Video: Gary Woodland's Shot(s) of the Year

Titleist Brand Ambassador Gary Woodland may be best known for how far he can hit his Titleist 910D3 driver, but his most significant swings of 2011 came with his Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS putter and his Titleist MB 4-iron.

During the final round of the Transitions Championship in March, Gary stood over his Pro V1 golf ball on Innisbrook Resort's 18th green, needing to make an 11-footer for par to remain atop the leader board with only one group behind him.

Gary rolled his Pro V1 into the middle of the cup, fist-pumping what would eventually be the putt that won him his first PGA Tour title.

It was a "perfect" 4-iron in the middle of January, however, that may have been the most important shot of the year.

Gary breaks down both shots in the above video. For a replay of his game-winning putt at Transitions, check out the video below (1:48 mark).



There may not have ever been a less difficult task than picking Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Stallings' Shots of the Year.

(Well, at least one of them.)

If you watched the final round of the Greenbrier Classic in late July, you know what we're talking about.

That Sunday afternoon at the Greenbrier, Scott stood on the tee at the 169-yard par-3 18th hole at the Old White Course needing to make birdie to get into a playoff.

He swung back with his new Titleist AP2 (712 Series) 9-iron and sent his Pro V1x sailing just left of the flag, the ball landing 5 feet from the hole to set up a game-tying birdie.

About 20 minutes later, Stallings was back on the 18th tee with his new AP2 9-iron. This time, his Pro V1x slammed down on the green, just a foot or two away from the spot it landed in regulation. Scott cooly rolled in the putt for his first PGA Tour victory.

"I actually put my ball on the same tee that I used in the same spot during regulation," he said.

It was perhaps one of the most exciting performances of the year on the PGA Tour, influenced partly by a shot he hit at the Transitions Championship in March. That one you probably don't remember.

Scott explains in the above video.

Video: Bo Van Pelt's Shot of the Year

Playing late Sunday afternoon at Augusta National Golf Club is a feat in itself. Nevermind making two eagles in three holes on the back nine to climb up the Masters leaderboard.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Bo Van Pelt did both.

"It was a dream come true," he said.

During the final round at this year's Masters, Bo eagled both par-5s on the back nine, Nos. 13 and 15, setting off a couple of those loud-and-famous Sunday roars.

What he'll remember most from that stretch is the second shot into the 15th green.

After a long drive down the right side of the fairway, Bo pulled his Titleist MB 6-iron from the bag. He knew he had to hit it perfect to fly the pond in front of the green.

His Pro V1 golf ball launched high and landed soft, stopping 4 feet from the pin. The patrons erupted.

Bo called it his Shot of the Year. See how Bo described the moment in the above video.*

To say it's been a breakout season for Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson is probably an understatement.

Webb started the season 213th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Ten months, two wins, 12 top-10s and over $8 million later, Webb is now ranked 10th and gearing up to play in his first Presidents Cup.

Accordingly, Webb has hit his fair share of great shots over that period with his Pro V1x golf ball and bag full of Titleist equipment.

Perhaps most memorable were his last few swings Labor Day weekend at TPC Boston on his way to victory in the Deutsche Bank Championship.

But if you ask Webb, his shot of the year actually came several months prior at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, a tournament he didn't win. Webb explains why in the above video.

If you haven't heard, Titleist Brand Ambassador Gary Woodland hits his Titleist Pro V1 golf ball a long ways.

How far? Consider this: If Gary's hitting his Titleist 910D3 driver on the range, at least one person watching is chuckling and shaking their head. (Listen closely in the video above.)

According to the PGA Tour, Gary averaged 310.5 yards off the tee this season (though that statistic is measured on just two holes per round, no matter the club choice). He is widely considered one of the longest players on tour.

Gary also knows how to get his Pro V1 close to the pin, having finished the year ranked 13th in Greens in Regulation (69.4 percent).

Here's more proof: At the Transitions Championship this March, Gary posted rounds of 67-68-67-67 on his way to his first PGA Tour victory and one of 15 top-25 finishes on the season.

He missed the weekend just four times altogether in 2011, closing the season with 16 consecutive made cuts and a world ranking of 41st.

Earlier this year, Team Titleist caught up with Gary to talk about his driver swing sequence. Check it out in the above video.
