Grame McDowell Joins Cleveland/Srixon


Recommended Posts

Personally, I would rather have McDowell. At the moment I feel his is the more popular of the two. Not to mention the fact that he has a few more years of his career left than Furyk, which would mean more positive exposure for the brand than Cleveland/Srixon would have gained from signing Furyk for a few more years. Like i said, I'd take G-Mac right now, even though I'm mad at him for beating Tiger :blink:

If I just had the year GMac had I don't think I'de be switching things up like this. I know these guys are good but it still can take them some time to get used to new equipment. I'm shocked!

Well done MGS, "quick with the news, you are" ;)

Well, well what a surprise I believed he would stay considering the brillant year just posted, but Callaway are spending so much on Ernie and Phil. But he will also be contracted to the ball.

 

Gmac will be a good signing esp for the European market and because he's Irish the Americans will love him. :D :D

Although Furyk is rock solid, I think Cleveland/Srixon did

just fine getting G-Mac. Its all about branding and if G-Mac

continues his high level of play they'll come up aces for sure.

Be interesting to see what he'll play equipment wise, the driver

is real important to him, irons and wedges not much problen, I

would think, but driver and putter?, well we'll see.

I'd be surprised to see them make him play their putter. They usually put a clause in their giving them leniency on putter choice.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

I think that this was a solid move by Cleveland/Srixon. I think losing Furyk was detrimental, but the McDowell signing really solidifies their roster. Furyk is obviously more popular in the states, but lets be honest...the euro players bring the headlines and McDowell has been on the top of the world for a majority of the golf season so it brings amazing credibility to a brand that has been struggling.

I hated to see Furyk leave the fold, but McDowell will bring more exposure to Cleveland/Srixon.

Couldn't of said it better. I'd stick with Callaway for another year or so. When does this change take effect? He's still all over Callaways website.
