CARLSBAD, Calif., – With a two-shot victory at the Dubai World Championship on Sunday, Callaway Staff Professional Alvaro Quiros became the first player to win with Callaway’s new RAZR Fit Driver, due to hit stores worldwide on February 17, 2012. With an eagle on the final hole, the long-hitting Spaniard saved his most clutch effort for when it was needed most, securing his second title of 2011 and the sixth of his European Tour career. 

The 28-year-old Quiros won the PGA European Tour’s final event of the season with a spectacular tee-to-green effort that showcased his prodigious length off the tee and a red-hot putter. He finished 19-under-par for the tournament, carding rounds of 68, 64, 70 and 67. Quiros, 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 new RAZR Fit Driver in early November at the WGC-HSBC Champions event, and the results have been impressive. 

In Dubai, his fourth tournament with the new driver, Quiros led the field in driving distance by averaging 311 yards off the tee en route to victory. One week earlier, he finished tied for seventh at the UBS Hong Kong Open while averaging an absurd 327 yards off the tee. With Sunday’s win, he vaulted to No. 21 in the Official World Golf Rankings, securing a spot in the 2012 Masters. In addition to the RAZR Fit Driver, here is the full complement of Callaway equipment that Quiros 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 wore Callaway apparel—including the Chev Mesh, Chev Polo and Pocket Polo, as well as a Callaway belt.  

Proving that there is plenty more to his game than simply outdriving the competition, Quiros hit 83 percent of greens in regulation this week using his RAZR X Muscle Back Irons and X-Forged Wedges, good for second best in the field. He also used his Odyssey ProType PT10 Putter to average 1.681 putts per hole, which was sixth best, and rolled in a 60-foot eagle putt on the 72nd hole to put an exclamation point on the victory. 

“We have been working on my swing a little bit—for about two or three months—because I want to become a more consistent player,” Quiros said following his win. “For my entire career the driver has been the most important club in my bag. Now I’ve got the RAZR Fit and I am hitting this driver straighter and longer than my last one for sure. I hit the RAZR Fit once and I knew straight away it was going in the bag.”

The RAZR Fit Driver features Callaway’s renowned OptiFit adjustability system—designed for easy use and noticeable changes in trajectory for each of the settings. The system allows golfers to adjust the club’s face angle to three address positions: Open, Square and Closed. This adjustment is controlled within the “cog”, a rotatable element of the hosel that changes the angle of the shaft axis relative to the head. Rotating the cog enables golfers to choose a preferred look at address while also minimizing a slice or hook generated by the club’s delivery to the ball. In the driverhead, OptiFit weights (one weighing 12 grams and the other 2 grams) are featured in the sole's toe and heal positions. These are movable and can be exchanged to create a meaningful shift in the club's center of gravity and a perceivable draw or neutral ball flight. 

The RAZR Fit Driver comes standard with a 45.5” Aldila RIP’d™ NV shaft and a premium Golf Pride New Decade Multi Compound grip. In addition to Quiros, RAZR Fit is also in the bags of Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Fredrik Jacobson and other tour professionals around the world.
