Carlsbad, Calif. (ots-PRNewswire) - Callaway Golf (NYSE: ELY)
Staff Professional Toru Taniguchi overpowered the field yesterday at the Acom International in Ogawa, Japan shooting a final-round 64, which gave him a six-stroke victory at Ishioka Golf Club.

Taniguchi used 11 Callaway Golf(R) clubs in his victory, including a Hawk Eye(R) Titanium Driver, Steelhead Plus(TM) Strong 4-wood and 5-wood, Big Bertha X-12 Irons and an Odyssey(R) White Hot(TM) 5 Putter. Taniguchi's final-round 64 included six birdies and an eagle. Callaway Golf Staff Professional Eiji Mizoguchi also fared well at the Acom International, finishing seventh. Mizoguchi used 14 Callaway Golf clubs, including an ERC(TM) Forged Titanium Driver, Steelhead Plus 3-wood, Steelhead(TM) X-14(TM) Irons and an Odyssey White Hot 5 Putter. Mizoguchi also used the Callaway Golf "Rule 35" Firmfeel(TM) (red logo) ball.

Taniguchi's victory was one of three recorded yesterday around the world for drivers made by Callaway Golf, including another win for the company's remarkable new prototype driver.

-- The winner of the Safeway LPGA Golf Championship used a Callaway Golf prototype driver to win her first event of the
season. She switched to the prototype driver just prior to the start of the event, and went on to win in a two-hole playoff for the third win of her LPGA Tour career. This marks the second tour victory for this heralded prototype driver, which was used by Eduardo Romero in his 10-shot win at the Canon European Masters two weeks ago. The winner of the Safeway LPGA Golf Championship used 10 Callaway Golf clubs in all, as well as the "Rule 35" Firmfeel ball.

-- The winner of the Oregon Classic was nearly flawless in winning the first tour event of his career. Using a Hawk Eye Pro Series Titanium Driver and a Steelhead Plus 3-wood, the tour rookie was bogey-free over the final 65 holes of the event.

-- The top six finishers at the PGA European Tour's Belgacom Open used fairway woods made by Callaway Golf. That included Eduardo Romero, who finished second using his Callaway Golf prototype
driver and the "Rule 35" Softfeel(TM) (blue logo) ball.
