Claiming his fifth PGA Tour title at Innisbrook this weekend, Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald once again rose to the summit of the Official World Golf Rankings and completed a stunning four win weekend for Titleist golf ball loyalists around the world. Donald replaces Titleist Brand Ambassador and fellow Pro V1x loyalist Rory McIlroy as the #1 player in the world after firing a final round 5-under par 66, and coming through a four man play-off at the Transitions Championship. Donald was joined in the winners’ circle this weekend by Titleist golf ball loyalists Julien Quesne (Pro V1x), Yani Tseng (Pro V1x) and David Lipsky (Pro V1x) who topped leaderboards on the European Tour, LPGA Tour and Asian Tour to re-enforce Titleist as the overwhelming choice of champions around the world.
After posting a 13-under par total, Donald came through a four man play-off in sensational style, trusting the feel and control of his Pro V1x to make birdie at the first extra hole. Donald beat fellow Titleist golf ball loyalist Robert Garrigus (Pro V1x) and two others, regaining the #1 status in the world rankings, which he first claimed in May 2011. Finishing one shot outside the play-off was Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Piercy (Pro V1x), who trusted Titleist throughout his bag to fire a final round 9-under par 62 and tie for fifth. The precision and playability of the legendary Pro V1 franchise also saw Titleist top the golf ball count with 91 players teeing up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x, compared to 22 players for the nearest competitor. Titleist equipment also topped the counts for wedges and putters respectively.
On the European Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Julien Quesne fired a final round 8-under par 64 to claim his maiden European Tour title at the Open de Andalucía. Birdieing four of his final five holes, Quesne edged Titleist Brand Ambassador Matteo Manassero (Pro V1x) who finished alone in second and Pro V1x loyalist Eduardo De La Riva, as each of the top three finishers trusted Titleist for their success. Titleist golf balls were also the overwhelming choice of the field in Spain with 90 players, compared to 23 for the nearest competitor.
Elsewhere, on the LPGA Tour, World #1 Yani Tseng (Pro V1x) captured her second victory in four events at the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup. Tseng fired a final round 68 to finish one shot ahead of fellow Pro V1x loyalist Ne Yeon Choi, and claim her 14th career LPGA Tour title. On the Asian Tour, David Lipsky captured the Handa Faldo Cambodian Classic in an all-Titleist Pro V1x play-off, beating Elmer Salvador to win his first career Asian Tour title. These victories take Titleist’s 2012 worldwide golf ball win count to 30, compared to 5 for the nearest competitor.
A fifth PGA Tour victory and a return to the top of the Official World Golf Rankings for Titleist golf ball loyalist Luke Donald, coupled with a further victories across worldwide professional tours, continues to prove that the world’s best players opt for the performance excellence of Titleist for their success.
Titleist: #1 ball in golf.
