Odyssey Cruises To LPGA Major Win
The #1 Putter in Golf added another major win on Sunday with a dominating performance at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. A White Ice Sabertooth model took control of the event, built a big lead on Sunday and closed out a convincing 4-shot victory at the first LPGA major of the year. The Mission Hills greens were no match for one of the best four-day putting performances we’ve seen in a LONG time.
With the win, Odyssey now leads all putter brands with 13 victories across the major worldwide Tours this season. We’re also the #1 Putter across the major Tours this year, and our putters will look to keep the major momentum going this week at Augusta, where our Social Media Team will have all the latest updates and images on Facebook and Twitter. As you can tell, we’re beyond excited to get this week started.
Furyk Finishes T3 In Texas, Will Play One Driver At Augusta
In a week where he played great golf and worked out his driver selection for Augusta, Jim Furyk shot 69-70-69-69 to finish T3 at the Valero Texas Open. Furyk played two RAZR Fit Xtreme Drivers (9.5° and 10.5°) on Thursday and ultimately decided to take the 9.5° model out of his bag before the second round. He toyed with the idea of playing two drivers at Augusta, like Phil Mickelson did when he won in 2006, but he’ll stick with one for the major championship.
“What I’ll probably do is get in that Callaway trailer on Monday morning in Augusta, make a couple of adjustments and try to play it through Monday and Wednesday in practice rounds and see how comfortable I get,” Furyk said. He’ll come into the event with plenty of confidence after posting top-7 finishes in two of his last three starts. Furyk is currently using a HEX Black Tour Ball along with his RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver.
Lee Moves Into Top-20 On Web.com Money List
Callaway staffer Danny Lee posted his second top-10 of the year at the Brasil Classic and jumped to 18th on the Web.com money list. He played a RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver (9.5°), RAZR Fit Xtreme 3-wood, RAZR X Muscleback Irons and an Odyssey White Hot Pro V-Line Putter during the event. The 23-year-old is now in great position to earn his PGA Tour card for 2014, and you’ll see him at a number of PGA events over the next few months.
