Jim Colbert leads a 1-2 finish for Callaway Golf and the 'Rule 35' ball at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf

Carlsbad, California (ots-PRNewswire) -

Callaway Golf (NYSE: ELY)
Staff Professional Jim Colbert and his partner teamed to successfully
defend their title at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. Colbert and
his partner each used the Callaway Golf "Rule 35(R)" Firmfeel(TM)
(red logo) ball in their three-stroke victory. The same ball model
was also used by the second-place team of Callaway Golf Staff
Professionals Bruce Fleisher and David Graham, giving the "Rule 35"
Firmfeel model sole ownership of the top two spots on the event's
All four members of the top two teams at the Liberty Mutual
Legends of Golf -- an unofficial event that is a mainstay on the
Senior PGA Tour schedule -- also used drivers, fairway woods, irons
and putters made by Callaway Golf. Colbert, who recently won the SBC
Senior Classic, used 13 Callaway Golf(R) clubs, including a Big
Bertha(R) Hawk Eye(R) VFT(TM) Titanium Driver, Big Bertha Steelhead
Plus(TM) 3-wood and 5-wood, Steelhead(R) X-14(R) Irons and an
Odyssey(R) White Hot(R) 7 Putter. His partner used 11 Callaway Golf
clubs, including a Hawk Eye VFT Pro Series Titanium Driver, Steelhead
X-14 Pro Series Irons and an Odyssey White Hot 5 Putter. The duo
combined for a 20-under-par 124 in the rain-shortened 36-hole
best-ball event, including a 59 in the opening round.
Of the 20 players comprising the top 10 teams at this year's
Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf, 12 relied upon the exceptional
combination of distance and spin built into the "Rule 35" Firmfeel
ball. The "Rule 35" ball was the number 2 ball in play at the Liberty
Mutual Legends of Golf.
Drivers made by Callaway Golf also had success on the PGA Tour, as
the winner of the BellSouth Classic used a Hawk Eye VFT Titanium
Driver to capture his first title since 1997. The winner survived a
gusty 36-hole final day, posting a driving distance average of 288.3
yards for the event. Callaway Golf Staff Professional Charles Howell
finished tied for sixth at the event, his best PGA Tour finish of the
season. Howell's driving distance average for the event was 298
yards, and he earned US$103,290 in the process. Howell used 11
Callaway Golf clubs at the BellSouth Classic, including a Hawk Eye
VFT Pro Series Titanium Driver, a Steelhead Plus 4-wood, Steelhead
X-14 Pro Series Irons and an Odyssey TriHot(TM) 3 Putter. Howell also
used the "Rule 35" Firmfeel ball model. Overall, three of the top 10
finishers at the event used Hawk Eye VFT Titanium Drivers.
Overseas, the Big Bertha ERC(TM) II Forged Titanium Driver once
again enjoyed its highest PGA European Tour usage numbers of the
year. A total of 50 golfers used an ERC II at the Open de Argentina,
up from 47 at last week's Sao Paulo Brazilian Open. Of the 50 golfers
to put an ERC II in Argentina, only two were Callaway Golf Staff
Professionals -- meaning that the other 48 chose to play the ERC II
without financial incentive. For the year, the ERC II is the
most-played single driver model on the PGA European Tour, and
Callaway Golf is the most-played driver brand on the tour.
