With one foot in a lake, two hands on his Vokey Design Spin Milled wedge and the game's richest prize on the line, Titleist Brand Ambassador Bill Haas stood over his Titleist Pro V1x golf ball and hit one of the PGA Tour's all-time clutch shots Sunday afternoon at East Lake, propelling him to victories in both the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup Playoffs.On the second hole of an all-Titleist playoff with Pro V1x loyalist Hunter Mahan, Haas' approach shot hit the left side of the 17th green and dribbled to the edge of the lake, leaving about one-third of his ball sitting below the water line.Haas never hesitated, trusting his Titleist golf ball and equipment would reward him for a great swing."We get up there and that's when I see the ball, and I say in my head, 'I have a shot,' " said Haas, who immediately pulled his Vokey Design Spin Milled 60•E (bent to 59º) wedge from his bag, hopped down the four-foot embankment, stuck one foot in the water and waggled his wedge over his Pro V1x."You play it like a bunker shot, for those of you that want to know, if there's a little bit of water, if you don't mind getting your feet dirty, and then blast it out of there," he said. "It came out perfect."Haas' Pro V1x golf ball floated out of the lake, landed 3 feet past the hole, spun and stopped. (You can watch a replay in the video below.) He tapped in for par to halve the hole and extend the playoff."I won't forget it," said Haas, who also made a remarkable up-and-down from the right side of the 18th green to have the first playoff hole, sinking a downhill, bending 12-footer for par. "That's for sure."About 15 minutes later, Haas executed another perfect stroke with his Scotty Cameron Kombi Mid putter, rolling in his Pro V1x from 5 feet for a two-putt par to win the Tour Championship, the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and all the perks and prizes (including $11.4 million) that go along with them.Titleist golf ball players have now won over 70 percent (28 of 39) of events played this season on the PGA Tour, with 13 Titleist Brand Ambassadors combining for 16 of those victories.Haas' victory was also one of six on the week for Titleist Pro V1x players, bringing the 2011 win total across the worldwide professional tours to 129, 108 more than the nearest competitor with 21 and more than all competitors combined.At the Tour Championship, eight of the top 10 players on the final leader board trusted a Titleist golf ball for their success, with Haas and Mahan each finishing regulation at 8-under 272. Haas, who moved to No. 20 in the Official World Golf Ranking, was the only player to shoot four rounds in the 60s (68-67-69-68),
leading the field with 22 birdies and 1.58 putts per green in
regulation.Luke Donald (Pro V1x), K.J. Choi (Pro V1,) and Aaron Baddeley (Pro V1x) shared third place at 7-under 273. Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott (Pro V1) and Charles Howell III (Pro V1x) tied for sixth at 6-under 274, and Titleist Brand Ambassador Bo Van Pelt tied for ninth another shot back.Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the Tour Championship with 20 players, five times the nearest competitor with four and more than all competitors combined.Titleist also was first in fairway metals (11); iron sets (9); sand, lob and approach wedges (24); and putters (12).Here's a closer look at Bill Haas' Titleist equipment:Ball: Titleist Pro V1xDriver: Titleist 910D2 8.5º (Fujikura Speeder 757)3-wood: Titleist 910F 13.5º (Fujikura Motore VC 8.1)Irons: Titleist CB 2-P (True Temper Dynamic Gold)Wedges: Vokey Design Spin Milled 54•10º, 60º•E (True Temper Dynamic Gold)Putter: Scotty Cameron Kombi Mid
From Bill Haas' Tour Championship-FedEx Cup double to Kenneth Ferrie's playoff success at the Austrian Open, Titleist Pro V1x players dominated golf headlines over the weekend, combining for six wins around the world.Titleist golf ball players have now won 129 times across the worldwide pro tours in 2011, 108 more than the nearest competitor with 21 and more than all competitors combined.Like Haas' heroics Sunday on the PGA Tour, Ferrie's victory came down to the wire. He won the first hole of a sudden-death playoff, sticking his approach to 6 feet and rolling his Pro V1x in the bottom of the cup to capture his third European Tour title.“I feel amazing right now...,” said Ferrie, who trusted a Titleist Pro V1x golf ball and a bag full of Titleist equipment – including new Prototype CB (712 Series) irons, which he used to hit 79.2 percent of his greens in regulation.“It means the world to me. I have been working very hard and doing all the right things but I just haven’t had the results to back it up. So to win here, under the pressure of a play-off, is amazing and it makes all the hard work worthwhile.”Ferrie topped a leader board that included eight Titleist golf ball players in the top 10. Titleist was the most played golf ball at the event with 94 players, more than five times the nearest competitor with 18 and more than all competitors combined.Here's a closer look at Kenneth Ferrie's Titleist equipment:Ball: Titleist Pro V1xDriver: Titleist 910D2 9.5º, C•1 SureFit Tour Setting (Mitsubishi Fubuki 63)3-wood: Titleist 910F 13.5º, A•3 Setting (Project X 7B3)Hybrids: Titleist 910H 19º, A•1 Setting (Aldila NV 85 Hybrid) Irons: Titleist CB (712 Series) 3-9 (Project X Rifle)Wedges: Vokey Design Spin Milled 248•06º, 255•10º, 60•P (Project X Rifle)Putter: Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport• NATIONWIDE TOUR: In an all-Titleist playoff at the Soboba Golf Classic, Pro V1x loyalist Ted Potter Jr. birdied the second hole of a sudden-death playoff to outlast Pro V1 loyalist Andres Gonzales and Pro V1x loyalist Miguel Angel Carballo for his second victory of the season.The victory moved Potter to No. 3 on the Nationwide Tour money list with only five events remaining in 2011, guaranteeing him a PGA Tour card for the 2012 season.

Team Titleist hit the ground at East Lake in Atlanta earlier this week,
excited to catch up with all of the Titleist players that qualified for
this week's Tour Championship, including Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson (pictured below).
Twenty of the 30 players in this week's field are relying on Titleist golf balls for their success, five times the nearest competitor with four and more than all competitors combined. Titleist is also first this week in iron sets (9); sand, lob and approach wedges (24); and putters (12).
In total, Titleist golf ball players have won 27 times this season on the PGA Tour, more than six times the nearest competitor and more than all other golf balls combined. Of the six players who have notched two wins in 2011, five trust Titleist Pro V1x golf balls, including Simpson, Nick Watney, Steve Stricker, Mark Wilson and Bubba Watson.
Simpson, the current leader in the FedEx Cup Playoffs, is also one of six players making their debut this week in the FedEx Cup finale.
"You know, my goal starting the FedExCup Playoffs was to be in the top 5
coming in here...," said Simpson. "And to
come in here being No. 1 is great. It's what we worked for all year, and
it's just exciting."Check out all of Team Titleist's pictures from the Tour Championship by clicking on the image below.
