Vijay Singh

Fairhaven, MA (September 7, 2004) – While most people in the United States were taking Labor Day off, Vijay Singh was working hard as usual. And once again his work ethic, desire, and focus translated into victory, this time at the Deutsche Bank Championship. The win marked Vijay's PGA Tour-leading sixth of the year, including one major, all while trusting his Titleist Pro V1x golf ball. In fact, 4 of the top 5 finishers relied upon Titleist for their success, including Titleist ambassador and defending champion Adam Scott. Additional wins on the PGA European Tour by Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald and by Cristie Kerr with the Pro V1 on the LPGA Tour, advanced Titleist’s worldwide win count in 2004 to 117, compared to 29 for the nearest competitor. At the highest level of competitive golf, success is measured in victories. And like Singh, Donald and Kerr, more of the world's best players trust the consistency and ultimate performance of the #1 ball in golf. Titleist.
