Branden Grace has been one of the hottest players in the world over the past 18 months, and he proved it once again with a big win this weekend. Playing with all Callaway clubs in the bag, Grace successfully defended his title at the Commercialbank Qatar Masters.
With so many victories around the world, a 5-0 record at last year’s Presidents Cup, and great performances in major championships, he’s accumulated some incredible stats of late. Here are six you need to know about:
7: career wins for the man we affectionately call “Gracie”. At 27-years-old, he’s already building up quite the trophy case.
11: Branden’s world ranking. He’s one of five Callaway staffers ranked in the top 15, which is the most for any golf company.
306: yards per drive this week, which ranked 6th in the field. Grace first put in his 816 gamer at the Presidents Cup.
2: consecutive wins in Qatar. Branden became the first player ever to successfully defend at this event.
1: He led the field in putting this week. Grace has used his trusty Versa V-Line Putter since 2014 and as you can tell it seems to be working for him.
