Hard work, determination, grit and a really solid game from tee to green is what it takes to win on tour. And it’s not easy to put all of these elements together in any given week (even for the best golfers in the world) so when everything lines up, it’s important to have the right perspective.

Just ask Titleist Brand Ambassador Brooks Koepka.

“To look where I was a year and a half ago on The Challenge Tour and now to be a winner on The European Tour is incredible, especially winning four times there and winning out here, it's very special.”

Having spent the past year playing across the globe on both the European Tour and the PGA Tour, Brooks has already established a solid resume in his professional career and his this past weekend is all a part of the learning process.

“I feel like I've been playing really well… I've been knocking on the door and I've learned something every time, and used that today.”

Learning to win on tour is a skill in of itself and one this is anything but easy.

“I've always said, it doesn't matter where you win. Winning's winning. It's hard to do, especially in golf.  I don't think anybody would tell you it's easy,” added Koepka.

With the win, Brooks also moves into 6th place on the Race to Dubai rankings and jumps into 35th place in the Official World Golf Rankings.

That’s our idea of a pretty great weekend on the golf course. Congratulations, Brooks!

So let’s take a closer look at the Titleist equipment Brooks trusted to his first career European Tour title:

It was a busy weekend across the globe on the worldwide professional tours and with only a few events remaining in 2014, every player was on the hunt to add some hardware to their collections and move into the new year with some positive momentum.

And after posting an opening round 5-under-par 66, Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman kept the solid play going throughout the weekend at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Mexico. Trusting a new Pro V1x prototype golf ball and a new 915D2 driver along with a full compliment of Titleist golf clubs, Hoffman closed with a 5-under-par 66 en route to a 17-under 267 victory total and his third career victory. 

With the win, Charley moves to sixth place in the season long FedExCup race and punches his ticket to this years Masters. 

While earlier in the day and about 7,000 miles away, Titleist Brand Ambassador Brooks Koepka earned his first career European Tour title in impressive fashion by shooting a final round 7-under-par 65 for a four day victory total of 17-under-par 271. Brooks also put a new 915D2 driver in play for the first time in competition this week.

The win moved Brooks to 35th in the Official World Golf Rankings and helped cap off an impressive year-long stretch of play.

“I feel like I've been playing really well.  I've been knocking on the door, and these last maybe two, three months, I've been very close over here and in the States,” said Brooks. 

“I felt like I should have won a couple…. and I've learned something every time, and used that today.  I was very relaxed, very calm today. It showed I guess.”

It certainly did.

WEEKEND HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE WORLDWIDE PROFESSIONAL TOURS:

 On the Asian Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Rashid Khan of India captured the Chiangmai Golf Classic in Thailand for his second title on the Asian Tour this year. Khan closed with a 4-under par 68 to finish with a 17-under-par victory total of 271.

 Titleist Brand Ambassador Anthony Brown claimed victory at the NSW Open Championship with a birdie on the second playoff hole. Brown shot a four day total of 14-under-par 274. 

 To round out the week's success, Titleist Brand Ambassador Jorge Fernandez-Valdes carded a final-round, 2-under-par 70 en route to a two-shot victory at the Abierto de Chile to capture his second career PGA Tour PGA Tour Latinoamerica title.
