A World of Success. A World Apart.

A truly international player, Titleist brand ambassador and World No. 7 Adam Scott captured his third victory on three different tours this year, coasting to a 7-stroke victory at the Singapore Open.

Fairhaven, MA (September 12, 2005) -A truly international player, Titleist brand ambassador and World No. 7 Adam Scott captured his third victory on three different tours this year, coasting to a 7-stroke victory at the Singapore Open. The Asian Tour title follows victories at the U.S. PGA Tour's Nissan Open in February and the PGA European Tour's Johnnie Walker Classic in April.

Scott never relinquished the lead he attained after completing the rain-interrupted third round Sunday morning. Scott's final round performance was as scorching as the Singapore heat, starting 4-under after the first four holes en route to a final round 6-under 65. He finished at 13-under 271. Runner-up Lee Westwood (Pro V1x) closed with a 68 for a 278.

For all his success, Scott relies upon the Pro V1x golf ball and a full bag of Titleist golf clubs, including the Titleist Titanium 983K driver, Pro Trajectory 3-wood, Titleist Forged prototype irons, Vokey Design sand and lob wedges and a Scotty Cameron by Titleist putter.

PGA TOUR: Titleist brand ambassador Ben Crane led a contingent of seven Titleist golf ball players who finished among the top 10 at the Bell Canadian Open. Crane, who relies upon the Pro V1x golf ball, Pro Titanium 905T driver, 904F Pro Trajectory 3-wood, Forged 690 CB irons (5-P), Forged 704 CB 4-iron, 503.H utility iron, Vokey Design approach wedge and Vokey Design Spin Milled sand and lob wedges, tied for second with a Titleist Pro V1 player, one stroke behind the winner. Another Titleist Pro V1x player finished fourth, followed by Jerry Kelly (T5/Pro V1x), Joey Sindelar (T5/Pro V1), Vijay Singh (T7/Pro V1x) and Arjun Atwal (10th/Pro V1x).

Titleist topped the golf ball count with 115 players, nearly nine times the nearest competitor with 13. Titleist was also the field favorite in the iron (33), utility iron (10), wedge (124) and putter (59) categories.

PGA EUROPEAN TOUR: World No. 5 and Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Retief Goosen shot a final round 5-under 67 to win the Linde German Masters for his second victory in as many weeks and his third of the year. Like Adam Scott, Goosen has now won on three different tours this year, including the Asian Tour's China Masters last week and The International on the U.S PGA Tour in August.

Goosen finished at 20-under 268 to win by one stroke over four players including Jose Maria Olazabal and David Lynn who rely upon the Titleist Pro V1 for their success.

Titleist topped the golf ball count with 99 players, more than five times the nearest competitor. His victory was also the 21st for Titleist players on the 2005 PGA European Tour, more than all other golf balls combined.

NATIONWIDE TOUR: Garrett Willis captured the Envirocare Utah Classic for his first career Nationwide Tour victory. Willis, who won the 2001 Touchstone Energy Tucson Open with Titleist, edged three players including fellow Pro V1 player Kris Cox and Pro V1x player Matthew Goggin by one stroke for the win. Willis closed with a 2-under 70 to finish at 13-under 275. He topped a leaderboard that boasted nine Titleist players among the top 10 finishers. Titleist players have won 19 of the 24 events played on the 2005 Nationwide Tour, nearly five times the nearest competitor with 4. Overall, more than 10 times as many players relied upon Titleist golf balls (117) than the nearest competitor (11) at the event. Titleist was also the top choice of players in the iron (43), utility iron (14), wedge (125) and putter (54) categories.

JAPAN TOUR: Titleist full-line staff player Yasuharu Imano fired a 2-under 68 to complete a wire-to-wire victory at the Suntory Open. Imano, who led after each of the first three rounds with scores of 65-64-70, topped fellow Pro V1x player Mamoru Osanai by two shots to win his fifth career crown and his first championship in three years. Imano moves into second position on the Japan Order of Merit, between two other Titleist full staff players - S.K. Ho (1st) and last week's winner Daisuke Maruyama (3rd). It was the eighth victory for Titleist golf ball players on the 2005 Japan Tour.

In addition to the Pro V1x golf ball, Imano relies upon the Pro Titanium 905T driver, Forged 690 CB irons, Vokey Design approach and lob wedges and a Scotty Cameron by Titleist putter. Titleist was the most played golf ball (63) and wedge (75) at the event.
