Stuburt, the world's fastest-growing shoe and apparel company, is celebrating after staff player Graeme McDowell took victory at the Celtic Manor Open last week.

The Northern Irishman and Golf Monthly columnist played some stunning golf on his way to his fifth European Tour title. McDowell secured the €350,940 first prize by three shots from home favourite Rhys Davies.

Hoping to catch the eye of Europe's Ryder Cup captain Colin Montomerie, McDowell, in his Stuburt (opens in new tab) shoes, confidently plotted his way around the Twenty Ten course to claim a first victory since the 2008 Barclays Scottish Open.

McDowell's classy finish secured Stuburt's second victory on Tour this season, following the victory of fellow Stuburt member Charlie Ford at the Turkish Airlines Challenge in Antalya earlier in 2010.

After his victory, McDowell said: "I think it's the best final round I've ever played to win a tournament. The first 11 holes was dream golf and I am ecstatic."

At the outset of the 2010 season, McDowell joined the likes of fellow European Tour player Gareth Maybin, PGA Tour player Garth Mulroy and brand ambassador Darren Clarke in their bid to raise the popularity of the brand.

The 2010 season has proved to be a successful one for Stuburt as they continue to produce the goods both on and off the course.
