The Exo-Cage inside the new Big Bertha OS is an extremely lightweight and strong head design that maximises iron forgiveness. Its unique construction strategically repositions weight and allows our next-generation 360 Face Cup to function more efficiently, pushing ball speeds across the face to the limit. Big Bertha OS is iron innovation without limitations. WORLD CUP HEADING BACK TO MELBOURNE THE PGA Tour’s love affair with Melbourne is set to continue with outgoing commissioner Tim Finchem revealing the World Cup of Golf is likely to return to the Victorian capital before 2022. Finchem, who will step down after 22 years on January 1, added with the Presidents Cup being played in Melbourne in 2019 it made sense to set up a permanent PGA Tour office here. “ We really developed a wonderful working relationship here in Victoria over the past 20 years,” Finchem said. “I know when we first came with the Presidents Cup in 1998 to Royal Melbourne, it was a terrific start to that. “ To be able to come over and play Kingston Heath now as well adds to that. “But the reception that we've always got here is very, very positive. “ There is no metropolitan area in the planet that is more sports oriented than Melbourne ... incredible focus on sports by everyone here. The investments that have been made by Victoria in the venues in all sports here is incredible, and to be part of that mix is, we think, very important for golf and golf on a global stage.” Melbourne has impressed the world’s biggest golf tour so much that Finchem wouldn’t dismiss any suggestion of the PGA Tour hosting an annual Tour event here, beyond the Presidents Cup and a future World Cup.

It won over nominations from nearly all of Golf Tourism New Zealand’s marquee golf courses including Kauri Cliffs, Cape Kidnappers, Jack’s Point and Millbrook Resort. World Golf Awards serves to celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism, world-class courses and golf destinations. Professionals working within the golf travel and tourism industry – senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators, agents and media professionals, submit votes. “It is an honour for us to recognise Clearwater Golf Course with the title of New Zealand’s Leading Golf Course,” World Golf Awards Managing Director Christopher Frost said. “With golf hospitality on an unstoppable rise around the world, with more people choosing to play each year, it is destinations such as this which set the global benchmark for the industry.” On top of collecting this prestigious award for the second year in a row, following on from Cape Kidnappers win in 2014, it achieved a rare double by taking out also for the second year in a row the title of best course in Oceania beating the best from Australia (Royal Melbourne West Course) and Fiji (Natadola Bay).
