BACK-TO-BACK EQUIPMENT SWEEPS ON PGA TOUR:
After sweeping every major equipment count at 13 different PGA TOUR events in 2019, Titleist went back-to-back at last week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, followed by another at this week’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
From golf balls, to drivers, fairways and hybrids, to utilities, iron sets, wedges and putters (tie), Titleist was the top choice of more players across every category.
Hee Young Park (Pro V1x) rallied in blustery conditions to win the women's portion of the ISPS Handa Vic Open in an all-Titleist three-way playoff.
Starting the final round three shots behind the overnight leader, Park topped Hye-Jin Choi (Pro V1) with a par on the fourth extra hole. So Yeon Ryu (Pro V1) was eliminated on the second playoff hole. All three players finished regulation at 8-under par 281.
The win marks Park’s third career LPGA victory and first since July 2013.
Titleist was the most relied upon golf ball in the field of 144 with 118 (82%) players, more than 14 times the nearest competitor with 8 (6%).
Four behind the overnight leader to start the final round, Mito Pereira (Pro V1) fired a closing 64 – including a 72nd-hole eagle - to win the Country Club de Bogota Championship by two shots over Titleist Brand Ambassador Ben Kohles (Pro V1x, TS4 driver, 718 T-MB iron (2), U-500 4-iron, 620 CB irons, Vokey Design SM7 wedges, Scotty Cameron P5 putter).
The win is the second of the 24-year old Chilean’s professional career, having captured a PGA TOUR Latinoamerica crown in 2016. He finished third in Panama last week.
Titleist was the most relied upon golf ball in the field of 156 with 105 (67%) players, more than fiive times the nearest competitor with 21.
It was a Titleist 1-2-3 finish at the Cape Town Open where Anton Karlsson (Pro V1x) claimed his maiden victory, topping Titleist Brand Ambassador Garrick Higgo (Pro V1) by one shot.
Tobie Tree (Pro V1) finished solo 3rd following a long break from playing due to injury, two shots behind Higgo. Jordan Wrisdale (Pro V1x) and Damien Perrier (Pro V1) were among three players who tied for 4th.
Titleist was the most relied upon golf ball in the field of 203 with 171 (84%) players, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 21.
