Callaway Golf Staff Pro Michael Campbell Leads International Two-Win Weekend For Hawk Eye(R) Drivers
CARLSBAD, Calif. (PROTEXT)
In a spectacular regular season wrap-up for Callaway Golf Company (NYSE: ELY), two touring professionals on two different continents used the same model driver -- the Great Big Bertha(R) Hawk Eye Titanium Driver -- to win on their respective tours. Callaway Golf Staff Professional Michael Campbell fought off challenges from a leaderboard laden with international stars to win the PGA European Tour's Johnnie Walker Classic in Taiwan and earn his first victory since 1995. In recording the victory, Campbell managed to do what no other golfer has done since the NEC Invitational in late August -- win an event that had Tiger Woods in the field. Meanwhile, the winner of the LPGA's PageNet Tour Championship in Las Vegas used her Great Big Bertha Hawk Eye Titanium driver - - and a brand new set of Hawk Eye Tungsten Injected(TM) Titanium Irons -- to earn a dramatic playoff win over Karrie Webb and Laura Davies on Sunday. She opened the tournament with back to back rounds of 66 and her victory was sealed by a birdie putt set up by a sensational shot with her Hawk Eye 8-iron to within five feet of the cup. "I just started playing with the Hawk Eye," the champion, who put the new Hawk Eye Irons in her bag for the first time the day before the tournament began, told a local newspaper. "I just find good distance with them. They seem to help me play better; they're working." The winner earned three LPGA Tour titles this year, relying on Callaway Golf woods and irons in each. At the Tour Championship, she used 12 Callaway Golf clubs, including a Hawk Eye Titanium Driver and Big Bertha(R) Steelhead(TM) 3-wood and 5-wood in addition to her Hawk Eye Irons. Callaway Golf Staff Professional Bruce Fleisher, who made the semifinals of this past weekend's Senior Match Play Challenge, has already won two events using the new Hawk Eye Irons. Campbell shot a 2-under-par 70 in the final round, including a key birdie on No. 15 to take a lead he did not relinquish. The 30-year-old New Zealander earned $215,328 for the victory, his best showing since he won the Alfred Dunhill Masters in Jakarta. "This is a wonderful accomplishment," said Campbell, who carried 11 Callaway Golf clubs including a Great Big Bertha Hawk Eye Titanium Driver, Big Bertha Steelhead 3-wood and Big Bertha X-12(R) Irons. Campbell also used an Odyssey(R) Putter. "I am very pleased to be back striking the ball well, off the tee and from the fairway. It's a great feeling to be back."
