Stephan Jaeger's Win at the Texas Children’s Houston Open Marks the 13th Victory for Titleist Golf Ball Players Through the First 14 Events of the PGA TOUR Season

PGA TOUR | Texas Children’s Houston Open 

In control and undaunted down the stretch, Stephan Jaeger (Pro V1) closed in 3-under 67 to emerge from a crowded leader board in Houston and win by one shot – claiming the 13th victory for Titleist golf ball players in the first 14 events played this season on the PGA TOUR.  

  • It also marked the first PGA TOUR victory for Jaeger, 34, who posted rounds of 69-66-66-67 to finish the week at 12 under, one better than the group of five players who finished T2.  
  • For the week, Jaeger gained nearly six (+5.656) strokes tee to green, including more than three (+3.170) around the green.
  • On Sunday, he got up and down on five of six attempts.  
  • Jaeger, who graduated from the Korn Ferry Tour in 2021 playing Pro V1 Left Dot, moved to Pro V1x midway through the 2022 season looking for more trajectory and spin.
  • Six events later, he put Pro V1 in play and has played the model ever since.
