Wiegele and Kirk play Titleist to maiden victories
June 22, 2010

Victories either side of the Atlantic once again reinforced Titleist's status as the number one ball in golf over the weekend.

Martin Wiegele captured his maiden European Tour victory at the Saint-Omer Open in France playing Titleist Pro V1x golf ball to capture, while on the Nationwide Tour Chris Kirk also used a Titleist Pro V1x golf ball, as well as a full complement of Titleist golf clubs, to claim a first professional victory at the Fort Smith Classic in Arkansas.

Wiegele carded a final round 3-under par 68 to finish on 7-under par, 277 and claim his maiden European Tour title ahead of a leaderboard packed with Titleist golf ball loyalists, including Matt Haines (Pro V1x), Pelle Edberg (Pro V1x) and Robert Dinwiddie (Pro V1x) who were among five players tied for second place. In total a staggering 113 players played a Titleist in Saint-Omer, more than all other golf balls combined and more than six times the nearest competitor on 17.

In the US Open at Pebble Beach 85 players, more than four times the nearest competitor, plyaed a Pro V1 or Pro V1x. marking the 62nd consecutive year that Titleist has been the leading ball at the U.S. Open. France’s Gregory Havret used a Pro V1x to take sole possession of second place in his first experience of the fierce US Open conditions, and Davis Love III used a full bag of Titleist equipment to close with an even-par 71, finishing at 4-over 288, tie for sixth place and earn himself an invitation to the 2011 Masters.

Chris Kirk played the Pro V1x and a full complement of Titleist equipment to fire a 6-under par 64 and claim the Fort Smith Classic by one stroke at 16-under par, almost guaranteeing the 25-year-old a berth on the 2011 PGA Tour.

The victories for Kirk and Wiegele takes Titleist’s 2010 worldwide golf ball win count to 59, compared to 13 for the nearest competitor.
