When Titleist Golf Ball Loyalists Padraig Harrington and Daniel Berger walked to the first hole of a sudden death playoff at The Honda Classic, the eventual outcome was in question, however, the winning golf ball was not - it would be a New Pro V1x. Harrington secured the title with a par on the second extra hole for his second win with the New Pro V1x in less than three months.
Both playoff participants finished regulation at 6-under-par 274, one shot clear of three players, including Titleist Brand Ambassador Ian Poulter
"When I get in contention I can still hit the shots, it felt good today," said Harrington.
The win secures Padraig's spot in this years Masters and earns him a two year exemption on the PGA Tour.
Congratulations on a fantastic week, Padraig!
