Larrazábal takes BMW with Titliest
June 27, 2011

TitleistTitleist Brand Ambassador Pablo Larrazábal emerges victorious at the BMW International Open while fellow Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng claims another Major on the LPGA Tour.

A host of Titleist golf ball loyalists topped leaderboards around the world this weekend, led by full line Titleist player Pablo Larrazábal who won the European Tour’s BMW International Open. The Spaniard fired four rounds in the 60’s at Golfclub München Eichenried, before making birdie on the fifth extra hole to secure the second European Tour title of his career. As well as rising to 10th place in the 2011 Race to Dubai rankings, Larrazábal also secured his place in The Open Championship at Royal St. George’s next month.

Larrazábal trusted the feel and control of Titleist equipment throughout his bag in Germany, including the Pro V1x ball, 910D2 driver, 910F fairways, MB irons, Vokey pitching, sand and lob wedges and Scotty Cameron Studio Select Squareback putter. After posting a 16-under par total of 266, Larrazábal trusted the power and accuracy of the innovative 910 metal series to birdie the par-5 18th hole three times in the play-off, securing victory at the fifth extra hole. Larrazábal finished ahead of a host of fellow Titleist golf ball loyalists, with Titleist Brand Ambassador George Coetzee, and Pro V1 loyalists Joost Luiten and Mark Foster tying for third place on 14-under par.

As well as being the choice of the champion, Titleist was also the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 117 players putting their trust in the legendary Pro V1 franchise, compared to just 18 for the nearest competitor. The playability and precision of Titleist equipment also saw it top the counts for irons sets and sand, lob and approach wedges respectively.

On the LPGA Tour, World #1 Yani Tseng (Pro V1x) became the youngest golfer ever, male or female, to win four Majors after claiming the Wegman’s LPGA Championship with an emphatic ten stroke victory. Tseng fired a final round 6-under par 66 to secure her eighth career LPGA Tour title, and leads the Tour statistics in rounds under par, birdies made and greens in regulation.

Elsewhere, on the Nationwide Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Erik Compton (Pro V1x) fired a 7-under par final round to win his maiden Nationwide Tour title at the Mexico Open ahead of fellow Pro V1x loyalist Richard H. Lee. On the Japan Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Jung-Gon Hwang claimed his maiden JGTO title ahead of Titleist Brand Ambassador Kyung-Tae Kim (Pro V1x), securing his place in the Open at Royal St. George’s. On the Korean Tour, Kang KyungNam (Pro V1) topped a Titleist 1-2 to win the DongBu Insurance Open ahead of Titleist Brand Ambassador Lee DongMin (Pro V1). On The Canadian Tour, Danny Sahl (Pro V1) claimed his maiden tour title at the Syncrude Boreal Open, with a 16-under par total. These victories boost Titleist’s 2011 worldwide win count to 83, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 11, and more than double all other brands combined.

A second European Tour title for Titleist Brand Ambassador Pablo Larrazábal and a second Major in two weeks for Pro V1 loyalists continues to prove that the world’s best players opt for the matchless performance of Titleist for their success.
