Chalmers headlines winning weekend for Titleist Pro V1x

December 15, 2014

Full line Titleist player, Greg Chalmers, continued the global success for Titleist golf balls this weekend after defeating Titleist Brand Ambassadors Adam Scott and Wade Ormsby in a dramatic all-Pro V1x playoff to take the Australian PGA Championship. Chalmers posted eight birdies in his final round to complete regulation play on an 11-under par, alongside Scott and Ormsby, before clinching the title at the seventh extra hole. He was joined in the winners’ circle by Pro V1x loyalist Lee Westwood, who claimed his 42nd worldwide win at the Thailand Golf Championship and bolster Titleist’s 2014 worldwide golf ball win count to 172, compared to 47 for the nearest competitor.

Chalmers trusted a host of Titleist equipment at Royal Pines Resort Gold Coast, including a Pro V1x golf ball 915D3 driver, 915F fairway metal, CB irons and Vokey Design wedges. The Australian sealed his place in the playoff with a tournament-low final round of 64, which saw him join third round leaders Adam Scott and Greg Chalmers before going on to claim his second Australian PGA Championship.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott added his name to the ever growing list of players to put the new Pro V1x prototype golf ball into competitive play, and he was joined towards the top of the leaderboard by Titleist golf ball loyalist Michael Hendry and Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Stallings, both of whom also played the new Pro V1x prototype golf ball to finish third and fourth respectively. In total, ten of the 12 players who finished among the top 10 and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success. Titleist golf balls were also the overwhelming choice of the field at the event with 124 players, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 17.

On the Asian Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Lee Westwood fired a final round 67 en route to an 8-under par, 280 victory total to take the Thailand Golf Championship at the Amata Spring Country Club. The win marks the second time the Englishman has claimed this title after capturing the inaugural tournament in 2011. It also marked Westwood’s 14th career Asian Tour title and the 11th win for Titleist golf ball loyalists on the 2014 Asian Tour, nearly four times the nearest competitor with 3. As well as being the choice of the champion, Titleist golf balls were also the field favourite with 79 players, nearly four times the nearest competitor with 20.

An impressive victory for Greg Chalmers in an all-Titleist Pro V1x playoff at the Australian PGA Championship, coupled with a 42nd worldwide career victory for golf ball loyalist Lee Westwood at the Thailand Golf Championship, continues to prove that the world’s best players put their trust in the superior performance of Titleist
