It was a historic Monday finish at The Open Championship where Titleist Brand Ambassador Zach Johnson prevailed in a three-man playoff to claim his second career major title.

Entering the day three strokes off the pace, Johnson carded a final-round 6-under-par 66 for a 15-under-par 273 total to enter a playoff with Titleist Brand Ambassador Marc Leishman and Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Louis Oosthuizen.

Johnson tallied two birdies in the four-hole aggregate score playoff to win by one and earn the title, Champion Golfer of the Year.

Congratulations, Zach!

Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Piercy (Pro V1x) captured the Barbasol Championship on Sunday for his third career PGA TOUR title, closing with a 6-under-par 65 to post a 19-under-par 265 victory total.

 "I just knew it was a matter of time coming back and it's been a long road,” said Piercy after the win, referring to elbow surgery he underwent early last year.

“My whole goal after coming back from surgery was to come back better… I struck the ball beautifully all week and made enough putts to get it done.”

Three players tied for third place at the Grand National Course on the Robert Trent Jones Trail, including Pro V1x loyalist Whee Kim.

STATISTICALLY SPEAKING: Piercy hit 17 of 18 (94%) greens in regulation on Sunday and finished tied for first on the week by hitting 63 of 72 (87.5%) over the four rounds.

TITLEIST BY THE NUMBERS: Titleist golf balls have now been played to win 23 times on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR, more than four times the nearest competitor (5).

Titleist golf balls were the top choice at the Barbasol Championship with 90 players in the field of 130 trusting a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That's more than five times the nearest competitor with 17 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the field favorite in the iron (33), approach, sand and lob wedge (132) and putter (49) categories.
