Odyssey prototype stroke lab putter
Rolls Danny Willett to victory
Callaway Staff Professional Danny Willett proved just how much he loves his new Odyssey Prototype Stroke Lab Putter by rolling in 23 birdies and an eagle on his way to victory at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.
First put in play at last week’s Nedbank Challenge in South Africa, the prototype design features a special Odyssey shaft that is designed to improve the consistency of the putting stroke, thanks to a revolutionary weighting system.
Fellow Callaway Staffers Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia have also put the new prototype shaft in play on Tour this season.
Willett (31), the 2016 Masters Champion, ranked first in Putts per Green in Regulation across the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates, helping him to his sixth European Tour title and the €1,177,645 winner’s cheque.
Talking immediately after his two-shot -18 victory, he said: “You never quite know when a win is around the corner. With everything that’s happened you’re never sure if another win is going to come. It has been a hell of a lot of work. It is just nice to be back!”
Danny wasn’t the only player to be using a Rogue Driver this week as, for the 18th out of 19 weeks, a Rogue or Rogue Sub Zero Driver has the been the #1 Driver Model in play on the European Tour.
Danny used a complete bag of Callaway and Odyssey products, including a Rogue Fairway Wood, X Forged ‘18 Irons and Utilities, and Mack Daddy Wedges.
Danny also relied on the performance of the Chrome Soft X Golf Ball, featuring revolutionary graphene. A host of other Callaway Staff Players have also tasted victory this season using Chrome Soft, including Australian Marc Leishman, Spain’s Sergio Garcia and Xander Schauffele.
Neil Howie, Managing Director of Callaway Golf EMEA, said: “It is great to see Danny winning again – he has a habit of coming good at the biggest events! – and we couldn’t be more delighted for him and his family.
“To see him in such devatasting form, using a new Odyssey Prototype Stroke Lab Putter is a great way to end another phenomenal season for #TeamCallaway.”
