When the Masters entered extra holes for the second consecutive year, there was no question which ball would be the choice of the champion; both Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera trusted the feel and control of the legendary Pro V1 franchise to post a 9-under par total. In a stunning finale at Augusta National, Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott followed his birdie on the 72nd hole with a birdie at the second extra hole to make Masters history, and become the first Australian to win the coveted green jacket. The win is Scott’s first Major crown and twentieth international win as a professional, and also marks the third Major title for a Titleist Brand Ambassador in the last four majors (2012 U.S. Open and USPGA Championship, and 2013 Masters).
Trusting Titleist equipment from tee-to-green, Scott’s winning bag was made up of the New 2013 Pro V1 golf ball, 913D3 driver, 910Fd fairway metal, 712U utility iron, MB irons, Vokey Design SM4 pitching and sand wedge and TVD lob wedge, and Scotty Cameron by Titleist Futura X prototype putter. Having worked with Titleist representatives in the weeks preceding the tournament, Scott put the new Titleist 913D3 driver and Scotty Cameron prototype putter in play for the first time at Augusta National, and instantly reaped the rewards with a stunning display, culminating in a final round 3-under par 69 and a place in the history books.
Playing in the second to last group with fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Marc Leishman (New 2013 Pro V1x golf ball), Scott was joined at the top of the leaderboard by a host of Titleist golf ball loyalists. Angel Cabrera, the 2009 Masters champion, trusted the feel and control of the New 2013 Pro V1x to match Scott’s birdie on the 72nd hole and force extra holes, whilst Leishman played Titleist equipment from tee-to-green. There were further notable finishes for Titleist golf ball loyalists Lee Westwood and John Huh, and Titleist Brand Ambassador Tim Clark all of whom finished in the top twelve to guarantee their invite to the 2014 Masters. Titleist was also the most relied upon golf ball in the 93 player field, with 52 players putting their trust in the #1 ball in golf, compared to 12 for the nearest competitor. Titleist was also the top choice in the iron and wedge categories respectively.
Elsewhere, on the Web.com Tour, Alex Aragon (New 2013 Pro V1x) fired a final round 6-under par 66 to claim his second Web.com Tour title from five shots back at the WNB Golf Classic. Aragon’s 16-under par victory total saw him edge Titleist Brand Ambassador Byron Smith (New 2013 Pro V1x) and Brice Garnett (Pro V1x) in an all-Titleist golf ball top-3. On the Asian Tour, Titleist golf ball loyalist We-tang Lin (Pro V1x) claimed his sixth Asian Tour title at the Solaire Open in the Philippines. Lin posted a 3-under par victory total to edge fellow Titleist golf ball loyalist Thammanon Sriroj (New 2013 Pro V1x) by one shot. These victories take Titleist’s 2013 worldwide golf ball win count to 40 across worldwide professional tours, compared to 7 for the nearest competitor.
A maiden Major title for Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott at the Masters, ahead of a leaderboard dominated by Titleist golf ball loyalists, continues to prove that the world’s best players trust in the performance excellence of Titleist to deliver success.
