Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Bubba Watson shot back into the winners’ circle this weekend by claiming his first victory since the 2012 Masters at the Northern Trust Open, whilst fellow Pro V1x loyalist Thomas Aiken captured his third career European Tour title at the Africa Open. This was the South African’s first Tour victory on home soil, whilst Watson’s win means that 10 of the first 13 champions on the 2013-14 PGA Tour schedule have placed their trust in a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. There were further victories for Titleist golf ball loyalists on the Tour, Champions Tour and Australasian Tour respectively, as players continue to put their trust in Titleist for success around the world.


On the PGA Tour, Bubba Watson fired consecutive bogey-free rounds of 64 over the weekend en route to a 15-under par, 269 victory total and claim a two stroke victory at the Riviera Country Club. This was the American’s fourth Top-10 finish in six events this year. As well as being the choice of the champion, Titleist golf balls were also the overwhelming choice of the field at the Northern Trust Open, with 86 players trusting the performance excellence of a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, compared to 21 for the nearest competitor. Titleist also topped the counts for wedges and putters at the tournament.


On the European Tour, Thomas Aiken birdied the first hole of a sudden death playoff to claim a dramatic victory at East London Golf Club. The South African fired four consecutive rounds in the 60s to post a 20-under par, 267 total in regulation play. Aiken was one of 112 players in the field of 156 to tee up a Titleist golf ball, more than six times the nearest competitor with 18.


Elsewhere, on the Tour Alex Cejka (Pro V1x) won the season-opening Colombia Championship. After inclement weather made the course unplayable for the fourth round, Cejka posted a third round 63 to claim a three stroke victory. On the Champions Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Kirk Triplett claimed his third career Champions Tour title at the ACE Group Classic, closing with a final round 66 for a one-stroke victory. Triplett edged out three players, including defending champion Bernhard Langer (Pro V1) and Duffy Waldorf (Pro V1x) who tied for second with one other. On the Australasian Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Anthony Summers trusted Titleist equipment from tee-to-green to win the Queensland PGA Championship by three strokes. This was Summers’ first career Tour title since turning professional in 1991. These victories take Titleist’s 2014 win count to 21 across worldwide professional tours, compared to four for the nearest competitor.


Headline victories for Pro V1x loyalists Bubba Watson and Thomas Aiken, coupled with further victories for Titleist golf ball loyalists across the globe, continue to prove that the world’s best players put their trust in the superior performance, quality and consistency of Titleist to deliver their success.
