NCAA Player of the Year Sam Burns signs with Callaway Golf, adidas Golf

NCAA 2017 Player of the Year award winner Sam Burns turned pro in September, and now he's landed a pair of key endorsement deals as he joins the paid ranks.

The 21-year-old LSU product has signed an equipment contract with Callaway Golf with a 14-club deal. He is currently playing a GBB Epic driver and fairway wood, Apex Pro 16 irons and an Odyssey O-Works #7S putter.

Last season, as a sophomore, Burns won 4 tournaments, including the David Toms Intercollegiate, The Prestige at PGA West and the Baton Rouge Regional. On top of being named NCAA Division I Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year, he was voted SEC Player of the Year and a 1st Team All-American. He also set the LSU single-season scoring record. As an amateur, he finished T-6 at the PGA Tour's Barbasol Championship in July.

Burns has also signed an apparel deal with adidas Golf, wearing apparel and footwear for the 3 Stripes as he gets his career going. Burns makes his pro debut this week at the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Miss.
