As the PGA Tour’s Fall Series rolled on this past weekend at the inaugural McGladrey Classic at Sea Island in St. Simons Island, GA, Pro V1x loyalist Heath Slocum carded a 14-under 266 to earn his fourth PGA Tour career win.

There was plenty of excitement and a lot of players in the hunt on Sunday but Slocum was able to fend off the field to win the tournament by one stroke over Titleist Brand Ambassador Bill Haas (Pro V1x, new 910D2 driver, new 910F fairway metal, CB irons, Vokey Design wedges, Scotty Cameron Kombi putter) – who won the first of the Fall Series events last week at the Viking Classic.

When asked about his win, Slocum said, “Obviously getting my fourth win, I mean getting any win, first and foremost, it's been wonderful. I mean I think that's why we play golf is to win.  I mean there's just no other feeling like it.”

Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the McGladrey Classic with 96 players, eight times the nearest competitor with 12.   Of the 11 players who finished tied for 9th place or better at the event, 8 trusted a Titleist golf ball for their success.

This tournament also marked the beginning of the tour seeding process for the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x prototype golf balls. In the first week the prototypes were available for Tour players, 22 of the 96 players who trusted a Titleist golf ball at the event put one of the new golf balls in play.  10 players put the new 2011 Pro V1 in play, while 12 players trusted the new 2011 Pro V1x model.

Titleist also was first in iron sets (42); sand, lob and approach wedges (118); and putters (59).

It was also an all Titleist finish at the Navistar LPGA Classic where Katherine Hull trusted her Pro V1x to record her first win of the year and second of her career. 

Hull posted a one-stroke victory over Brittany Lincicome (Pro V1x) finished at 19-under 269.  After opening with a 68, Hull had three straight bogey-free 67s.
