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. DAY WINS SECOND GREG NORMAN MEDAL WORLD No.1 Jason Day has won the Greg Norman Medal for the second consecutive year. Day, who has held the top spot in the rankings since March, received the award as Australia’s top performing golfer on the world stage in 2016. The Queenslander won three times this year, at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, WGC-World Match Play and the Players Championship. All three victories came in a seven-week period starting from mid-March. In all, Day had 20 PGA Tour starts in 2016 making the cut in all but one for 10 top-10 finishes. He was also runner-up to Jimmy Walker in his defence of the PGA Championship. His season was, however, cut short by a back injury that saw him withdraw from events late in the FedEx Cup Playoffs as well as the Australian Open and World Cup as he recuperates in preparation for next year. FULL STORY> ________________________________________________ MORE SUPPORT FOR DISABLED GOLFERS GOLF Australia has become an Affiliate Member of the European Disabled Golf Association in recognition of its growing work in support of golfers with a disability. Australian golf’s governing body was welcomed into the EDGA international family during the organisation’s annual assembly in Portugal. The EDGA, which assists golfers with a disability to compete internationally and sees them as "golfers first", is supported by the European Tour, the R&A and 18 of Europe’s national golf federations, plus several valued partners. Supported by globally respected health and disability experts, the organisation is currently in discussions with the International Golf Federation as it seeks to influence the paralympic bodies so that elite golfers with a disability are able to take their golf to the highest international level. Australia joins EDGA as it continues to strengthen its support for golfers with disability through PGA coaching, developing participation programs and the development of competition at different levels. The link with EDGA will afford Australian golfers the chance to play in EDGA events (12 tournaments were held in 2016) and also to register their scores to be part of the international Ranking for Golfers with Disability, supported by PING.
