One of the biggest names in professional golf is staying put for the foreseeable future, after 2010 U.S. Open winner Graeme McDowell agreed to terms on a multi-year contact extension with Srixon. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
McDowell will continue to use Cleveland woods — he was spotted carrying a new Japan-only Srixon driver at the BMW Championship — Srixon irons, Cleveland wedges and Srixon ball. He will also wear a Srixon hat and glove and carry a Srixon bag.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled that Graeme has decided to remain a member of Srixon’s PGA TOUR staff,” Cleveland Golf/Srixon president Todd Harman said. “Graeme is one of those unique individuals who brings so much to the game of golf. His passion for competition, combined with his love for the game and respect for the fans, has made him the type of ambassador that any company would be honored to have on their staff. The fact that Graeme has chosen to remain in the Srixon family says an awful lot in regards to how he feels about our products, as well as our company.”
Along with 2011 PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley, McDowell is without a doubt one of the highest-profile names on the Cleveland/Srixon staff. McDowell has been a staffer since 2011 when he left Callaway and signed a multi-year deal with Srixon.
“I’m thrilled to remain a member of the Srixon and Cleveland Golf family, one I’ve been part of since my college days” McDowell said. “I couldn’t be happier with my current bag and I’m playing some of the best golf of my career. Much of that has to do with their exceptional equipment, coupled with the tremendous support they’ve continually given me. I’m now looking to taking things forward again and accomplishing many of my professional goals over the coming years.”
