The high winds at the Australian Open may have caused some delays, but for Pro V1 loyalist Peter Senior it was well worth the wait. Battling the challenging conditions, Senior closed with an even par 72 to finish with a 4-under 284 victory total, becoming the oldest champion (53 years old) in the history of the Australian Open. The win was his first since the 2010 Australian PGA Championship.
Joining Senior in the winners' circle, Pro V1x loyalist Ariel Cañete took home top honors at the Olivos Golf Classic and claimed his second victory of the season on the PGA Tour Latinoamérica.
Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x players have now won 188 times across the worldwide professional tours in 2012, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 25 and more than all competitors combined.
Senior, a native of Australia and a regular on the Champions Tour, had 10 top-10 finishes this year, but no wins. The win was even more special for Senior as he was able to share the experience with his son Mitch.
''It doesn't get any better than this,'' Senior said. ''We've had three years on the Champions Tour where Mitch has caddied for me for the last two years. We've lost three playoffs, so it feels unbelievable to win with him on the bag.'' (Click here to watch the Golf Channel Tour Report)
As for the conditions, Sunday morning featured wind gusts that topped 50 mph - causing one television tower to fall - and players also were greeted to golf balls that struggled to come to rest on the fairways and greens as the wind howled.
"It was probably one of the toughest days I've ever seen on a golf course," said Senior.
Titleist was the top choice of more players in the Australian Open field of 156 in the golf ball category with 116, nearly six times the nearest competitor with 20. Nine of the 13 players who finished among the top 10 and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success.

PGA TOUR LATINOAMÉRICA: Ariel Cañete led a Titleist Pro V1x 1-2-3 finish at the Olivos Golf Classic where he posted a pair of 4- under par 67s on Sunday en route to a come from behind win. Cañete finished with a 9-under-par 275 victory total to earn his second title on the 2012 Latinoamérica Tour and seventh top-10 finish in the tour's first year. A first round weather delay pushed play back a day and the final 36 holes were played on Sunday.
Clodomiro Carranza and Jose Cóceres, who relied upon the new Titleist Pro V1x prototype golf ball, shared second place, two shots behind Cañete.
Titleist was the top choice of 121 players, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 16.
ASIAN TOUR: Playing the new Titleist Pro V1x prototype golf ball, Bubba Watson shot a final-round 65 at the Thailand Golf Championship to tie for second.

In total, 78 players in the field played a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, more than three times the nearest competitor with 22 and more than all competitors combined.

Albatross. Double-Eagle. No matter which name you prefer, it's no doubt one of the rarest scores in golf.
Add in a dash of excitement from The Masters, along with a pinch of the awe-inspiring surroundings found at Augusta National Golf Club, and you have the recipe for Louis Oosthuizen’s most memorable shot of 2012.
After driving his Titleist Pro V1x in the fairway on Augusta National's second hole, Louis looked down at his golf ball, situated on a downhill lie, 265 yards from the green.
Most golfers in that situation think about where to lay up. Louis' sights were set on the green. Make that the flagstick.
He pulled his 4-iron, took aim, and the rest is history.
“The ball did exactly what I wanted it to do. It came out (with) a nice strong flight. And pitched front edge which we were playing for,” said Louis. “Then the green did all the work from there.”
Did we mention it was Masters Sunday?
The exact odds of making a double-eagle (or albatross) are a little unclear. Some say it's as high as 6 million-to-1. More modest estimates come in around 1 million-to-1.
One thing we can all agree on: Louie’s shot is definitely a highlight of 2012.

When it comes to memorable shots, sticking an approach shot during a sudden-death playoff that ultimately leads to your first PGA Tour win would definitely fit the bill for most of us.
And for Pro V1x loyalist Rickie Fowler, it certainly stands out as his shot of 2012.
After making par on the final hole of regulation at the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship, Rickie secured a spot in a three-way playoff, stepped back up to the 18th tee at Quail Hollow, split the fairway with his Titleist Pro V1x and put himself into position to close out the tournament.
What happened next?
"I had a good number, and I was aiming right of the hole with the wind coming out of the right, and if I hit a perfect shot, it comes down right on the stick," Rickie said. "I hit a perfect shot at the right time."
After sticking it close – inside of 5 feet on a hole that only gave up four birdies during the final round – Rickie only needed one putt to win the playoff and secure his first career PGA Tour victory.
Check out the video above to hear what Rickie had to say about this shot and stay tuned to Team Titleist as we’ll be sharing more 2012 highlights from Titleist Brand Ambassadors and golf ball loyalists in the coming days.
