Four of the world's best golfers are hitting their Titleist Pro V1x golf balls around China this week as they compete in the seven-day, eight-course, 18-hole 2011 Shui On Land China Golf Challenge.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Rory McIlroy has joined Pro V1x loyalists Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and Liang Wen-chong in the made-for-television event that is being called golf's version of "The Amazing Race."

 The par-72 competition began Monday, Oct. 10, at Tomson Golf Club in Shanghai, where the foursome played the opening two holes before boarding jets en route to Jinsha Lake International Golf Club in Zhengzhou.

It will conclude Sunday, Oct. 16, at Ceasars Golf in Macau, seven cities and over 2,100 miles from where the opening tee shots were hit.

“It’s going to be a long week, especially looking at the number of flights and the mileage we’re going to cover," said Poulter, who rolled his Pro V1x in for birdie on the first hole Monday and took the Day 1 lead at 1 under par.

"The format of the event will make it difficult to get into a rhythm for each set of holes, but it’s interesting and challenging.”

BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMANCES LEAD TITLEIST GOLF BALL LOYALISTS TO EIGHT-WIN WORLDWIDE SWEEP
Molder, Fowler, Slattery, Faxon Earn First Wins Trusting New 712 Series Irons

Fairhaven, MA (October 10, 2011) –  Buoyed by the breakthrough performances of young guns and the consistent play of established stars, Titleist equipment loyalists took the professional golf world by storm this week, securing victories across every major tour.  Eight tours, eight wins. 

Among the victories were four by full product line Titleist Brand Ambassadors, all who trusted Titleist throughout the bag, from tee-through-green to post their milestone wins.  All four relied upon new Titleist prototype irons that begin shipping to golf shops in November.

WINNING THE WORLD OVER:  With eight wins this week, Titleist golf ball loyalists have accumulated 140 victories across the 2011 worldwide professional tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with 22.

PGA TOURBryce Molder earned his first career PGA TOUR title at the Frys.com Open, prevailing with a birdie on the sixth hole of a sudden death playoff over fellow Pro V1x loyalist Briny Baird.  Molder fired a 7-under 64 in the final round to match Baird at 17-under 267 in regulation.

FAIRWAYS AND GREENS:  Part of the story of Molder’s success can be gleaned from the statistics.  Off the tee, Molder was tied for 7th in Driving Accuracy (75%).  He also led the field in Putts Per Round (26.8) and Putts Per Greens in Regulation (1.58).  Meanwhile, Cauley was 4th in Greens in Regulation (81.9) and 5th in Putts Per Greens in Regulation (1.661).   Both players rely on Scotty Cameron Newport-style putters.

CHAMPIONS TOUR: Longtime Titleist Brand Ambassador Brad Faxon captured his first Champions Tour victory with a one-shot win at the rain-shortened Insperity Classic.  An eight-time winner on the PGA TOUR who turned 50 in August, Faxon shot a 7-under 65 in windy conditions on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead with a 36-hole 10-under 134 total.  It was Faxon's sixth start on the 50-and-over circuit.

Fowler, Molder, Faxon and Slattery each trusted Titleist from tee-to-green, including sets of new Titleist 712 Series irons, which will be begin shipping to golf shops next month. (See below for a closer look at each player's Titleist equipment.)

And then there was Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng, who won for the fifth time in her last 10 starts, further solidifying her position as the No. 1 player in women's golf.

In total, 17,436 players have teed up Titleist golf balls in events on the 2011 worldwide pro tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with 2,690 and more than all competitors combined.

PGA TOUR: Titleist Brand Ambassador Bryce Molder (Pro V1x) captured his first win on the PGA Tour, prevailing over fellow Pro V1x loyalist Briny Baird in a six-hole playoff at the Frys.com Open in Northern California.

 Molder, who closed in 7-under 64 to finish regulation tied with Baird at 17-under 267, claimed victory after rolling his Pro V1x golf ball in from 8 feet for birdie on the sixth playoff hole, CordeValle's par-4 18th.

It was the 30th win for Titleist golf ball players on the 2011 PGA Tour, more than seven times the nearest competitor with four and more than all competitors combined.

"It's such a strange dynamic, a playoff, because it's just the two of you now, and you've had nerves all day long, and there's only so long that your body can be nervous," said Molder, one of 15 Titleist Brand Ambassadors that have won at least once this season on the PGA Tour.

