Hoey and Na complete Titleist 1-2 tour double
October 3, 2011

TitleistTitleist Brand Ambassadors Michael Hoey and Kevin Na continued Titleist’s winning form on both sides of the Atlantic this weekend, trusting the precision and feel of Titleist equipment to complete a win double for Titleist brand ambassadors for the second consecutive week. Victories for Hoey and Na followed wins by Bill Haas and Kenneth Ferrie who won the TOUR Championship and Austrian GolfOpen with full bags of Titleist equipment last week. Both Hoey and Na topped leaderboards littered with Titleist players as the top finishers on both European and PGA Tours put their trust in the precision and feel of Titleist equipment. Among these were Titleist Brand Ambassadors Rory McIlroy (Pro V1x) and Nick Watney (Pro V1x) who claimed the runners-up spots at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open respectively.

At the ‘Home of Golf’ in St. Andrews, Hoey edged fellow Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy to claim his second win of the 2011 season at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Posting a 22-under par total, Hoey trusted a host of Titleist equipment on his way to victory with his winning bag including the Pro V1x golf ball, 910D3 driver, 910F fairway metal, new 712 AP2 irons, and Vokey Design Spin Milled sand and lob wedges. As an addition to his full bag of Titleist equipment Rory McIlroy put the new 712 MB irons and Vokey Design SM4 wedges into play for the first time at the event to claim a second place finish and close the gap at the top of the 2011 Race to Dubai rankings, currently led by Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald. The event saw Titleist top the count for irons and hybrids, whilst the superior feel of Vokey Design wedges also saw Titleist top the wedge count. As well as being the choice of the champion, the legendary Pro V1 franchise also continued as the choice of more players than any other brand, with 100 players teeing-up a Titleist golf ball at the event, compared to 22 for the nearest competitor.

On the PGA Tour, Kevin Na also emerged victorious, topping fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Nick Watney to claim his maiden PGA Tour victory. Na trusted Titleist equipment from tee-to-green to fire a final round 65, with his winning bag comprising the Pro V1x golf ball, 910D3 driver, 910F fairway metals, 910H hybrid, new 712 AP2 irons, Vokey Design sand and lob wedges, and Scotty Cameron putter. Nick Watney also trusted the precision of the new AP2 712 irons, firing four rounds in the 60’s to finish alone in second ahead of Pro V1 loyalist Paul Goydos who tied third alongside one other. Titleist balls were also the overwhelming choice of the top finishers at TPC Summerlin, with 11 of the 14 players who finished among the top-10 and ties putting their trust in the #1 ball in golf. Titleist was also the overwhelming choice of the field with 98 players, compared to 11 for the nearest competitor and also topped the counts for iron sets, sand, lob and approach wedges and putters respectively.

Elsewhere, on the Champions Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Kenny Perry edged fellow Titleist golf ball loyalist Jeff Sluman (Pro V1) and one other to claim his maiden Champions Tour title at the SAS Championship. Perry closed with a final round 2-under par 70 to win in just his 11th Champions Tour start. These victories take Titleist’s 2011 worldwide golf ball win count to 132, compared to 22 for the nearest competitor.

Victories for Titleist Brand Ambassadors Michael Hoey and Kevin Na, as the top-2 finishers on both the European and PGA Tours put their trust in Titleist equipment, continues to prove that the world’s best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
