Playoff Victory for Annika Sorenstam Caps Three-Win
Weekend for Odyssey / TriForce Family of Putters Earns Eighth Victory of the Year CARLSBAD, Calif. (ots-PRNewswire) - Annika Sorenstam used her Odyssey(R) Dual Force(R) Rossie(R) 2 Putter to roll in a 7-foot birdie putt on the third hole of a sudden death playoff for a victory at the Michelob Light Classic. Sorenstam, who has now won the event three consecutive years, birdied two of the last three holes to force the playoff. Odyssey Golf, a division of Callaway Golf Company (NYSE: ELY), also tallied two other tour victories over the weekend. "I've worked hard on my game all year," said Sorenstam, 28. "I started putting the ball better this week. I'm glad to see I could put four good rounds together." Sorenstam parred the 18th hole twice to start the playoff, then hit her approach to seven feet on the third playoff hole. Her opponent missed her birdie putt, and Sorenstam took advantage of the opening to claim the 17th victory of her LPGA Tour career and her fourth win in the last six years at St. Louis. Elsewhere, the winner of the Greater Milwaukee Open earned the second PGA Tour title of his rookie season with his Odyssey TriForce 2 Putter. The winner set a tournament record with his 20-under-par total while becoming the first rookie in PGA Tour history to top the $1,000,000 earnings mark. That victory marks the eighth tour victory this year for the new TriForce family of premium putters. Odyssey Golf was also victorious on the PGA European Tour. The winner of the Standard Life Loch Lomond used a prototype Odyssey Putter to win his third event of the European Tour season.
