Steven Brown rolled up his sleeves in the final round of the Portugal Masters to overcome a three-shot deficit and seal his first European Tour title.

The victory secured the Callaway staffer playing rights for next season. The win was set up nicely thanks to an eagle on the par-5 12th, where he used his Callaway Epic Flash 15° fairway wood to find the green.

“Victory is hard to put into words, I don’t think it has really sunk in,” said Brown afterwards. “It is just amazing. The shot I hit into the 12th was probably the best shot I have ever hit, it could not have been more perfect.”

Brown banked €250,000 and jumped up the Race to Dubai rankings, ensuring he plays the season-ending Rolex Series events.


Callaway drivers have over 50 worldwide victories so far in 2019, and Epic Flash is the No.1 driver model across the major worldwide tours.

On the greens, Brown trusted Odyssey’s iconic #7 White Hot Putter. His win further underlined Odyssey’s No.1 status amongst the best players in the world.

Odyssey is, in fact, the No.1 putter on every major tour in this year.
