Titleist is the Overwhelming Choice of Equipment at U.S. Junior Championship

U.S. JUNIOR AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP: As the country’s top junior boy golfers gathered this week at Boone Valley Golf Club in Augusta, Mo. for their national championship, an overwhelming 145 of the 156 players, 93 percent of the field, relied upon Titleist golf balls.  That is 36 times the nearest competitor with 4.  In addition to its golf ball success, Titleist was also the top choice across every major equipment category, with more players than any other brand in the driver (83 vs. 20), fairway metal (139 vs. 35), utility metal (45 vs. 15), iron (70 vs. 27), wedge (221 vs. 52) and putter (89 vs. 19) categories.

It was an all-Titleist golf ball final, with the left-handed 15-year-old champion posting an 8 and 7 victory over his 14-year old opponent in the scheduled 36-hole championship match.  In addition to relying upon the New Pro V1x golf ball, the winner also trusted a full bag of Titleist golf clubs, including the new 907D2 driver (9.5), 906F2 fairway metal (15.0), 585.H utility metal (19.0), 695CB irons (3-9), Vokey Design pitching (48), sand (54) and Spin Milled lob (58) wedges and a Scotty Cameron Mil-Spec putter.

The runner-up played the New Pro V1 golf ball, as well as the 907D2 driver, 585.H utility metal, and Vokey Design approach, sand and lob wedges for his success.

U.S. GIRLS’ JUNIOR AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP: At the U.S. Girls’ Junior Amateur Championship contested at the Tacoma Country and Golf Club, Titleist accounted for over 90 percent of the field in the golf ball category with 141 players, compared to 8 for the nearest competitor.  Titleist also was the driver choice of more players than any other competitor with 35.

In the all-Titleist golf ball final, the 14-year old Girls’ champion relied upon the New Pro V1 in the 4 and 3 victory over her 17-year old opponent.   In addition to playing the New Pro V1x, the runner-up also relied upon Vokey Design sand and lob wedges, as well as the Scotty Cameron Futura Phantom putter.
