Callaway Golf Staff Professional Pierre Fulke Captures His First European Victory In Dramatic Style

Pierre Fulke became the latest Callaway Golf (NYSE: ELY) Staff Professional to earn his first tour victory in 1999 with a dramatic PGA European Tour victory at the Trophee Lancome. Fulke, 28, posted four rounds in the 60s en route to the biggest payday of his seven years on the European tour. Fulke joins fellow Callaway Golf Staff Professionals Bruce Fleisher (Senior PGA Tour) and Carlos Franco (PGA Tour) in breaking through to the winner's circle this year. Fulke, who sealed his victory with a birdie putt on the final green, used 12 Callaway Golf(R) clubs in his victory, including a Great Big Bertha(R) Hawk Eye(R) Titanium Driver, Callaway Golf fairway woods and Big Bertha(R) X-12(R) Irons. Drivers made by Callaway Golf have now accounted for 51 wins on the world's five major professional tours this year -- more than any other manufacturer, according to the Darrell Survey Company and Sports Marketing Surveys, Ltd. One of Fulke's closest pursuers in the final round was Callaway Golf Staff Professional Colin Montgomerie, who finished tied for third. Playing in the Trophee Lancome while tuning up for this week's Ryder Cup Matches, Montgomerie used 11 Callaway Golf clubs, including a Great Big Bertha Hawk Eye Titanium Driver, Big Bertha(R) Steelhead(TM) 3-wood, and Big Bertha X-12 Irons. Montgomerie's high finish -- following two wins and a second-place finish in his previous three European events -- also solidifies his chances for a record-breaking seventh consecutive Volvo Order of Merit title. Callaway Golf Staff Professional Gary Evans also recorded a top-10 finish at the Trophee Lancome. Other Callaway Golf Staff Professionals posted strong finishes around the world over the weekend. Stephen Ames shot 12-under-par at the B.C. Open to finish fourth for his second top-10 finish on the PGA Tour in the last month. Jim Colbert and David Graham finished tied for fourth at the Bank One Championship after posting matching 69s in the final round of the Senior PGA Tour event. And in Seoul, South Korea, Kyi Hla Han hit every fairway and green during the final round in his second-place finish at the Kolon Korean Open to remain atop the Asian PGA Davidoff Tour's Order of Merit.
