Titleist brand ambassador Spieth captures momentous Major double
June 22nd, 2015
Jordan Spieth trusts the performance excellence of Titleist from tee-to-green to claim back-to-back Major Championships at the 115th U.S. Open Championship
Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth secured back-to-back Major titles with a momentous one-shot victory at the 115th U.S. Open Championship, after he made history in April by winning his maiden Major at the Masters. While Chambers Bay golf course in Washington State garnered much of the attention throughout the week, Spieth’s monumental 5-under par, 275 winning performance became the ultimate storyline. He closed with a final round of 67 to top two players, including fellow Pro V1x loyalist Louis Oosthuizen.
Spieth trusted the superior performance of Titleist equipment from tee-to-green to become the first player since Gene Sarazen in 1922 to win multiple Majors before his 22nd birthday. His bag included the New Pro V1x golf ball, 915D2 driver, 915F fairway metal, 712U utility iron, AP2 714 irons, SM5 pitching, gap, sand and lob wedges, as well as a Scotty Cameron prototype putter. This equipment allowed Spieth to tie the highest number of birdies for the week with 18, and make more history by becoming the youngest winner of the U.S. Open since Bob Jones in 1923.
As well as being the choice of the champion at Chambers Bay, Titleist golf balls celebrated the continuation of golf’s longest running success story by marking the 67th consecutive year as the #1 ball at the U.S. Open. 91 players chose to tee it up with a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, more than four times the nearest competitor with 19. The New Pro V1x was the most played golf ball model at the championship as it was trusted by 49 players throughout the week. Titleist was also the field favourite for irons with 40 (compared to 28 for the nearest competitor) and wedges with 132 (compared to 55 for the nearest competitor).
Behind the leading three finishers, Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott (New Pro V1x) posted the lowest final round with a six-under par, 64, and vaulted into a share of fourth place alongside two other players, including fellow Brand Ambassador Cameron Smith (New Pro V1x). Smith eagled the 18th hole to post a final round 68, as four of the top six finishers relied upon a Titleist golf ball for their success.
11,181 players have now chosen to trust the feel and consistency of a Titleist golf ball across worldwide professional tours in 2015, more than six times the nearest competitor with 1,861. This has led to 75 wins for Titleist Brand Ambassadors and golf ball loyalists across the world in 2015, more than three times the nearest competitor with 20. Titleist golf balls have now also been played to win 20 of the 32 events on the 2014-15 PGA Tour schedule, five times the nearest competitor with 4.
A momentous Major Championship double for Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth at the 115th U.S. Open Championship, trusting a full bag of Titleist equipment, continues to prove that the word’s best players trust in the superior performance, quality and consistency of Titleist to deliver success.
