Titleist Brand Ambassador Gary Woodland continued the momentum of the #1 Ball in Golf this weekend, topping a leaderboard littered with players putting their trust in Titleist at the Transitions Championship.
Woodland claimed his first PGA Tour victory on 15-under par after firing a final round 4-under par 67, finishing one shot ahead of fellow Titleist Brand Ambassadors Webb Simpson (New Pro V1x) who finished alone in second, and Scott Stallings (New Pro V1x) who was a further two shots back in third. Woodland’s victory sees Titleist top the PGA Tour leaderboard once again in 2011; the eleventh victory for the legendary Pro V1 franchise in the opening 13 events of the year, including two World Golf Championship events.
Woodland trusted the feel and control of Titleist equipment throughout his bag at Innisbrook, including the Pro V1 golf ball, 910D3 driver, 909F3 fairway metal, 503i utility iron, MB irons, Vokey Design wedges and Scotty Cameron prototype putter. The playability of Titleist equipment helped Woodland lead the field in birdies made throughout the week, alongside Stallings who trusted the precision of the AP2 irons to match the champion with 22 birdies in total. Woodland also led the field in putts per round, trusting his Scotty Cameron putter to average just 27 putts, and become the seventh player on the 2011 PGA Tour to win with a Scotty Cameron in his bag.
As well as being the choice of the champion, Titleist golf balls were also trusted by the majority of the field, with 93 players putting their trust in the legendary Pro V1 franchise, more than five times the nearest competitor with 17. Indeed, 9 of the top 11 finishers in Florida put their trust in the #1 Ball in Golf. Titleist also topped the counts for iron sets, sand, lob and approach wedges, and putters respectively.
Elsewhere, on the European Tour Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the weather delayed Sicilian Open. A total of 98 players put their trust in the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, more than 5 times the nearest competitor with 18. On the Canadian Tour Pro V1x loyalist Cody Slover eagled the 72nd hole to claim his maiden Canadian Tour title at the inaugural Pacific Colombia Tour Baranquilla Open presented by Helm. Slover’s victory, coupled with another win on the PGA Tour bolsters Titleist’s 2011 worldwide golf ball win count to 24, compared to 6 for the nearest competitor.
A maiden PGA Tour victory for Titleist Brand Ambassador Gary Woodland, continuing Titleist’s emphatic start to the 2011 PGA Tour season, continues to prove that the world’s best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
