Tour validation continues for the New 2013 Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x, as Titleist golf balls were relied on by more than 300 players on the three professional tours competing worldwide this weekend.
At the AT&T National Pro-Am at Pebble Beach, three of the top five finishers relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success, including Titleist Brand Ambassador Jimmy Walker (New 2013 Pro V1) and Titleist golf ball loyalist James Hahn (Pro V1x). On the Champions Tour, the winner trusted the New 2013 Pro V1x golf ball for the first time in competition and won his first-ever event at the Allianz Championship in Florida. Finally on the European Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassadors George Coetzee (New 2013 Pro V1x) tied for third place at the Joburg Open in South Africa, marking his fourth consecutive top-10 finish.
Let’s get to the Team Titleist weekend wrap-up…

PGA TOUR: 2013 AT&T NATIONAL PRO-AM
Titleist was the top choice in golf balls (102), sand, lob and approach wedge (128) and putters (56) among the field of 156 at the AT&T National Pro-Am. In fact, Titleist golf balls were played by more than four times the nearest competitor with 23. A total of 60 players at the event relied upon the New 2013 Pro V1 (9) or New 2013 Pro V1x (51) that began shipping to golf shops worldwide in January.
Three of the top five finishers at the event relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success, including Titleist Brand Ambassador Jimmy Walker (New 2013 Pro V1) and Titleist golf ball loyalist James Hahn (Pro V1x).
The T3 finish at Pebble Beach was the best of the year for Walker, who closed with a bogey-free 66 on Sunday. He has now played in and made the cut at all five full-field events this year, including a previous best finish of T4 at the Farmers Insurance Open. He is scheduled to play again in next week’s Northern Trust Open where he finished T4 a year ago, two strokes out of a three-way playoff which was won by fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Bill Haas.
