Item 1. Security and Issuer

This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D (this Amendment No. 1) amends the statement on Schedule 13D filed by the Reporting Persons on March 18, 2021 (Schedule 13D) with respect to the Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the Issuer Common Shares), of Callaway Golf Company, a Delaware corporation (the Issuer). The address of the principal executive office of the Issuer is 2180 Rutherford Road, Carlsbad, CA 92008-8815. Except as otherwise specified in this Amendment No. 1, all items in the Schedule 13D are unchanged. All capitalized terms used in this Amendment No. 1 and not otherwise defined herein have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13D.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer

(a) and (b) The information contained on the cover pages to this Amendment is incorporated herein by reference.

As further described in the Issuers Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 16, 2021, the Issuer entered into an underwriting agreement with Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, as representative of the underwriters named in such agreement (the Representative), pursuant to which an unrelated selling stockholder sold an aggregate of 4,600,000 Issuer Common Shares in an underwritten public offering (including the underwriters full exercise of an option to purchase up to an additional 600,000 Issuer Common Shares from such selling stockholder) (the Secondary Offering). The Secondary Offering was consummated on September 20, 2021. In connection with the Secondary Offering, and in accordance with the requirements of a market stand-off provision contained in the Registration Rights Agreement, TGP Investors, TGP Investors II and TGP Advisors entered into a customary lock-up agreement with the Representative pursuant to which they agreed, subject to certain exceptions, not to sell or otherwise transfer, directly or indirectly, any of their shares of Issuer Common Shares without the consent of the Representative for a period of 55 days following the date of the final prospectus supplement for the Secondary Offering (the Lock-Up Agreement). Effective September 29, 2021, with the consent of the Representative:

 

   

TGP Investors distributed a total of 7,527,374 Issuer Common Shares received pursuant to the Merger Agreement to its members in an in-kind for no additional consideration and in accordance with the terms of its governing documents;

 

   

TGP Investors II distributed a total of 3,779,381 Issuer Common Shares received pursuant to the Merger Agreement to its members in an in-kind for no additional consideration and in accordance with the terms of its governing documents; and

 

   

TGP Advisors distributed a total of 18,703 Issuer Common Shares received pursuant to the Merger Agreement to its members in an in-kind for no additional consideration and in accordance with the terms of its governing documents,

(collectively, the Distribution-in-Kind). A portion of the shares distributed by TGP Investors and TGP Investors II in connection with the Distribution-in-Kind were received by TGP Manager, LLC (TGP Manager), the managing member of TGP Investors and TGP Investors II, in consideration of its carried interest under the governing documents of those entities, and were further distributed-in-kind to TGP Managers members (including 512,019 shares received directly WestRiver and 48,591 shares received directly by a family limited liability company of which Mr. Anderson is the sole manager). A portion of the shares distributed by TGP Advisors in connection with the Distribution-in-Kind (10,304 shares) were received directly by Mr. Anderson as a member of that entity. As a condition to the Representative providing its consent to the Distribution-in-Kind, members of TGP Investors, TGP Investors II, TGP Advisors and TGP Manager, or the members of those members, who received shares as a result of the Distribution-in-Kind were required to agree to be bound by the Lock-Up Agreement with respect to such shares. Consequently, through November 9, 2021, such members are precluded from selling or otherwise transferring, subject to certain exceptions, the Issuer Common Shares they received in the Distribution-in-Kind without the consent of the Representative.

After giving effect to the Distribution-in-Kind:

 

   

TGP Advisors (i) owns directly 18,702 Issuer Common Shares outright and (ii) holds directly options to purchase an aggregate of 295,287 Issuer Common Shares, which were issued upon consummation of the Merger in exchange for certain Topgolf options held by TGP Advisors prior to the Merger (Replacement Options). The Replacement Options have the same terms and conditions (including as to vesting and expiration) as the Topgolf options they replace, except that the number of Issuer Common Shares and exercise price of the Replacement Options was adjusted based on an equity award exchange ratio set forth in the Merger Agreement. Replacement Options in respect of a total of 230,703 Issuer Common Shares are vested and exercisable as of September 29, 2021 or within 60 days thereof. The unvested Replacement Options vest in increments annually depending on the original date of grant of the Topgolf options they replaced.


   

TGP Investors owns directly 5,474,968 Issuer Common Shares;

 

   

TGP Investors II owns directly 1,209,996 Issuer Common Shares;

 

   

WestRiver owns directly 512,019 Issuer Common Shares;

 

   

Mr. Anderson owns directly 10,304 Issuer Common Shares, an RSU award for 573 Issuer Common Shares granted on March 9, 2021, and the May 2021 RSU Award described below; and

 

   

A family limited partnership of which Mr. Anderson is the sole manager owns directly 48,591 Issuer Common Shares.

On May 19, 2021, Mr. Anderson, who serves on the Issuers board of directors, received an annual award of restricted stock units for 4,063 Issuer Common Shares (May 2021 RSU Award) pursuant to the terms of the Issuers 2013 Non-Employee Directors Stock Incentive Plan (NED Plan). The May 2021 RSU Award vests one year after the date of grant and is otherwise subject to the terms of the NED Plan.

(c) Other than the Distribution-in-Kind (as defined above), the Reporting Persons have not engaged in any transaction during the past 60 days in any Issuer Common Shares.

(d) Not applicable.

(e) As a result of the Distribution-in-Kind, effective as of September 29, 2021 the Reporting Persons ceased to be the beneficial owners of more than five percent of the outstanding Issuer Common Shares.
