Trusting Pro V1x golf balls on every shot, three more players from across the globe each turned in championship performances and entered the winner’s circle on Sunday.

In South Africa, veteran Tjaart Van Der Walt teed up a Pro V1x golf ball at the Lion of Africa Cape Town Open and ran away from the field, winning his first Sunshine Tour victory by six shots. On the Korean Tour, overnight leader In-Hoi Hur cruised to a four-shot win at the Herald KYJ Tour Championship. And in South America, Pro V1x loyalist Jose de Jesus Rodriguez prevailed in extra holes to capture the Arturo Calle Colombia Open.

Adding three more victories to the trophy count, Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball loyalists have now won 145 tournaments on the worldwide professional tours in 2013, more than four times the nearest competitor with 36 and more than all other competitors combined.

This is Team Titleist, let’s wrap-up the week…

SOUTH AFRICAN TOUR: Lion of Africa Cape Town Open

Of the 156-player field, 117 relied upon a Titleist golf ball, more than four times the nearest competitor with 26.

Van Der Walt (Pro V1x) posted a 14-under 274 in securing his maiden Sunshine Tour title.

Hennie Otto (Pro V1x) claimed solo 3rd place at 7-under 281, while Titleist Brand Ambassador Trevor Fisher Jr. (Pro V1x, 913D3 driver, 714CB irons, Vokey Design wedges) and Pro V1x loyalist Doug McGuigan both signed for 5-under par, 283 totals to tie for 5th.

Four of the six players who finished among the top-5 and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success.

KOREAN TOUR: Herald KYJ Tour Championship

Of the 102-player field, 73 relied upon Titleist golf balls, more than six times the nearest competitor with 12.

In-Hoi Hur (ProV1x) closed with a 1-under par 71 en route to a 12-under 276 victory total, four shots ahead of three players, including Titleist Ambassador Joon-Woo Choi (ProV1x, 913D2 driver, 913FD fairway metal, 913H hybrids, 714CB irons, Vokey Design SM4 wedges) and Titleist golf ball loyalists Hyung-Tae Kim (ProV1x) and Gi-Whan Kim (ProV1).

LATINOAMERICA TOUR: Arturo Calle Colombia Classic

Jose de Jesus Rodriguez (Pro V1x), who birdied 7 of 9 holes in one mid-round stretch, erased a nine-shot deficit he faced at the start of his final round to grab a share of the lead at 14-under 270.

In the playoff, both competitors parred the first hole of sudden death. At the next, the difficult 233-yard par-3 No. 9th at San Andrés Golf Club, the 32-year-old Rodriguez hit the elusive green. With his opponent unable to get up and down from the rough, "Camarón”, as he is known on Tour, calmly two-putted to secure his second LatinoAmerica Tour victory of the season.

The victory vaults Rodriguez to No. 1 on the LatinoAmerica Tour Order of Merit with four events remaining on the 2013 schedule. 'Los Cinco’, the top five players on the Order of Merit at the conclusion of the season, will earn status to play on the 2014 Tour.


Team Titleist is in Shanghai this week for the WGC - HSBC Champions at Sheshan International Golf Club. And while a host of PGA Tour members are here competing for FedEx points, many European Tour players are looking to go low and move up in the Race to Dubai rankings.

And with so much at stake, 46 players in the field of 78 will rely on a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x, more than four times the nearest competitor with 11, and more than all other competitors combined.

Titleist is also the top choice this week in iron sets (22), and the sand, lob and approach wedge (64) category.

In the field this week from the European Tour are Titleist Brand Ambassadors Matteo Manassero (BMW Championship winner), Jin Jeong (ISPS HANDA Perth International winner), Gregory Bourdy (ISPS HANDA Wales Open winner), and Peter Uihlein (Madeira Islands Open winner). Along with this contingent of European Tour members, there is a group of Titleist Brand Ambassadors from the PGA Tour, including and not limited to Jordan Spieth, Graham DeLaet, and PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner.

The world-class field will tackle a course that measures 7,140 yards in length as it winds its way along Sheshan's existing canal, around man-made lakes or over the spectacular 50-meter deep quarry, a unique feature of Sheshan. The course also features many new and old trees including thousand year old Gingka trees. Take a look at the photo gallery above to see some of the sights and members of Team Titleist as they prepared for action this week in Shanghai.

Stay tuned for further information, and play well this weekend!
