January 01, 1919 - July 05, 2001
Ely Callaway, the founder of the hugely successful Callaway Golf Co. one of the biggest clubmakers in the world with its’"Big Bertha" drivers, died at 82 years old early Thursday at his home in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. of pancreatic cancer. He just retired as chief executive officer and president of Callaway Golf Co. May 15, 2001. A tumor was discovered on his pancreas during surgery to remove his gall bladder.
He was born and grew up in LaGrange, Georgia, in 1919.
Mr. Callaway spent almost 30 years in the textile industry, rising to high places at Milliken, Textron, and Burlington Industries. He left Burlington as its president and chief operating officer in 1973 after 17 years with the company. A dispute over the chairmanship, which Callaway thought should have been his, has been reported to have caused the parting of the ways.
He was now 54 and not about to retire. Five years before he left Burlington, he planted a small vineyard in Temecula, California, in a part of the state that had not before produced any good quality dry table wine. He sold the vineyard in 1981 to Hiram Walker for $ 14 million, taking a profit of $ 9 million. He had never intended to keep it, and he had never intended to retire.
In 1984, he spent $ 400,000 for a little golf company called Hickory Stick. It was owned by Richard Parente and Dick De La Cruz, a pair of California clubmakers hoping to create a niche for their specialty clubs, wedges and putters with hickory wood wrapped around a steel shaft. Chi Chi Rodriguez says that Callaway came to his home in Puerto Rico and offered him $ 250,000 to play the wedges on the Senior PGA Tour. "I told him I wouldn't play them for $ 1 million," Rodriguez says. But Rodriguez would become one of the first to play the Big Bertha and is one of Callaway's original staff professionals.
Pretty soon the Hickory Sticks were history, replaced with the S2H2 (Short Straight Hollow Hosel), a bore-through design that was incorporated in both woods and irons. After some modest success, the Big Bertha was introduced in 1991 and the Great Big Empire begun.
Since then, the company's fortunes have exceeded anyone's imagination, The company's stock is one of the darlings of Wall Street and those around during the company's beginnings are multi-millionaires and getting richer by the day.
Mr. Callaway does not appear to be a man given to outward excess. Except, perhaps, in marriage--he has been down the aisle four times. He is southern enough to deflect any back-slapping for the company's success, deferring to the people who surround him. And, to his credit, he has created an atmosphere that is about as democratic as a billion-dollar company can get. There is no executive dining room. Everyone--from Callaway to the people who slide the grips on the clubs--eats in the same dining room. It's called Ely's Place. Callaway is revered and adored by the entire workforce. Although practically everyone you talk to who works at Callaway Golf loves his or her job and can't say enough about their former boss. You are invited to sign Mr. Callaway’s Book of Visitation below. Please visit Canoe.ca for more on the life & times of Ely Callaway.
