Kisner cruises to first PGA Tour victory

Titleist golf ball loyalist Kevin Kisner (Pro V1) captured his first career PGA Tour title in convincing fashion, winning the RSM Classic by six shots.

Kisner, who had four career runner-up finishes heading into the week, posted a pair of 6-under-par 64’s on the weekend en route to a 22-under-par 260 victory total, breaking the tournament record by four shots.

He became the sixth first-time winner to start the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season, joining Titleist Brand Ambassadors Justin Thomas (CIMB Classic) and Peter Malnati (Sanderson Farms Championship). With the victory, Kisner advanced to a career-high No. 17 in the Official World Golf Rankings.

"What a way to end the year, by far the greatest year of my life golf-wise,” Kisner said in his post-round press conference at Sea Island Resort. “To finish it that way, I couldn't write it up any better. I've just been playing so well all year, I knew one day it was going to happen."

THE COUNTS: Titleist was the most relied upon golf ball at the final official tournament of the year with 105 players trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That’s more than six times the nearest competitor with 16 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice in the hybrid (27) and iron (41) categories. Vokey Design Wedges topped the approach, sand and lob wedge (200) category and Scotty Cameron putters were the top choice in the putter (62) category.
