HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – March 6, 2017 – Srixon, Cleveland Golf and XXIO are proud to congratulate staffer Inbee Park for her stunning comeback victory over the weekend at the LPGA HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore. Park, who began the final round at Sentosa Golf Club three shots off the lead, shot a course-record 64 in Sunday's final round to post a 19-under-par total and win by one stroke. It was only her second LPGA start since coming back from a major thumb injury that forced her to miss six months of action. "I thought it might take maybe a couple months to get back out on the Tour and to get my rhythm back. I thought I was going to be just a little bit rusty," said Park. "That's how I felt last week. This week was totally different. Especially the final round, [which] was just what I wanted."
Srixon also congratulates Dean Burmester for winning the European Tour Tshwane Open in Waterkloof, South Africa. Burmester, who plays the new Srixon Z-STAR XV golf ball, closed with a 6-under-par 65 in the final round at Pretoria Country Club to win by three strokes. It's the first career European Tour victory for Burmester, a 27-year-old South Africa native who has logged top-10 finishes in four of his first seven global starts in 2017. Their golf games may be different, but Burmester and Park do have one important thing in common: they trust new Srixon Z-STAR Series golf balls on every shot. Burmester relied upon the incredible distance of the dualcore Z-STAR XV for his breakthrough win, and Park leaned on the exceptional feel and spin control of Z-STAR to top one of the strongest LPGA fields of the season.
Park also has the XXIO9 driver and new XXIO Forged irons (5-P) in the bag. XXIO, one of the most successful golf brands in Japan, creates premium, high-performance clubs for golfers with moderate swing speeds. Srixon / Cleveland Golf / XXIO re-signed Inbee Park to a multi-year contract for playing its equipment at the start of 2017. Srixon / Cleveland Golf / XXIO is proud to have the LPGA Hall of Fame member on its staff.
