Adam Scott wins the EDS Byron Nelson Championship
Posted: April 28, 2008
Titleist ambassador Adam Scott captured his sixth career PGA Tournament title with a dramatic playoff victory at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship. He converted a 9-foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation to force a playoff, then drained a 48-foot birdie putt that traveled over two ridges on the third extra hole for the win. Adam finished regulation at 7-under 273, then parred the first two playoff holes before draining the roller coaster putt.
Trusting his Titleist equipment from tee-to-green, Scott finished among the Top 10 in Driving Distance (7th/302.6), Putts Per GIR (9th/1.696) and Greens in Regulation (T9/63.9). Sunday's win marks the 14th of Adam's career as a professional, including his second of the year. He captured the Qatar Masters on the PGA European Tour in January after firing a final round 11-under 61. He has finished among the top 25 in each of the five PGA TOUR events he has completed this season. He was forced to withdraw from the Shell Houston Open after owning the first round lead with a 63.
Titleist was the most played golf ball at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship with 107 players, more than five times the nearest competitor with 21. In fact, 9 of the 12 players who finished among the top 7 and ties trusted Titleist golf balls for their success. The victory was the 11th by a Titleist golf ball player on the 2008 PGA TOUR, more than twice the nearest competitor. In addition, Titleist was field favorite in irons sets (41), wedges (155) and putters (58), and second in drivers (42).
