Callaway Golf Staff Professional Annika Sorenstam Claims Second Victory of 1999 LPGA Tour Season

Closing with birdies on four of the final seven holes yesterday, Callaway Golf (NYSE: ELY) Staff Professional Annika Sorenstam clinched her second LPGA Tour win of the year. Sorenstam, 28, used a combination of long drives, pinpoint iron shots and clutch putting to post a final-round 66 and win the New Albany Golf Classic by three strokes. Sorenstam, 28, used 10 Callaway Golf(R) clubs in her victory, including a Callaway Golf Titanium Driver, Big Bertha(R) Steelhead(TM) 3-wood and 7-wood and Big Bertha(R) X-12(R) Irons. The event's runner-up used a Great Big Bertha(R) Hawk Eye(R) 3- wood and Big Bertha X-12 Irons. Callaway Golf Staff Professional Emilee Klein finished third using 11 Callaway Golf clubs, including a Great Big Bertha Hawk Eye Titanium Driver and 3-wood, Big Bertha Steelhead 5-wood and Big Bertha X-12 Irons. According to the Darrell Survey Company, Callaway Golf was No. 1 in drivers, fairway woods and irons in play at the New Albany Golf Classic. "I was driving it really well, which gave me a lot of short irons to the greens," said Sorenstam, who now has 16 career LPGA Tour victories and is one point shy of qualifying for the LPGA Hall of Fame. "Because I was driving the ball long and in the fairways, I was able to be aggressive and hit a lot of irons shots really close to the hole." Callaway Golf's newest product introduction -- the Hawk Eye Tungsten Injected Titanium Irons -- is also making news on tour. The irons have already been put in play on each of the four major U.S. professional tours in the two weeks they have been available to tour professionals. At last week's Senior PGA Tour Vantage Championship, three Callaway Golf Staff Professionals using Hawk Eye Irons finished in the event's top 10. Bruce Fleisher put a set in play and shot three rounds in the 60s to finish second and regain the lead on the senior money list. Jim Dent used his new Hawk Eye Irons to shoot an opening-round 63, his lowest round of the year, and finish tied for 10th with Jim Colbert, who posted a final-round 64 with his new Hawk Eye Irons. According to the Darrell Survey Company, Callaway Golf was No. 1 in drivers, fairway woods and irons in play at the Vantage Championship.
