Furyk Wins Second PGA Grand Slam of Golf


Cleveland Golf/Srixon (SRI Sports Group) congratulate staffer Jim Furyk on winning the 2008 PGA Grand Slam of Golf at the Mid Ocean Club in Tucker's Town, Bermuda.
Furyk won the title in a playoff over recently named PGA Player of the Year Padraig Harrington. On the final hole Harrington had a one-shot lead only to be one-upped by Furyk to force a playoff. On the first hole of sudden death Furyk and Harrington faced eagle putts but Harrington's putt had a little too much speed and he tapped it in for birdie. Furyk then stepped up and sank his 8-foot eagle putt for the victory. Furyk was competing in his fourth PGA Grand Slam of Golf and earned his second win collecting $600,000.

"I've only been the head of the Srixon brand in the U.S. for two months and I'm already seeing great success on the Tours," said Greg Hopkins, President/CEO of Cleveland Golf/Srixon. "Jim won with the Z-URC ball which is just one of the six models that golfers can purchase with a Money Back Guarantee in the North America."

Furyk uses the Srixon Pro 100 irons, Srixon prototype wedges in 50, 55, 60 lofts and the Srixon Z-URC golf ball.
