Callaway staff professional James Morrison had a flawless closing round of 69, to win the Open de España at Real Club de Golf El Prat in Barcelona. Morrison finished in style holing a ten foot birdie putt with his Odyssey Versa Jailbird Putter on the last to earn the biggest prize of his career and €250,000.
The Englishman used Nippon Shaft N.S. Pro Modus3 Tour 120 TX flex steel shafts in both his Callaway irons and wedges. He shot 70-71-68-69—278 for a ten-under par total. His victory also propels him from 296th in the Official World Golf Ranking to just outside the top 160.
Neil Howie, president and managing director of Callaway EMEA said, “I congratulate James on a dominant victory in Spain and wish him, and all Callaway Staff Professionals, best of luck for the European Tour’s blue riband event at Wentworth Club this week. Let’s hope we are celebrating another dominant tournament for Callaway and Odyssey on Sunday evening.”
Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft commented, “As always, we take tremendous pride in the fact that the winner decided to use Nippon Shaft products when going into battle against the world’s toughest competition.”
