Stricker heads an 8 win weekend for Titleist players
June 6, 2011

TitleistFull line Titleist Ambassador Steve Stricker ensured Titleist was at the top of the leaderboard again this weekend as he fired four consecutive rounds in the 60’s to claim his tenth PGA Tour title at the Memorial Tournament. Moving up to fourth in the Official World Golf Rankings, Stricker becomes the highest ranked American with only fellow Titleist golf ball loyalists Luke Donald, Lee Westwood and one other ahead of him. Stricker was joined in the winners’ circle this weekend by a host of Titleist golf ball loyalists, all of whom trusted the feel and control of the legendary Pro V1 franchise to claim victory and continue the constant flow of victories for the #1 Ball in Golf.

Stricker trusted Titleist equipment for his victory in Ohio, including the Pro V1x, 909D3 driver, 906F2 fairway metal, 909H hybrid, AP2 irons and Vokey Design wedges. Stricker’s 16-under par total saw him finish one shot ahead of fellow Pro V1x loyalist Brandt Jobe, and a number of other Titleist golf ball loyalists, as ten of the twelve players who finished among the top-10 and ties trusted a Titleist golf ball. After taking the lead with a stunning hole-in-one at the 8th hole of his second round, Stricker produced a calm and controlled display to win a seventh title since turning 40. Titleist was also the overwhelming ball of choice at the Memorial Tournament, with 85 players, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 10. Titleist also topped the counts for iron sets, sand, lob and approach wedges and putters.

On the Champions Tour, Pro V1 loyalist Bob Gilder fired a final round 6-under par 65 to claim his tenth career Champions Tour victory at the Principal Charity Classic. On the LPGA Tour, it was an all-Titleist golf ball top-4 as Brittany Lincicome (Pro V1x) edged fellow Titleist golf ball loyalists Ji-Yai Shin, Christie Kerr and Catriona Matthew to claim the Shoprite LPGA Classic. On the Nationwide Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Steve Wheatcroft re-wrote the Nationwide Tour record books after rounds of 66, 60, 65 & 64 gave him a 12-stroke victory on 29-under par at the Melwood Prince George’s County Open. Wheatcroft recorded the largest margin of victory and lowest aggregate score in Nationwide Tour history.

Elsewhere, on the South Africa Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Justin Harding (Pro V1x) won his second career title at the Lombard Insurance Classic with a 14-under par total. On the Japan Tour, it was a Pro V1x 1-2-3 at the Japan Golf Tour Championship as J.B. Park edged fellow Titleist golf ball loyalists Daisuke Maruyama and Brad Kennedy to claim his first win on the Japan Golf Tour. On the Korean Tour, SoonSang Hong (Pro V1x) won the Subaru Classic by two shots ahead of a top-10 littered with Titleist golf ball loyalists. These victories boost Titleist’s 2011 worldwide win count to 66, six times that of the nearest competitor with 11, and more than all other brands combined.

A tenth PGA Tour victory for Titleist Brand Ambassador Steve Stricker, added to seven other victories around the world for Titleist golf ball loyalists and brand ambassadors, continues to prove that the world’s best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
