Callaway Staff Professional, Andrea Pavan, made an Epic final day surge up the leaderboard at the BMW International Open to clinch his second European Tour title after a stunning play-off victory at Golf Club Munchen Eichenried in Germany.
A flawless last round 66 (six under par), took the 30-year-old Italian into a play-off; a birdie at the second extra hole pitching to three-feet with his Callaway X-Forged 18 irons, saw him claim the €333,330 winner’s cheque.
Using a full bag of Callaway and Odyssey products and a Chrome Soft X Golf Ball, Pavan led in greens in regulation, hitting 79.2%, and averaged 300.1 yards off the tee, thanks to his Epic Flash Sub Zero Driver, featuring revolutionary Flash Face technology.
“It’s amazing,” said Andrea, who won the Czech Masters last season for his maiden title on the European Tour. “Two years ago, at this moment, I was really struggling. I can’t thank enough my coach, my caddie, my family, my wife,” he added.
Staff professionals Alvaro Quiros, Christian Bezuidenhout and Jordan Smith finished tied third at -13.
Neil Howie, President and Managing Director, Callaway EMEA, commented: “Andrea’s final day charge certainly lived up to the ‘Epic’ clubs in his bag. What a time to shoot your lowest rounds of the season and he closed out the play-off in real style. Huge congratulations from #TeamCallaway on becoming a two-time winner on the European Tour.”
