"Well, what an awesome week really. I don't know where to start really," said Titleist Brand Ambassador Marc Leishman minutes after winning the 2012 Travelers Championship last Sunday, marking his first-career victory on the PGA Tour.
Marc went out early and posted a final round 8-under 62 to take the lead into the clubhouse – a lead that would stand as Marc waited close to two hours for the final groups to come in. What did Marc do during that wait?
"Just got something to eat and then sat down, watched a little bit of soccer. I turned it over. I didn't want to watch the golf the whole time because I would have been sweating," he said.
As the final groups closed-in on the often action-packed finishing holes at TPC River Highlands, Marc headed to the practice tee, "hit some balls and putted for a bit, and it turned out well that it was a practice session, not a warmup session. I was very happy about that."
The Travelers Championship has a rich history and recently has played host to a number of first-time winners on the PGA Tour including Pro V1x loyalists Bubba Watson (2010) and Hunter Mahan (2007).

From the moment they arrived on site at Congressional Country Club, the team has been hard at work, outfitting Titleist Brand Ambassadors with new prototype 913D2 and 913D3 drivers. Experts from Titleist's Club R&D, Club Development and Tour Promotion departments are all on hand to dial in players' club specifications, collect data and solicit feedback - the essential ingredients in Titleist's performance validation process.
