Bogota, Colombia: At just 22 years old, Patrick Rodgers has put the golf world on notice with his first win as a professional.
The Nike Golf athlete finished on 17-under-par at the Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship on the Tour. He edged out his competition in a sudden-death play-off to lock in his first title.
Rodgers is one of the newest members to join the talented roster of Nike Golf, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
The former collegiate standout didn’t waste any time to claim a victory with his new Nike Golf equipment.
Rodgers utilised 14 clubs in his win in Colombia, including the Nike Vapor Pro driver that blends three key technologies: Nike’s new FlyBeam reinforced Covert Cavity Back design, a re-engineered Compression Channel and FlexLoft 2.
He also leveraged Nike’s distinctive Modern Muscle technology, which balances weighting for perfected precision and power, in his Nike Vapor Pro irons.
Rodgers won the tournament while playing the Nike RZN Platinum golf ball. The ball features an innovative Speedlock RZN interlocking core design to help promote better energy transfer between the layers at impact for faster ball speed, longer distance and more stability into the wind.
Before turning pro last summer, Rodgers was a three-time NCAA Division I All-American and 2014 PAC-12 Player of the Year. While at Stanford University, he broke the school record for lowest career stroke average of 71.1 — set by Tiger Woods — with a 70.33 average score.
