own together.  Over the years, playing together and enjoying time on the golf course has strengthened the bond between them.  Callaway’s contest encourages fans to share an emotional and entertaining story that describes how the game of golf has brought them closer to someone in their life.

To enter the contest, fans need to enter a written submission on Callaway’s Facebook page of up to 100 words by June 19, 2011, the contest’s closing date.  In July, Callaway will announce 25 finalists and the grand prize winner will then be chosen by popular vote on Facebook. All 25 finalists will be awarded a new Callaway Diablo Octane Driver, the first club made with a groundbreaking ultra lightweight material called Forged Composite™ that Callaway co-developed with Automobili Lamborghini.
