Triple Titleist triumphs for Chalmers, Matthew and Abery
November 14, 2011

TitleistAs some of the world’s best players headed down-under this week, the Pro V1 continued its successes as Titleist golf ball loyalists recorded a triple win weekend. Titleist Brand Ambassador Greg Chalmers played a host of Titleist equipment in winning the Australian Open for the second time, posting a 13-under par total at the Lakes Golf Club.

Chalmers was joined in the winners circle by Pro V1x loyalists Catriona Matthew and Warren Abery, who recorded victories on the LPGA and South African Tours respectively.

Chalmers played the Pro V1x golf ball, 910D3 driver, 909F and 910F fairway metals, 909H hybrid, CB irons, new Vokey Design SM4 pitching and sand wedges and Vokey Design lob wedge. Using the latest wedge models from master craftsman Bob Vokey, Chalmers joins a growing list of players who have used the innovative groove design of the SM4 wedges to winning effect, including Rory McIlroy and Bo Van Pelt who won the Shanghai Masters and CIMB Asia Pacific Classic earlier this month.

In addition to the winner, the leaderboard in Australia was littered with Titleist players, including runner-up John Senden (Pro V1), and Titleist Brand Ambassadors Adam Scott (Pro V1), Nick Watney (Pro V1x) and Geoff Ogilvy (Pro V1) who finished tied for fourth with Titleist golf ball loyalist Nick O’Hern (Pro V1). In all, 115 players teeing up the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, including eight of the top-10 finishers, while Titleist was also the top choice in fairway metals, hybrids, irons, sand, lob and approach wedges and putters.

On the LPGA Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Catriona Matthew posted a 12-under par total to win the Lorena Ochoa Invitational by four shots. The 2009 Women’s British Open Champion fired a final round 1-under par 71, to claim her fourth career LPGA Tour title.

On the South African Tour, Warren Abery (Pro V1x) clinched his seventh career victory at the Nedbank Affinity Cup. Avery’s 11-under par total saw him finish two shots clear of Titleist Brand Ambassador Prinavin Nelson (Pro V1x) and Titleist golf ball loyalist Andrew Curlewis (Pro V1x), as each of the top-5 finishers played Titleist golf balls.

These victories take Titleist’s 2011 worldwide golf ball win count to 165, compared to 25 for the nearest competitor.
