Graeme McDowell signs multi-year contract extension with Srixon

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- Graeme McDowell has agreed to terms on a multi-year contract extension with Srixon to remain a member of their PGA TOUR staff. No additional details regarding the contract were made available. McDowell, winner of the 2010 U.S. Open and 2013 RBC Heritage, is also a nine-time winner on the European Tour. McDowell will continue to play Cleveland® woods, Srixon® irons, Cleveland® wedges and Srixon® balls. He will wear a Srixon® hat and glove and carry a Srixon® bag.

"We couldn't be more thrilled that Graeme has decided to remain a member of Srixon's PGA Tour staff," said Todd Harman, President of Cleveland® Golf/Srixon® - U.S.A. "Graeme 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 honored 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."

McDowell, also known as G·Mac, was a member of Team Europe during the 2010 and 2012 Ryder Cup, where he contributed significantly toward his team's dramatic victories over the United States. G·Mac was voted 2010 Player of the Year by the Golf Writers Association of America and joint 2010 Player of the Year on the European Tour.

"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 current bag and I'm playing some of the best golf of my career. Much of that has to do with their exceptional equipment, coupled with the tremendous support they've continually given me. I'm now looking to taking things forward again and accomplishing many of my professional goals over the coming years."

McDowell's G·Mac Foundation works to support children's medical research in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the United States. For more information on The G·Mac Foundation, or to make donations, please visit the charity section at www.graememcdowell.com.
