Adam Scott goes wire to wire with Titleist for WGC victory
August 8, 2011

TitleistFollowing a sensational 8-under par 62 in the opening round, Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott (Pro V1) produced an emphatic display to secure his 18th career title with a wire-to-wire win at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Firing a final round 5-under par 65, Scott posted a 17-under par total to claim victory by four shots ahead of an all-Titleist golf ball top three. Scott’s victory catapults him into the top-10 of the Official World Golf Rankings and headlined a multiple win weekend for Titleist Brand Ambassadors as Scott Piercy (Pro V1) and Jay Haas (Pro V1) also won on the PGA Tour and Champions Tour respectively.

Trusting the feel and control of Titleist throughout his bag, Adam Scott’s winning equipment included the Pro V1 golf ball, 910D3 driver, 910F.d fairway, 910H hybrid, MB irons, Vokey Design pitching, sand and lob wedges and a Scotty Cameron Kombi long putter. Completing the all-Titleist golf ball top-3 was Titleist Brand Ambassador Rickie Fowler (Pro V1x) and Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald, who both closed with 4-under par rounds of 66. The playability and control of Titleist equipment was evident in abundance in the top-10 as full line players Rory McIlroy (Pro V1x), Zach Johnson (Pro V1x) and KT Kim (Pro V1x) each finished in a tie for sixth.

Joining the host of Titleist Brand Ambassadors towards the top of the leaderboard were Titleist golf ball loyalists Lee Westwood (Pro V1x) and David Toms (Pro V1) as 8 of the top 10 finishers relied on the #1 ball in golf. As well as being the choice of the majority of the top finishers, the precision of the legendary Pro V1 franchise also made it the choice for the majority of the elite field at Firestone Country Club, with 39 players, compared to 13 for the nearest competitor. Titleist also topped the counts for iron sets and sand, lob and approach wedges respectively.

On the PGA Tour, Scott Piercy put his trust in Titleist from tee-to-green as he claimed his maiden PGA Tour victory at the Reno-Tahoe Open. Piercy followed a stunning third round 61 on Saturday with a final round 70 to post a 15-under par total and one shot victory. Like Adam Scott, Piercy trusted a host of Titleist equipment in victory, including the Pro V1 golf ball, 910D3 driver, AP2 / MB irons, Vokey Design pitching, gap, sand and approach wedges and Scotty Cameron Newport putter. Piercy's victory at the Reno-Tahoe Open, coupled with Adam Scott’s win at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational means Titleist full product line Brand Ambassadors have won 13 times on the 2011 PGA Tour. Scott and Piercy join Steve Stricker and Nick Watney (who have each won twice), Johnson Wagner, Gary Woodland, Brendan Steele, Harrison Frazar, Rory McIlroy, Chris Kirk and last week's winner at the Greenbrier Classic, Scott Stallings.

Elsewhere, on the Champions Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Jay Haas (Pro V1) made a birdie at the final hole to claim the 3M Championship ahead of an all-Titleist golf ball top-4. On the Korean Tour, Pro V1x loyalist DoKyu Park topped an all-Pro V1x 1-2-3 to capture his fifth career crown at the KPGA Johnnie Walker Open on 12-under par. These victories take Titleist’s 2011 worldwide win count beyond the century mark for the season, at 103, nearly seven times more than the nearest competitor with 15.

A first World Golf Championship title for Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott, plus further wins around the world for Titleist full-line players and golf ball loyalists, continues to prove that the world’s best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
