The PGA Tour heads to Playa del Carmen, Mexico for the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. The 7,039 yard El Camaleon Golf Club at Mayakoba rests along the Caribbean Sea, offering scenic views to players and fans alike. 

This week is especially meaningful for Titleist Pro V1x Loyalist Carlos Ortiz. The native of Mexico won last years El Bosque Mexico Championship on the Web.com Tour and he is hoping to have similar success in his home country this year. 

"Every time I play a tournament it creates interest in my home country and playing in my home country is a dream come true. It's a pretty important week for me," said Ortiz. 

This week is also important for players looking to maintain momentum gained from early in the year. Titleist Brand Ambassador Robert Streb has had three top-10 finishes in his last three events, giving him the confidence that he can compete every week.

"(Playing well) raises your confidence, it let's you know you can win at any time," said Streb.

With fantastic views and a quality field, it will surely be an exciting week in Mexico. Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist!

BY THE NUMBERS: 2014 OHL Classic at Mayakoba

 Titleist is the overwhelming golf ball of choice this week with 83 players in the field trusting a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success - more than four times the nearest competitor with 19 and more than all competitors combined. 

Titleist was also the top choice among players in the sand, lob and approach wedge (132) and putter (50) categories. 

Launch day is here and we’re excited to see the Titleist 915 family of metals land in golf shops today. So visit your local golf shop or fitter to experience distance without compromise first-hand.

#TeamTitleist

Titleist Brand Ambassador Louis De Jager captured his third career Sunshine Tour crown at the Nedbank Affinity Cup. Jager shot a 12-under-par 204 total to force a playoff with fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Danie Van Tonder. 

De Jager trusted his Pro V1x golf ball and a full compliment of 915 metals, Titleist irons, Vokey wedges and a Scotty Cameron putter to birdie his final two holes in regulation and the first two playoff holes to claim the victory. 

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

#TeamTitleist

For Titleist Pro V1x Loyalist Bubba Watson it was a weekend that featured a few “firsts” in addition to claiming his seventh career PGA Tour title. It was his first event and first win of the new season, his first win outside of the United States, his first WGC title, and he became the first player to win with the new Titleist Pro V1x prototype golf ball on the worldwide professional tours. It was also his first time playing the new golf ball in competition.

And there was certainly a lot of drama leading up to the win as Bubba came to his final hole of regulation two shots off the lead. Watson was faced with a daunting bunker shot but with one perfect pass through the sand he sent his ball onto the green and watched it roll in for eagle.

"It's one of those things, you always joke about holing it, and then it actually went in. So I didn't know how to react and so I just kind of screamed and I lost my voice a little bit," said Watson.

The hole-out secured Bubba’s spot in a playoff with Titleist Brand Ambassador Tim Clark as both players finished at 11-under-par 277. And for an encore, Bubba converted a 20-foot birdie putt on the first hole of the playoff to end the day in Shanghai.

"It means a lot. To win outside the U.S., that's one of my goals for my career...To win a World Golf Championships, one of our premiere events, and again outside the U.S., this means a lot. This is very special to me"

Bubba also used the new Pro V1x prototype while leading the field in birdies and driving distance, a solid combination when looking to claim victory. 

Congratulations, Bubba!

WEEKEND HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE WORLDWIDE PROFESSIONAL TOURS:

It was an all-Titleist three-man playoff at the Panasonic Open India, where Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist S.S.P. Chowrasia of India prevailed for his third career Asian Tour title. Chowrasia closed with a final round six-under-par 66 to earn a spot in the playoff at 12-under-par 276.


On the South African Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Louis de Jager converted an 8-foot putt for birdie on the second hole of a sudden death playoff to capture the NedBank Affinity Cup for his third career Sunshine Tour crown.

To round out the weekend success, Titleist Brand Ambassador Rafael Becker shot a final round 7-under-par 62 to claim the PGA Tour Latinoamerica Alberto do Brazil by three shots.
