Well almost. While the rest of the select field will be in a dogfight over the million plus bucks first prize our GMac will be using the event to figure out just how high his new srixon weaponry sends his new srixon ball. The Srixon blog have today officially announced what we reported weeks ago- that McDowell is in the Srixon stable.
Along with asking their new charge if he liked Jay Leno, tap ins and going to the beach the “fun” guys at Srixon also got around to asking GMac why he decided to change:-
Coming off the biggest year of your career, what made you switch to Cleveland Golf/Srixon?
I was a Cleveland Wedge player most of my amateur career and my college days. I had a relationship with the guys on and off throughout the years, it was just the right time. Obviously the Srixon golf ball was a ball that appealed to me, I had heard so many good things about it. Let’s be honest, nowadays the golf ball is a huge part of the whole deal and it was a ball I wanted to try out. Instantly I really loved the ball. I was at a stage my career where it is great to come on with a company like Cleveland/Srixon and have input of energy into my career. Obviously, I am trying to get to the next level and become one of the world’s best players. I just think this equipment is what can get me there.
I’ve read the above a few times and it doesn’t mention money, dosh, wedge or moolah anywhere. Ha! However our code cracking department tell us that if you substitute the word “cash” for “ball” in the above statement, it all makes perfect sense.
Well done Graeme, Conor and all concerned; cant wait to do a fresh “what’s in the bag”.
