In the Bag - Branden Grace
Callaway Staff Professional Branden Grace became the first player in European Tour history to win four times in their rookie year, when he added the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, and his largest prize to date of €617,283, to his impressive tally of victories.
This is Grace’s fourth win on the European Tour this season, and it marked his fifth win of this year and the sixth of his career.
It also makes him the youngest South African to win four times in a single season, beating the mark set by his golfing hero and fellow Callaway Staff Professional, Ernie Els, in 2003, who was 32 years and 325 days, whereas Grace is 24 years and 140 days.
Celebrating his win at ‘The Home of Golf’, Branden said: “It feels awesome. I’ve dreamt of this moment my whole life. I had goosebumps this morning thinking about the possibility of holding the trophy here.”
Grace, using a full bag of Callaway and Odyssey product, including the fully adjustable RAZR Fit Driver and HEX Black Tour Golf Ball, started the week in scintillating form, carding a first round 60 (12 under par), over the Kingsbarns Links. He followed up with rounds of 67 over The Old Course and 69 at Carnoustie to lead into the final day.
