Rickie Fowler wins with Titleist at Players Championship

11th May, 2015

Titleist golf ball loyalist Rickie Fowler finishes in stunning fashion to claim his second PGA Tour title at THE PLAYERS Championship and lead a three-win weekend for the #1 ball in golf

Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Rickie Fowler rallied to an incredible finish during regulation play to claim a famous victory at THE PLAYERS Championship. Fowler produced a final round of 67, which included a stunning 6-under par score over the final six holes to finish regulation play on a 12-under par, 276 total, and enter a three-way, three-hole aggregate playoff. Both Fowler and fellow Titleist Pro V1x loyalist, Kevin Kisner, finished the three-hole playoff on a 1-under par total, before Fowler finally claimed victory at the first hole of sudden death, birdieing the famous 17th hole for the third time in the a day. The young American was also joined in the winners’ circle this weekend by two further Titleist golf ball loyalists who claimed victories on the European Tour and South African Tour respectively.

A host of fellow Titleist golf ball loyalists finished close behind the leading three players at TPC Sawgrass, including Titleist Brand Ambassadors Bill Haas (Pro V1x) and Ben Martin (New Pro V1x) who missed out on the playoff by one shot, as four of the top five finishers relied upon a Titleist golf ball for their success. Titleist was also the overwhelming golf ball of choice for one of the game’s strongest fields with 84 players trusting the feel and consistency of Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls, more than four times the nearest competitor with 18.

The win marked the second career PGA Tour title for Rickie Fowler, as well as the 15th for Titleist golf ball loyalists on the 2014-15 PGA Tour season, nearly four times the nearest competitor with 4. While being the golf ball of choice, Titleist was also the field favourite in the iron and wedge categories. The champion also relied upon a Scotty Cameron by Titleist putter, becoming the 12th winner with a Cameron putter this season on the PGA Tour, five more than the nearest competitor.

On the European Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador George Coetzee trusted the performance excellence of Titleist equipment from tee-to-green to capture the AfraAsia Bank Mauritius Open on the second hole of a sudden death playoff. The South African closed with a final round of 69 en route to a 13-under par, 271 leading total, to enter the two-man playoff. It marks his second win of the season, after claiming the Tshwane Open earlier in the year, and the third European Tour victory of his career. Coetzee trusted a full bag of Titleist equipment for his success, including a Pro V1x golf ball, 915D3 driver, 915F fairway metal, 712U 2-iron, CB 714 irons, Vokey Design SM5 gap, sand and lob wedges, as well as a Scotty Cameron Select Newport 1.5 putter. Titleist was also the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the tournament with 96 of the 132-player field playing Pro V1 or Pro V1x, nearly six times the nearest competitor with 17.

Elsewhere, on the South African Tour, Pro V1x loyalist PH McIntyre captured his second Tour victory at the Investec Royal Swazi Open. McIntyre finished with a total score of 45 points, two points clear of fellow Pro V1x loyalist Morne Buys in second place.

A stunning second career PGA Tour victory for Titleist golf ball loyalist Rickie Fowler at THE PLAYERS 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.
