Titleist delivers for Haas with FedEx Cup jackpot
September 27, 2011

TitleistWhen golf’s biggest prize was on the line at the TOUR Championship, both Titleist Brand Ambassador Bill Haas and Titleist golf ball loyalist Hunter Mahan (Pro V1x) put their unwavering trust in the #1 Ball in Golf. After tying on eight-under par at East Lake Golf Club it was Haas who emerged victorious, clinching his maiden win of the season at the third playoff hole, and with it, topping fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson to win the FedEx Cup and its $10million bonus. Titleist was once again the choice of champions around the world this weekend as Titleist Brand Ambassador Kenneth Ferrie won the Austrian GolfOpen for his third European Tour title and four other Titleist golf ball loyalists registered wins across the worldwide professional tours.

Haas trusted Titleist equipment from tee-to-green, including the Pro V1x ball, 910D2 driver, 910F fairway, CB irons, Vokey Spin Milled sand and lob wedges and Scotty Cameron Kombi mid putter. Coming into the TOUR Championship ranked 25th in the Play-Off rankings, Haas’ TOUR Championship win propelled him ahead of fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson (Pro V1x) and Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald, as each of the top three in the final FedEx Cup standings put their trust in Titleist golf balls. The precision and feel of Titleist’s legendary Pro V1 franchise made it the choice of a host of top finishers in Georgia, including Luke Donald (Pro V1x), Aaron Baddeley (Pro V1x) and K.J. Choi (Pro V1) who finished tied third respectively. Each of the top five finishers and eight of the top ten in Atlanta trusted the #1 Ball in Golf for their success. Titleist was also the overwhelming choice of the field at the season-ending TOUR Championship, with 20 players putting their trust in the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, compared to four for the nearest competitor. The feel and control of Titleist equipment also saw the brand top the counts for fairways, iron sets, sand, lob and approach wedges and putters respectively.

On the European Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Kenneth Ferrie fired a final round five-under par 67 to claim victory at the Austrian GolfOpen, securing victory with a birdie at the first playoff hole. Ferrie trusted the playability and control of Titleist throughout his bag including the 910D2 driver, 910F fairway, 910H hybrid, new CB 712 irons, Vokey Design wedges and Scotty Cameron Newport putter. Ferrie was joined towards the top of the leaderboard by a host of Titleist golf ball loyalists in Austria, including Joost Luiten (Pro V1) who finished third, Thomas Norret (Pro V1x) who finished fifth and Titleist Brand Ambassadors Victor Dubuisson (Pro V1x) and Bernd Weisberger (Pro V1x) who tied for fifth alongside Pro V1x loyalist Cesar Monasterio. Titleist was also the most played golf ball at the event, with 94 players, more than five times the nearest competitor with 18.

Elsewhere, on the Nationwide Tour, Ted Potter Jnr (Pro V1x) came through an all-Titleist golf ball playoff to win the Soboba golf Classic from Andres Gonzales (Pro V1) and Miguel Angel Carballo (Pro V1x). On the South African Tour, Jean Hugo (Pro V1x) won his third title of the year at the Vodacom Origins Final, ahead of four Titleist full line players among the top-five. On the China Tour, Titleist golf ball loyalist Hsu Mong Nan (Pro V1x) claimed his first China Tour victory at the China PGA Champions Tour Xiamen event by five shots. On the Korea Tour, Pro V1x loyalist SoonSang Hong climbs to the top of the KPGA money list with his victory at the Munsingwear Championship, after beating fellow Pro V1x loyalist DoGyu Park 4&3 in the final. These victories around the world take Titleist’s 2011 worldwide win count to 129, compared to 21 for the nearest competitor.

A sensational victory to claim golf’s richest prize for Titleist Brand Ambassador Bill Haas, as well a third European Tour victory for Titleist Brand Ambassador Kenneth Ferrie and wins across a host of worldwide professional tours, continues to prove that the world’s best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
