An trusts Titleist to claim first European Tour win at BMW PGA Championship

26th, May 2015

Titleist Brand Ambassador Byeong-Hun An claims his first career European Tour title in impressive fashion at the flagship BMW PGA Championship to lead a three-win weekend for Titleist

Full line Titleist player Byeong-Hun An captured his first European Tour title in record-breaking fashion with a six stroke victory at the flagship BMW PGA Championship. He carded a final round 65 en route to a record-setting 21-under par, 267 victory total, beating the previous tournament record by two strokes. The South Korean was joined in the winners’ circle this weekend by two further players who trusted the superior performance of Titleist golf balls for their successes on the PGA Tour and OneAsia Tour respectively. This now means that 8,559 players across worldwide professional tours have chosen to tee it up with a Titleist golf ball so far in 2015, compared to 1,532 for the nearest competitor.

An trusted Titleist equipment from tee-to-green for his success at Wentworth, including the New Pro V1x golf ball, 915D3 driver, 915F fairway metal, 915Hd hybrid, MB 714 irons, Vokey Design SM5 pitching, sand and lob wedges, as well as a Scotty Cameron Newport putter. The victory means that the 23-year old becomes only the second player to win the European Tour’s flagship event in their rookie season, and secures himself a place in this year’s U.S. Open and Open Championship. It also continues his impressive career, which has seen him become the youngest winner of the U.S. Amateur Championship in 2009 at the age of 17.

An finished six shots clear of two players, including fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Thongchai Jaidee (New Pro V1x). As well as being the choice of the champion, Titleist golf balls were also the top choice of the majority of the field at the tournament with 90 players, more than three times the nearest competitor with 25.

On the PGA Tour, the winner of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial trusted the feel and consistency of a Pro V1x golf ball to secure a one stroke victory. The champion sealed the win with a vital 7-foot par putt on the final hole to finish one stroke clear of three players, including Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth (New Pro V1x) and Pro V1 loyalist Jason Bohn. Titleist golf balls were also the overwhelming choice of the field with 82 players, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 10.

Elsewhere, on the OneAsia Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador JinHo Choi (Pro V1x) trusted a full bag of Titleist equipment to capture the SK Telecom Open. Choi birdied the final hole to claim a one stroke victory over fellow Brand Ambassador SooMin Lee (Pro V1x). In total, nine of the top 10 finishers at the event relied upon a Titleist golf ball for their success.

A record-breaking maiden European Tour title for Byeong-Hun An at the BMW PGA Championship, coupled with further wins for Titleist golf ball loyalists across the world, continues to prove that the world’s best players make a difference in their game by trusting Titleist.
