Titleist golf ball loyalists were at the top of leaderboards around the world this weekend, led by Pro V1x loyalist Heath Slocum who claimed the McGladrey Classic on the PGA Tour.
Slocum trusted the feel and control of the legendary Pro V1x to fire a final round 68 and claim a one shot victory from Titleist Brand Ambassador, Bill Haas, who continued his rich vein of form after claiming victory at the Viking Classic on the PGA Tour last week. Joining Slocum in the winners circle this weekend was Mark O’Meara (Pro V1) who claimed victory on the Champions Tour, Katherine Hull (Pro V1x) who won on the LPGA Tour and Shinichi Yokota (Pro V1) who won on the Japan Tour.
Slocum’s victory in Georgia saw him finish ahead of a number of fellow Titleist golf ball loyalists, who were among eight Pro V1 or Pro V1x players in the top-11 and ties. Joining Slocum and Haas in the top-5 were David Toms (Pro V1) and Arjun Atwal (Pro V1x) who finished two strokes behind Slocum in a tie for third place, alongside one other. Titleist was also the golf ball of choice at the McGladrey Classic with 96 players putting their trust in the #1 ball in golf, compared to 12 for the nearest competitor. Titleist also topped the counts for iron sets, sand, lob and approach wedges and putters respectively.
Elsewhere, on the Champions Tour Mark O’Meara won the Senior Players Championship for his first career Senior Major title. O’Meara beat fellow Titleist golf ball loyalist Michael Allen (Pro V1x) at the first play-off hole to top an all-Titleist golf ball top-4 which also included Loren Roberts (Pro V1) and Jeff Sluman (Pro V1). On the LPGA Tour, Katherine Hull fired her third consecutive bogey-free, five-under par 67 to claim the Navistar LPGA Classic by one shot from fellow Pro V1x loyalist Brittany Lincicome. Titleist golf balls dominated the top of the leaderboard on the LPGA Tour, with each of the top-7 players trusting Titleist for their success, including Christie Kerr (Pro V1) and Na Yeon Choi (Pro V1x) who tied for third, and Lindsay Wright (Pro V1), Amy Yang (Pro V1) and Se Ri Pak (Pro V1) who all tied for fifth. On the Japan Tour, Shinichi Yokota trusted the Pro V1 to fire a final round 67 and claim the Canon Open by 2 shots for his second career JGTO title. These victories take Titleist’s 2010 worldwide golf ball win count to 115, compared to 21 for the nearest competitor.
A fourth career PGA Tour victory for Heath Slocum, coupled with further wins around the world for Titleist golf ball loyalists, continues to prove that the world’s best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
