Titleist Pro V1 Enjoys St. Andrews Success with Hatton
England's Tyrrell Hatton etched his name into the remarkable golf history of St. Andrews by secuing a four-shot triumph at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship with the aid of Titleist's Pro V1 ball. His record-equalling 10-under 62 on Satuday had edged him ahead of the pack, and he added a brilliant 66 on Sunday to claim his maiden title on the European Tour. The 24-year-old was joined in the winners’ circle by four others this weekend who claimed victories on the LPGA, PGA Tour Champions, Asian Tour and Korean Tour to mark another winning weekend for the brand..
Hatton posted seven birdies in his final round as he cruised to a four shot win on The Old Course, marking the 22nd victory for Titleist golf ball loyalists on the 2015-16 European Tour schedule. After firing 67-70 over Carnoustie and Kingsbarns, Hatton shot to the top of the leaderboard with his course-record equalling 62 on Saturday before posting a tournament equalling winning total of 23-under par. Titleist was also the top choice in golf balls in Scotland, with 108 players putting their trust in the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, compared to 22 for the nearest competitor. The champion also relied upon Vokey Design SM6 gap, sand and lob wedges for his success.
On the PGA Tour Champions, it was an all-Titleist golf ball play-off at the Toshiba Classic, where Titleist Brand Ambassador Jay Haas (Pro V1) secured his 18th PGA Tour Champions victory. Haas defeated Pro V1x loyalist Bart Bryant with a birdie on the first play-off hole, trusting Titleist equipment from tee-to-green, after the pair had tied on 16-under par. Titleist was also the top choice of the field with 56 players putting their trust in Titleist golf balls, seven times that of the nearest competitor with eight.
There was also a Titleist 1-2 on the LPGA Tour where Ha Na Jang (Pro V1) edged Shanshan Feng (Pro V1x) to win the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship, by one shot. Jang matched the lowest round of the year on Tour with a 62 on Saturday before closing with a 1-under par 71 to post a 17-under par 271 victory total. Of the 81 player field, 59 players put their trust in Titleist golf balls, nearly ten times the nearest competitor with six.
Elsewhere, on the Asian Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Poom Saksansin of Thailand won the BNI Indonesian Masters for his first Asian Tour victory. Saksansin closed with a 5-under par 67 en route to an 18-under par winning total ahead of fellow Titleist Pro V1x loyalists Phachara Khongwatmai and Suradit Yongcharoenchai, and Titleist Brand Ambassador Masahiro Kawamura (Pro V1). Titleist was also the leading choice amongst the field, with 101 players, compared to 19 for the nearest competitor. On the Korean Tour, HeunhChol Joo (Pro V1x) won the Hyundai Insurance KJ CHOI Invitational for his second career KPGA tour title. The win marked the 9th win for Titleist golf ball loyalists through the first ten events of the 2016 KPGA Tour season. Titleist was also the choice of the field with 93 players of the 114 player field.
An historic victory for Titleist golf ball loyalist Tyrrell Hatton at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship marks the 156th win for Titleist golf ball loyalists across Worldwide Professional Tours in 2016, compared to 28 for the nearest competitor, as the legendary Pro V1 and Pro V1x continue to be the choice of champions around the world.
