K.J. Choi claims 'Fifth Major' with Titleist
May 16, 2011

TitleistTitleist Pro V1 loyalist K.J. Choi claimed the biggest win of his career this weekend, topping a leaderboard littered with Titleist golf ball loyalists to win The Player’s Championship at TPC Sawgrass. Choi’s par at the first extra hole saw him prevail in an all-Titleist golf ball play-off, winning golf’s unofficial ‘Fifth Major’ ahead of an all-Titleist top-5. Choi’s eighth career PGA Tour victory continues Titleist’s winning form around the world as the legendary Pro V1 franchise continues to be the choice of champions.

Choi’s final round 2-under par 70, saw him finish on 13-under par, two ahead of Paul Goydos (New Pro V1) who finished alone in 3rd, and three ahead of Titleist Brand Ambassador Nick Watney (Pro V1x) and Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald as the leading players all put their trust in the legendary Pro V1 franchise for their success. Completing Titleist’s strong showing at the top of the leaderboard was Titleist Brand Ambassador Jason Dufner (Pro V1) and Titleist golf ball loyalists J.B. Holmes (Pro V1x), Aaron Baddeley (Pro V1x) and Hunter Mahan (New Pro V1x) all of whom tied for sixth place with two others on 9-under par. The feel and control of the #1 Ball in Golf was also the choice of the majority of the field at TPC Sawgrass, with 90 players putting their trust in Titleist compared to 15 for the nearest competitor.

Elsewhere, on the Asian Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Barry Henson topped an all-Titleist top-4 to claim his maiden Asian Tour crown at the ICTSI Philippine Open. Henson was joined at the top of the leaderboard by Titleist Brand Ambassador Jbe Kruger (Pro V1x) and Titleist golf ball loyalists Jay Bayron (New Pro V1x) and Digvijay Singh (New Pro V1x) who each relied on the control of the Pro V1 franchise in difficult weather conditions to complete the all-Titleist top-4. On the European Tour, Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the Iberdrola Open with 97 players putting their trust in the feel and control of the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, compared to 19 for the nearest competitor. Victories on the PGA and Asian Tours this weekend increase Titleist’s 2011 worldwide golf ball win count to 49, compared to 10 for the nearest competitor.

An eighth PGA Tour victory for Pro V1 loyalist K.J. Choi at The Player’s Championship, and a further victory on the Asian Tour to further boost Titleist’s impressive win count around the worldwide professional tours, continues to prove that the world’s best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