"And you almost kind of get through it. You still have the adrenaline and that's why a lot of times you see some great golf in playoffs."

Using his Scotty Cameron Newport 2.7 Putter, Molder led the field in Putts Per Round (26.8) and Putts Per Greens in Regulation (1.58)

Titleist Brand Ambassador Bud Cauley
(Pro V1)  had his best performance of the season, finishing alone in third at 15-under 269.

Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the Frys.com Open with 88 players, nearly seven times the nearest competitor with 13 and more than all competitors combined.

It would also end up being the winning birdie, as heavy rains washed out the final round of the event.

"I feel like my mental game is getting mature and my skills are getting better."

Pro V1x loyalist Brittany Lincicome closed in 6-under 66 to finish at 11-under 205, tied for third with Pro V1x loyalist Jimin Kang and Pro V1 loyalist Soo-Jin Yang.

• NATIONWIDE TOUR: Pro V1x loyalist Miguel Carballo dropped his Pro V1x golf ball in for three eagles Sunday to capture his second-career Nationwide Tour title and guarantee his 2012 PGA Tour card.

It marked Wei-chih's second-career Asian Tour title.

“The winning feeling is second to none and it’s even sweeter when you win at home,” said Wei-chih. “That birdie on the last hole was exceptionally crucial. I knew that it was not over as Wen-teh still had a chance to force a playoff with two more holes to play. But as he could only manage pars, I’m happy that I won."

Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the event with 95 players, more than four times the nearest competitor with 20 and more than all competitors combined. Titleist also was first in iron sets (22); and sand, lob and approach wedges (90).

It was no surprise that Titleist Brand Ambassador Kevin Na sealed last week's victory at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open with a long putt.

Na, who drained a 42-footer for birdie on TPC Summerlin's par-3 17th hole to help finish off a two-shot win, has consistently rolled his Pro V1x golf ball better than most.

He is currently No. 10 in the PGA Tour's new Strokes Gained statistic and ninth in Total Putting – not to mention seventh in Putts from Greater than 25 Feet.

In Las Vegas, Na used his Scotty Cameron Titleist R&D Concept 1 putter to finish first in Putts per Round (27) and fifth in Putter per Green in Regulation (1.611).

Team Titleist caught up with Kevin about a month ago at The Barclays to talk about what makes him such a consistent putter, which you can watch in the above video.

For a replay of Kevin's 42-foot birdie putt, check out the video below.



 Looking to add more distance off the tee, Titleist Brand Ambassador Ben Crane made an adjustment to his Titleist 910D2 driver just before the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital Open to great success.

For several years, Ben has been working with Titleist Performance Institute co-founder Greg Rose to regain ball speed he lost while suffering from back injuries.

During a recent fitting session with Larry Bobka, Titleist VP of Club Promotion, Ben put a new Bassara W 50 for Titleist driver shaft in his 910D2. He promptly recorded his first top 10-finish on the PGA Tour since April while averaging 313.3 yards off the tee for the week.

Ben posted rounds of 67-67-68-66 at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas, raising his season average driving distance by nearly two yards (283.3 to 285.1).

"We built this particular driver configuration based on a conversation with Greg Rose and Ben's desire for more distance," Bobka told Team Titleist this week. "Being a straight hitter with a delicate back, Ben needed a driver that created what I call 'easy distance.' "

The longer (46"), lighter (53g) configuration of the Bassara W 50 for Titleist shaft created more distance along with excellent launch conditions.

“Ben sent me a text after Vegas and said ‘love it, bombing it baby,’ " Bobka said. "His ball speed was 169 mph all four days of the event.”

Below are the specifications of Ben's new driver:
• 910D2 7.5º (B•2 SureFit Tour hosel setting)
• Titleist Bassara W 50-X (standard tipping)
• 46"
• D5 swingweight
• New Decade Green/Black 60R (logo underneath)

The Bassara W super-lightweight shafts, developed for Titleist by Mitsubishi Rayon, feature elastic titanium nickel wire technology for a more responsive tip section.

As with the Diamana for Titleist series, the Bassara W series matches shaft flex with specific torque values to provide high launch, good stability and great feel.

Bassara W for Titleist shaft options are available for all 910 metals via custom order at no upcharge.
