Titleist is #1 at 2011 U.S. Junior Championships
Posted: July 25, 2011
At last week's U.S. Junior Championships, two of the biggest stages in junior golf, an overwhelming number of players relied on Titleist golf balls and equipment for their success – including the two champions, both of whom used Pro V1x golf balls, Titleist 910 drivers and bags full of Titleist equipment.
At the U.S. Junior Amateur at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton, Wash., 131 players in the 156-player field (84 percent) trusted Titleist golf balls, more than 13 times the nearest competitor with 10.
Titleist was also the top choice in every equipment category tee-to-green, including drivers (67); iron sets (71); metal woods (201); hybrids (48); sand, lob and approach wedges (263) and putters (87).
The champion, who won the event for the second time in three years, played a Pro V1x golf ball and a bag full of Titleist equipment, including a Titleist 910 driver and fairway metals, AP2 irons, Vokey Design Spin Milled wedges and Scotty Cameron putter.
The momentum continued at the U.S. Girls' Junior at Olympia Field Country Club in Chicago, where Titleist golf balls were played by 129 of 155 players (83 percent), more than 14 times the nearest competitor with nine.
Titleist was also first in iron sets (T-1, 33); and sand, lob and approach wedges (197).
The winner played a Pro V1x golf ball, Titleist 910 driver and fairway metals, CB irons and Vokey Design Spin Milled wedges.
The success across all equipment categories is continued proof that when endorsement money is taken out of the game, Titleist is an even greater favorite of the future of competitive golf and serious golfers everywhere.
