….and Beats World-Class Field at Doral
Carlsbad, CA (March 24, 2008) – Demonstrating a powerful combination of confidence and determination, Cobra ambassador Geoff Ogilvy stared down a world-class field at the WGC-CA Championship en route to a wire-to-wire win. It marked the fourth career victory for Ogilvy, who became just the third player with multiple wins at World Golf Championship events. Ogilvy captured the 2006 WGC-Accenture Match Play, which he followed up with the U.S. Open Championship the same year.
With the event suspended on Sunday due to intermittent weather delays and darkness, Ogilvy returned on Monday to par in over the final nine holes to close with a 1-under 71 and a 17-under 271 total, one shot clear of three players and two shots better than the World No. 1.
Among the equipment trusted by Ogilvy for his success is the King Cobra Speed Pro D (9.5) driver, X Speed (13.0) fairway metal, new Pro MB (3-9) irons and a Pro CB 2-iron. Ogilvy averaged over 289 yards off the tee and displayed his consistency with his irons throughout the event, leading the field in Greens in Regulation with a 76.4 percentage.
