David Leadbetter Irivne Facility for The Club Fix

Yesterday in between fittings I was able to take a few snap shots of the new facility in Irvine.

Also on a really weird side note. Shady Canyon CC re-opened yesterday. The weird part being that there was a HUGE fire started by the spark of a golfers driver during his swing. I’ll also post pictures of that later.

CONGRATS TO AI MIYAZATO – FITTED BY BRONSON WRIGHT – WINNER AT SAFEWAY CLASSIC NEW #1 PLAYER IN THE WORLD

During his time at Bridgestone Golf R&D Bronson Wright had the huge opportunity of meeting and testing with Ai Miyazato.

“She is an extremely nice person who has always been very humble. I remember the first time I met her at the Bridgestone Golf R&D offices where she politely autographed a picture for me. Seems like that was just a few days ago that she didn’t have an LPGA tour title to her name, and now she is the #1 player in the world. What a great story that couldn’t happen to a nicer person.”

Bronson was able to test Ai many times during his stint at Bridgestone where he developed enough of a relationship with her to keep contact with Ai in the past years since he left the company. There is nobody happier to see her succeed after so many years of testing, practice and dedication. All the best to Ai in the future and congratulations to all of her recent success. Well deserved!



ARJUN SINGH ATWAL – CONGRATS ON THE VICTORY AT THE WYNDHAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Arjun Atwal becomes the first qualifier in 24 years to win a PGA Tour event! We just wanted to feature him and give everyone a little history on this great journeyman.

Arjun is an Indian professional golfer who has played on the Asian Tour and the European Tour and is the first player born in India to become a member of, and later on win the U.S. based PGA Tour.

After turning professional in 1995 he became one of the leading players on the Asian Tour, topping the order of merit in 2003 and becoming the first man to win a million U.S. dollars on the tour by winning the Hero Honda Masters on home soil in the same year. Atwal was the second Indian golfer to earn membership of the European Tour after Jeev Milkha Singh and the first to win on a European Tour event when he notched up a five stroke victory in the 2002 Caltex Singapore Masters, which is co-sanctioned by the Asian and European tours. A second European Tour win followed at the Carlsberg Malaysian Open in 2003. Late in the same year Atwal finished seventh at the PGA Tour’s qualifying school in the U.S., earning a PGA Tour card for 2004, making him the first native East Indian golfer to do so. (The most famous golfer of Indian origin, longtime PGA Tour mainstay and multiple major winner Vijay Singh, is a native of Fiji.) In his 2004 rookie season on the PGA tour in America he finished 142nd on the money list.

In 2005, Atwal came close to winning on the PGA Tour numerous times, most notably at the BellSouth Classic in April. After posting a 64 (the low round for any golfer in the tourney) in the final round of the rain-shortened event, he wound up in a five-man sudden death playoff along with Rich Beem, José María Olazábal, Brandt Jobe and Phil Mickelson. On the first hole of the playoff, the par-5 18th, Atwal’s second shot went into the water, yet he almost holed his fourth shot. If he had done so, he’d have made birdie and won (Mickelson, Beem and Olazabal made pars, while Jobe bogeyed.) After two-putting the green, Atwal made bogey, and he and Jobe were eliminated. Mickelson went on to win the tournament. Atwal finished 82nd on the money list in 2005 to secure his spot on Tour for 2006.

After the 2010 RBC Canadian Open, Atwal lost his Tour Card and became ineligible for the FedEx Cup playoffs after his medical exemption, received due to a shoulder injury, ran out and he had failed to earn enough money. He later regained his playing privileges on the PGA tour through 2012 and obtained an invitation into the 2011 Masters by Monday qualifying for and later recording his maiden victory on the PGA Tour at the Wyndham Championship, the final tournament of the regular season. He became the first Indian-born player to ever win on the PGA Tour, and was the first Monday qualifier to win a PGA Tour event since Fred Wadsworth won the 1986 Southern Open.

So again a big congratulations to Arjun Atwal on his victory today!
