Odyssey Caps Off A Great Summer!

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

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?
