Herzogenaurach, Germany, March 3, 2009– On Sunday, March 1st, PUMA® Golf athlete Geoff Ogilvy won the World Golf Championship (WGC) - Accenture Match Play Championship in Marana, Arizona for the second time in only four years. With this victory, Ogilvy moves up to 4th in the world as well as to the top of the PGA Money List, the FedExCup Points List and the European Tour’s Race to Dubai rankings.

The 31-year old Australian wore PUMA’s latest Spring Summer 2009 Invisibonding golf apparel and the new Swing Crown GTX shoe. The Invisibonding polo delivers stitchless technology for lightweight comfort and ease of motion.
