Callaway Golf – Birdie blitz and new course record give Guido Migliozzi ans Rogue ST driver French Open victory
September 26, 2022 – An incredible run of nine birdies in 13 holes catapulted Callaway Staff Professional Guido Migliozzi to a sensational one-shot victory in the Cazoo Open de France at Le Golf National.
The 25-year-old Italian, relying on a full bag of Callaway and Odyssey products to guide him into the winner’s circle, claimed his third DP World Tour title in phenomenal fashion.
A stellar final round of 62 – a new course record – moved him from five shots back overnight, to win by one. He sealed his famous victory with a standout birdie on the final hole, thanks to a 192-yard approach over water that finished just six feet from the pin.
“The shot was something incredible. I went for it and it paid off. My caddie was not happy! It was not the real strategy but I felt I could try,” said Guido Migliozzi.
After shooting rounds of 69, 71, 66 and 62 (-16), to secure a winner’s cheque of €510,000, Guido now has his sights firmly set on securing a place in next year’s Ryder Cup match in his home country.
Guido’s winning bag included a Rogue ST Triple Diamond Driver, Rogue ST Fairway Wood, a trio of Callaway JAWS Raw Wedges, an Odyssey White Hot OG #1 Putter, and a Callaway Chrome Soft X 22 Golf Ball.
On completing a truly epic win, Guido said: “It was one of those days that I love to play golf. I love to battle on the golf course and today I received something back from golf. It was a beautiful day of golf.”
The Rogue ST Triple Diamond Driver is a low spin option for better players and is the latest evolution of Callaway’s Tour-proven Triple Diamond heads. It’s the lowest spinning Rogue ST Driver model, with a neutral-to-fade bias in a compact 450cc head.
Guido’s Chrome Soft X Golf Ball features proprietary Precision Technology, and is faster off the driver with a spin profile that is optimised for Tour pros and better players. Odyssey also continues to be the #1 Putter on Tour and the #1 Putter in Golf.
Neil Howie, President and Managing Director of Callaway EMEA, commented: “Our players are enjoying a truly spectacular season on the DP World Tour and Guido’s victory shows how much confidence is running through #TeamCallaway right now. Guido made a notoriously difficult golf course look very straight-forward with one of the finest final-round displays of the season.”
