Sean O’Hair Turns Tough Year Around by Winning RBC Canadian Open Playing TaylorMade R11 Driver, Wearing adidas Golf and Ashworth
Three Brands Unite in the Winner’s Circle as O’Hair notches Fourth Career PGA Tour Victory
TaylorMade Tour Staff professional Sean O’Hair earned his fourth PGA Tour victory Sunday, winning the RBC Canadian Open playing the R11 driver, wearing Ashworth apparel and adidas Golf footwear. O’Hair’s excellent tee-to-green play was critical to handling the narrow fairways and exceptionally heavy rough of Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club’s. He drove brilliantly with his R11, ranking third in driving distance (299.6), also used the Tour Preferred MB forged irons and the Penta TP ball to notch 10 birdies in the final 36 holes of regulation. The R11 driver, Tour Preferred MB and Penta TP were likewise used last week by TaylorMade Tour Staffer Darren Clarke to win the Open Championship.
The victory vindicates months of work O’Hair has put in to regain his form in the midst of a 12-tournament streak in which he missed nine of 12 cuts and fell to 114th in the Official World Golf Rankings. The win puts O’Hair, 29, back in the thick of the 2011 FedExCup points race (43rd). It had been two years since his last victory, at the 2009 Quail Hollow Championship.
“It’s been a humbling year,” O’Hair said. “It’s been a tough road and I’ve had a lot of people help me get to this point.” *

TaylorMade Tour Staff Professional Darren Clarke Captures Open Championship Playing R11 Driver
TaylorMade Tour Staff Professional Darren Clarke captured the Open Championship Sunday, realizing a lifelong dream of hoisting the Claret Jug after delivering a virtuoso performance at Royal St. George’s. Exceptional ballstriking and true grit fueled Clarke’s emotionally charged victory at the Open, his first major championship win in 54 attempts.
“it’s been a dream since I’ve been a kid to win The Open, like any kid’s dream is, and I’m able to do it, which just feels incredible, incredible right now,” Clarke said.
Playing the R11 driver, Tour Preferred MB irons and the Penta TP golf ball, the journeyman Clarke was well-suited to take on classic Open conditions. Three consecutive rounds in the 60s put Clarke in position to capitalize on a one-shot lead Sunday, a wild afternoon that hosted his gutsy final-round 70 – highlighted by a 20-foot eagle putt at the par-5 seventh. His 72-hole total of 275 was good for a three-shot win, his second this year and 21st career worldwide. Clarke previously won the Iberdrola Open in May.
With the win, Clarke, 42, became the oldest Open Champion since 1967 and left little doubt about the celebration to ensue in his home country of Northern Ireland. Clarke also moved to No. 30 in the Official World Golf Rankings and now ranks sixth in the Race to Dubai.
TaylorMade drivers have been used in 32 victories worldwide in 2011 – more than any other brand. Clarke’s victory marks the first major win for the revolutionary R11 driver and second for the Penta TP golf ball. TaylorMade-adidas Golf Tour Staff professional Martin Kaymer won the 2010 PGA Championship playing Penta TP, the first and only five-layer Tour ball and the most complete ball in golf.
