Manassero's win also set up a Sunday sweep of the weekend's biggest events for Titleist Brand Ambassadors and Pro V1x golf ball players, with Titleist Brand Ambassador Brendan Steele winning the Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio later in the day for his first PGA Tour victory.Titleist golf ball players have now won 36 times across the worldwide professional tours in 2011, more than four times the nearest competitor with eight and more than all competitors combined.In total, 4,575 players have played Titleist golf balls in competition across the worldwide professional tours this season, more than six times the nearest competitor with 743 and more than all competitors combined.Here's a closer look at the victories by Manassero and Steele:• Officially, Manassero's Sunday victory at 17 years and 363 days old, just 175 days after he become the youngest champion in European Tour history at the Castello Masters last October.
• Said Manassero: “It feels amazing - it’s a great achievement. As I always say I could never have expected it all to have one win before I was 18 and now I’ve got two. … It’s great to be able to celebrate (my birthday and the victory) together. I’m just now concentrating on being in the top 50 now and getting into all the majors. I’m very happy about this achievement.”
• Manassero finished at 16-under 272 (66-71-67-68), tapping in his Titleist Pro V1x golf ball in for par on No. 18 for a one-shot victory over Titleist Brand Ambassador Gregory Bourdy (71-69-66-67--273). Titleist Brand Ambassador Rory McIlory (69-64-72-69--274) finished alone in third.• Manassero, Bourdy and McIlroy all trusted Pro V1x golf balls for their success, combining for 18 birdies and an eagle over the final 18 holes. In total, 96 players in the field played Titleist golf balls, nearly five times the nearest competitor with 20 and more than all competitors combined.• All 42 clubs in the bags of Manassero, Bourdy and McIlroy were Titleist, including a total of three Titleist 910 drivers, four 910F fairway metals and three 910H hybrids.• Manassero – who plays a Titleist 910D2 9.5º driver (Graphite Design Tour AD DI-7 shaft) with his SureFit Tour hosel set at D•1 (-.75º less loft, standard lie) – finished second for the week in Driving Accuracy (76.8 percent).

• To win the Valero Texas Open, Steele overcame treacherous Texas winds and talented field at TPC San Antonio to win his first PGA Tour event in only his 12th-career start.
• Steele, who turned 28 on April 5, used his Vokey Design Spin Milled TVD58º wedge to get up-and-down from behind the 18th green, rolling in his Pro V1x golf ball from 8 feet for par on No. 18 to secure a one-shot victory. He finished at 8-under 280 (69-72-68-71), one shot ahead of two players including Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman (68-73-72-68--281).• Said Steele of his final putt: "Just an outrush of emotion there. I couldn't believe that I had actually done it. It was one of those kind of things. You thought about it as a kid and in high school and everything, this putt is to win a PGA Tour event, this putt is whatever, and you actually have a putt to do that and you actually make it. I mean there's so many times in this game when you don't do what you want or you don't make the putt that you need or you don't hit the shot that you need to hit. It's really something when you pull it off."• Steele is only the fourth rookie to ever win the Valero Texas Open. He earned his 2011 PGA Tour card by winning last November's Nationwide Tour Championship, where he needed at least a fourth-place finish to qualify via the 2010 Nationwide Tour money list.• For the week, Steele tied for second in Birdies (17) and Putts Per Round (26.0), best keeping his wits during an overwhelmingly-windswept week that resulted in the highest winning score in tournament history and so far this year on the PGA Tour.• He was also one of 104 players in the field that played a Titleist golf ball at TPC San Antonio, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 12 and more than all competitors combined.

Now just days from the debut of the New Vokey Design 200 Series in the Vokey Wedgeworks lineup, Master Craftsman Bob Vokey sat down with Team Titleist to share some insight on the 200 Series and discuss the options that will be available through WedgeWorks beginning next week on www.vokey.com.Vokey Design 200 Series wedges, widely played on the worldwide professional tours, feature a classic head shape with a high toe peak and a soft trailing edge.The New Vokey Design 200 Series will feature Spin Milled Condition of Competition (C-C) grooves and the WedgeWorks Exclusives Bright Brushed Chrome finish. They will be available in both right- and left-hand models, and in a variety of loft and bounce combinations ranging from 46º to 60º degrees (in 2º increments).
You can learn more from "The Voke" about the 200 Series wedges in the following Q&A:
Team Titleist: Why is the Vokey Design 200 Series still so popular on Tour?Bob Vokey: It's just a classic, guys love the shape. It fits their eye. Guys like the small trailing edge ribbon in back, it keeps the club from getting stuck in the turf.
TT: Which players use the 200 Series?
BV: We have quite a few – Rickie Fowler, Steve Stricker, Gary Woodland, Geoff Ogilvy, Tim Clark, Bill Haas and several others. Many mix-and-match their wedges with 200 Series, Spin Milled C-C and Vokey Tour Grinds. TT: What's the main difference between the 200 Series and your popular Vokey Design C-C wedges? BV: We'll there are a lot of similarities actually because we based the Spin Milled series on the 200 Series. The shape of the heads are a bit different. The 200 Series has a higher toe peak and it's a bit taller from leading edge to the top-line. The sole profiles are a bit different as well as the loft/bounce configurations. For example, we're going to have a 46.06 in the 200 Series, which we don't have in the SM C-C series. Also we'll have a 52.12 and a 60.12, two high bounce options which should be popular. TT: What did you change on the WedgeWorks version of the 200 Series?
BV: Well, the big thing is the grooves. This version has Spin Milled C-C grooves. When we had the 200 Series a few years back we used cast grooves. We have the surface roughness and groove depth as close as possible to the USGA limit. We also tweaked the graphics on the back so that we could accommodate various toe engravings and stampings. I really like the new look – it's very clean.
• Classic Profile: Tour-inspired teardrop shape with a high toe and shallow heel. Taller leading edge-to-topline inspires confidence around the greens.• Trailing Edge Ribbon: Slight trailing edge relief reduces turf drag and allows for touch shots with face square or open. • Spin Milled C-C Grooves: Condition of Competition (C-C) conforming grooves produce a higher trajectory with medium spin. Approved for play in events adopting the new groove rule.• CNC Cut Grooves: The Spin Milled cutting tool pioneered by Titleist precisely cuts the groove edge radius and groove volume to the limits allowed by the Rules of Golf. • Machined Face Texture: Machined face texture with micro edges up to the USGA limit provides additional ball gripping power for better spin retention on full and partial shots.
