Team Titleist caught up with Titleist Brand Ambassador Erik Compton yesterday at the AT&T National, just a few days removed from his first-career victory at the Nationwide Tour's Mexico Open.

Erik, 31, a two-time heart transplant recipient, closed with a final-round 6-under 65 at a rainy, windy El Bosque Golf Club for a 17-under 271 and two-shot victory. The win pushed Erik to No. 2 on the Nationwide Tour money list, in prime position to earn a 2012 PGA Tour card.

“My lifelong goal has been to get to the PGA Tour and now I’ve done that,” said Erik, who has now made the cut in 12 of 13 starts this season on the PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour. He is also playing in this week's AT&T National on the PGA Tour.

Check out the above video to hear more from Erik on his victory, the Pro V1x golf ball and his Titleist equipment.

As the country's top PGA club professionals gathered for their 44th national championship at Hershey Country Club in Pennsylvania, the momentum and unmatched success of Titleist across every major equipment category was evident once again.

From golf balls to drivers, fairway metals, hybrids, irons, wedges and putters, more players made Titleist their top equipment choice at the 2011 PGA Professional National Championship than any other.

Not only did more players rely upon Titleist equipment with overwhelming success at the showcase event for PGA club professionals, David Hutsell, director of instruction at the Elkridge Club in Baltimore, won with it.

MAJOR SUCCESS.  INSPIRING PERFORMANCE.
Yani Tseng, Pablo Larrazabal, Erik Compton Lead Titleist to Six-Win Week.

Fairhaven, MA (June 27, 2011) - History was made by Titleist golf ball loyalists this week, as 22-year old Yani Tseng convincingly captured the Wegmans LPGA Championship to become the youngest player to ever win four major championships.  The No. 1 player in women’s golf relied upon the Pro V1x to finish 10 shots clear of the world-class field. 

On the European Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Pablo Larrazabal displayed consistency and perseverance en route to capturing the BMW International Open.  Relying upon the Pro V1x golf ball and a bag full of Titleist equipment, Larrazabal fired four consecutive rounds in the 60’s and won with a birdie on the fifth sudden death playoff hole.

In one of the most emotional victories in any sport, Brand Ambassador Erik Compton also relied upon Titleist equipment from tee-to-green to win the Nationwide Tour's Mexico Open. It marked the first career victory for Compton, whose inspiring performance came three years after his second heart transplant.

Titleist golf ball loyalists also posted victories on the Canadian, Korean and Japan tours to advance Titleist’s year-to-date victory count across the worldwide professional tours to 83, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 11.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Stallings arrived in Philadelphia early Sunday afternoon, ready to get in some extra practice at Aronimink Golf Club, site of this week's AT&T National.

 "As a PGA Tour rookie, anytime you can get an extra look at a course like this you take it," said Stallings.

Waiting for Scott at Arnonimink when he got there: A box of new prototype Titleist AP2 irons (712 series) with Project X shafts, built to his custom specifications.

Titleist's new prototype Titleist AP1, AP2, CB and MB irons (712 Series) are being introduced on the PGA Tour this week for testing and seeding as part of our performance validation process.

Scott put the new prototype AP2 irons in his bag for his Sunday practice round, which he played with fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Bobby Gates. (They got in 36 holes, with a cart.) Bobby also received a box of new prototype Titleist MB irons (Project X shafts), and put them in the bag for his practice round.

Monday morning on the Aronimink range, Scott's previous set of AP2 irons were resting on the ground next to his Titleist staff bag, bound for his locker in the Aronimink clubhouse.
 
"The new ones are in the bag," he said, " no question about it."

Team Titleist spoke briefly with Scott about the new prototype AP2 irons. See what Scott had to say in the video above.
