Graeme McDowell re-signs with Srixon
Graeme McDowell will remain a Srixon staff player after agreeing a multi-year contract extension with the brand.
The Northern Irishman will continue to play Cleveland woods, Srixon irons, Cleveland wedges and Srixon balls. He'll also wear a Srixon hat and glove and carry a Srixon bag.
"I'm thrilled to remain a member of the Srixon and Cleveland Golf family, one I've been part of since my college days," said McDowell.
"I couldn't be happier with my bag and I'm playing some of the best golf of my career.
"Much of that has to do with Srixon and Cleveland's exceptional equipment, coupled with the tremendous support they have continually given me."
McDowell has won 12 tournaments since turning professional, including the 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach, and represented Europe in two Ryder Cups.
Todd Harman, President of Cleveland Golf/Srixon - USA, added:
"McDowell is one of those unique individuals who brings so much to the game of golf.
"His passion for competition, combined with his love for the game and respect for the fans, has made him the type of ambassador that any company would be honoured to have on their staff.
"The fact that Graeme has chosen to remain in the Srixon family says an awful lot in regards to how he feels about our products, as well as our company."
