Titleist Brand Ambassador Victor Dubuisson topped a world class field to claim the Turkish Airlines Open, marking the first European Tour victory of his career. The Frenchman fired nerveless rounds of 67, 65 and 63 to take a five-shot lead into Sundays final round, before closing with two birdies to post a 24-under par total and complete a two-stroke victory. Fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott joined Dubuisson in the winners’ circle this weekend by capturing the Australian PGA at Royal Pines Resort in Queensland. In his first appearance on home soil since winning The Masters in April, the Australian fired a final round 67 to post a 14-under par winning total and claim a four stroke victory. These victories along with the winner on the PGA Tour also putting his trust in the Pro V1x, take Titleist’s 2013 golf ball win count to 148, compared to 38 for the nearest competitor.
Dubuisson trusted Titleist equipment from tee-to-green for his maiden success, including the Pro V1x golf ball, 913D2 driver, 913Fd fairway metal, 712U 2-iron, 714 AP2 irons, Vokey Design SM4 pitching and sand wedges, Vokey Design prototype lob wedge, and Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter. In the first European Tour event to be held in Turkey, the Frenchman saw off a late charge from Pro V1 loyalist Jamie Donaldson who posted a Sunday-best round of 63 which included a hole-in-one at the 16th hole, to finish in second place. Pro V1x loyalist Henrik Stenson maintains his position atop the Race to Dubai standings with just one event remaining after finishing tied-seventh, as he bids to become the first player to win both the FedExCup Championship and Race to Dubai in the same season. As well as being the choice of the champion, Titleist was also the golf ball of choice for the majority of the field in Turkey, with 58% of the 78-player field, compared to 15% for the nearest competitor.
On the Australian Tour, Adam Scott also trusted a full bag of Titleist equipment to claim victory, including the Pro V1 golf ball, 913D3 driver, 910Fd fairway metal, 712U 2-iron, MB irons, Vokey Design SM4 pitching and sand wedges, Vokey Design TVD K-grind lob wedge, and Scotty Cameron Futura X long putter. Following a storm-delayed final round, Scott was 4-under par for his final seven holes to claim a four stroke victory ahead of fellow Titleist golf ball loyalist Rickie Fowler (Pro V1x). The feel and control of the Pro V1 franchise made Titleist golf balls the overwhelming choice of the top finishers in Queensland with 21 of the top 22 finishers trusting Titleist, as they were also the choice of the field with 109 of the 156-player field playing a Pro V1 or Pro V1x.
On the PGA Tour, the winner trusted the feel and consistency of the Pro V1x golf ball to claim a one-shot victory at The McGladrey Classic, ahead of Pro V1x golf ball loyalists Briny Baird and Tim Clark. The winner closed with a final round 66 to post a 14-under, 266 victory total. Nine of the 15 players who finished amongst the top 10 and ties trusted Titleist golf balls for their success, and the victory marks the fourth win for Titleist golf ball loyalists through the first five events on the 2013-14 PGA Tour.
Headline victories for Titleist Brand Ambassadors Victor Dubuisson and Adam Scott on the European and Australian Tours, accompanied by a further victory on the PGA Tour, continues to prove that the world’s best players trust the superior performance and consistency of Titleist to deliver their success.
