Having a professional win any tournament with your putter in his or her bag is a big deal in the putter industry, generating fodder for press releases and bragging rights.
But having three professionals win tournaments with your putters in a single week? Such is the remarkable hat trick accomplished by TaylorMade on Sunday.
Rory Sabbatini won the HP Byron Nelson Championship with a TaylorMade Rossa TP by Kia Ma Daytona putter (try saying that fast). Meanwhile, Michael Allen was victorious in his Champions Tour debut at the Senior PGA Championship with a TaylorMade Rossa Itsy Bitsy Spider mallet. Finally, Yani Tseng won the LPGA Corning Classic with the same Itsy Bitsy Spider in hand.
Let’s review: One brand, two putter models and and $1.75 million in earnings on a single Sunday. To say that TaylorMade had a good weekend would be a gross understatement.
