Srixon – Staff player Sean Crocker secures maiden DP World Tour title with wire-to-wire victory
August 1, 2022 – Srixon has congratulated its staff player, Sean Crocker on winning a first DP World Tour title on Sunday at the Hero Open at the Fairmont St Andrews in Scotland using the brand’s Z-STAR XV ball, ZX7 & Z-Forged irons, Cleveland Golf RTX ZipCore wedges.
After capturing the first round lead following an impressive round of 9 under par 63, Crocker never looked back, holding on to the lead after the conclusion of every round, eventually securing a one shot victory after holing out on the 72ndgreen for a final round 68.
“Winning a golf tournament is not easy. Eddie (Pepperell) did not make that easy for me either,” said Sean Crocker.
“After the three putt par on 15 I thought I still had a little bit of room. They are not easy holes coming down the stretch. Great save on 17. I thought I could then make it pretty easy – it’s a par five coming in, but I don’t think it’s ever easy to make a par to win a golf tournament. That was pretty special.”
The win moves the American up from 94th to 39th position in the DP World Tour rankings.
Crocker was using the following Srixon & Cleveland Golf equipment at the Hero Open:
- Irons: Srixon ZX7 (#4,5), Z-Forged (#6-PW)
- Wedges: Cleveland Golf RTX ZipCore (50°,56°), RTX 2.0 Custom (60°)
- Ball: Srixon Z-STAR XV
