Callaway staff pro Alvaro Quiros became the first player to win with Callaway’s new nd hole of the Dubai World Championship. The long-hitting Spaniard saved his biggest theatrics for the grandest stage, draining a 60-foot birdie putt to win by two shots in the PGA European Tour’s final event of the season.on Sunday when he made an eagle on the 72
The 28-year-old won with a stellar tee-to-green effort that showcased his long-bombing ability and a trusty Odyssey putter. He finished 19-under-par for the tournament, carding rounds of 68, 64, 70 and 67. Alvaro, who was honored last week for being the longest driver on the European Tour for the 2011 season (during which he predominantly used Callaway’s RAZR Hawk Driver), switched to the newin early November at the WGC-HSBC Champions event, and the results have been impressive.
Theis due to hit stores worldwide on February 17, 2012. But if you want one, you might want to line up the night before and bring your sleeping bag and some hot cocoa. (Just a suggestion. Take it or leave it. Not for me to tell you what to do.)
The clubs and apparel he used/wore:
In addition to the, here is the full compliment of Callaway equipment that Alvaro had in his bag: X Fairway Wood (17 degrees), RAZR X Muscle Back Irons (3-PW), X-Forged Wedges (52, 56 and 58 degrees), the Tour i(z) Golf Ball and the Odyssey ProType PT10 Putter.
He also dressed like a guy who expected to win. Alvaro wore Callaway apparel—including the Chev Mesh, Chev Polo and Pocket Polo, as well as a Callaway belt to keep his trousers up.
In Dubai, his fourth tournament with the new driver, Alvaro led the field in driving distance by averaging 311 yards off the tee. One week earlier, he finished tied for seventh at the UBS Hong Kong Open while averaging an absurd 327 yards off the tee. Yep, he averaged 327. I’m sure you can all relate to that…when you play Golden Tee.
With Sunday’s win, Alvaro jumped to No. 21 in the Official World Golf Rankings, securing a spot in the 2012 Masters. Proving that there is plenty more to his game than simply outdriving the competition, Alvaro hit 83 percent of greens in regulation this week using his RAZR X Muscle Back Irons and X-Forged Wedges. That was good for second best in the field. (And I said wedges because when you average 311 off the tee, you hit a lot of wedges into greens. I would imagine.)
Odyssey Putter clinches victory
Alvaro also used his Odyssey ProType PT10 Putter to average 1.681 putts per hole, which was sixth best, and rolled in the 60-foot eagle putt on the 72nd hole to put an exclamation point on the victory.
