Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman Wins Deutsche Bank Championship; Second Victory for Titleist 910 Prototype Driver
Posted: September 6, 2010
Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman made it look easy on Labor Day, recording 11 birdies in a final-round 9-under 62 at TPC Boston that earned him a five-shot victory and moved him to No. 2 in the FedEx Cup Playoffs standings.
"It's a no-brainer. Best ever (victory)," said Hoffman, who started to pull away from the field after holing out from a bunker for birdie on the par-4 13th. "To go out and shoot 62 on a pretty tough golf course (in the final round), it's fun."
Hoffman, 33, posted four rounds in the 60s (64-67-69-62), shooting a back-nine 29 Sunday to tie the tournament record with a 22-under 262 total and collect his second career PGA Tour victory. He rolled in his Titleist Pro V1 golf ball for birdie on the par-5 18th and pumped his fist to the Boston crowd. Hoffman was one of 64 players in the field of 99 players at TPC Boston that trusted a Titleist golf ball, more than seven times the nearest competitor with nine.
He also became the second player to find the winner's circle using the Titleist 910 prototype driver following Titleist Brand Ambassador Ross Fisher's victory last month at the Irish Open.
Hoffman, who plays a 910D3 9.5 (D1 setting) with Diamana Whiteboard 83X shaft, finished the week tied for fifth in Driving Accuracy (78.6 percent) and 10th in Driving Distance (299.8 yards).
In total, 19 players in the Deutsche Bank field gamed the Titleist
910 prototype driver, including Titleist Brand Ambassadors Geoff Ogilvy (T-2) and Adam Scott (T-5).
Also in Hoffman's bag are the Titleist MB irons (3-9), Vokey Design Spin Milled wedges (48, 56, 60) and Scotty Cameron Red X putter. Titleist was the No. 1 choice of players at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Iron Sets (30), Sand, Lob and Approach Wedges (84) and Putters (37).
