Callaway Golf is getting a jump on 2012. With a two-shot victory at the Dubai World Championship this past Sunday, Callaway Staff Professional Alvaro Quiros became the first player to win with Callaway’s new RAZR Fit driver, which is due to at Feb. 17, 2012.
Quiros, who was honored last week for being the longest driver on the European Tour for the 2011 season (during which he predominantly used Callaway’s RAZR Hawk driver), switched to the new RAZR Fit Driver in early November at the WGC-HSBC Champions event.
In Dubai, his fourth tournament with the new driver, Quiros led the field in driving distance by averaging 311 yards off the tee en route to victory. One week earlier, he finished tied for seventh at the UBS Hong Kong Open while averaging an absurd 327 yards off the tee. With Sunday’s win, he vaulted to No. 21 in the Official World Golf Rankings, securing a spot in the 2012 Masters.
In addition to the RAZR Fit driver, Quiros had in his bag: a Callaway X Fairway Wood (17 degrees), RAZR X Muscle Back Irons (3-PW), X-Forged Wedges (52, 56 and 58 degrees), the Tour i(z) Golf Ball and the Odyssey ProType PT10 putter.
