Titleist #1 choice of PGA Assistants
August 18, 2011

TitleistTitleist enjoyed a clean sweep of all the major product categories at the 2011 Powerade PGA Assistants' Championship held at East Sussex National, as the country's leading young professionals followed the example set by some of the world's best players by choosing Titleist equipment. The impressive counts from the event were led by the legendary Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls, which claimed a dominant number one position in the ball category, whilst the quality of Titleist's golf club range was also demonstrated as Titleist claimed top spot in the counts for drivers, iron sets, wedges, and putters.

The renowned Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x led the way at the Powerade PGA Assistants' Championship, with 101 players putting their trust in the #1 ball in golf. This accounted for 84.9% of the field, more than 11 times the nearest competitor with 7.6%. This mirrors Titleist's outstanding performance across worldwide professional tours and proves yet again that Titleist is the ball of choice at all levels of professional golf.

The success of Titleist equipment continued throughout the bags of the PGA Assistants, with the Tour proven 910D2 and 910D3 drivers contributing to Titleist's popularity in the driver category with 47.9% of players choosing a Titleist driver compared to just 14.3% for the nearest competitor. The 910 driver series has enjoyed considerable success this year, with record-breaking U.S. Open Champion Rory McIlroy and recent WGC-Bridgestone Invitational winner Adam Scott just two of the names to have tasted victory with a 910 series driver in the bag.

The playability of Titleist's Tour proven iron range also helped Titleist top the count for iron sets. A total of 47.1% of the field put their trust in the feel and performance of a Titleist iron, eclipsing the nearest competitor with 11.6%.

Titleist Vokey Design wedges, designed by master craftsman Bob Vokey topped the wedge category, accounting for 58% of wedges in play at East Sussex National, over five times the nearest competitor with 10.9%. Completing a fine week for Titleist at the Powerade PGA Assistants' Championship, was the popularity of the Scotty Cameron range, which topped the putter counts with 31.1% of the 119 player field.

Matthew Cort, a former European Tour player, put his trust in the #1 ball in golf, as he completed a stunning final round of 64 to claim victory. Cort showed supreme control of his Titleist golf ball, coming from 5-shots behind entering the final round to claim an impressive 6-shot victory and claim the £5,000 winners cheque. He has also booked his spot in the Titleist PGA Play-offs which take place in Turkey later this year.

A clean sweep of the major product categories at East Sussex National and yet another professional victory for the iconic Pro V1 golf ball, proves once again that serious golfers opt for the matchless performance of Titleist.
