What a great win for rookie David Law at the Vic Open. I don't know the man but I am connected with him through his affiliation with Irish clothing brand Druids Golf and my fondness for the guys at Wilson golf which is having somewhat of a resurgence of late.

The win was also great news for '99 Open Champion Paul Lawrie from whose foundation Law emerged.

Law's win was all the more special given that following two weeks of rules controversies, the Scot actually called a penalty on himself on the 9th of his final round.  To do that then regroup to finish 3-3-3 with a stunning eagle on the last took bottle.

Stats And Equipment Report

In winning Law hit 62.5 of the fairways and averaged 288 yards with his Callaway Epic Flash driver. Using a blend of Wilson Staff C300 Forged and FG Tour V6 irons the Scot hit 55 greens in regulation (22nd in the field) then capitalised most with 27.3 putts per round using an Odyssey Red Versa two-ball putter.  Shot of the round was the Scots Wilson C300 fairway to 8 feet on the final hole to set up the winning eagle.In total Law circled 21 birdies and an eagle on the 72nd hole versus just five bogeys all week.

Phil Mickelson Back With Rogue

Phil Mickelson has his 2018 Callaway Rogue driver in the bag at Pebble Beach and has to come back Monday to dot the i's and cross the t's on a brilliant win.

So how has he gone from not being able to hit a barn door with a banjo off the tee, to being longer and straighter combined than the entire field at Pebble Beach?

The answer is a new found rededication to his body and game over the Winter break.

He is back in the gym working on strength and explosiveness. He's back out on the practice ground working on putting and irons.

He's off sugar completely and working with a nutritionist on a better diet.

As a result of all this and the Rogue driver Phil has found 6 miles an hour extra ball speed with the driver; not bad for a 48 year old!

And he can see in the dark!

This was a great Phil moment too. Hat tip fail!
