Several Team Titleist members will be witnesses to great golf shots this weekend in Arkansas, where the LPGA's best have gathered for the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G.

Team Titleist members Caleb W., Tim S., Jason S., Eric S., Ryan G., and Steve R., won tickets to this event, and will be hanging out at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, Ark., alongside one of the season's strongest fields.

 Of the top 50 players on the 2011 LPGA Money List, 46 are teeing it up.

No 1 on that list is Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng. She is followed by Pro V1 loyalist Cristie Kerr and Pro V1x loyalist Stacy Lewis.

Tseng, also the No. 1 player in the Rolex World Rankings, shot a final-round 6-under 65 to win last year's event by one shot.

"It's very exciting to be back here. I played 18 holes today and the course played much longer than the last year...," Tseng said. "The greens are pretty firm, so  it's going to be a very exciting week, very challenging."

Also in this week's field is Pro V1x loyalist Danielle Kang, the two-time U.S. Women's Amateur Champion who is making her professional debut.

TV coverage of the tournament on Golf Channel is as follows (all times EST):

Solidifying his position as one of the most consistent and clutch performers on the PGA Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson rolled in his Pro V1x golf ball in for three consecutive birdies Monday afternoon at TPC Boston to close out a fist-pumping playoff-victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Trusting a Pro V1x golf ball and bag full of Titleist equipment, Simpson charged to the winner's circle for the second time in just 16 days, highlighting another season of dominance for Titleist on the 2011 PGA Tour.

Titleist golf ball players have won 27 of the 37 PGA Tour events played so far this season, nine times the nearest competitor with three and more than all competitors combined.

Simpson’s win increases the Titleist victory count on the PGA Tour across every major equipment category, including golf balls (27), drivers (15), irons (15) and wedges (19). Titleist is also the top choice among champions in the putter category with 16.

Simpson, who earned his first-career victory Aug. 21 at the Wyndham Championship, is also one of 12 Titleist Brand Ambassadors that have combined to win 15 PGA Tour events this season, including: Steve Stricker (2), Nick Watney (2), Adam Scott, Scott Piercy, Johnson Wagner, Gary Woodland, Brendan Steele, Harrison Frazar,  Chris Kirk and Scott Stallings.

On Labor Day, Simpson's efforts included a final-round 6-under 65 that featured a front-nine 30 as well as a 30-footer for birdie on TPC Boston's par-5 18th to get into a playoff with fellow Pro V1x golf ball player Chez Reavie.

On the first playoff hole, Simpson got up-and-down from a tough lie on the left side of the 18th green, rolling his Pro V1x golf ball in from 15 feet for birdie.

Next, at the par-4 17th, Simpson hit his Vokey Design Spin Milled TVD wedge to 8 feet and sank the birdie putt to capture a victory that could make him one of the game's household names.

Simpson, 26, moved to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup Playoffs Standings, jumped to 14th in the Official World Golf Ranking and assured himself a spot on the U.S. Presidents Cup team that will compete later this year in Australia.

"It's been a whirlwind of a few weeks. …," said Simpson, sporting the same light-purple shirt he wore during the final round at Wyndham.

"I don't really know what to think right now, but I'm certainly thankful for the chance to win and having been able to finish the round with a birdie, and then birdie the first two holes in a playoff was truly awesome."

Simpson has recorded nine top-10 finishes and 17 top-25's in 2011. He is No. 1 in the PGA Tour's All-Around statistical ranking, third in scoring average (69.30) and fourth in final-round scoring average (69.00).

At Wyndham, Simpson's final round featured three birdies and zero bogeys. Monday At Deutsche Bank, he made five birdies, one eagle and one bogey.

"The goal that I set out to accomplish is to be one of the best players in the world, if not the best," he said. "But you know, I don't set result-oriented goals for myself. I just try to get up every day and do the most I can to improve my game."

Both Simpson and Reavie finished the four rounds at TPC Boston at 15-under 269, two shots ahead of three players including Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald.

Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at The Deutsche Bank Championship with 62 players, nearly five times the nearest competitor with 13.

Titleist also was first in iron sets (34);  sand, lob and approach wedges (96); and putters (39).

• CHINA PGA TOUR: Pro V1x loyalist Rory Hie birdied his final three holes to post a final-round 7-under 65 and cruise to victory at the Tangshan China PGA Tour event.

Hie, 23, finished at 15-under 273, seven shots clear of the field. It was his sixth-career win as a professional.

Nine of the top 10 finishers relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success, including Titleist Brand Ambassadors C.J. Gatto and Eom Jae Woong, who tied for third.

Titleist golf ball loyalists accounted for more than 83 percent of the field with 104 of 125 players, eight times more than the nearest competitor with 13.

TITLEIST BRAND AMBASSADOR WEBB SIMPSON RALLIES TO CAPTURE
DEUTSCHE BANK CHAMPIONSHIP IN ALL-PRO V1x PLAYOFF

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (September 5, 2011) –  Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson closed with three consecutive birdies to capture the Deutsche Bank Championship on the second hole of a sudden death playoff with Chez Reavie.  While the champion may have been in doubt when both players returned to the 18th hole for the start of the playoff, the winning golf ball was not.
