The #1 putter in golf claims 36th and 37th wins of the season; Odyssey delivers winning putts in fifty percent of 2012 European PGA Tour events; Eleven 2012 Ryder Cup players choose Odyssey -- eight more than nearest competitor
CARLSBAD, Calif., September 6, 2012 - Odyssey®, the #1 Putter in Golf®, added to its historic season this week with two more wins across the world's major Tours, raising its 2012 win total to a remarkable 37 events. At the European PGA Tour's Johnny Walker Championship, seven of the players who finished T10 or better, including the winner, took aim with an Odyssey putter. In fact, of the 34 European PGA Tour events contested this year, Odyssey has captured victory 17 times. Across the world's major Tours, Odyssey continues its extraordinary lead in Wins, Top-10 Finishes and overall usage.
This week saw the finalization of the American and European Ryder Cup teams that will compete later this month in what is arguably the most intense championship in professional golf. Among the players representing Europe and the United States, a group that collectively features the vast majority of the world's top-ranked golfers, eleven of them will arrive at Medinah Country Club due in some part to their success with an Odyssey putter.
"The Ryder Cup is one of the most prestigious golf events of the year. Any tournament that can bring 24 of the best players in the world together is special," said Chris Koske, Global Business Director for Odyssey Golf. "To see so many of those iconic players put an Odyssey putter in their bag further validates our dominance on the worldwide tours."
Odyssey stands head and shoulders above other manufacturers in terms of putters chosen by the Ryder Cup players, totaling eight more than the nearest competitor.
