Tee-To-Green Excellence

Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott caps off four-win week for Titleist.
Trusts Pro V1 and full bag of Titleist clubs in Barclays Singapore Open victory.

Fairhaven, MA (November 15, 2010) – Proving he has the game to win anywhere in the world, Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott shot four consecutive rounds in the 60s to capture the weather-delayed Barclays Singapore Open by three shots. Scott relied on the Pro V1 golf ball and a complete bag of Titleist equipment tee-to-green as he outlasted a strong international field en route to his seventh European Tour title and the 18th professional win of his career. On the PGA TOUR, Pro V1 loyalist Robert Garrigus captured the season-ending Children’s Miracle Network Classic, shooting a final round 8-under 64 in Orlando to seal his first TOUR victory. Additional wins on the LPGA and South African Tours advances the 2010 Titleist victory count across the worldwide professional tours to 139, more than six times the nearest competitor with 23.

 

...

The first shipments of the new Titleist 910 drivers began their journeys to golf shops around the world early Monday morning, just as Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott was finishing off his three-shot victory at the weather-delayed Barclays Singapore Open.

In Scott's bag was a Titleist 910D3 10.5 driver with a Proforce V2 86 shaft and the SureFit Tour hosel in the A•1 position (standard loft, standard lie), which helped him hit 73.2 of his fairways for the week at Sentosa Golf Club.

Scott first put the 910 driver in play at the European Tour's Alstom Open de France, just a few weeks after his one-shot victory at the Valero Texas Open.

In his 10 starts since, Scott hasn't finished worse than T-39 (PGA Championship at Whistling Straits), working his way back to No. 20 in the world ranking.

Team Titleist sat down with Adam recently to talk about the new 910 driver. Check out the video below to hear what he had to say.

Here are Master Craftsman Bob Vokey's answers to four more of the nearly 1,000 questions asked by members of Team Titleist and Vokey Nation last week.

There's a lot of great insight here from "The Voke" – who will also be doing a live webcast on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 6 p.m. EST (3 p.m. PST), with our friends over at GolfWRX – so be sure to study up.

Tomorrow morning, we will be posting Bob's answers to the final three questions. (If you missed Bob's answers to the first three questions, click here.) Stay tuned!


Mike T. of Baltimore, Maryland, asks...

Mr. Vokey, could you explain your choice of preferring a soft cast metal for your wedges as opposed to a forging? I've always been pleased with the great feel of Titleist wedges, but could they be even better with a forged head?

Chris S. of Milton, Ga., asks…

What do you think is the most costly mistake that amateurs make when selecting their wedges?

Dale G. of Edmond, Okla., asks...

I am a slider and rarely take a divot. I am wondering, are my shots as effective as someone who has taken a large divot? I feel as though I am compressing the ball, but is the ball reacting the same off my slider wedge as someone who takes a rather large divot?

Josh P. of Saratoga, Calif., asks…

Since I first started using your wedges I have always wondered this question: Have you ever considered making a set of Vokey Irons, not just wedges but a whole 3-PW set?

Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott won his third Barclays Singapore Open this weekend with precision swings, a Titleist Pro V1 golf ball and a bag full of Titleist equipment – including the new Titleist 910 driver, which begins shipping to golf shops worldwide this week.

Scott used a Titleist 910D3 10.5 model with a Proforce V2 86 shaft and the SureFit Tour hosel in the A•1 position (standard loft, standard lie) and hit 73.2 of his fairways for the week at Sentosa Golf Club, which ranked fifth. He was also third in greens in regulation (84.7 percent) and fourth in putts per green in regulation (1.7).

Scott also had in his bag a new Titleist 910Fd 15.0 prototype fairway metal with a Rombax Pro95 shaft and the SFT hosel in the C•2 position (-.75 less loft, +.75 upright), marking the first victory for the 910Fd model on the worldwide professional tours.

In the end, Scott was the only player to finish all four rounds at Sentosa Golf Club in the 60s, posting scores of 65-65-69-68 for a 17-under 267 total and three-shot victory. His final-round 68 included two birdies over his final four holes, including a 25-footer for birdie on the par-5 18th.

After watching his Pro V1 golf ball break slightly left and drop into the bottom of the cup, Scott threw both of his arms into the air, celebrating his second victory of the year and 17th overall as a professional. Scott, who moved to 20th in the world ranking, also won in May at the PGA Tour's Valero Texas Open, where he closed in 67 for a one-shot victory.

“It feels great,” said Scott, who earned back-to-back Barclays Singapore Open victories in 2005 and 2006. “Relief to finally get finished, it’s been a bit of a long week. I’m very happy to be winning here again."

Scott was one of 128 players in the field that trusted a Titleist golf ball, more than four times the nearest competitor with 28.

