Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth earned his second consecutive runaway victory with a closing six-under-par 66 to win the Hero World Challenge by a decisive 10 strokes. The 21-year-old finished with a 26-under-par 262 victory total to shatter the tournament record by four shots.

Spieth, who plays a full bag of Titleist equipment, has been playing the new Titleist Pro V1x prototype golf ball and 915 driver since the WGC-HSBC Champions and the change has been paying dividends ever since. 

"This is the best that I've played in my life...And I got to say the same thing last week in a media tent in Australia," said Spieth.

Heading into the final round with a 7-shot lead, Spieth opened with three birdies in four holes to help open an 11 shot lead with nine holes to play. Spieth made sure to enjoy the home stretch.

"It was the most fun I ever had playing nine holes of golf," said Spieth.

The back-to-back wins moved Spieth into the Top 10 of the official world golf rankings, capping off a successful year in which Spieth achieved his goals.

"Inside we were really very pleased with the year and how it came to a close...I wanted to win multiple times this year and I did. This caps off the best golfing year that I've ever had."

Congratulations on your fantastic play, Jordan! See you in 2015.

"It was just one of those rounds where I was in the zone...I was just focusing on each shot and hitting the target," said Spieth.

Let's take a look at the winning setup used by Jordan this week.


 

 

Calling it the “best round of my life” following his final round 8-under-par 63, Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth won the Australian Open by six strokes in his first appearance Down Under. Playing the new Titleist Pro V1x prototype golf ball and new Titleist 915 D2 driver for just the third time in competition, Spieth posted a 13-under-par 271 victory total under difficult, windy conditions at the Australian Golf Club.

"It's the best round I have ever played, especially considering the conditions. The golf course was in great shape, and it's an experience I will never forget," said Spieth.

Jordan also became the third player to win with the New Titleist Pro V1x prototype golf ball following Bubba Watson’s victory at the WGC-HSBC Champions and Charley Hoffman at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. 

Congratulations on your fantastic play, Jordan.

For the second consecutive year, a Titleist Brand Ambassador has earned the Sir Henry Cotton European Tour Rookie of the Year award. Brooks Koepka, who finished in eighth position on The Race to Dubai in his first full season, followed the achievement of Titleist Brand Ambassador Peter Uihlein in 2013. Koepka won the Turkish Airlines Open just two weeks ago during the European Tour's Final Series, and recorded four other top ten finishes during the season. He also finished T4 at the U.S. Open and 15th at the PGA Championship.

“Winning the Rookie of the Year means so much,” said Koepka. “I've worked so hard this year, and to see the results is fun. To cap the year off with a win in Turkey has made this year special, and it's a goal I've been working for since I was able to come out on Tour."

In winning the Rookie of the Year Award, Koepka succeeds Uihlein, his close friend and housemate, both Americans who opted to cross the Atlantic over two years ago to first play on the European Challenge Tour and then on The European Tour. Following his breakthrough win on the Challenge Tour in 2012, Koepka claimed three titles in 2013 to earn automatic promotion to The European Tour, joining Uihlein who had secured his own European Tour status by winning the 2013 Madeira Islands Open.

"Looking back where I was two years ago, and then where I am today, is special," continued Koepka. "So to win Turkey and win Rookie of the Year is amazing. Coming over, having nowhere to play and getting a win on The Challenge Tour, and then getting the promotion, was unbelievable. And now to win on The European Tour is special, and to win Rookie of the Year, you look at all the names, guys who have won it, especially last year; Pete Uihlein, so at least we can keep it in the house.”

George O’Grady, Chief Executive of The European Tour said: “Brooks has enjoyed a magnificent first full season on The European Tour, winning one of our Final Series events at the Turkish Airlines Open, recording a top five finish in a Major Championship, and finishing inside the top ten on The Race to Dubai. That would be a very good season for any player, but to do it in your first full season on The European Tour is even more impressive. The story of first Peter Uihlein winning the Rookie of the Year Award and now his close friend Brooks, is quite a remarkable one, and it underlines the global appeal The European Tour has.”

Koepka, who plays the Pro V1x golf ball and a full complement of Titleist golf clubs, became the second player in a month to win on the European Tour with the new Titleist 915 driver. Koepka put the new 915D2 (8.5) driver in play at the Turkish Airlines Open and edged Ian Poulter by one shot.

Koepka's fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador, Chesson Hadley, captured the U.S. PGA TOUR's Rookie of the Year Award in October.
