Emiliano Grillo Captures Charles Schwab Challenge Sporting Puma Golf Footwear and Apparel

 CARLSBAD, CA – PUMA GOLF athlete Emiliano Grillo fought off the competition on Sunday with a final round 68 and eight-under-par total to win the Charles Schwab Challenge, his second career victory on the PGA Tour. Grillo’s first win in over seven years came in dramatic fashion, as he outlasted Adam Schenk in a playoff to grab the prestigious title.

The 30-year-old Argentinian cruised around the famed Colonial Country Club in style, sporting PUMA PROADAPT DELTA Mids for solid footing and comfort, as well as PUMA DEALER TAILORED pants and a MATTR RISING polo shirt for style and performance. MATTR (Materials, Technology, & Research) is a performance fabric designed to provide the highest level of comfort in a wide variety of conditions. A technical, moisture-wicking and fast-drying material, MATTR performance no doubt played a hand in keeping Emi cool and calm on his way to victory.

“It’s fantastic to see Emiliano clench another PGA Tour win,” said Dan Ladd, President & GM, COBRA PUMA GOLF. “He really showed a lot of heart on Sunday coming down the stretch and ultimately prevailed in the playoff. We’re thrilled for him and his family.”

Links Golf Club Partners With Clayton, Devries & Pont To Renovate Spey Bay Golf Course

FOCHABERS, SCOTLAND  – Links Golf Club announced a partnership with Clayton, DeVries & Pont (CDP) to renovate Spey Bay Golf Course in Moray, Scotland. The historic golf course, which was officially purchased in May 2023, sits at the picturesque mouth of the River Spey in Northern Scotland.
Set to begin in fall 2023, the project will include a substantial renovation to focus on maximizing the dramatic coastline and enhancing shot variety and playability throughout the course. Founded in 2019, CDP is the partnership of three of the world’s foremost architecture practices that have helped to deliver some of the world’s top-rated golf courses including Cape Wickham Links (Tasmania), Barnbougle Dunes (Tasmania), Kingsley Club (U.S.), and Greywalls at Marquette (U.S.). Among its current projects, CDP is retained to advise two other Scottish links – Southerness in Dumfries & Galloway and Monifieth in Angus. It has also designed and is overseeing the construction of Seven Mile Beach, a new links course in Hobart, Tasmania.

Built in 1907 by legendary architect and golf instructor Ben Sayers, Spey Bay has sustained as a classic links course for avid local golfers and members of the club. The renovation will include a modernization of the golf course with added focus on taking full advantage of the native sand dunes along the coast as well as providing more variety of shots off the tee and angles of attack from the fairway. Well placed and dramatic bunkers will also form part of the renovation.

Chris Haspell has also been selected as an agronomy consultant throughout the renovation process. Haspell is best known for his work on some of the world’s most prestigious golf courses, including Castle Stuart Golf Links, Cabot Links and Brora Golf Club.
