Prototype Putter Leads Westwood to Victory
PING pro Lee Westwood won the Valle Romano Open de Andalucia on the European Tour using a putter that fellow PING pro Mark Calcavecchia had taken out of his bag after a poor putting round at the PODS Championship. Westwood started using the putter in the second round, tying the course record with a 64, then followed up with rounds of 65 and 67, recording 23 birdies and one eagle in the final 3 rounds. Lee's other clubs include a 9° Rapture Driver
, a Rapture Tour 3-wood
, a G2 5-wood, S58 irons
, and Tour Wedges with lofts of 54° & 58°.
