The 2008 Nationwide Tour season came to a close after an exciting finish at the Nationwide Tour Championship at TPC Craig Ranch. PGA TOUR cards for 2009 were awarded to the Top 25 finishers on the season-ending money list. Nineteen of the Top 25 are Titleist golf ball loyalists, including nine who are considered Titleist Brand Ambassadors, those who rely upon Titleist golf balls and equipment throughout the bag.
Titleist Brand Ambassadors and their position on the final money list include: Brendon de Jonge (2nd), Jarrod Lyle (4th), Colt Knost (6th), Darron Stiles (7th), Greg Chalmers (8th), Aron Price (18th), Marc Leishman (T19), Bryce Molder (23rd) and Matt Weibring (24th). The ten additional golf ball loyalists who trust the Pro V1 or Pro V1x for their success include: Jeff Klauk (3rd), Bill Lunde (5th), Scott Piercy (9th), Greg Owen (10th), Peter Tomasulo (11th), Rick Price (12th), David Mathis (14th), D.A. Points (16th), Arjun Atwal (17th) and Spencer Levin (22nd).
Titleist was the overwhelming most played golf ball at the Nationwide Tour Championship with 47 players, which was 80 percent of the field and more than 11 times the nearest competitor with four players. Titleist was also the top choice in the iron sets (23), wedge (59) and putter (24) categories.
We caught up with several graduating Titleist Brand Ambassadors who shared their thoughts as they look ahead to playing on the 2009 PGA TOUR… check out the video below:
Great to see southpaw Greg Chalmers make it back to the PGA Tour. Could you give us some lefty love and tell us what's in his bag? Thanks.

Could you tell me what clubs Bryce Molder has in the bag? I played the Titleist 907D2 driver this year and was going to pick up one of the newer models in the winter. Which of the 909 models would most resemble the 907D2 in looks and performance characteristics? Thank you for your time.
