Players trusting Titleist golf balls continue to top leaderboards on golf's biggest stages, as three more Titleist loyalists captured titles this week across the worldwide professional tours.

On the European Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Alexander Levy trusted his Pro V1x golf ball and a full bag of Titleist golf clubs to secure his first European Tour title with a four-shot win at the Volvo China Open.

Levy was joined in the winners' circle by the winner of the inaugural Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic, who relied on her Pro V1 golf ball to seal a one-stroke victory and by Pro V1 loyalist Hiroyuki Fujita, who won in playoff fashion at the Japan Tour's Tsuruya Open.

When asked after the win about the shot, which was struck with his AP2 3-iron, Levy said,

The PGA Tour headed up the coast of South Carolina and pulled into Hilton Head for this week’s RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Known for its narrow, tree-lined fairways and small greens, the par-71, 6,973-yard Pete Dye layout puts a premium on precision shot-making ability. And if a player wants to slip into the winner’s traditional tartan jacket, he’ll need complete control of his golf ball.
