Ben Crenshaw Joins Cleveland Golf
Legendary golf professional Ben Crenshaw has joined Cleveland® Golf as a member of their tour staff, as well as a design consultant for both the Never Compromise® and Cleveland® Golf putter lines.
Crenshaw, a multiple Masters champion, has amassed a total of 29 professional wins over the course of his career, 19 of which were won on the PGA Tour.
Crenshaw won several professional events outside the PGA Tour, including individual and team titles in the World Cup of Golf, in 1988.
He spent 80 weeks in the top-10 of the Official World Golf Rankings from 1987 to 1989. Crenshaw, who served as captain for the victorious 1999 United States Ryder Cup team, will play Cleveland Golf clubs and carry a Cleveland bag.
“We are thrilled to have Ben as a member of our team,” said Todd Harman, President of Cleveland® Golf/Srixon®.
“We feel honored to have a living legend like Ben Crenshaw work with us regarding putter designs and promotions for our Cleveland Golf and Never Compromise brands.”
Crenshaw is widely regarded as one of the best putters in golf history. His effortless stroke on the greens allowed him to master even the speediest of greens — including those at Augusta National Golf Club. While winning the 1995 Masters, “Gentle Ben” did not record a single three-putt during the tournament while using a Designed By Ben Crenshaw putter made by Cleveland Golf.
Since 1986, Crenshaw has also been a active partner with Bill Coore in Coore & Crenshaw, a golf course design firm.
