It was a dramatic 1-2 finish for Titleist Staff Professionals at the 48th PGA Professional National Championship (PNC) at Philadelphia Cricket Club. Matt Dobyns (Pro V1x), the PGA Head Professional at Fresh Meadow Country Club in Lake Success, N.Y., birdied the 18th hole to finish one shot clear of PGA Assistant Professional Ben Polland (Pro V1x) of Deepdale Golf Club in Manhasset, N.Y.

Dobyns and Polland lead a group of 20 PGA Professionals who earned a spot in the 97th PGA Championship next month at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.

This marks the second PGA Professional National Championship victory for Dobyns, who also claimed top honors in his championship debut in 2012. With the win, Dobyns becomes just the fifth player in the 48-year history of the PGA Professional National Championship to win multiple times.

Titleist Staff Professional Ryan Kennedy (Pro V1x), the Director of Instruction at Oakmont Country Club in Glendale, Calif., also made his mark in the championship by posting a final round 4-under-par 66 to establish a new competitive course record for the Wissahickon Golf Course. Kennedy hit 16 greens in regulation and his performance vaulted him 33 slots into a tie for 10th place, earning him an exemption into next month’s PGA Championship.

Trailing by three shots entering the final round of the Alstom Open de France, Titleist Brand Ambassador Bernd Wiesberger (Pro V1x) closed with a 6-under-par 65 en route to a three-shot victory over Titleist golf ball loyalist James Morrison (Pro V1x) at the Alstom Open de France. Wiesberger's 13-under-par 271 victory total was punctuated by a stellar weekend of play that moved him into prime position to capture his third career European Tour title.

"To stand here with the trophy right now, it's pretty sweet," said Wiesberger. "I felt really comfortable out there. I had a great weekend, only one bogey, and 66, 65 - that's not a bad score.”

We agree. Congratulations, Bernd!
