Perth, Australia: Around the globe, the winning ways continued for Titleist as Titleist Brand Ambassadors and golf ball loyalists combined for three titles across the worldwide professional Tours.
Titleist Brand Ambassador Brett Rumford led the trio of champions last week with his impressive win on the European Tour.
Trusting a Pro V1x golf ball and a full complement of Titleist club equipment, Rumford captured the crown at the inaugural World Super 6 Perth.
The Perth native led the field after 54 holes of stroke play competition and then prevailed through four consecutive six-hole rounds of match play to win his sixth career European Tour title.
The LPGA Tour was also in Australia last week, where Titleist golf ball loyalist Jang Ha-na trusted the New Pro V1 golf ball for the first time in competition and won the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open.
Jang posted an eagle and three birdies over her last six holes to seal a three-shot victory. She closed with a four-under-par 69 en route to a 10-under 282 total.
The win marked Jang’s fourth career LPGA Tour title.
Four players tied for third place at six-under, including three Titleist golf ball loyalists – defending champion Haru Nomura (Pro V1x), number two ranked Ariya Jutanugarn (Pro V1x) and Sarah Jane Smith (Pro V1x), as four of the six players who finished among the top three and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success.
Titleist was the overwhelming top choice in golf balls at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open with 111 players relying on a Pro V1 or Pro V1x, more than 10 times the nearest competitor with 11.
In South Africa, Titleist golf Ball loyalist Paul Lawrie (Pro V1x) closed with a spotless five-under-par 67 en route to a 15-under 274 victory total to claim the Dimension Data Pro-Am.
Lawrie, who was playing in the Pro-Am event with his son, Michael, finished one shot ahead of three players, including fellow Titleist golf ball loyalists Chris Swanepoel (Pro V1x) and Chris Lloyd (Pro V1x).
The win is the first since Lawrie captured the 2012 Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in his native Scotland.
With the victory, Lawrie also earned a spot in this year’s WGC-Bridgestone Championship.
“The win gives me a big boost,” he said. “Tee-to-green I hardly put a foot wrong all week, and I holed a few putts. I’m going to take a bit of a break now and spend a few weeks at home and come back out with that boost in my confidence.”
Titleist is part of the Acushnet company, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
