Cleveland Golf/Srixon congratulates Will Wilcox on Web.com Tour win

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- Cleveland Golf/Srixon congratulates staffer Will Wilcox for his victory at the Web.com Tour's 2013 South Georgia Classic. Wilcox, a 26-year old from Birmingham, AL, was able to control his nerves to shoot a 1-over 73, finishing four strokes ahead of his nearest competitor. Wilcox's win on Sunday was his first victory ever on the Web.com Tour.

"This is just surreal," Wilcox said. "I've been dreaming about this my whole life. I've just made some big changes in my life. That's what I needed to do - and [need to] continue with."

During his previous round on Saturday, Wilcox shot a course record 9-under par 63, five shots better than anyone else in the field. Wilcox's round included hole-outs from 135 and 193 yards away, on two of the most difficult holes.

Wilcox earned $117,000 and moved from No. 55 to No. 3 on the Web.com Tour Money List for 2013, putting him in a great position to earn his PGA Tour card for 2014. Fellow Cleveland® staffers Zack Sucher and Michael Putnam both finished in 2nd place at -11 (277). All three players used Cleveland® 588™ Irons, Cleveland® 588™ RTX wedges, while playing Srixon® Z-STAR™ balls.

Wilcox played a Cleveland® Classic™ XL Custom driver (10.5°), a Cleveland® 588® MT (3) iron, Cleveland® 588® Forged CB irons (4-PW), and Cleveland® 588™ Precision Forged wedges (52°/58°), while playing a new Srixon® Z-STAR™ Tour Yellow ball with SpinSkin™ technology, which will be released this August. Wilcox also wears a Cleveland® hat, a Srixon® glove and carries a Cleveland® bag.
