Nike Golf Athlete Jordan Smith Claims PGA EuroPro Tour Order of Merit Title

(November 3, 2015) – Nike athlete Jordan Smith displayed nerves of steel as he finished atop the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour Order of Merit following a stunning playoff victory at the season-ending Tour Championship in Desert Springs, Spain.

The former Walker Cup player recorded a final-round eight-under-par 64, but having set the clubhouse pace the Wiltshire youngster had to dig deep once more to seal the win after a four-hole playoff.

Smith relied on a full bag of Nike equipment to secure the title, including the Vapor Speed driver off the tee, and the Vapor Pro Blade irons with which he produced a ball-striking masterclass in Almeria on the final day.

The irons feature Nike’s Modern Muscle innovation that balances the CG in the centre of the clubface for maximum ball speed, the highest stability and the purest feel, while the straight leading edges, thin toplines and minimal offset offer the ultimate in alignment and shot-shaping workability favoured by Tour players.

‘At the start of the season, I had a goal to win on this tour, but once I’d achieved that I was determined to kick on and take my game to the next level,’ said Smith.

‘Winning both the Tour Championship and the overall Order of Merit title will give me even greater motivation to continue to work hard, and I am so excited about testing my game out on the Challenge Tour next year,’ he added.

The victory was Smith’s second of the season, following a win at the PDC Open at Chart Hills in August, and the Order of Merit victory guaranteed the 22-year-old a place on the European Challenge Tour for next season, just one tier below the prestigious European Tour.
