Darren Clarke wins 140th Open championship by 3 shots

in Iron

Golf's British Open came down to a pressure-packed final round for Northern Irishman Darren Clarke. He'd try to win his first major title at a windswept Royal St.

 

Sergio Garcia proved best able to deal with the strong wind. He is one of the best players never to have won a major, and hit birdies at 2, 4, 5 and 7. He would eventually compile a round of 68 - and finish in a share of ninth.

 

The main contenders came out later in the day. Phil Mickelson made a spectacular start with three birdies and an eagle contributing to an outward 30.

 

Darren Clarke showed he meant business when he eagled the seventh.

Sandwich, England, Sunday, July 17, 2011. 

 

And he enjoyed a bit of luck....this ball somehow skimmed between two bunkers. It wasn't the shot Clarke wanted, but he enjoyed the result. He stayed in good shape on the hole. His iron club Callaway RAZR X Irons also brought him good luck. Then, Mickelson's round started to unravel. He had a horrible performance on the green at 11.

 

The RAZR X is aimed at golfers looking to make the jump from being a high handicap to a single digit player. The RAZR technology creates an iron with distance and forgiveness in mind, but with the versatility and look of a traditional thin sole iron. RAZR X irons are also available in multiple set options that allow golfers to integrate the new RAZR X hybrids into the lower end of their set where consistency may begin to drop off.

 

Razr x irons feature a lower,deeper center of gravity and a consistently hot face for distance and accuracy ,in head-to-head tests ,the new razr x irons are 56% more accurate than a competitor's irons that chases distance at the cost of accuracy ,tighter shots ,shorter putts,lower scores.

Arefined VFT Face and High-Definition Undercut cavity are tailored to each Individual iron,The result is more consistent ball speeds across the face for more distance and accuracy ,even on  miss-hits。

 

Callaway Razr technology shifts the center of gravity 12% loweer and 15% deeper by redistributing 30 grams of weight in the back cavity ,providing the power and forgiveness of a wilde -sole irons with the precision and playability of a thin-sole irons

 

Clarke only needed to play calm, steady golf in the closing stages. He dropped shots at 17 and 18. But by then, he was safely home with his first ever major title.

 

The former Ryder Cup hero had not even made the top-10 at one of golf's four majors for 10 years, and had arrived at Sandwich with young compatriot and US Open champion Rory McIlroy hogging the limelight.

 

Four vintage rounds later, Clarke had survived some of the most testing conditions seen at the Open, and walked away with the Claret Jug.
