Cape Town South Africa (January 15, 2017) - Beginning his final round 3 shots clear of the field, TaylorMade's Graeme Storm held off a stern challenge from a stout field at the South African Open, capturing his second career European Tour victory. Playing his new 2017 TaylorMade M1 440 Driver, Storm drove the ball superbly all week, averaging 301 yards off the tee and hitting 71% of fairways for the tournament.

After the round, Storm commented it was "a dream come true", especially after narrowly avoiding losing his card last fall.

The 2nd win for Storm on the European Tour also marks the first worldwide victory for the new 2017 M1 Driver, launched in early December and available at retail beginning 1/27.

"We set the back track to higher and set the hosel 1-click lower. He [Storm] dropped spin, kept his launch, and added yards. He couldn’t believe how easy the switch was."
Chris Trott, Director of Global Tours
