Players take many different paths to the PGA Tour. And while the twists and turns along the journey are varied, 22 of this year's 25 Web.com Tour graduates share at least one thing in common – they all trusted a Titleist golf ball for their success throughout the season.

The 2012 Web.com Tour season was full of great stories, like Titleist Brand Ambassador Ben Kohles (No. 8 on Web.com Tour money list) who turned pro and went on to win his first two starts (Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitationalthe Cox Classic). For players like Titleist Brand Ambassador Alistair Presnell (No. 23), the season was a tale of steady play that featured four top-10 finishes. And still others chose the right moment to perform under pressure, like Justin Bolli who won last week's Web.com Tour Championship at TPC Craig Ranch and jumped up the money list from 44th to ninth.

Then there was Titleist Brand Ambassador Morgan Hoffmann, who was on the outside looking in at the start of the Web.com Tour Championship. A gutsy performance that featured a 7-under par 64 in the final round moved Hoffmann into a tie for third and up the money list from 31st to 19th – securing his spot on the 2013 PGA Tour. 

The class of 2012 also features a list of players that trusted a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball to a Web.com Tour victory in 2012 including: Paul Haley II (Chile Classic Presented by Pacific Rubiales), Andres Gonzales (Soboba Golf Classic Presented by Hub International), James Hahn (The Rex Hospital Open), Lee Williams (Mexico Open Presented by Banamex), Doug Labelle II (Utah Championship Presented by Utah Sports Commission), Shawn Stefani (Midwest Classic Presented by Cadillac), Titleist Brand Ambassador Darron Stiles (News Sentinel Open Presented by Pilot), Titleist Brand Ambassador Robert Streb (Mylan Classic), Titleist Brand Ambassador Luke Guthrie (Albertsons Boise Open Presented by Kraft, WNB Golf Classic), and David Lingmerth (Neediest Kids Championship).

In total, Titleist golf balls were played a total of 2,756 times in Web.com Tour events this season, nearly seven times the nearest competitor with 415 and more than all other golf balls combined.
