Readers, we have so much exciting news today I do not know where to begin! First and foremost: Cleveland Golf is proud to welcome Jeff Overton to our team next year. Overton, a member of the United States’ 2010 Ryder Cup team, is coming off a career year with three second place and two third place finishes.  Overton also boasts the unique distinction of being one of only two Americans ever to make it onto the U.S. Ryder Cup team without having won on the PGA Tour.

“Jeff is an extremely talented player who is an ideal fit for our staff,” said Greg Hopkins, CEO of Cleveland® Golf/Srixon. “It’s always exciting for us to have a rising star, playing the best golf of his young career, choose to play our products and want be a part of our team. We’re thrilled to have him represent Cleveland Golf.”

Overton, who has risen from mid-west obscurity to become one of the PGA Tour’s brightest prospects, posted a career-best six top-10 finishes in 2010, beginning with a runner-up finish at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. In 2010, Overton was also a runner-up at the HP Byron Nelson Championship and the inaugural Greenbrier Classic, as well as the 2007 Wyndham Championship.

“Cleveland Golf is the perfect match to help support me both on and off the course,” said Overton. “Cleveland Golf’s passion for their players and brand was very appealing to me. I am grateful for Cleveland Golf’s belief in me and I am really excited for the 2011 season.”

Overton, who was born in Evansville, Indiana, attended Indiana University, where he graduated in 2005 with a degree in Sports Marketing and Management. He turned pro in 2005, graduated from Q-School in his first attempt and started to play on the Tour in 2006. Overton will play Cleveland® woods, irons and wedges, while wearing a Cleveland® hat and carrying a Cleveland® bag.

Secondly, Golf Digest released the Drivers portion of the Hot List today, and Cleveland Golf has been awarded a Gold Ranking! The rest of the results have yet to be released, but we are extremely pleased with the early results.
