{Whats in the Bag} Justin Rose Wins The BMW Championship & Qualifies For TOUR Championship

justin-rose-adidas-blog

LEMONT, Ill. – The score sheet will say England’s Justin Rose breezed to a wire-to-wire victory in the BMW Championship. Breezed? It was more like weathering Hurricane Irene.

Playing in steady rain, Rose nearly squandered a five-stroke lead after eight holes Sunday but held on with an even-par 71 to win the third PGA Tour playoff event, at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. His 13-under-par 271 total was two shots better than steady Australian John Senden, who had closed within one of the lead after 15 holes.

Rose struggled through much of the back nine — missing four of five fairways and five of seven greens at one point — but sank a 35-foot chip shot from in front of the 17th green for birdie and a two-shot lead. Read More…

Built 4 Explosive Distance!

09-14-2011-cobra-long-tom-driver-pre-order-email

During World War II, the United States Army used massive 155 mm Gun M1 cannons that could hit enemy targets with a 94-pound shell from 14 miles away. Nicknamed “Long Tom,” they were serious heavy hitters. This fall, Cobra Golf will release two new drivers inspired by those cannons—the Long Tom and the limited-edition Long Tom RAW—for golfers who want serious firepower on the tee.

Measuring four feet in length (the USGA length limit is 48” for all clubs except putters), the face of each Long Tom driver is made from a new titanium alloy that is stronger than previous materials used by Cobra. This alloy makes the face thinner, and in the process, creates 20 grams of discretionary weight that has been redistributed low and deep in the 460-cc head. This discretionary weight lowers the center of gravity and helps to create a higher launch and, according to Cobra, more distance.

Like last season’s S3 driver family, Long Tom drivers also feature an elliptically shaped sweet spot that helps to maintain ball speed on shots hit in the low-heel and high-toe areas, where Cobra says players mis-hit most often.

Weighing in at a scant 269 grams, the Long Tom will come standard with a Grafalloy Blackbird shaft. Grafalloy says that a unique black paint on the Blackbird improves aerodynamics. Even the club’s grip, a Winn Ultra Light/Shorty, is geared toward adding yardage—it’s so small that you can’t choke down on the club!

Odyssey Caps Off A Great Summer!

major-statement-odyssey

Now that’s how you cap off a great championship summer! The winner of the PGA Championship earned his first career major win in his first major championship appearance with a White Hot XG Sabertooth Long Putter. He overcame a triple-bogey at the brutal Par-3 15th on Sunday with birdie putts on the difficult 16th and 17th holes. The Odyssey user also converted a tricky 2-putt on the 18th and earned a spot in a two-man, 3-hole aggregate playoff after the tournament leader bogeyed No. 15-17.

The White Hot XG Sabertooth Long user birdied the first playoff hole and sank a tap-in par putt on the third hole to clinch his victory. The PGA Tour rookie also became the first player to win a major with a long putter. He overcame a 5-shot deficit over the final three holes with an eight-foot birdie on 16 and a 40-foot bomb that brought the crowd to its feet on 17. The Odyssey user has won two tournaments in 2011 and currently sits in fourth place on the FedExCup list. <<…Read More…>>

{Whats in the Bag} Keegan Bradley | Major Champion

8-15-2011-cleveland-brag-keegan-bradley

Keegan’s hard work over the years has paid off.  Just two years ago Keegan was on the Hooters Tour just “trying to survive”, living in a one bedroom apartment.  Last year he made a name for himself on the Nationwide Tour, finish 14th on the money list and earning status on the PGA Tour.  His first career PGA Tour win came earlier this year at the HP Byron Nelson Classic, also in a playoff and has recorded four other Top 10s.

With this win, the Bradley name is added to the uber-short list of Francis Ouimet and Ben Curtis. Those are the three golfers since 1913 to win a major in their first attempt. Keegan Bradley locked up his 2nd win of the year on Sunday in absolutely ridiculous fashion coming down the stretch. At one point, with three holes to play, Bradley was 5 shots back of the lead and the metaphorical fat lady had all but taken the stage for her big solo. A triple bogey on the Par 3, 15th hole left Bradley seemingly out of the Championship, leaving viewers thinking he had a nice week but it wasn’t meant to be. However, back-to-back birdies (including one jaw dropping putt on 17) and a steady par on 18 were enough to force a playoff. Once the playoff began, Keegan wasted no time extending the momentum he had going from the previous three holes.

So, congratulations Keegan Bradley! You have just joined an elite club! Not only is Keegan now a major champion, he has just vaulted to the top of the Rookie of the Year conversation, as well as making an exceptionally strong case for Player of the Year honors.  With this win, Keegan moves to 4th in FedEx Cup points and 29th in the OGWR!  Do you think Keegan is a legitimate Player of the Year contender?

Here is what Keegan used to win the PGA Championship:

DRIVER: Cleveland Launcher UltraLite TL 310
FAIRWAY WOOD: Cleveland Launcher FL
HYBRIDS: Cleveland Mashie TM3
IRONS: Cleveland CG7 Tour (4-PW)
WEDGES: Cleveland CG14
BALL: Srixon Z-Star
