Charlie Beljan Wins with New Rotex Wedges, Classic Driver
Beljan, a native of Mesa, Ariz., earned $846,000, a two-year exemption on the PGA TOUR, and berths into next year’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii and The PGA Championship.
“It was incredible,” said Beljan, whose wife, Merisa and newborn son, Graham, flew to the tournament Sunday to witness the victory. “It still isn’t real.”
The win comes five days before Cleveland Golf launches its new 588 RTX CB wedges featuring Rotex Face technology, and Beljan had three of the wedges – 52°, 56° and 60° – in play. Also, Beljan led the field in driving distance, averaging 307.4 yards off the tee with a Cleveland Classic 290 driver (9.0°- Miyazaki™ B.Asha 5X).
“Charlie is a great player with a fantastic attitude,” said Todd Harman, President of Cleveland Golf/Srixon. “Pushing through the physical ailments he experienced shows true determination and grit.”
Beljan also used a Srixon Z-TX™ iron (20°), Cleveland 588 Forged CB irons (4-PW) and a new Srixon Z-STAR prototype ball, while wearing a Srixon glove and carrying a Cleveland Golf bag.
