- Grace’s victory is the second for Callaway’s new Epic Speed driver in 2021, after Si Woo Kim claimed The American Express with the same model. The 32-year-old used the new model to good effect on the final day in Puerto Rico, finding 13 of 14 fairways on his way to a six-under 66.
Another of his sponsor’s new models assisted with Grace’s win on Sunday. The former Presidents Cup player ranking third for the week in greens in regulation with his X-Forged CB irons, averaging almost 80 percent for the week and missing just one green during his final round charge.
Grace’s victory is the third by a Callaway Tour staffer on the PGA Tour in 2021, and he continues Titleist golf balls strong start to the year. The Pro V1 and Pro V1x have now been used by the winners of seven of the last nine PGA Tour so far this year.
