Cink follows fellow Nike Golf athlete Lucas Glover's major win at the U.S. Open and each champion has some major things in common: being the first and second players in history to win with a square-shaped driver, the Nike SQ SUMO" Tour; and they both are the first and second players to win a major championship this year with the much talked about Nike prototype putter.

One of the keys to winning the historic Claret Jug was Cink's solid putting, which assisted him to making an impressive four birdies on the back nine. On the 72nd hole, Cink made a critical putt for birdie to get himself into a playoff position. For the outright win, Cink birdied two of the four playoff holes. Also assisting him in navigating the blustery weather conditions was his Nike ONE Tour D ball, which helped to give him distance and spin control, both of which are key factors in these types of conditions.
