Since the original Pro V1 first entered the winners’ circle at the Invensys Classic on the PGA Tour in October 2000, the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls have set unrivalled standards in golf ball performance and success. Last weekend, as the best players in the world competed for the richest prize in golf at the final event of the FedExCup, Pro V1 loyalist Henrik Stenson set another milestone as he claimed the 2,013th win for the Pro V1 franchise. Like the inaugural Pro V1 winner almost 13 years to the day earlier, Stenson fired four rounds in the 60’s to earn victory, and added another chapter to the Pro V1’s ever increasing catalogue of records.
Although the Pro V1 was quick to make its mark on the PGA Tour when 47 players put it into play the first week it was available in October 2000 - marking the largest pluralistic switch of equipment at one event in golf history – the Pro V1 and Pro V1x have enjoyed prolonged success at every level of the game. Since that week in October 2000, over 266,000 players across worldwide professional tours have put their trust in the Pro V1 franchise, accumulating an incredible 2,013 victories and firmly positioning the Pro V1 as the most trusted performance choice for the majority of players around the world.
The Pro V1 has tasted success at every level, with the 2001 U.S. Open Champion quickly adding the first Major title to the ever increasing list of PGA Tour victories for the Pro V1. When the winner of The Masters in 2003 won his first green jacket the Titleist Pro V1 had been trusted by at least one winner at each of the game’s four Majors, completed the Grand Slam. The following year in 2004, Titleist completed what has been labelled the ‘Brand Slam’ as all four Major champions put their trust in the Pro V1 or Pro V1x.
Each new model of the Pro V1 has set new standards in golf ball performance and they have all played their part in continuing the longest running success story in golf; Titleist golf balls have been the #1 choice of more players than any other at the U.S. Open for 65 consecutive years and at the Open Championship since records began. Away from the worldwide professional Tours, the Pro V1 also remains the #1 choice at every level of the game including the biggest club professional and amateur events in the world, with the 2013 British Amateur, British Boys Amateur and U.S. Amateur counts all being dominated by the Pro V1 and Pro V1x.
The seventh generation of Pro V1 (and sixth of Pro V1x) was launched in January 2013 and with Major success at The Masters in the hands of Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott and the USPGA Championship with Titleist Brand Ambassador Jason Dufner, as well as Titleist golf ball loyalist Henrik Stenson capturing golfs’ richest prize, the Titleist Pro V1 success story is perfectly placed to continue indefinitely. In 2013 alone, Titleist golf balls have recorded a worldwide win count of 119 across professional tours, compared to 33 for the nearest competitor. The overwhelming majority of players at every level of the game, at every event around the world continue to place their trust in the superior performance, quality and consistency of every Titleist golf ball.
