Bubba Watson Captures First Major in all-Titleist Pro V1x Playoff at Masters.

Fairhaven, MA (April 9, 2012) – When Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen began their sudden-death playoff Sunday at the Masters, the winner of the Green Jacket was still in question. The winning golf ball, however, was not. Both players teed up a Titleist Pro V1x. 
Success at Augusta National requires confidence, creativity, focus and a lot of heart.  It also takes unwavering trust in your golf ball.  Watson topped Oosthuizen with a world-class par on the second extra hole – the 10th at Augusta – securing his first major championship along with memories that will last a lifetime.  Watson drove his tee shot long and right, deep into the pine straw.  Watson hit a gap wedge from approximately 160 yards away, working his Pro V1x golf ball with a near 40-yard draw which settled 10 feet from the pin.  Watson then two-putted for the dramatic win, realizing his lifelong dream of winning the Masters.


At the 2012 Masters Tournament, more players are trusting Titleist golf balls in their quest for a green jacket than any other golf ball.

Fifty-three players in the field at Augusta National are relying on Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls for their success, more than four times the nearest competitor with 11 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist is also first in iron sets (26); sand, lob and approach wedges (91); and putters.

Through the first three months of 2012, Titleist golf ball players have combined for 38 wins across the worldwide professional tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with six and more than all other golf balls combined.

On the PGA Tour, Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x players have won 10 times this season, nine more than the nearest competitor with one.

Video: Scott Stallings' Lucky Pencil

About a month before Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Stallings won for the first time on the PGA Tour, he received a small gift from his caddie, Josh Graham: A pencil from Augusta National Golf Club, green with gold lettering.

"This is going to be the goal for the rest of the year," Josh told him.

Scott put the pencil in his yardage book, not knowing he would soon be using it to record six back-nine Sunday birdies at the Greenbrier Classic – a run that propelled him to a playoff victory and his first invitation to the Masters.

Team Titleist talked to Scott recently about his lucky pencil and the attention it got after his victory. Check it out in the above video.
