Oakley Golf is more than a rising tide. Our power-packed team of bold competitors is set to inflict some serious damage to the field at the 111th US Open at the Congressional Country Club in Maryland – June 16-19. Facing a collection of more than 100 of the country’s most talented golfers, the O crew, lead by our young superstar and current World No. 6 ranked Rory McIlroy, will vie for the title amidst the challenging 7,250 yard, Par 70 course. As Top 30 players on the PGA and European Tour Money Lists in 2010, Rory and fellow Oakley hotshot Ian Poulter automatically qualify for the event, while O’s talented Ricky Barnes will look to make his way into the field in the coming weeks.
If walking into Oakley’s super gnarly-looking Interplanetary Headquarters in California this past year wasn’t enough to welcome Rory McIlroy to the family, no worries. The party just started. The young Irish Golf Superstar, fresh off a phenomenal overall performance at the Masters in Augusta this month, is now featured in the second issue of Oakley’s new magazine, One Icon. Step into the culture and spirit of Oakley – and meet the Rory. Read it now!
Karrie Webb’s drought ended…in the desert of all places. Oakley’s Aussie Golfer nabbed her second straight LPGA Tour victory on March 20 at the LPGA Founders Cup in Phoenix after a long two years without a win. All on the heels of a resounding victory at the HSBC Women’s Champions in the tour’s second event of the year. With a final round of 6-under 66, Karrie powered to the top of the leaderboard and fought off fierce challenges from Americans Brittany Lincicome and Paula Creamer to emerge triumphant by a mere shot. Both Webb and Creamer shot their way to a 66, but Karrie had just enough of an edge through 36 holes to snatch the contest.
