The Winner's Bag

November 30, 2009

Francesco Molinari (along with brother, Edoardo) captured the first World Cup title for Italy in winning at Mission Hills Golf Club in China. The win was significant for Nike Golf in that Francesco used the company's VR STR8-Fit Tour driver. The club had yet to be released by Nike, however the win led Nike to release the club the day after the tournament ended. Edoardo Molinari's clubs were not available.
