Stricker prolongs Titleist's 100% ball and iron winning streak
February 8, 2010

Steve Stricker continued Titleist’s spectacular winning streak on the 2010 PGA Tour season as won his eighth career PGA Tour victory at the Northern Trust Open. It was his fourth title in just eight months and moved him up to no. 2 in the world, no. 1 among active players.

Stricker’s win was the fifth in a row for Titleist golf balls and Titleist irons on the PGA Tour, making it a 100% 2010 sweep to date, following victories for Geoff Ogilvy, Ryan Palmer, Bill Haas and Ben Crane. Stricker fired a final round 1-under par 70 to finish on 16-under par, two shots ahead of Pro V1x player Luke Donald.

As well as playing the Titleist Pro V1 ball at the Riviera Country Club, Stricker used a Titleist 909D3 driver, 906F fairway, 909H hybrids, 755 irons and Vokey Design Spin Milled sand and lob wedges. He was one of 79 players using either the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, compared to 18 for the nearest competitor. Titleist also topped the counts for iron sets, hybrids, sand, lob and approach wedges and putters respectively.

Elsewhere, Jim Herman won an all Titleist golf ball play-off as he beat Chris Kirk in a play-off to claim his first Nationwide Tour victory at the Moonah Classic. Herman and Kirk tied on 11-under par, one shot ahead of Robert Gates, who continued his strong start to the 2010 season, having used a bag full of Titleist equipment to win the New Zealand Open last week.

On the Asian Tour, Gaganjeet Bhullar fired a final round course record 8-under par to beat fellow Pro V1x player Hwang Inn-choon by one shot and claim the season-opening Asian Tour International. These victories have now taken Titleist’s 2010 worldwide golf ball win tally to 12 compared to just 3 for the nearest competitor.
