To be at your competitive best means never counting yourself out, giving everything you have until the final shot, and having total confidence in your equipment.
Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott proved this and more at The Barclays on Sunday by rallying to earn his first career FedExCup Playoffs victory.
Relying upon the Pro V1 golf ball and a complete bag of Titleist equipment, the reigning Masters champion fired a final round bogey-free 66 for his second win of the season, vaulting him to No. 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
In addition to Scott’s final round heroics on the PGA TOUR, Titleist golf ball loyalists were winning the world over, earning victories on the LPGA, Champions, Australasia, Japan and South African tours. Six more wins this week advances Titleist’s year-to-date victory count to 99, more than three times the nearest competitor with 31.
And with that, let's take a trip around the golfing world with the TeamTitleist Monday Recap.

PGA TOUR: The Barclays
Among the 123-player field at The Barclays, 79 players relied upon Titleist golf balls, more than four times the nearest competitor with 16. Scott closed with a bogey-free, 5-under 66 en route to an 11-under-par 273 victory total. He finished one shot clear of four players, including fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Graham DeLaet. Other Titleist golf ball loyalists finishing among the top 10 and ties included D.A. Points (Pro V1x - T6), Rickie Fowler (Pro V1x - T9) and Jason Kokrak (Pro V1x - T9).

DeLaet’s Sunday charge of 7-under-par 65, matched the low round of the day. The performance vaulted him to No. 9 in the Presidents Cup standings. With one week remaining for players to earn qualifying points, the Canadian is likely to make the International team along with Scott. The T2 finish at The Barclays was a career best for DeLaet, who led the field in Driving Accuracy, converting over 91% of his drives with his 913D3 driver and Pro V1x golf ball. DeLaet also put in a new set of Titleist prototype CB (2-5) and prototype MB (6-PW) irons in play for the first time at The Barclays.
