British Open Winner Uses Callaway Golf(R) Metal Woods
And Odyssey(R) TriForce(TM) Putter in Historic Comeback Victory Carlsbad, Calif. (PROTEXT)
Callaway Golf (NYSE: ELY) announced today that its Callaway Golf(R) and Odyssey Golf(R) brands each had a hand in winning one of the most spectacular British Opens in the storied history of the championship. The winner relied on the power and accuracy of his Callaway Golf(R) titanium driver and Big Bertha(R) Steelhead(TM) 3-wood along with the precision of his Odyssey(R) TriForce(TM) Putter to overcome a 10-stroke deficit in the final round. The 30-year-old Scottish winner used his Odyssey TriForce Putter to sink birdie putts on the final two playoff holes to clinch the historic victory. His 10-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole gave him a one-stroke lead heading into the final hole of the playoff. On that final hole, he struck a perfect drive that helped set up the three-foot birdie putt on the 18th green that completed his dramatic comeback. The winner's Big Bertha Steelhead 3-wood was one of 72 Callaway Golf fairway woods (all models) put in play at the British Open, according to Sports Marketing Survey, Ltd. The nearest competitor had 25 fairway woods in play at the championship. This marks the first major championship victory for Odyssey Golf's new TriForce line of putters, which have now won nine times around the world. Meanwhile, Callaway Golf Staff Professional Bruce Fleisher continued his remarkable run on the Senior PGA Tour. Fleisher made five final-round birdies and finished tied for second at the Ameritech Senior Open, one stroke behind the winner. Fleisher used 13 Callaway Golf clubs, including a Callaway Golf titanium driver, Big Bertha Steelhead 4-wood and 5-wood, and Big Bertha X- 12(R) Irons and Wedges. Fleisher also used an Odyssey Dual Force(R) Rossie(R) 2 Putter. Fleisher now has five second-place finishes to go with his four senior victories this year. The Senior PGA Tour rookie is atop the money list with $1,470,325 in winnings and also leads the senior tour in the birdie average, scoring average, par breakers and all-around statistical rankings.
