Siem wins with Titleist in China

November 3, 2014

At the first event of the European Tour’s Final Series, Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Marcel Siem chipped in for birdie at the first hole of a three-man playoff to capture the BMW Masters title in the most dramatic fashion. All three players finished regulation play on a 16-under par, 272 leading total, before Siem emerged victorious to seal his fourth career European Tour title. Titleist remained the choice of champions around the world this weekend, as there were further victories for Titleist golf ball loyalists on the PGA Tour, Champions Tour, and South African Tour respectively, bringing Titleist 2014 worldwide golf ball win count to 153, compared to 42 for the nearest competitor.

In testing conditions in China, Siem edged Titleist Brand Ambassador Alexander Levy (Pro V1x) and one other ahead of a leaderboard littered with Titleist golf ball loyalists. Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Jamie Donaldson finished in fourth followed by fellow Pro V1x loyalist Nicolas Colsaerts and Brand Ambassador Romain Wattel (Pro V1x) who tied for sixth place. The BMW Masters also marked the first event that golf ball loyalist Ian Poulter chose to tee it up with the new Titleist Pro V1x prototype golf ball, having tested the new ball at his home course before departing for China. As well as being the choice of the champion, Titleist was also the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the limited field event, with 39 players choosing to trust a Pro V1 or Pro V1x, more than three times the nearest competitor with 12. Siem’s victory also marked the 21st win for Titleist golf ball loyalists on the European Tour this season, more than three times the nearest competitor.

On the PGA Tour, the champion at the CIMB Classic trusted a Pro V1x golf ball to fire a final round 67 and claim his fourth career Tour title with a three-shot win over three players, including Titleist Brand Ambassador Kevin Na. Titleist was also the top choice in golf balls at the limited-field event, which is co-sanctioned with the Asian Tour. In total, 41 players chose the performance excellence of the Pro V1 franchise, nearly three times the nearest competitor with 14. The win also marked the third consecutive victory for a player putting his trust in Titleist golf balls on the 2014-15 PGA Tour season. Titleist also topped the equipment counts at the event for irons and wedges.

Elsewhere, on the Champions Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Tom Pernice Jnr (Pro V1x) birdied the fourth hole of a two-man all-Titleist sudden-death playoff to claim victory at season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship. Pernice Jnr overcame fellow Brand Ambassador Jay Haas (Pro V1), having both finished regulation play on an 11-under par, 269 leading total. On the South Africa Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Keith Horne claimed his second Tour title of the season sealing a one-shot victory at the Vodacom Origins of Golf Final. Horne closed with a final round 67 en-route to a 13-under par, 203 winning total.

A dramatic European Tour victory for Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Marcel Siem, coupled with further wins for Titleist golf ball loyalists around the world, continues to prove that more of the world’s best players put their trust in the superior performance of Titleist to deliver success.
