Crocker to play Srixon, Cleveland gear

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – October 26, 2017 – Srixon and Cleveland Golf are pleased to announce the recent addition of Sean Crocker to their professional tour staff. Crocker, one of the world’s top-ranked amateurs before recently turning professional, agreed to terms on a multi-year contract. Crocker will use Srixon irons, Cleveland wedges, and a Srixon golf ball. In addition, Crocker will wear a Srixon hat and glove, and carry a Srixon bag. 

Crocker, a 21-year-old from Westlake Village, California, spent three seasons at The University of Southern California as a member of the Trojans Men’s Golf team. While at USC, Crocker helped his team to NCAA Championship Match Play (Top 8 teams) in all of his three seasons, including a program-best 2nd Place in 2015. Individually, Crocker was an All-American, the 2015 Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, and a three-time All-Pac-12 selection.  Before turning pro this fall, Crocker was among the Top-10 ranked amateurs in the world.

“I’m really excited to be a part of the Srixon/Cleveland Golf team and can’t wait to represent the brand on tour,” said Sean Crocker. “Srixon makes the best golf balls by far and the Z-STAR XV fits my game perfectly.”
