Consistent success on the PGA Tour takes complete confidence in your equipment and total belief in yourself. Titleist Brand Ambassador Zach Johnson once again demonstrated both, trusting the Pro V1x golf ball and a bag full of Titleist equipment in his come-from-behind, record-setting performance at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Capping his seventh career win in style, Zach closed with consecutive rounds of 64 en route to his tournament record score of 21-under par. When it comes to performance excellence, shot to shot, and round to round, more of the world’s best trust their game to Titleist.
After opening up his round with a pair of birdies, the 2007 Masters champion started draining long putts on the back nine. He birdied five of the final nine holes despite two weather delays and posted a new tournament record of 21-under 259. The win marks the seventh career championship for the 34-year-old Johnson on the PGA Tour. He led the field in birdies for the week with 24 and hit 84.7% of Greens in Regulation, also ranking first. Johnson also hit 69.6% of the fairways at Colonial, tying for 10th in that category and ranked 11th in Putts per Green in Regulation (1.656). #1 BALL, IRON,WEDGE and PUTTER: According to the Darrell Survey, Titleist was the overwhelming GOLF BALL of choice at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with 76 players, more than five times the nearest competitor with 15.

Following last week’s BMW PGA Championship played in stunning English sunshine at Wentworth (yes, you did read that right, we had sunshine in England!!) the European Tour heads to the equally sunny climes of the Spanish capital for the Madrid Masters. A number of players arrived in Madrid via Walton Heath Golf Club for 36-holes of U.S Open qualifying on Monday and, as you can imagine, this meant a relatively relaxed practice schedule for many. As is the norm on the European Tour, the Wednesday before the event saw the players assemble for the Pro-Am competition. Each week on the European Tour the Pro-Am competitions attract a sprinkling of celebrities and this week was no different. With the tournament being held in the home of the world famous Real Madrid Football Club a couple of first team players from ‘Los Blancos’ teed it up for the Wednesday Pro-Am.

Lt. Col. Scott Bartlett got more than he expected when he attended the 29th Infantry Division Officers' Association Hail and Farewell event at Fort Belvoir GC in Virginia on May 16. It just so happened the Commander in Chief, President Barack Obama, was playing golf at Fort Belvoir and learned that Bartlett had just been promoted. After his round, the President congratulated Bartlett and presented him with one of his custom Titleist Pro V1 golf balls, complete with the Presidential Seal and number 44 play number.

I'm taking this week off and enjoying some time at home. It was a great win in San Antonio! I kept feeling my game was right there so I decided to add San Antonio to my schedule, I had never played there before but I felt like it was a good date for a three week stretch. I was finally able to put it altogether. It had been awhile since I had done that on the TOUR. I made a lot of key putts coming down the stretch, I hit some good shots and a few bad shots but it was great to be in position where the juices were flowing. Greg Norman designed the course and when I first played it early that week I felt like the landscape looked very similar to Australia and I had a feeling that an Aussie would do well. I'm just very happy that Aussie was me! I hope to carry the momentum to The Memorial which will be my next tournament.
I posted it on Facebook and Twitter but I also want to take a moment here to thank everyone for their support and congratulatory messages. It truly means a lot to me. It's been a couple of years since I've won on the US TOUR and it's been a long road back but I've been working hard to get there. The work never really goes away in this sport because there's always some guy ready to take your place. Just know I never gave up and one of the reasons is because I've had such great support so I want to say a huge thank you!
I'm going to spend the weekend watching some Aussie football and catching up with my mates. Next week I'll get back into practice with my swing coach and preparations for Ohio.
Enjoy your weekend!-Adam
