Jason Dufner plays Titleist to record-breaking PGA victory

August 12, 2013

Titleist Brand Ambassador Jason Dufner claims his maiden career Major Championship with a two shot victory at Oak Hill Country Club in the USPGA Championship

Jason Dufner captured the 2013 USPGA Championship with a course record 7-under par 63 on Friday, tying the low round record for a Major championship, and completed victory with a final round 2-under par of 68 to post a 10-under par, 270 winning total – the lowest ever recorded in the USPGA Championship at Oak Hill.

Dufner played Titleist from tee-to-green for his success, including the Pro V1 golf ball, 910D2 driver, 913F and 913Fd fairway metals, 913H hybrid, AP2 Prototype 714 irons, Vokey Design SM4 sand wedge, TVD K-Grind lob wedge and Scotty Cameron putter. Dufner put the new AP2 Prototype 714 irons into play for the first time at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last week, where he finished tied-4th. Click here for full details of his bag.

15 players who teed-up at Oak Hill put the new prototype irons into play this week, including Titleist Brand Ambassadors Tim Clark and Marc Leishman, who were playing them for the first time. Titleist irons were also the choice of the field, with 41 players.

As well as being the choice of the champion, Titleist golf balls were also the choice of the overwhelming majority of the field at the USPGA Championship, completing a clean sweep of the 2013 Majors. Titleist golf balls were the performance choice of more players than any other brand at the Masters, U.S. Open and Open Championship. In total, 87 players of the 156-player field played the Pro V1 franchise and this impressive count was further validated at the top of the leaderboard, where five of the six players who finished in the top five and ties played the #1 ball in golf, including Pro V1x loyalists Henrik Stenson and Jonas Blixt who finished third and fourth respectively, and Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott (Pro V1) who finished fifth alongside Scott Piercy (Pro V1x).

Elsewhere, on the Tour, Titleist golf ball loyalist Andrew Svoboda completed his maiden career victory at the Price Cutter Charity Championship. Svoboda posted a 22-under par winning total to complete a three-shot victory. These victories take Titleist’s 2013 worldwide golf ball win count to 90, compared to 31 for the nearest competitor.
