Florida, United States: Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott closed with an even-par 70 en route to a nine-under 271 victory total at the Honda Classic.
The one-shot win marked the 12th of Scott’s PGA Tour career and his 27th worldwide – all with a Titleist golf ball and equipment.
Scott switched from the Pro V1x to the Pro V1 to start the calendar year at the Sony Open in Hawaii.
At the start of the Honda Classic week he visited the Titleist Performance Institute in Oceanside, California and transitioned from the 915D3 driver to the 915D2.
In the three events (12 rounds) he has played on the PGA Tour in 2016, Scott has shot in the 60s a total of 10 times, with just the opening and closing rounds of 70 at the Honda Classic preventing a clean sweep.
Trusting his Titleist equipment from tee-through-green, Scott topped the field in Greens in Regulation (55-72/76.4%), tied for second in birdies (17) and was seventh in Driving Distance (305.9 yards).
Justin Thomas and Blayne Barber tied for third place, four shots behind their fellow full product line brand ambassador.
Thomas, who gamed a new Vokey Design SM6 pitching wedge for the first time, was the only player to shoot four consecutive rounds in the 60s. He was also among the top-10 in Driving Distance (eighth/305.1 yards) and Driving Accuracy (tied 10/69.5%).
Titleist was the top choice among the field of 144 in golf balls with 92 (64%), more than five times the nearest competitor (17).
Titleist was also the field favourite in iron sets with 41 (29%); wedges with 169 (47%), nearly four times the nearest competitor (43); and putters with 60 (42%), 14 more than the nearest competitor (46).
The new Vokey Design SM6 was the overwhelmingly most played wedge model with 114, which is already 68% of all Titleist wedges in play.
Scott’s win marked the ninth for Titleist golf ball loyalists on the 2015-16 PGA Tour, more than twice the nearest competitor with four.
Titleist players also have more victories across every other major equipment category, including drivers (five), irons (five), wedges and putters (nine).
In Australia, Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Louis Oosthuizen captured the ISPS Handa Perth International to claim his eighth career European Tour title and his 12th worldwide.
Oosthuizen entered the final day with a three-shot lead and posted a closing one-under 71 en route to a 16-under victory total.
He finished one shot clear of Titleist Brand Ambassador Alexander Levy (Pro V1x, 915D3 driver, 915Fd fairway metal, 915Hd hybrid, 712U utility iron, 716 MB irons, Vokey Design SM5 gap and lob wedges).
In fact, Oosthuizen topped a leaderboard that included Pro V1x players among each of the top five finishers, including four full product line Titleist Brand Ambassadors. Twelve of the 14 players who finished among the top-10 and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success.
Local favourite Jason Scrivener (Pro V1x, 915D3 driver, 913F fairway metal, 716 T-MB utility 2-iron, CB 3-iron, 716 MB irons and Vokey Design SM5 gap and lob wedges) finished solo third, two shots behind Oosthuizen, while Gregory Bourdy (Pro V1x, 915D3 driver, 915Fd fairway metals, 915Hd hybrid, 716 MB irons, Vokey Design SM6 gap and prototype lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Concept 1 putter) and Peter Uihlein (Pro V1x, 915D3 driver, 915F fairway metal, 716 T-MB utility 2-iron, 716 MB irons, Vokey Design SM6 pitching, gap, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron GSS Newport 2 putter) tied for fourth place at 13-under.
It marked the second consecutive top-10 finish for Uihlein who placed joint ninth in Malaysia the previous week.
Titleist was the top golf ball choice among the field of 156 in Perth with 121 (78%) players, 11 times the nearest competitor with 11.
Titleist was also the field favourite in irons and wedges.
Oosthuizen’s win marked the seventh for Titleist golf ball loyalists through the first 11 events of the 2015-16 European Tour season. The event was tri-sanctioned by the European, Australasian and Asian tours.
