Brand AmbassadorsAdam Scott Edges Ernie Els in all-Titleist Playoff at Singapore Open
Two of the world's top-ranked players squared off in what proved to be an all-Titleist three-hole playoff at the Barclays Singapore Open. Adam Scott successfully defended his title when he birdied the third extra hole, prevailing over fellow Titleist brand ambassador Ernie Els. The win marked Scott's first victory of the year and his 11th as a professional. Both players relied upon a Pro V1 golf ball and 14 Titleist clubs for their success, including the Pro Titanium 905R, the most played 460cc driver on the PGA Tour.
What's In the Bag?:
Adam Scott: Pro V1 golf ball, Pro Titanium 905R driver (8.5), PT 906 fairway metal (18.5), Forged 695MB irons (3-P), Prototype 2-iron, Vokey Design Spin Milled sand (56) and lob (60) wedges, Scotty Cameron putter.
Ernie Els: Pro V1x golf ball, Pro Titanium 905R driver (9.5), PT 906 fairway metals (15.0, 18.0), Forged 695MB irons (3-P), Vokey Design Spin Milled sand (54) and lob (59) wedges, Scotty Cameron putter.
Scott and Els topped a leaderboard that included 10 Titleist players among the 11 who finished in the top 10 and ties. Titleist was the most played golf ball at the event with 116 players (77%), over 100 more than the nearest competitor with 15.
U.S PGA TOUR: The winner of the Canadian Open relied upon a PT 906 fairway metal (15.0) and a Vokey Design gap wedge to win his second title of the year, setting the course record with a first round 63.
Titleist golf ball players occupied the next six positions on the leaderboard, including runner-up Bart Bryant (Pro V1x), who missed a playoff by one shot. Sean O'Hair (Pro V1x) finished solo third and Titleist ambassador Brett Quigley (Pro V1, Pro Titanium 905R driver, Pro Trajectory 904F 3-wood, Forged 704.CB irons, Vokey Design prototype sand wedge and Spin Milled lob wedge, Scotty Cameron putter) was alone in fourth. Camilo Villegas (Pro V1), Jonathan Byrd (Pro V1x) and Steve Lowery (Pro V1) were among five players tied for fifth.
Overall, Titleist was the most played golf ball at the Bell Canadian Open by a 123 to 10 margin, more than 12 times the nearest competitor. Titleist was also the choice of more players than any other brand in the iron (40/26%), wedge (152/46%) and putter (60/39%) categories.
