Nike Golf powers Swede Pettersson to RBC Heritage win

Published:

Carl Pettersson won his first PGA Tour event since 2010 at this weekend's RBC Heritage, and was helped on his way by a new Method prototype belly putter.

The 34-year-old finished on 14-under-par, five shots clear of former Masters winner Zach Johnson.

Pettersson's display on the greens on Saturday was impressive - he made five birdies in a row on the front nine, and he kept the scintillating putting display up on the final day.

The Swede started the ball rolling with a birdie from all of 25 feet at the first, and followed that up with two more at the fourth and fifth.

Overnight challenger Colt Knost suffered a collapse on Sunday though, carding a 74 to finish on eight-under.

The victory was the fifth of Pettersson's career and it saw him equal Jesper Parnevik's Swedish win-record on the PGA Tour.

In addition to the new Method putter, Pettersson used Nike's VR Pro STR8-Fit driver and VR Pro hybrid.

He also used a combination of VR_S Forged irons and Nike's VR Pro Combo irons - he relied on the VR Pro Forged wedges and Nike's new 20XI S ball.
