Confidence was the name of the game this weekend as Titleist golf ball players trusted the performance of their Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls to success across the globe.

Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball loyalists have now combined for 27 wins on the worldwide professional tours, nearly five times the nearest competitor with six and more than all competitors combined.

The 5-win weekend featured Kevin Streelman trusting a new 2013 Pro V1x to earn his first career PGA Tour victory at the Tampa Bay Championship while fellow Pro V1x loyalist Thomas Aiken recorded his second career European Tour victory at the Avantha Masters in India.

Solid play from Pro V1 loyalist David Frost resulted in a victory at Toshiba Classic on the Champions Tour and fellow Pro V1 player Ted Purdy took home top honors at the PGA Tour Lationamerica’s season opener at the Abierto Mexicano de Golf.

And rounding out the highlights, Pro V1x loyalist Stacy Lewis charged up the leaderboard on Sunday at the LPGA’s RR Donnelley Founders Cup to card her second win of the season and ascend to No. 1 on the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings.

From the Bear Trap at the Honda Classic and Doral's Blue Monster, the PGA Tour's Florida Swing has no shortage of challenging layouts and holes where players look to escape trouble. This week players will face the infamous Snake Pit (holes 16, 17 and 18) as they come down the stretch at Innisbrook's Copperhead course looking to avoid the big numbers.

And speaking of numbers, this week at the Tampa Bay Championship 106 players in the field of 156 will trust a Pro V1 or Pro V1x for their success. That's nearly five times the nearest competitor with 22 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the overwhelming top choice of the field in the sand, lob and approach wedge (164) and putter (56) categories.

Earlier in the week, we snapped some pictures of the players as they got to work on the range in hopes of charming their way up the leaderboard this weekend on the Copperhead course. 

Good luck to all of the players in the field!

In four worldwide professional tournaments this weekend, 335 out of a possible 490 players relied on a Titleist golf ball for their success. A hard charging effort by Pro V1x loyalist Kevin Kisner at the Chile Classic on the Web.Com Tour helped him edge the field for a one-stroke victory. While at the TPC Blue Monster at Doral, top-10 finishes for Titleist Brand Ambassadors Steve Stricker and Adam Scott made the WGC-Cadillac Championship another productive tune-up in preparation for this season's first major, exactly one month away in Augusta, Ga.

Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x players have now combined for 22 victories across the worldwide professional tours in 2013, more than three times the nearest competitor with six and more than all competitors combined.
