Jaidee’s Win Highlights Big Week For Odyssey
Jaidee Wins In Wales
Thongchai Jaidee rode a birdie streak over his final nine holes and held on for a one-shot win at the Wales Open. He used an Odyssey Metal-X 2-Ball Belly Putter to capture his fifth career European Tour win.
Thomas Bjorn closed with a beautiful 68 in rainy conditions on Sunday to move up the leaderboard and finish T2 at the Wales Open with a White Hot XG #1 Prototype Putter.
Jaidee’s Victory Adds To Odyssey’s European Tour Dominance
Jaidee ranked second in the Wales Open field in putts per GIR with an Odyssey Metal-X 2-Ball Putter. With his win, the #1 Putter in Golf has now won back-to-back European Tour events. The week before Jaidee won in Wales, the White Hot XG #7 Putter earned a victory at the BMW PGA Championship.
Odyssey Putters have now won 10 European Tour events this year; no other putter manufacturer has more than three victories. Through last week’s event, Odyssey accounted for more than 45 percent of overall player usage on the Euro Tour, more than double that of the nearest competitor.
Odyssey Leads Putter Counts on The PGA and LPGA Tours
Odyssey led the putter count at the Wales Open with 67 putters in play, or 42.9 percent of the field. The next closest competitor had 27 putters in play. The White Hot XG #7 was the most popular putter at the event, and 13 players used that particular model.
On the LPGA Tour, Odyssey led the putter total at the Shoprite LPGA Classic with 40 putters in play. The White Hot 2-Ball, White Ice D.A.R.T. and White Ice 330 Mallet were the most popular Odyssey models for the week. Our Odyssey reps mentioned that there have been a number of requests for Metal-X #1 and Metal-X #7H versions recently.
