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

{Whats in the Bag} Sean O'Hair | RBC Canadian Open: Open 2 Open

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.
