Titleist Brand Ambassador Zach Johnson fired four consecutive rounds in the 60's to edge fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott by two shots at the first full-field event of the 2009 season, the Sony Open in Hawaii. Scott tied for second with Titleist golf ball loyalist David Toms, both of whom trusted the new 2009 Pro V1 for their success.

Johnson closed with a 5-under 65 to finish at 15-under 265 at Waialae, securing his fifth career PGA Tour title. Scott fired a final round 6-under 64, while Toms closed with a 66. Johnson is off to a scorching start this season, finishing 6th at the season-opening, winners-only Mercedes-Benz Championship last week. Statistically, Johnson tied for 3rd in Driving Accuracy with his Titleist 909D2 driver. He also displayed a masterful iron game, thanks in part to the new set of AP2 irons he put in the bag last week at Kapalua. Zach had this to say about the change to his irons:

"(last season) My lower mid-irons were different than my upper irons and now I'm straight AP2s because of the shot and spin rate I'm putting out. It's been fantastic. I think they are a little bit more consistent. I think they are a little bit -- consistent as far as trajectory and spin, which is great. It's just a matter of technology and getting better and better, and certainly Titleist putting the right ball with the right club in my hand, essentially what it comes down to."
