Levet & Watney continue Titleist's winning form
July 4, 2011

TitleistThomas Levet and Nick Watney trusted the precision of Titleist throughout their bags this weekend as they continued the stunning form of Titleist Brand Ambassadors across worldwide professional tours in recent weeks. Levet claimed victory at the Alstom Open de France, firing a final round 1-under par to finish one shot ahead of fellow Pro V1 loyalist Mark Foster and one other. On the PGA Tour, Nick Watney followed a course-record 62 on Saturday with a bogey free final round 66, to claim his fourth career PGA Tour victory. Levet and Watney join a host of Titleist Brand Ambassadors who have trusted the feel and control of Titleist throughout their bags to top leaderboards in recent weeks.

Playing in front of a home crowd at Le Golf National, the 2018 Ryder Cup venue, Levet trusted Titleist equipment from tee-to-green, including the Pro V1 ball, 910D3 driver, 910F fairway, 910H hybrid, MB irons, Vokey Spin Milled sand, lob and approach wedges and Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter. Levet produced an accurate and controlled display throughout the week in France , firing rounds of 70-70-67-70 to win his sixth European Tour title. As well as being the choice of the champion, Titleist was also the overwhelming golf ball of choice in, with 95 players putting their trust in the #1 ball in golf, compared to 23 for the nearest competitor. Titleist also topped the counts for irons and wedges respectively.

It was a similar story at the AT&T National on the PGA Tour, as Titleist Brand Ambassador Nick Watney trusted Titleist equipment from tee-to-green to lead a world-class field and prove once again that he has the tools and the talent to succeed at the highest level. Trusting the Pro V1x ball and a complete bag of Titleist equipment, including new 712 AP2 prototype irons for the first time, Watney secured his second title of the season and moves to #10 in the Official World Golf Rankings. Watney's winning bag included the 910D3 driver, 910F fairway metal, 910H hybrid, AP2 prototype irons, Vokey Design sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Newport Fastback putter . Watney's success shined a spotlight on Titleist's tour debut of the new 712 series iron family (AP1, AP2, CB, MB), when he immediately put a set of the AP2 prototype irons in the bag and won the event in convincing fashion. Watney topped a leaderboard littered with Titleist golf ball loyalists including K.J. Choi (Pro V1) who finished alone in second, and Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott (Pro V1x), and Titleist golf ball loyalists Jeff Overton (Pro V1x) and Charles Howell III (Pro V1x), as each of the top-5 and eight of the top-10 trusted a Titleist golf ball for their success. Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the event with 80 players, more than six times the nearest competitor with 13, and the feel and precision of Titleist also saw the brand top the counts for iron sets, sand lob and approach wedges and putters.

Victories for Levet and Watney continue Titleist Brand Ambassadors emphatic form in recent weeks, following Robert Karlsson's win at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, Rory McIlroy's record-breaking win at the U.S. Open and Pablo Larrazábal's success at the BMW International Open. Titleist's 2011 worldwide win count now stands at 85, more than seven times that of the nearest competitor with 12.

Emphatic victories for Titleist Brand Ambassadors Thomas Levet and Nick Watney on the European and PGA Tours, continues to prove that the world's best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
