Titleist Brand Ambassador Alexander Levy secured his maiden European Tour title at this weekend’s Volvo China Open where he secured an impressive four-stroke victory. The Frenchman closed with a final round 69, including two closing birdies, en route to a 19-under par, 269 victory total. Levy became the 20th different winner of the co-sanctioned European Tour and OneAsia Tour event in its 20th staging, and catapulted himself to the top of the leaderboard after shooting an impressive course record 62 on Friday at Genzon Golf Club. Levy was joined in the winners’ circle this weekend by two further Titleist golf ball users who trusted the feel and control of Titleist golf balls to claim victories on the LPGA Tour and Japan Tour respectively.
Levy trusted a host of Titleist equipment for his success in China, including a Pro V1x golf ball, 913D3 driver, 913F fairway metal, AP2/MB 714 irons and Vokey Design SM5 gap and lob wedges. As well as being the choice of the champion at the event, Titleist was also the overwhelming golf ball of choice, with 104 of the 156-player field choosing to put their trust in the feel and consistency of a Pro V1 or Pro V1x, nearly five times the nearest competitor with 22. The victory was also the ninth for Titleist golf ball loyalists on this year’s European Tour, more than four times the nearest competitor with 2.
On the LPGA Tour, the winner trusted a Titleist golf ball to complete her third Tour victory at the inaugural Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic. The winner birdied the 72nd hole to shoot a final round 69 en route to a 12-under par, 276 total, one stroke clear of Pro V1x loyalist Stacy Lewis in second place and two clear of Pro V1 loyalist Jenny Shin in third place. As well as being the choice of the winner at the event, 20 of the players finishing amongst the top 21 and ties trusted a Titleist golf ball for their success.
On the Japan Tour, there was an all-Titleist Pro V1 playoff, where Hiroyuki Fujita topped Titleist Brand Ambassador Park Sang Hyun on the first playoff hole to win the Tsuruya Open. Both players finished tied on 13-under par, 271, before Fujita clinched his 16th career title and first Japan Tour win since the 2012 Nippon Series JT Cup. These victories take Titleist’s 2014 worldwide golf ball win count to 47, compared to 7 for the nearest competitor.
A maiden European Tour title for Titleist Brand Ambassador Alexander Levy in China, coupled with further wins around the world for players putting their trust in Titleist, continues to prove that the world’s best players put their trust in the superior performance, quality and consistency of Titleist to deliver success.
