Callaway staff player Min Woo Lee used a full bag of Callaway and Odyssey equipment to win the 2021 abrdn Scottish Open held at The Renaissance Club in East Lothian.
The Rolex Series victory earned the 22-year-old a place in his first Major at Royal St George’s this week, just two years after turning professional.
On the final day’s play, the Australian powered his way to -18 and to the top of the leaderboard, with six birdies in a row, adding to rounds of 68, 69 and 65.
In the three-man play-off, he was up against his fellow Callaway staff player Thomas Detry, who also qualified for The Open.
Min Woo’s equipment included a Callaway Epic Speed Driver, Epic Speed SZ Fairway Wood, Apex TCB Irons, Mack Daddy 5 JAWS Wedges, and an Odyssey White Hot OG Putter. He also used a Chrome Soft X Golf Ball.
“It was an awesome day, I was pretty proud of how I played. Six birdies in a row, that was sweet. It kind of happened really quick!” he said.
With a world-class field at Renaissance Club, East Lothian, Callaway products dominated the week, with the brand winning the Driver, Fairway Wood, Hybrid, Irons and Putter (Odyssey) usage counts. Over 35% of competitors (55 players) put a Callaway driver in play, 47 of which were Epic Speed models.
