GMAC wins Heritage using Z Star SpinSkin

 

Despite difficult conditions yesterday at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, SC, Graeme McDowell won the 2013 RBC Heritage in a one-hole playoff over Webb Simpson. Battling swirling winds and a four-shot deficit to start the day, G-Mac, playing the 2013 Z-STAR XV, came out victorious in a legendary final round, taking home the Tartan Jacket and his first PGA Tour victory of the year. The Z-STAR’s Speed Dimple Design provided him with unyielding performance in the wind, helping him to control his shots in the 40+ mph gusts on Sunday.

Graeme played a phenomenal final round, in large part due to his ability to scramble around the greens. He finished #1 in scrambling for the event, making Par or better on 19 of 24 missed greens (79.17%), and maintained his position as the #1 Scrambler on the PGA Tour in 2013. A year ago, McDowell was 174th on TOUR in scrambling, but with a dedication to improving his short game and the new Z-STAR XV with SpinSkin, he has greatly improved his ability around the green. The new Z-STAR with SpinSkin will be in stores this August.

In addition to his phenomenal scrambling stats, he ranked inside the Top 10 this week in Driving Accuracy (T5), Strokes Gained Putting (6th), and Greens in Regulation (T7). This win also has propelled G-Mac back into the Top 10 of the Official World Golf Rankings, currently sitting at #8 on this list. Aside from Graeme’s victory, fellow Srixon players Jerry Kelly and Chris Stroud finished in 5th and 6th Place, respectively. We want to congratulate Graeme, Jerry, Chris and the whole Srixon staff on a tremendous week!
