Titleist Brand Ambassador Andrew Dodt posted a one-shot win at the True Thailand Classic. It marked the third career victory for the 29-year old Dodt, who closed with three consecutive 5-under-par 67’s en route to a 16-under-par 272 victory total. The victory was especially meaningful for Andrew. 

"I went home last year, spent 12 months at home, played the Asian Tour again, found myself again, found my game and to be in the winner’s circle again – it’s unbelievable.”

 On the Australasian Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Aaron Townsend won the Victorian PGA Championship by one shot in dramatic fashion over fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Strange. Townsend holed his bunker shot for birdie on the 72nd hole to close with a 6-under-par 66 en route to a 13-under-par 275 victory total.

"I played great today. I couldn't have asked for a better start (6-under through 10 holes). It's nice to get a win so early in the season. Hopefully I can build on it," said Townsend.

Certainly one of the prettiest golf courses in the world. So that combination certainly brings me back," said Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth.

Defending champion and Titleist Brand Ambassador Jimmy Walker certainly enjoys coming back to this event, where he has had extraordinary success. 

"It's always nice to be back in this area. I think it's just a beautiful place. We love Carmel, we love coming here. I don't think there's any better place to play golf."

BY THE NUMBERS: 2015 AT&T PEBBLE BEACH NATIONAL PRO-AM

 This week at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Titleist is the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 96 players in the field trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That's more than 4 times the nearest competitor with 21.

Titleist was also the top choice in the approach, sand and lob wedge (135) category.

The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-AM is one of the most popular stops on the PGA Tour for players, and fans alike.  Contested on three of the most scenic and challenging golf courses in the world, the field is set to face a stern test along the shores of the Pacific.

And few players in the field know how to manage the difficult conditions and changing venues better than defending champion and Titleist Brand Ambassador Jimmy Walker. 

"I feel like I am very good from the native rough out here, being able to effectively hit out of it is a big advantage," said Walker. "I also don't mind putting on Poa Annua greens. I seem to feel very comfortable on them."

Jimmy also credits much of his success to the fact he truly enjoys the courses in the Pro-Am rotation.

"I enjoy the golf courses and when you enjoy the golf courses it sets you up mentally to be in a better frame of mind. When you feel comfortable, you play well," said Walker.

Walker has relied on a full bag of Titleist equipment including 915 metals, MB irons, Vokey wedges and a Scotty Cameron putter to currently rank in the Top-15 in three important statistical categories, strokes gained tee-to-green (13), strokes gained putting (10) and strokes gained total (4). Clear indications that he has the complete game needed to compete at most venues.

Good luck to Jimmy and all of #TeamTitleist this week.
