With the richest prize in world golf on offer at East Lake Golf Club for the Tour Championship, the Titleist golf ball success story continued in historic fashion, as the majority of the field and the champion put their trust in the #1 ball in golf. Pro V1x loyalist Henrik Stenson fired a final round 2-under par 68 to complete a three stroke victory and not only earn his second title of the FedExCup Playoffs and the season long FedEx Cup, but also mark the 2013th win for the Titleist Pro V1 franchise. Since being introduced in October 2000 the Pro V1 has set unrivalled standards in golf ball performance, and the Pro V1 and Pro V1x were once again trusted by winners around the world this weekend. Wins for Titleist golf ball loyalists on the European Tour, Champions Tour, Australasia Tour and Sunshine Tour in South Africa marked a multiple win weekend for the #1 Ball in Golf, and the historic milestone of the 2013th win for the Titleist Pro V1.

Stenson posted a 13-under par, 267 winning total to complete a three shot victory over an all-Titleist golf ball top four that included Titleist Brand Ambassador’s Steve Stricker and Jordan Spieth in second and Webb Simpson in third. The win also marked a clean sweep for Titleist golf ball loyalists in the four events that make up the FedEx Cup as Stenson, who also won the Deutsche Bank Championship, was joined by Titleist Brand Ambassador’s Zach Johnson (Pro V1x) who captured the BMW Championship and Adam Scott (Pro V1), who started the Playoffs by winning The Barclays. As well as being the choice of the champion and each of the top four finishers at East Lake GC, Titleist golf balls were also the choice of the majority of the field, with 16 players in the 30-man field putting their trust in Titleist golf balls.

On the European Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Julien Quesne won his second career European Tour title at the 70º Open d’Italia. Quesne closed with a 5-under par 67 to finish on 12-under par and edge out fellow Titleist golf ball loyalists David Higgins (Pro V1x) and Steve Webster (Pro V1x). The majority of the field also put their trust in the feel and control of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x as 100 players in the 145 player field put teed up a Titleist, compared to 20 for the nearest competitor.

Elsewhere, on the Champions Tour, Mark Wiebe emerged victorious from an all-Titleist Pro V1 play-off against Corey Pavin at the Pacific Links Hawaii Championship. Pavin and Wiebe finished on 11-under par, one stroke ahead of fellow Titleist golf ball loyalist Bernhard Langer (Pro V1). On the Australasia Tour at the South Pacific Open Championship, Andre Stolz (Pro V1x) won the fifth hole of a sudden death play-off in his first event playing the Pro V1x in competition. On the South Africa Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Neil Scheitekat (Pro V1x) clinched his maiden Sunshine Tour title at the Platinum Classic. These victories take Titleist’s 2013 worldwide golf ball win count to 119, compared to 33 for the nearest competitor.

An historic win for Henrik Stenson and Titleist as the success of the Pro V1 franchise reaches another milestone and continues the longest running success story in golf, as the overwhelming majority of the world’s best player’s trust in the superior performance, quality and consistency of Titleist to deliver success.
