The 2014 Waste Management Phoenix Open is in the books, and by a single stroke, the winner of the $1,116,000 purse was the TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0.
“I’m pleased and proud to have won this tournament,” said the emotional driver shortly after the award ceremony. “But I certainly can’t take all the credit. This victory was a team effort, and I couldn’t have done it without my fellow clubs.”
One of those fellow clubs was the Callaway Big Bertha Steelhead III, which handled the TPC Scottsdale fairways in style.
“My relationship with the Srixon Z-Star XV ball is pretty solid,” said Bertha. “It made for an easier day on the course, but we certainly had plenty of competition.”
“We had the whole Titleist team working together,” said the 913 D3. “The 913 F Fairway Wood, the MB Forged Irons, the CB Forged Irons, the Vokey Wedges … even the Pro V1x Balls. We just came up a little short. But make no mistake, you’ll see us in the winner’s circle again soon enough.”
The Ping G25 expressed a similar sentiment. “Our family is our team. My brother, the G25 Fairway Wood; my cousins, the S55 Irons; the twins, the S Wedge and the Gorge Wedge; and the kid, the Anser Milled Putter. The kid felt the pressure missing the final putt and cost us the victory. But that’s okay. Win or lose, we’ve got each other’s back.”
With this victory under its belt, the TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0 looks forward to the rest of the PGA Tour and the victories to come.
“I’m at 9.5 degrees with a UST Mamiya VTS shaft,” the driver smiled. “I’m ready.”