Here's a closer look at his Titleist equipment:

Ball: Titleist Pro V1
Driver: 910D3 10.5, A•1 SFT Setting (Proforce V2 86)
Fairway wood: 910Fd 15.0, C•2 SFT Setting (Rombax Pro95)
Hybrid: 909H 21.0 (Proforce V2 Hybrid 104)
Irons (3-9): Titleist MB (KBS Tour)
Wedges (49, 54, 60): Vokey Design Spin Milled C-C 200 Series (KBS Tour)
Putter: Scotty Cameron Newport

Scott's victory was one of four on the weekend for Titleist Brand Ambassadors and golf ball loyalists. In 2010, Titleist golf ball players have recorded 139 total victories across the worldwide professional tours, over 100 more than the nearest competitor with 23:

PGA TOUR: Pro V1 loyalist Robert Garrigus closed out the 2010 PGA Tour season with a final-round 8-under 64 at Walt Disney World's Magnolia Course to come from behind and win the Children's Miracle Classic by three shots over Pro V1x loyalist Roland Thatcher.

Both players, however, accomplished the same goal in securing their 2011 PGA Tour cards.

Garrigus began the week at No. 122 on the money list, knowing a bad week would knock him out of the top 125. His victorious 21-under 267 total vaulted him to No. 51, earning him full playing privileges for the next two seasons and a trip to the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at Kapalua in January.

“It feels great to be able to close this one off," said Garrigus.

Thatcher entered the week at No. 179, needing to either win or finish solo second to keep his full-time job for next season. His final-round 2-under 70 was good enough for an 18-under 270 total – one shot ahead of Titleist Brand Ambassadors Rickie Fowler and Johnson Wagner and Pro V1x loyalist Spencer Levin – and moved him safely to No. 122.

Of the 11 players who finished among the top 10 and ties, nine trusted a Titleist golf ball for their success. In total, 89 players put Titleist golf balls in play at the Children's Miracle Network Classic, more than six times the nearest competitor with 14. Titleist also was first in iron sets (34); Sand, Lob and Approach Wedges (105); and Putters (60).

Thatcher joined Pro V1x loyalist Mark Wilson and Titleist Brand Ambassador Michael Connell as the only players to play their way into the top 125 on the final weekend.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Troy Merritt
left Disney with lots of relief and rewards, after closing with a bogey-free 67 to finish at 8-under 280 and tie for 30th. That left Merritt on the number at No. 125 on the money list, allowing him punctuate one of the more exciting stories of the year.



Merritt also topped Fowler and Pro V1x loyalist Aaron Baddeley in a three-way playoff to win the $1 million Kodak Challenge, hitting his 133-yard approach shot into the Magnolia's difficult par-4 17th to inches.

"Well, the first thing I'm going to do is buy my wife a new car," Merrit said.


• LPGA: In-Kyung Kim captured the Lorena Ochoa Invitational for her third career LPGA title, rolling in her Pro V1 golf ball for birdie on 18 for an 8-under 64 and three-shot victory.

Kim, who finished at 19-under 269 at Mexico's Guadalajara Country Club, announced upon winning that she would be donating her entire $220,000 winner's check to charity.

"Well, I don't know how to really take this all in," she said. "But it's been a great week. I mean, on the golf course, I played very good golf all week. The putts pretty much kept dropping today."

Kim was one of 24 players in the 36-player field that trusted a Titleist golf ball, more than all other golf balls combined. Of the 12 players who finished among the top 10 and ties, eight trusted a Titleist golf ball for their success.

SUNSHINE TOUR: It was an all-Titleist Pro V1x playoff at the Sunshine Tour's BMG Classic, where Brandon Pieters made par on the first playoff hole to top Ben Mannix. Pieters and Mannix each finished regulation at 11-under 205.



Titleist was the top golf ball choice at the event with 105 players, more than all other competitors combined.

JAPAN TOUR: Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the Mitsui Sumitomo Visa Taiheiyo Masters with 37 players, compared to 19 for the nearest competitor.

AUSTRALASIAN TOUR: Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the JBWere Masters with 80 percent of the field (96 of 120 players), more than seven times the nearest competitor with 13 players. Eight of the 12 players who finished among the top 10 and ties trusted Titleist golf balls for their success.

We received close to 1,000 questions for Master Craftsman Bob Vokey from Team Titleist and Vokey Nation over the past week, which kept "The Voke" up late a few nights reading through them all.

On Wednesday, Bob sat down with Team Titleist to answer 10 of his favorites. His answers to the first three questions are posted below.

Look for the others to be posted here early next week before Bob's live webcast on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 6 p.m. EST (3 p.m. PST), with our friends over at GolfWRX. (Click here to go to GolfWRX for more details.)
