TED POTTER, JR. WINS AT&T PEBBLE BEACH PRO-AM WITH Z-STAR XV GOLF BALL

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – February 11, 2018 – Trusting the tour-validated performance of his Srixon and Cleveland Golf equipment, Ted Potter, Jr. stared down the world’s best on his way to a three-shot victory in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, CA. He followed Saturday’s brilliant 62 with a near-flawless final round to capture his second career PGA Tour victory.

Entering the final-round tied for the lead, Potter bogeyed the opening hole to drop one behind the lead.  That would prove to be the only blemish on the card for Potter on Sunday, as he reclaimed the lead by the fifth hole, and never relinquished it.  Potter knows a thing or two about overcoming adversity. After his first PGA Tour victory in 2012, he would suffer a devastating ankle injury that took years to recover from.  This win is a true testament to Ted and his fight back to the top.

“It’s definitely pleasing, it was a struggle there, when you break your ankle and you don’t know what’s going to happen with your golf swing,” Potter said. “To come back from that, I mean, it’s just unbelievable right now.”

Potter’s Z-STAR XV golf ball and Cleveland RTX-3 wedges helped him to a flawless short-game performance all week which also earned him the number one spot for most birdies in the field (24) and jumped up 102 spots in the FedEx Cup Rankings. On the day, Potter was perfect around the greens, converting every up and down opportunity he faced.

In Ted Potter’s Bag:

  • Srixon Z-STAR XV golf ball
  • Cleveland RTX-3 wedges (54°, 60°) with True Temper Dynamic Golf Tour Issue S400 shafts
  • Srixon Staff bag, hat, and glove

Silvies Valley Ranch Debuts McVeigh’s Gauntlet With Caddies That Are The G.O.A.T.

SILVIES, OREGON – February 7, 2018 – As far as caddies go, Steve Williams, Mike “Fluff” Cowan, Jim “Bones” Mackay and James “Tip” Anderson are a few of the G.O.A.T.s. Partnering with golf legends like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Arnold Palmer, they brought trust, honesty and guidance to the game, enhancing the play of all those who walked alongside them. In 2018, The Retreat & Links at Silvies Valley Ranch will provide the same type of on-course support for its guests when it debuts a new 7-hole challenge course, McVeigh’s Gauntlet, this summer, offering G.O.A.T. caddies to their guests – literally.

Born and bred at Silvies Valley Ranch, professionally trained American Range Goat caddies will be available for hire on McVeigh’s Gauntlet, the latest golf experience to open at The Links at Silvies Valley Ranch. Saddled up with a custom-designed goat caddie pack that carries drinks, golf balls, tees and a few clubs, the goats will join players on The Gauntlet, bringing an entirely new sense of whimsy, entertainment and fun to the golf experience.

“We’re taking the golf experience at Silvies Valley Ranch to a new level in 2018,” says Dr. Scott Campbell, veterinarian and owner of The Retreat & Links at Silvies Valley Ranch. “We’ve been developing an unprecedented caddie training program with our head caddie, Bruce LeGoat, to ensure that he and his team are ready for the opening of The Gauntlet this summer. We’re truly redefining both goat and golf operations at the ranch. Can you think of another course where its caddies were literally born, raised and fully educated on-property? We will get you a caddie who really knows the course and won’t give you any bad advice – and they work for peanuts!”
