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.” *

{Whats in the Bag} Darren Clarke | Heart of a Champion @ The Open

TaylorMade Tour Staff Professional Darren Clarke Captures Open Championship Playing R11 Driver

Clarke, 42, Becomes Oldest Open Champion Since 1967 Playing R11 Driver, Tour Preferred MB Forged Irons, Penta TP Golf Ball

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.

Fredrik Jacobson Wins Travelers Championship For First PGA Tour Title

freddie-blog-featured

CROMWELL, Conn., June 26, 2011- Leading by a stroke going into the final round of the 2011 Travelers Championship, Sweden’s Fredrik Jacobson held on by that margin and shot a 66 to earn his first career PGA TOUR victory at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn.

“Obviously, it means a great deal,” Jacobson said. “I came over in ’03 after having won in Europe, and I had my eyes on the (PGA) TOUR. Obviously after winning a couple of times that year (on European Tour), I felt pretty good about winning, and I didn’t know it was going to take this long before I won one. But whoever waits for a long time, all the sweeter when it comes together.”

Jacobson moved into first place when he shot a 63 Saturday. He fired a three-under on the front nine Sunday to retain the lead and held on with a back nine 34.

Jacobson was tied with Ryan Moore after 17 holes on Sunday at 20-under par. Moore bogeyed the 72nd hole to finish at 19-under. Needing a par for the win, Jacobson calmly hit his drive in the fairway on 18 and stuck his approach to 13 feet. He two putted for the win. Moore and John Rollins finished at 19-under and tied for second place.

Jacobson was steady the entire tournament, as evidenced by just one bogey over four rounds. His total score of 260 is the third best in tournament history, just two strokes off Kenny Perry’s 72-hole tournament record of 258 in 2009.

This was Jacobson’s fourth appearance at the Travelers Championship, his previous best finish coming in 2006, when he tied for 48th. Overall, this is his fourth title, with the other three wins coming on the European Tour in 2003.

Jacobson became the fourth first-time PGA TOUR winner at the Travelers Championship in the last six years, joining J.J.Henry in 2006, Hunter Mahan in 2007 and Bubba Watson in 2010. The 2012 Travelers Championship will take place June 18-24 at TPC River Highlands. For more information, please visit www.TravelersChampionship.com.

Summer Special – Adams Golf

Adams_Win_LPGAchamp_GGpost-062611


In yet another example of her incredible talent and no-fear mentality, Adams Golf Tour Staff Member Yani Tseng won the Wegmans LPGA Championship by 10 strokes at 19-under-par. With the win, Tseng became the youngest player (22) to win four majors.  She also matched the LPGA Tour record-low at a major and has won three of the tour’s last six majors. The only major she’s missing is the U.S. Women’s Open title, which she’ll have an opportunity to complete her career grand slam in two weeks at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Here’s what the world’s No. 1 player carried in her bag:

Speedline 9032LS driver – 9.5 deg.
Speedline FW – 14 deg. (3)
Idea a7 hybrid – 19 deg.
Idea a7 hybrid – 22 deg.
Idea Tech a4 irons (4-PW)

Mick Elliot from espn.com has a great story about Yani and how she arrived on the global stage of women’s golf:

When Tseng flipped on her television Saturday night before going to sleep on her 54-hole lead, she tuned in the Golf Channel to watch and self-critique. But it was not to study her golf. It was to listen to herself being interviewed and judge her communication efforts.

“I probably talk too much now,” she said with a giggle last week. “I try don’t be afraid to talk to people, the media, fans or friends. You know, just try to be free. That’s how I learn English so fast. I learn lots of American slang and from the book.”

It really doesn’t matter. Her statement Sunday was heard loud and clear.

 

The summer has heated up fast for the Adams Golf Tour Staff with 3 wins in the span of 1 week. Tom Watson started by winning the Senior PGA Championship on the first hole of a playoff.  Steve Wheatcroft ran away with the Nationwide Tour’s Melwood Prince George’s County Open, finishing a staggering 29-under Sunday for a record-breaking 12-stroke victory.  And Brittany Lincicome shot a 5-under-par 66 on Sunday to record her fourth career LPGA victory at the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

This magical week on Tour comes approximately 3 months after the Adams Golf Tour staff swept the weekend of Feb. 20 with wins on the PGA Tour (Aaron Baddeley – Northern Trust Open), the Champions Tour (Bernhard Langer – ACE Group Classic) and the LPGA Tour (Yani Tseng – Honday LPGA Thailand).
