Callaway Staff Pros Montgomerie, Fleisher Win Again
CARLSBAD, Calif. (PROTEXT)
Callaway Golf Company (NYSE: ELY) Staff Professionals Colin Montgomerie and Bruce Fleisher added to their multiple victory seasons with wins on two continents this past weekend. Montgomerie won his fourth tournament of the year on the PGA European Tour, cruising to a nine-stroke victory in the Scandinavian Open at Barsebaeck, Sweden. Fleisher collected his fifth win of the season on the Senior PGA Tour, taking the Lightpath Long Island Classic at Jerico, N.Y. For Montgomerie -- who used 11 Callaway clubs to shoot 20- under-par 268 and produce the widest margin of victory of the year on the European Tour -- the victory was never in doubt. He began the final round with a six-stroke lead and widened it to nine with a near-flawless round of 69 shot in rainy, windy conditions. Montgomerie, who leads the 1999 European Order of Merit money list, used a Great Big Bertha(R) Hawk Eye(R) Titanium Driver, a Big Bertha(R) Steelhead(TM) 3-wood, and Big Bertha X- 12(R) Irons. Fleisher's remarkable rookie season on the Senior PGA Tour continued with his two-stroke victory. Using 13 Callaway golf clubs, Fleisher collected a $180,000 first-place check to move into first place on the money list with season earnings of $1.66 million. "This goes beyond anything I had dreamed for my first season as a senior player," said Fleisher, who had a Callaway(R) titanium driver, Big Bertha Steelhead 4-wood and 5-wood, Big Bertha X-12 irons and wedges and an Odyssey(R) Rossie(R) 2 putter in his bag. "The confidence I have in every aspect of my golf game -- driving, iron play, putting -- is at a very high level." The two staff professional victories highlighted another highly successful week for Callaway Golf on the professional tours. The top three finishers at the LPGA's areaWeb.com Challenge at Pleasant Valley Country Club all had Callaway golf clubs in their bags. The winner of the event used a Great Big Bertha Hawk Eye 3-wood and Big Bertha X-12 Irons and the runner up used a Callaway titanium driver, a Hawk Eye 9-wood and Big Bertha X-12 Irons.
