Record breaking weekend re-inforces Titleist as #1
August 18, 2011

TitleistWith one of the most extraordinary finishes of the year Titleist brand ambassador Scott Stallings claimed his maiden PGA Tour title at the Greenbrier Classic. Recording consecutive birdie two's at the 72 nd and first play-off holes, Stallings topped fellow Titleist brand ambassador Bill Haas (Pro V1x) and Pro V1x loyalist Bob Estes to join the ever-increasing roll of honour for full line Titleist players. Joining Stallings in the winners' circle this weekend was Yani Tseng, who trusted the precision of the Pro V1x to win the Ricoh Women's Open at the famous Carnoustie Golf Links and become the youngest player across all tours to win five career Majors.

Stallings trusted the playability and control of Titleist equipment from tee-to-green to claim his maiden PGA Tour title, including the Pro V1x golf ball, 910D3 driver, 909F2 fairway metal, 910H hybrid, New 712 AP2 prototype irons, Vokey Design Spin Milled pitching, sand, lob and approach wedges and Scotty Cameron putter. Joining Stallings at the top of the leaderboard on 10-under par after 72 holes was Bill Haas who also trusted the precision and feel of Titleist equipment throughout his bag, and Bob Estes, who completed the all-Titleist Pro V1x play-off. A host of Titleist golf ball loyalists also recorded strong finishes as 9 of the top-10 on the leaderboard put their trust in the #1 Ball in Golf. This included Pro V1x loyalists Brendon de Jonge, Cameron Tringale, Webb Simpson and Kyle Stanley plus Pro V1 players Jimmy Walker and Gary Woodland. Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at The Greenbrier Classic with 109 players, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 14, and also topped the counts for iron sets, sand, lob and approach wedges and putters respectively.

With his victory at The Old White TPC, Stallings joins fellow Titleist Brand Ambassadors Nick Watney and Chris Kirk in winning with a set of new 712 prototype irons. Stallings' victory with the New 712 AP2 follows soon after Watney's win at the AT&T National also using the new 712 AP2, and Chris Kirk, who won the Viking Classic with the new 712 CB prototype irons in his bag.

On the LPGA Tour, Yani Tseng continued her dominance of the Majors, trusting the Pro V1x to follow her ten-shot victory at last month's Wegman's LPGA Championship with a four-shot victory at the Ricoh Women's British Open. Tseng posted a sensational 16-under par total at Carnoustie, including three birdies in her final five holes to become the youngest player across any tour to win five career Majors. Pro V1x loyalist Brittany Lang finished second on 12-under par, as 102 players in the field put their trust in the feel and control of the Pro V1 franchise, compared to 11 for the nearest competitor.

Elsewhere, on the South African Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Jean Hugo came through an all-Titleist golf ball play-off to win the Vodacom Origins of Golf. Hugo closed with an 8-under par 64 to claim his 12 th career Sunshine Tour victory. These victories take Titleist's 2011 worldwide win count to 99, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 14.

A maiden PGA Tour victory for Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Smallings as well as a record breaking Major victory for Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng and further wins for Titleist golf ball loyalists around the world, continues to prove that the world's best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
