Fairhaven, MA (August 15, 2011) – Three Titleist golf ball loyalists earned victories across the worldwide professional tours this week, while nine of the Top 10 finishers at the PGA Championship relied upon the #1 ball golf for their success. Titleist golf ball players have accumulated 106 victories across the 2011 worldwide professional tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with 16.

Friesen posted three consecutive birdies over his closing three holes to complete a bogey-free final-round of 8-under 64 en route to a 26-under 262 total and five-shot victory. Here's a closer look at Steve Friesen's Titleist equipment:
