Titliest racks up weekend of 8 worldwide wins for 140 and counting
October 10, 2011

TitleistFor the third consecutive week, Titleist Brand Ambassadors celebrated a European and PGA Tour double victory as Lee Slattery and Bryce Molder continued the winning form of Titleist Brand Ambassadors around the world. Following the example set by fellow full line Titleist players Kevin Na, Michael Hoey, Bill Haas and Kenneth Ferrie, who have each trusted a full bag of Titleist equipment to win on the European or PGA Tour in recent weeks, Lee Slattery and Bryce Molder won their maiden titles at the Bankia Madrid Masters and Frys.com Open respectively. They were joined by full line Titleist players Rickie Fowler and Brad Faxon, who claimed victories on the OneAsia and Champions Tours, and four other Pro V1 loyalists as Titleist golf balls enjoyed a stunning 8-win weekend.

Trusting a host of Titleist equipment in Spain, Slattery’s winning bag included the Pro V1x golf ball, 910D2 driver, new 712 CB irons, Vokey Design Wedges and Scotty Cameron putter. Slattery posted a 15-under par total to claim victory over a top-5 that included four Titleist golf ball loyalists. The feel and control of the legendary Pro V1 franchise also saw Titleist top the golf ball count, with 73 players, compared to 20 for the nearest competitor.

There was further success for the New 712 iron series on the PGA Tour, as Bryce Molder became the 15th different full line Titleist player to win on the 2011 schedule. Molder trusted Titleist equipment from tee-to-green including the Pro V1x golf ball, 909D3 driver, 909F2 fairway metal, 910H hybrid, new 712 CB irons, Vokey Design wedges and Scotty Cameron Newport putter. Molder prevailed in a six-hole play-off against Pro V1x loyalist Briny Baird, with Titleist Brand Ambassador Bud Cauley (Pro V1) rounding out the all-Titleist top-3. Titleist was also the choice of the majority of the field with 88 players, nearly seven times the nearest competitor with 13 and also topped the counts for hybrids, iron sets, sand, lob and approach wedges and putters respectively.

Full line Titleist Ambassador Rickie Fowler also trusted Titleist from tee-to-green to claim his maiden victory this weekend as he lead from start to finish at the OneAsia Tour’s Korea Open. Fowler’s winning equipment included the Pro V1x golf ball, 910D3 driver, 909F fairway, New 712 MB irons, Vokey Design wedges and Scotty Cameron putter. Fowler followed a sensational 8-under par 63 on Saturday with a closing 68 to edge Titleist Brand Ambassadors Rory McIlroy (Pro V1x) and Kim Meen-whee (Pro V1x) who finished second and third respectively. Titleist was also the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 104 players, 13 times the nearest competitor with 8, and also topped the counts for fairway metals, hybrids, iron sets, sand, lob and approach wedges and putters.

Elsewhere, Titleist Brand Ambassador Brad Faxon (Pro V1) captured his first Champions Tour title at the Insperity Classic edging Pro V1x loyalist Tommy Armour III with a 10-under par total of 134. On the LPGA Tour, 10 of the top-11 places were filled by Titleist golf ball loyalists, led by Yani Tseng (Pro V1x) who won her 9th title of the season. On the Nationwide Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Miguel Carballo posted a 24-under par total to claim his second Nationwide Tour title at the Children’s Hospital Classic. On the Asian Tour, it was a Titleist Pro V1x 1-2 as Lu Wei-chih won the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship from Lu Wen-teh. On the Japan Tour, Kenichi Kuboya (Pro V1x) won his fifth Japan Golf Tour title at the Canon Open. These victories take Titleist’s 2011 worldwide golf ball win count to 140, compared to 22 for the nearest competitor.

Victories for Titleist Brand Ambassadors Lee Slattery, Bryce Molder, Rickie Fowler and Brad Faxon, as well as a clean sweep across worldwide professional tours for Titleist golf ball loyalists, continues to prove that the world’s best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
