Scott Stallings Wins First Career PGA Tour Crown in all-Titleist Playoff. World No. 1 Yani Tseng Makes History Capturing 5th Career Major.
Fairhaven, MA (August 1, 2011) - Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Stallings won The Greenbrier Classic with one of the year's most extraordinary finishes, trusting a Pro V1x golf ball, new Titleist AP2 prototype irons and a bag full of Titleist equipment to his first PGA Tour victory.
Stallings, 26, emerged from an all-Titleist playoff with a birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to cap off a three-win week for Titleist golf ball players around the world, including Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng, who won the Ricoh Women's British Open to become the youngest player across all tours to win a fifth major championship.
Stalling's comeback victory featured eight birdies over his final 11 holes, including consecutive 2’s – one to join the playoff with fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Bill Haas and Pro V1x loyalist Bob Estes, and one to win the tournament – on the 169-yard par-3 18th hole. He relied on the Pro V1x golf ball, new AP2 prototype 9-iron and Scotty Cameron by Titleist 009 prototype putter for his success.
The trio finished regulation at 10-under 270, sitting atop a leaderboard that featured eight Titleist Brand Ambassadors and nine Titleist golf ball players in the top 10, including: Brendon de Jonge (T4, Pro V1x), Cameron Tringale (T4, Pro V1x), Jimmy Walker (T4, Pro V1), Gary Woodland (T4, Pro V1), Webb Simpson (T9, Pro V1x) and Kyle Stanley (T9, Pro V1x).
For the week, Stallings finished second in birdies (19) and tied for second in Greens in Regulation (79.2%), becoming the third player to win on the PGA Tour trusting new 712 Series prototype irons since their launch five weeks ago at the AT&T National. That week, Stallings put the new prototype irons in the bag after just one practice round.
With his victory at the Greenbrier Classic playing the new AP2 prototype irons, Stallings joins Titleist Brand Ambassador Nick Watney, who won the AT&T National playing the new AP2 prototype irons, and Titleist Brand Ambassador Chris Kirk, who won the Viking Classic using the new CB prototype irons.
Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at The Greenbrier Classic with 109 players, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 14. Titleist also was first in iron sets (49), including 27 sets of new 712 Series prototype irons; sand, lob and approach wedges(149); and putters (64).
