Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Henrik Stenson earned his second consecutive DP World Tour Championship crown, carding a final round of 70 to finish with a 16-under-par 272 victory total. 

It was clutch play down the stretch that propelled Stenson to successfully defend his title as he closed with back-to-back birdies on 17 and 18. 

"I didn't give up. I was hanging in there and made a couple important par putts on 12 and 16. Then I hit it to a foot on 17 and hit a good, solid wedge from 125 (yards) on 18," said Stenson.

With the back-to-back titles under his belt, Stenson is already looking forward to making it a three-peat next year.

"It was such a great place for me to win here last year, so to come back and successfully defend is very pleasing. I'll be back and try to make it three wins in a row next year."

We look forward to it, Henrik! Great playing.

WEEKEND HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE WORLDWIDE PROFESSIONAL TOURS:

 Titleist golf ball Loyalist Nick Cullen (Pro V1x) posted a 9-under-par 279 victory total to capture his first Australian Masters, one shot clear of defending champion and fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott. The leaderboard was flush with Titleist Golf Ball Loyalists as nine of the top 10 finishers relied upon a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success.

 On the Asian Tour, Titleist golf ball loyalist Mardan Mamat (Pro V1x) captured the Resorts World Manila Masters for his fourth career Asian Tour title. Mamat led wire-to-wire, closing with a final round 3-under-par 69 to finish with a 20-under-par victory total of 268.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman captured his third career PGA Tour victory at the OHL Classic in Mayakoba, Mexico. Hoffman used the new Titleist Pro V1x Prototype to rank in the top-5 in eagles (4), birdies (3), sand saves (1), and greens-in-regulation (4) and shoot four sub-70 rounds to finish with a 17-under-par 267 victory total.

Charley was one of the first individuals to put the new prototype ball in play, a testament to how much he felt the golf ball could help him improve. 

"I immediately noticed the softer feel of the new Pro V1x, I also tested it on TrackMan and the spin and performance on full iron shots were right where I wanted them to be. Overall, I saw improvement across the board," said Hoffman.

Charley also used the new Titleist 915D2 to rank fifth in Driving Distance, helping him play the Par-5's in 6-under-par. 

The win ensures Charley's place in the field for Hyundai Tournament of Champions, a fact that is not lost on his young daughter.

"My daughter has been wanting to go Hawaii, so I guess we'll make a New Year's run."

Sounds like it was a great week for the entire Hoffman family. Let's take a look inside the bag of OHL Classic Champion Charley Hoffman.

Congratulations, Charley!

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:
