It was a big Sunday for Titleist Brand Ambassador Geoff Ogilvy this past weekend at the Barracuda Championship where he not only took home top honors but also punched his ticket to this week's PGA Championship, earned a spot at next year's Tournament of Champions in Kapalua and jumped up 65 spots on the FedEx Cup standings.

Geoff also became the first player to win on the PGA Tour with a new Titleist 915 prototype driver in his bag.

As Geoff said in his post round interview, "It was a satisfying win", and we would certainly agree.

So let's take a look inside the bag at the Titleist equipment Geoff trusted en route to his victory this weekend...

What's in Geoff's Bag?

Golf Ball: Pro V1x
Driver: Titleist 915 Prototype Driver (9.5) With Aldila Rogue 70 (X) shaft, and SureFit Tour Hosel Setting A•1

Congratulations, Geoff!

Playing a Titleist Pro V1x golf ball and a full bag of Titleist equipment (including a new 915D2 prototype driver - available in November), Titleist Brand Ambassador Geoff Ogilvy captured his eighth career PGA TOUR title at the Barracuda Championship on Sunday in Reno, NV. Geoff carded two eagles, 22 birdies, 43 pars and only five bogies in the tournament to secure a total of 49 points in the modified Stableford scoring event.

On the Champions Tour, Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Kenny Perry converted a 15-foot putt for birdie on the final hole of the 3M Championship to top Bernhard Langer (Pro V1) by one shot. Perry closed with a 7-under-par 65 for his second victory of the year and seventh overall on the Champions Tour.

Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Satoshi Kodaira closed with a final round of 4-under 68 en route to a 16-under-par 272 victory total to claim victory at the Fukushima Open on the Japan Tour. 

On the Canadian PGA Tour, Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Brock Mackenzie closed with a 6-under-par 66 to secure a four-stroke victory at the ATB Financial Classic. MacKenzie's victory total of 27-under-par is the second-lowest mark in Canadian PGA Tour Canada history. The win marks his second career Canadian PGA Tour title.

And to round out the week's success, Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Keith Horne earned a three-shot victory at the Vodacom Origins of Golf at St. Francis Links to secure his sixth Sunshine Tour title.

With five more wins this week, Titleist’s year-to-date victory count advances to 106. That's more than four times the nearest competitor with 23 and more than all competitors combined.

In total, 14,867 players have teed up Titleist golf balls in competition on the 2014 worldwide professional tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with 2,444 and more than all competitors combined.

An international field has assembled in Akron, Ohio this week for the WGC Invitational at Firestone CC. Featuring 76 of the best golfers in the world from 22 different countries, the field will be tested by the difficult 7,343-yard South Course as players look to claim the prestigious title and build momentum leading into next week's PGA Championship.

 With one of the largest purses of the season and bonus FedEx Cup points at stake, it's no surprise that 42 players in the limited field will trust a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success.

That’s more than four times the nearest competitor with 9 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice among players in the hybrids (12), irons (23) and sand, lob and approach wedge (63) categories. Titleist also shared the top spot in the driver category with 21 drivers in play.

Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!

Almost every golfer watches with amazement when a PGA Tour player hits a high, towering draw off the tee. The distance and control allows a player to setup an attacking approach shot into the green.
