Leading the way this week, Titleist golf ball loyalist Pat Perez (Pro V1) birdied three of his first four holes to start his final round and held on to win the CIMB Classic for his third career PGA Tour crown. Perez closed with a 3-under-par 69 at TPC Kuala Lumpur en route to a 24-under-par 264 victory total, four shots clear of his nearest competitor. He was the only player to shoot four consecutive rounds in the 60’s (66-65-64-69).
Perez makes it two-of-two for Titleist golf ball loyalists to start the 2017-18 PGA Tour season, following last week’s Safeway Open champion Brendan Steele (Pro V1x) into the Titleist winners’ circle.
Titleist golf ball loyalsit Tyrrell Hatton (Pro V1x ) sealed his second European Tour victory in seven days with a birdie at the last to win by one shot at the Italian Open. Last week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship winner carded six birdies on Sunday - including five on the back nine – en route to a closing 5-under-par 65 and a 21-under 263 victory total.
The win marks the third career European Tour crown for Hatton and the 26th victory for Titleist golf ball players this season on the European Tour, more than five times the nearest competitor with 5.
