New Pro V1 loyalist Brenden Pappas fought through rain and uncertainty to win the Nationwide Tour's Pacific Rubiales Bogotá Open in Colombia, marking the second consecutive victory for Titleist golf ball players to start the 2011 Nationwide Tour season.

So far this season, 2,613 players have teed up Titleist golf balls in competition across the worldwide professional tours, more than all other competitors combined.

Pappas posted rounds of 67-66--133 (9-under) at a stormy Bogota Country Club to win the weather-shortened event, rolling in his New Pro V1 golf ball for birdie on the final hole of his second round Sunday morning.

That birdie also turned out to be the game-winner, as lightning later in the day forced officials to shorten the rain-plagued event to 36 holes.

Rain or shine, Pappas was pleased to be off and running.

"My goal this year is to be No. 1 on the money list and it hasn't been in the past," Pappas, 40, told He made 10 birdies and one eagle over the two rounds.

"I had some very stern conversations with myself in the off season, trying to decide what I actually wanted to do with my game," he said. "It must have paid off. I'm in the waning light of my career so I've got to get it done right now. There's no more tomorrow or next year."

Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the Pacific Rubiales Bogota Open with 100 players, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 14 and more than all competitors combined.Last week's winner of the season-opening Panama Claro Championship relied upon a New Pro V1x golf ball.

Titleist also was first at the Bogotá Open in Iron Sets (39); Sand, Lob and Approach Wedges (138); and Putters (62).

PGA TOUR: Ninety-four players at the Honda Classic trusted Titleist golf balls, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 13 and more than all competitors combined. Titleist also was first in Iron Sets (38): Sand, Lob and Approach Wedges (114); and Putters (57).

Happy Friday, Team Titleist!

Steve G. asks…
Will adjusting the loft via SFT affect turf interaction in any way? If so, how? Thanks!


Derek R. asks…
My question is does the 13.5deg 910Fd set on C-4 perform the same as the 15deg set on C-1? What are the advantages/disadvantages if any of these two setups? Thanks!


Ken C. asks...
I loved my 906F 3 wood but somehow graduated to the 909F and now I really love that one. Other than the ability to custom fit the club, how is this club better than my old 909F once I have achieved the perfect customization for myself?


Gregg asks…
What effect will changing to a lighter rear weight screw in my driver have on my ball flight?


Dave M. asks…
I currently have just bought a 910 driver 10.5 degree with V2 shaft stiff C1 Position. I am looking at a new 3 wood 910FD which is 15 degrees, then I would like to have a 5 wood and then replace my 3 iron with a hybrid. I was fitted with the V2 shaft stiff when I bought my driver so should I purchase these three new clubs with the same shaft and same position C1?


Thierry M. asks…
I bought before Christmas a 910D2 8.5 with a Motore F1 75 S flex, which suits me perfectly. I'm looking at adding a 910F 15 to my bag. Should I go for the same shaft ?

Who has the best short game in the world?

Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald, many people will say.

And it's tough to argue, considering Luke's most recent display of around-the-green excellence last week at Dove Mountain in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Luke got his Pro V1x golf ball up-and-down in several momentum-saving situations throughout the week, never trailing in any of his six matches in one of the most dominant performances in tournament history.

Luke recently told Team Titleist that for every two hours he practice on the range, he puts in four hours of work on and around the green.

In his post-victory press conference, Luke credited that work to much of his success.

As did Luke's final-match opponent: "I think he's probably the best in the world in the short game at the moment… Wherever he is, you know that he will make the up-and-down if he doesn't hole it. And it was impressive."

Team Titleist recently caught up with Luke to talk about his short game and the importance of having confidence in his Pro V1x golf ball.

"My golf ball does what I tell it to do most of the time and I'm very fortunate about that," he said.

Check out the above video to hear what else Luke had to say….
